    red steel or COD?

    I've played Wii Sports to death and I have this strange urge for a 1st person shooter. I was going to wait for FarCry but the reviews have not been great.

    I have a fresh $100 bill to drop on a game...if I lived in USA, i could get 2 for that price

    I'm thinking of either COD or Red Steel. COD doen't have multiplayer, which is annoying, but has gotten consistently better reviews. Red STeel seems to range from 5.0-8.0 scores.

    decisions decisions...

    I haven't played either so im not really in a position to recommend anything. But as you said, the reviews have been pretty bad for red steel... Isn't there like an in store demo where you live? I dont know, Just a suggestion...

    no, no in store demo (for example, my local target still has a PlayStation 2 on demo...dont think theyre getting a wii in anytime soon!)

    what made me re-consider red steel is the IGN review. At first they gave it a 6.0, then they revised it to an 8.0. Perhaps reviews are not giving it a proper chance?

    Well, i cant say you should ever judge a game by a review. This is a hard one... If i was in your position id go read some reader reviews. ALOT of them. Get a good idea what its like.

    Something to consider is this, COD has a campaign that lasts 8-10hrs for the average gamer and I think red steel's is even shorter. If you have friends, then I'd go Red Steel for the multiplayer. It might end up having lasting power over COD.

    if the controls you have problems with, you'll get use to it.

    Thendis, I got both, CoD3 is so much better. Red Steel was the first game I got w/ the Wii, I recently got CoD3 is so much better. It's awsome, I can send you a PM of a good comparison between the two if you would like.

    Super Moderator - PM me if you have any issues.
