Red Steel 2 - Game Only
if you own a wii, you need this game in your library. it is really easy in the beginning but it does get very challenging later on. the controls work perfectly with the game. it feels like you are actually wielding a samurai sword. and changing from ninja to gun is very quick and easy so the action has no pause. the wii motion plus makes it so if you swing at a 38.75456 degree angle, so does your sword. in other words, it makes the experience feel very precise and smooth. the graphics are superb for the wii's capabilities. the glossy textures fit the game nicely. i did not find the storyline to be very interesting. i just could not get in to it. the music got repetitive sometimes, but that was not a big deal because it went with the game well. this game is taking asian samurai fighting and putting that in to an old western setting. it is a weird concept, but it works just fine. this is a great game that you should definitely pick up.
The wii never looked so good!
Red Steel 2 is by far the best game on the wii personaly I think it's on of the best games ever the hit the face of the earth. You play as the last of the kusagari who has a wimpy katana and no speicial moves but evrything gets a whole lot cooler after you defeat the notorius Payn (yes I think it's cheesey to ) any way once you get the sword you can get all kinds of speicial moves including: The Cobra,The Tiger, The Dragon, and the bear it is the coolest looking game on wii with nicley polished graphics I never thought the wii could look this good it's just amazing. the game play is obviosly the greatest part of the game it actually does fallow your evry move it's so awsome tacking people out. I beat the game today and I got it yesterday not that it's such a short game I just played it for hours evry second I could. If you had this game you also woulden't be able to put the controler down, and just a heads up it will hurt your feet for standing so long!
Not just bad. It's WOW bad.
I haven't played a game like this since Sega Genesis. The whole thing is just a bunch of rooms. Leave the room and everything resets. It is not an "open" world. The quests are idiotic. They had to spend all the money on the control system and didn't spend anything on the actual gameplay. Please PLEASE do not buy this. It had potential but instead it is just the biggest step back in time to bad gaming the Wii has ever seen.
fun as long as your not lazy
I think the controls mostly make sense,the katana is beast,and the storyline isn't too cheesy.
short but amazing
I completed this game in about three days. the controls were amazing but almost the the same as the first. the story line was great but the only problem is that once you complete the story you cant go back and upgrade your weapons. other than that an o.k game. the graphics had a good blend of a comic book and other games. the sword play was the best part of the whole experience. the story line was rich but short and the replay value would be a possible 4 out of 5. my over all reveiw. 5 out of 5.
What to hope for...
Though, the first Red Steel had some glitchy parts, last-gen graphics, and not top of the line controls, it was also one of the first games ever for Wii not to mention the first FPS for the system. With many years ahead of the first one, there should be huge improvements in all those areas, especially with the Wii Motion Plus extension added to give more realistic sword fighting moves. Another thing I've noticed is that from beta gameplay, the sword fighting looks more freestyle than the more "limited" movement of the first one. I think the setting will make this game more crazy than the first. This game looks like it will be going from Asia/respect to Dirty West/badlands. It will also feel more action packed and a game that will make you feel "more in control". I hope for weapon improvements and swords and the game should be very awesome! Lastly, like the first game, it was decently challenging when it came to sword fighting, but not very challenging when it came to shooting. Above all, the length of the first one was very good and I hope it's just as long in the second one.
Very Fun But Short...
Its a good game. Love the sword fighting; its the best part! The gun sound could be a lot better, especially on the machine gun that you can buy. Grafics could be better too; they were a little plain, not a whole lot of detail...Other than those couple flaws, its a good sword fighting game. What I want to see is Multiplayer so you can dual your friends... that would be cool!
good but too short
This game is good but i beat it in a day and it has no replay value. RENT THIS
this is an AMAZING GAME!!!!!!its controls are FLAWLESS!! its graphics are good,length kinda short but with harder difficulties to keep you playing.and different ways to play. trigger happy moron? or ninja warrior? the choice is yours!!!
ok this game is absolutely amazing the controls are great the moves are great the cutscenes are great and i love almost everything about this game. the only thing that i dont like is that its too short. i beat this whole game in 5 hours. yep its that short but dont get me wrong it is very fun but you cant even go back into the story once your done with all your money to buy everything u didnt before. u can go back but its a challenge mode and u try and get the most money u can so its kindof dissapointing. i highly recommend this to everyone who owns a wii and likes to play a good game. at first i thought this game would be the best game to come to the wii but because of its lack in length i wouldnt say it is but still get it or rent it i do reccomend renting it if u just want to beat it cuz it only takes a day to beat unless u want to spend your money of course.
