Of the things that Afro Samurai got right
, it also got some very, very simple things wrong. But developer Surge has listened and subsequently released a patch to fix the worst of the hemmoraging offenses. You can now access camera settings through the options menu (previously, you were locked into the camera of choice from all the way out in the main menu screen); the left-to-right camera can now be inverted (thank you, sweet Jesus); the Brother 6 boss fight has been "improved" (which is to say, hopefully it will suck less fighting against this annoying, multi-stage, haxor-cheating bastard of an AI); and "multiple" bug issues have been resolved (which hopefully includes a few jacked-up breakaway platforming scenes). Hm. Perhaps that admittedly flattering B- grade it earned from us is now on steadier ground.
