Just completed this over the weekend.
Storyline is great although the game could do with some tweaks on the controls. For example, the camera is inverted for Left-Right movement and there is no way to customise it.
Afro Samurai made headlines with a nudity gameplay cutscene wherein Afro had to battle with topless assassins but according to my playthrough, those characters only appeared during a segment on the first level, which is about 10 minutes’ worth of game time. The other prominent female ninjas in the game who continue to make their appearance until at the end are scantily clad but they are not topless. Gameplay wise is similar to Conan and Rise of the Argonauts, with a small percentage of platforming activities. Coarse language shouldn’t be of any concern because it is already seen on many games released prior to this. Anyway, isn’t that what the local M18 rating is meant to identify and inform customers about, through the sticker labels?
I’m attracted to the game’s artwork and cover design, plus this is another game that stars Kelly Hu, one of my favourite movie personalities. Kelly Hu stars in other games as well, such as Command & Conquer: Red Alert2 and Ninja Blade.
Hopefully this game will be added into this list one day.
