This game definitely had potenial to be at least good but redsteel 2 was great, i played this game it wasn't bad but they could put more work in the graphics and blood in this game at least.
Its not a bad game and only costs £4.99, better than the sword fighting in Wii sports resort, the only let down for me were the rubbish Online modes, this game is basically the foundations and building block for a pretty solid red steel 2, red steel 2 is much better but for only £4.99 I say go check your nearest gamestation, its worth playing. PS. I wish there were blood n gore and finishing moves ie. Slice across the stomach and the guts spill out, or chop off the limbs eg. The head....
@ neilG123 Being one of the best games on the Wii isn't much of a compliment, considering the shameful number of quality games on Wii, especially the ones that aren't developed by Nintendo. I played Red Steel when it first came out, and it was pretty horrible.
It's not as bad as the 5.5 rating makes out. Sure, it's not the best game ever, but it's pretty good fun and the graphics are actually some of the best on the Wii. I'd give it about a 7.5. Get it cheap and don't expect it to be modern warfare and you'll probably have some fun with this. I think the explosions are worth getting the game for alone.
I definitaly dont think red steel is one of the bast wii games out there, but i am insanely excited for RS2
Wow, thats one of my favourite Wii games. I think that the wii shouldnt be compared to the EXTREME GRAPHIC consoles like the ps3 and the xbox 360. This is a fun game.
I would like to at least give this game a try, but I will take his advice and not expect much. As for Red Steel 2 on the other hand, that looks awesome, I can't wait for that one. This'll probably be similar to Killzone where the first one was considered just alright and the second one is considered a masterpiece.
wow gamespot does well to make this game look crap. ive got a mate whos says its really good but i think ill have to wait for redsteel 2
what wuld be lol is a cheat that lets you fight with a uzi during sword fights. lol some retrard charges you and you just let loose with a uzi
well the fact that one sword fight is against a fat guy with a baseball bat cough cough mafia coughf coughf deadliest warriorcough cough
intresting the swords are accurate. the yazuka (japanese mafia pretty much) does use swords nunchucks ect and traces its roots to samurais
Haha, bad game, great review. Pretty much sums it up too, if you don't expect much, its not the worst game ever, but the dialogue is awefull.
Wow, the whole aiming/turning thing really messes with my eyes. Had this game come out later in the Wii's life cycle, it probably would have been better.
