Afro Samurai Demo Hits Xbox Live

A demo for Namco Bandai's hack-and-slash title Afro Samurai is now available for download on Xbox Live in North America.

Afro Samurai, based on the anime series starring Sam Jackson, earned fair reviews following its January release. The game was criticized for its short levels and fun, but repetitive combat. nope "May not be a buy for me, but I always enjoy a simple hack and slash demo," said demo aficionado/Xbox Live user zfair899, who added: "The NG2 and SWTFU demos are insanely addictive."
