I just got a Wii for Xmas along with WiiPlay, Red Steel, Zelda, and RE:Umbrella Chronicles. Almost every game I've played so far (haven't even budged Zelda or RE) has been exceptional. I picked up on Red Steel right away with it's control scheme. I like it a lot! It's very immersive and takes a lot of coordination to get right. The story is cliche of course, but I like the action. It feels right! The swordplay is just as good.
Why did this game get condemned for it's controls? Perhaps we have a lot of non agile players out there!
