I loved this game mainly because i loved the tv show. The likness is amazing. i love the art work the story and most of all the bullet cutting. I recommend this game to anyone who likes sword games.

The platforming gets old fast, but there's always a group of bad guys just around the corner. and the dialouge between scenes is often hilarious.

not really a button masher

ok, anyone who thinks this game is just another button mashing hack-and-slash isnt goin to like this game, because honestly, it takes a little strategy with the combos and special moves to get through it decently. it isnt as in depth as alot of games, but keep in mind that it is a licensed game made from a tv show. as far as that goes, its one of the best ive seen from that formula and comes across akin to games like Ninja Gaiden, God of War, Onimusha, etc. at least we didnt get another Zombie Ninja Pro-am, and i think everyone should at least be glad of that.
i do not watch the cartoon and know nothing about Afro or what is really goin on in the story of the game, but the story seems interesting enough for the game.
it still comes across as a very basic and easy to play game, given that you get used to all aspects of the fighting system and the sometimes difficult camera. overall, its a very good game that you should absolutely rent and try for at least a couple sittings (i honestly never understand why and how people can really say a game sucks when they only play it for 30 mins).

Creative, imaginative, great narrative and story.

You don't have to be into anime to enjoy this game. You do how ever have to have patience, because learning the different combos and executing them takes time, but it's worth it. Hit your select button and you will see a list of combos. Learning some of these will help you in some of the tougher battles and make the game very enjoyable and satisfying.

The music is one of the best elements of the game. During certain scenes the music would come in and I caught myself saying out loud, oh-my-god this is such a great game.

Visually the game is beautiful. Each location is different, almost every fight is in a different place.

The camera does need work, but believe it or not you do get use to it. You just learn to work with it the way it is.

At first I had some reservations, but as I kept playing I realized they have done something wonderful here and I could not stop playing.

If your patient and willing to take the time and learn this game you will not be disappointed. Those of you who have played through it and liked it know what I mean.

My rating is a 9.5 because of the camera.
