Rated 8 out of 10 by AGC gamer28 fun and challenging
I really loved this game. The controls were great and almost responsive. In the sword fights, the controls can sometimes be unresponsive, which can be frustrating. Here are the pros and cons. Pros: -it has pretty good graphics -the controls were great during the gun fights -great weapons the sword fights are fun. Cons: -can be frustrating -controls can be unresponsive during sword fights -needs more variety in weapons. The story in red steel is decent, you go on a date with your fiance and she gets kidnapped by her father's rival gang. You have to rescue her. I think that the story was a little shallow, but I don't think anybody cares much for the story. What I loved about this game is the level design and the guns. My favorite level was the creepy carnival style place. My favorite weapon to use was the shotgun, it is a really good weapon. Overall, I think that red steel is a really fun game, I really enjoyed it. If you are looking for a good FPS, red steel is a great choice.
Rated 10 out of 10 by CeCeAlldai Can't wait to get Part 2!
Before I bought Redsteel I was nervous since some reviews were good and some where bad, after looking at the screenshots and watching all the videos I just had to get it. First I would like to say that this game is great for it's price, so if your looking for a fun shooting and sword fighting game this is for you, I was able to pick it up for a little under $7, which you can't beat. The story is easy to understand, it kind of reminds me of super Mario bros when Mario as to save peach. At first it might seem a little difficult to control but once you get the hang of it, it'll get better, not easy but better. It has good gameplay iv'e been playing for about 3 days straight and only beat 16% of part 1of 3. Also, if your worried about getting a pre-owned game no worries if it doesn't work you can bring it back within 7 days just save your receipt. To conclude my review I would like to say that this game is awesome and you should pick it up today!
Rated 6 out of 10 by metaridley an OK shooter
well...where shoule i start?? i think that the gameplay is not the best it is somewhat annoying and hard to use but that doesn't make it a bad game its still fun but tou gan beat in abot a day,maybe two the graphics are simply the wiis limited standerds so not much to say about that...the sound is very appealing and its really great,now it is a short gaME THAT YOU CAN BEAT WITHIN A DAY WITH NOT A WHOLE LOT OF REAPLAYABILLITY (caps sorry) so yeah...my conclusion is that is a good shooter but its not COD or anything i say you should rent it or if you really enjoy having games game stop has it for $5.99 wich is nice price,but my oppinion is to skip this and buy the sequel it is longer better graphics motion control and its a lot more enjoyable,if you want you can read my review on that... *note:if you happen to find this bundled with no more heroes,then buy it it has a semi fun game (red steel) and a very awesome action game (no more heroes)
Rated 4 out of 10 by A wannabe pilot. It's not bad, but not good
it's not a terrible game, the creators were trying, but it's not very good. I mean, the guns are bulkier and less detailed than in other shooters like call of duty. also in the sword fights i find the controls to be a split second delayed. and when the enemies die, they often look like they were thrown into the wall insead of getting shot by a walther p99, sometimes their legs bend way too far back and it looks like i kiced them in both knees. and you can't shoot your enemies through thin materials, you have to shoot them away first. and the opening screen I find confusing. And the storyline looks just slapdash and the enemies keep saying the same things over and over and over. i get tired of being called a murderer all the time. a good thing though is that you can spare your enemies if they run out of ammo. sometimes it's hard to tell where you're supposed to go. It gets so confusing. it's not bad, but not good.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Louie33 Good Shooter
Red steel, a great game if you ask me. The game had good plot to it and gun shots and sword fighting were prefect. Also, it had a pretty good challenge, for its type of game. The controls and graphics could be a little bit better though. More over, the Interface was amazing, except the responsiveness on opening doors, and pin point shooting could sometimes be a little frustrating. OK this game is about you being the boyfriend of the daughter of the yakuza big shot, named Sato . Ok typical some gang starts shooting at Sato and his daughter, you get knocked out at the crossfire. You wake up, get a pistol and start having some fun. The gang steels your girlfriend, and expands a quest around the world to find her. The game is really fun, and all the places you go. At the end of the first mission almost, you get a sword. That is probably the best part of red steel. Well, that is my review of red steel.
Rated 10 out of 10 by readypembroke Really good Shooting Wii game!
First of all, this is great game! The graphics aren't bad and the controls are good (You can also change the fire button from B to A). The cool part of the game (what I think) is that Ubisoft somehow took the Unreal 2.5 engine and used it with Physx (same physics that Nvidia owns). The game is about some people take away your girlfriend and eventually you get involved with gang stuff and you go make some of the top people go on your side. The sword fighting is good, but sometimes it could possibly make your rage like I did. The game sometimes gets choppy but somehow still playable. Also sometimes your cursor will go haywire and mess up a little bit. The multiplayer I played like for 5 minutes and it was like the Old School mode in Call of Duty 4 where you go pick up guns from the map. This game is a must buy! If Red Steel 2 is like this one, then I will have to buy it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Hrrsn Good Multiplayer game
This game I would say is most definitely best when playing with four people. The story is weak. A white dude named Scott traveling to Japan and killing everybody? Including top swords masters? Not likely. Now, Red Steel 2 looks way better than this, but I'm not writing a review for that. My favorite level was fighting the ninjas because that part was the one with most challenge. The grenades were an eyesore. While the controls for throwing the grenades were good, the fact that they sometimes blow up in mid-air sucks. My friends and i were playing and I happen to throw a grenade, (it also leaves a white trail from the thrower) and it happens to explode in mi-air, catching everyone off guard, but it also caught their attention. They immediately looked at the trail, came to my position, surrounded me, and chucked in a couple grenades. I died. If this is your first game for the Wii besides Wii Sports, then ok. If not, and if you're look me, who has fifteen games and it is your sixteenth, then you feel like smashing it. It is fun for multiplayer, remember that, so I guess you don' necessarily have to smash it, keep it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Kablammo!!!! excellent game
I heard about this game from a friend, and so I tried out and I loved it so I bought it. Now it's one of my favorite games. Gameplay (controls, sound, and graphics): The gameplay is incredible, with excellent explosion effects, cool sound effects, and easy to learn controls. The responsiveness is great, and although wii isn't known for its graphics, this one is great graphic - wise. Difficulty: Even on easy the game is very hard in places. However when you beat a hard part, it is really satisfactory. Story:You are about to meet your fiance's father for the first time when an attempt is made on his life. You save him, but your fiance is kidnapped.You travel around the globe from L.A. to tokyo in order to get her back.It involves Quite a bit of shooting, and can be confusing in places, but if you go with it, it eventually explains itself (sorta)
Rated 9 out of 10 by die hard nintendo fan pretty good fps
I thought this game owned. Ubisoft definitely mastered the controls for the game it was so easy to get headshots with just about all the weapons the aiming on the game is excellent. The graphics were pretty decent. The sound quality was excellent i thought. I was kinda disappointed with the sword fighting the motion sensitivity was very glitchy but for everything else i thought the sensitivity was very good. I definitely recommend this game if you are looking for a decent fps for the wii. The graphics could have used a bit of work but still pretty decent. It was very fun throwing grenades left and right killing everything. The sniper rifle was definitely the best. The game is pretty easy at most points but can get semi challenging near the end. I especially recommend this game. If you want a game that is somewhat challenging i recommend this game.
