Summary: I had a ton of fun with this game. I found the enemy AI to be very aggressive. They really forced you out from your cover. The shoot outs were alot of fun. The destructive environments help to make the shootouts very exciting. The swordplay was quite challenging. It was difficult to pick up some of the new moves that you were rewarded. The later sword fights kept you on your toes because they had different techniques. I thought the graphics were pretty good.
Red Steel - Overcomming the Controls sensitivity and Buggyiness

Summary: My Son picked this up at GameStop used for $5.40, despite the unamious reviews about the games sensitivity with the Wii Controls. for the price he could not go wrong. I'll start off with getting the obvious out of the way...The Game Play is buggy. But, It is loads of fun and with exercising patience you will have fun trying to play it. The graphics are good, the choice of weapons are extensive and the story is entertaining.
Summary: this game is pretty good actually. sure the control is bad. but you get used to it eventually i cant really tell you about the story because i didnt really pay attention. i payed attention to it at first but it is VERY boring and VERY generic the graphics arnt BAD but they are not GOOD either but graphics dont make a game right? the sword fights are NOT good they barely recognise your movement.
Summary: This is a great game but falls short overall. The only thing is that you have to be very subtle with the shooting parts and very obvious with the sword parts. The game is lengthy (with about 45 minutes a level and 8 or 9 levels) and the story is good. The graphics are pretty good too but in some parts are look as bad as PS2. But the graphics aren't the important part because it's using the remote to shoot that's fun.
Summary: If you are a fan of a shooter game, you should think about getting this ame. There is alot of good action. You are a body gaurd and your client and girlfriend gets kidnaped and basicly you are going around doing missions for Japanese gang leaders building up your respect and trying to save your girlfriend, by shooting everybody in sight. Good luck Scott-san!
Summary: First of all I want to say that this was the first game I got for the wii back when wii first came out and I don't know why some of you guys complain about the controls. It only took me 3 days until I was already a real samurai. This game actually has better graphics than most wii games that came out at that time. It has controls that are really fun and new. I also love the AI.
Summary: This was a great launch title attempt for the Wii. It showed the capabilities of the motion sensor controls. The game really does respond to your hand motion, in terms of the aiming of the controller and the swinging of the sword. Even the throwing the grenade is pretty cool. That being said, I think the game was not tested before it was released. There are several times where I try to turn left and the game starts spinning. Kind of annoying I think.
Arm injuring fun! I played until my arms hurt... And I still want more.

Summary: A little clumsy at first, however, after 30 minutes I began to move as if I was in the game. Great game, Great concept for interaction. I see room for refinement of the sensitivity of the Wii remote and nunchuck, in a long series of follow up to this great game.
