I played the original Red Steel and it was crazy hard to control.
This game was designed for the Wii Motion Plus, making this game really easy to control once you learn the controls.
Another thing on controls is that in the options menu,you can customize your controller settings. This lets you adjust among other things, crosshair movement speed, crosshair intertia and camera turning speed. I have mine turned down really low because our living room is set up with not a lot of distance between the tv and where I sit to play.
Now to the game itself.
The game blends shooting and sword combat, for example, you can shoot an enemy in the legs to drop him to his knees then rush him and with the swing of your arm you will execute him mercilessly, or shoot him in the face to stun him and run up to him and impale him with the thrust of your arm.
I have not completed the game, but there are some really cool elements here and the sword combat...
First off Im 36 and I dont typically write reviews, but I like this game so much, I decided to do so. It truly feels like a movie that you play! Highly recommended! The sword play is so real and unique... you can do this with any other consel.
Its a great game...love the sword action, and gun action. Its a good time. I dont consider myself a gamer at all. Most games I play are alot of fun at the beginning..but then they get too hard. eventually, I just stop playing cuase its not fun anymore. Not this one though. The way I explain it is that its hard enough to keep your interest, but not so hard that you hate it.
I like the game play. You dont just run around and shoot a bunch of people. Its more of a skill...if you can it that. You stun people, then use special-moves to finish them off. There a small cut-scene for every kill...but its not annoying as you may think.. Its actualy pretty cool, and only lasts for a fraction of a second.
The original Red Steel, released back during the Wii launch of November 06, was a major disappointment to most. It tanked critically, yet managed to be a commercial success. The game promised a fast and precise controlled game where a mix of swordplay and fire fights shower the game. Unfortunately, a rushed release and lack of knowledge about Nintendo's new device made Red Steel (1), a poor game. After nearly 4 years, Ubisoft has finally managed to fulfill on Red Steel's promises, the sequel is a reboot to the original, with ties only in name and general concept. Red Steel 2, is very much an improved game, it controls like butter, yet has several faults that may well turn down this as a purchase for some.
RS2 is the second game to be released for use EXCLUSIVLY with the WiiMotion Plus device. This little add on grants players unprecedented precision and accuracy, and as Wii Sports Resort proves, it works very well. Your motions are now registered 98% of the time; your left...
