Summary: Just get Red Steel 2 it is better in every signal way it's like night and day. I know alot of people don't want to give the second one a chance because the first one is so bad but it really is MUCH improved.
Summary: This game could have been good. It was good at first but then it's huge diffulculty spikes and stupid AI ruined it. There is a split screen multiplayer but only one game mode and only 4 maps that aren't that good. In the end this game is frustrating.
Summary: 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.
Summary: Other than one or two games wii's shooter market is horrible and lead that pile of bad games is Red steel. This is the second game I bought for my wii the day I got it and I have regretted that ever since. I first started up the game and played the first level and it was hard. Not the game itself was hard but I had never played a wii before and the controls were impossible to figure out and remember while eight guys are shooting at you.
Summary: The thing about this game is, it really is a solid idea. There is no better way to utilize the Wii's unique controls than with a shooter with a bastardized "bullet time" and sword controls. But that is where the good ends. The game is frustrating. Bottom line. The action is broken up by sword fights which feel awkward and control even worse. There are combos but don't even bother to learn them. They have no use outside of the training dojo where you learn it.
New controls are the only thing this game is good for

Summary: If this were your standard FPS it would get terrible reviews. The sword doesn't match how you swing the wiimote, it just swings a direction when you swing. There are only certain times when you can use the sword. The controls aren't perfect but they're decent.
Summary: OK, I know that many of you have been waiting to play this game because you have heard about it for such a long time but let me tell you that it isn't worth it. I bought this game because i thought it would be really cool but it is full of bad A.I., glitches, and very poor voice acting. The game play isn't much better and the plot isn't very well done, it feels like it was pushed to production. The A.I. is very stupid.
