not for kids.

Afro samurai is only for adults and parents you need to know that Afro samurai is in extremely violent video game that lets you cut people in half and you see gallons of blood spilling everywhere there's no sex in this game however there is partial nudity in the game where you have to fight the naked female enemies also characters use constant strong language throughout the game and Afro smokes a cigarette as he fights.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 16+

Fun.But quick

This game is a good hack n slash for Xbox 360.It's gory and has one level with topless girls in it and cursing all in it,its no problem for a normal 15 year old.You can rent it and beat it,you can choose what to chop off which is fun.But the camera angles are not good. No kiddies here about 15 and older. 6/10
