    Why does everyone hate on Red Steel?

    The search button brings up like 600 results so ill just make this post

    Personally, i think that Red Steel is the best game on the wii so far.
    Apart from the annoying cursor skip that happens occasionally, its a 10/10 game dont u think?
    The storyline is long and effective, there are a wide range of guns that u can unlock and use...
    The graphics are amazing, and so are the controls....

    Yet i see reviews giving this game 3/10's, i have not seen anything over a 6/10 (even nintendos magazine gave this a fairly low score).

    SO having said all that i would like to know what made this game a no no for you people, because i am quite surprised.

    p.s If you have a link to an already existing thread of the same subject...please post!

    Your right. I think the same thing. Of all the games I've rented for Wii so far, RedSteel kept me coming back for more unlike many others that lasted my 2-3 days until I got bored. The graphics are amazing, the sword fighting gets you up and active, plus the multiplayer isn't bad. Nice thread! You made me open my eyes.

    The graphics are decent, not amazing (though I don't care much about that). Considering how much potential the Wiimote has to be one of the best FPS control systems ever, the controls on Red Steel fell far short of what they should. The pointer glitch is inexcusable, and the controls themselves work, but aren't tight. The story didn't suck, but it was predictable. The swordplay was nice to have, but it wasn't implemented in a way that could knock your socks off. If Red Steel were on anything except the Wii, it wouldn't be worth a dime. Playing it with the wiimote is what makes it fun.

    And it is a fun game. I've enjoyed playing it. But it doesn't deserve ratings better than what it got (IGN UK gave it 7.something). Basically, somebody had to go first--and everyone else got to learn from their mistakes. I imagine Red Steel 2 will improve on every weakness of the original. The franchise has potential.

    Most gamers should ignore ratings, because they can't really discern what they mean, and they can't always understand the nature of the broad comparative nature of the ratings. Nothing gets rated in a vacuum. If you can find a reviewer that cares about what you care about, read them. Otherwise, watch the gameplay videos, ignore everyone else and make your own call. Acknowledging manifest flaws is not the same as saying a game isn't worth playing. If every game got a top ranking, rankings would mean nothing. Not acknowledging flaws is begging developers to keep making mistakes.

    I rented it, and after bringing it back to the store I really wanted to buy it, But then I waited too long and I picked up re4 for 30 bucks and it seemed like a pretty solid deal, and at the time I was thinking shooting games are shooting games but they are very distinctively different and great in their own way. When redsteel drops down in price I'll pick it up for sure.

    The graphics are nowhere near amazing, but that's not the point, the game was one of those "it had potential, but..." it just didn't strike the fancy of a lot of people. I don't have anything against it, I just had an annoying experience with the game (the "cursor skip") so I don't care to play it anymore. (Plus strikers is pretty damn addictive) As for the controls, they're ok, I do not like the way you have to point at the edge of the screen to turn, tis annoying IMO. I agree it is underrated, but I wouldn't give it more than a 6.5 on any scale, could have been a lot better had they put more effort into it.

    Not another "Why do people hate Red Steel" thread. There's a ton of these threads. Although I personally love Red Steel too, I feel there's no need to make a post about it.

    Yeah, I thought there was another too. Its ok though, as long as he got feedback it was worth opening this thread. And the older ones were when re4 wasn't released and was only a few games out at the time..So opinions change after all these other similar games came out

    Red Steel for me was good when I was playing it but now however many months after I stoped playing it doesn't seem to be as good. It is a decent game and I think it deserves a bit more than it got from reviewers but I wouldn't go as far as to say it was a perfect game or that it was the best on the Wii, its good but not great

    if u cannot read i suggest u just dont post at all.

    (On Topic)= Thanks for the replies, i too hope that Red Steel 2 fixes that annoying cursor skip, but alot of u do not seem convinced with the graphics, i would be very interested to see what matches your expectations in a future game.

    I forgot to mention about the weak sword fighting system, and yes i hate it too.

    If any one has got any details on red steel 2 then i would appreciate links
