    Best game for swordplay??

    Hi all,
    We just got a Wii for the family for Christmas. So far the kids and I love it. We have played the heck out of Wii sports. I am now looking for a good game with logs of sword/lightsaber type play. Like a first person shooter, but with sword instead. Most sword games I have read about on gamespot and ign are not getting strong reviews. I would love to get your feedback on one you have and like. Also, if the game allows two players to fight that would be great, but single player is ok if the sword play is good. Hopefully that all makes sense.

    Thanks for any input,

    Flanman

    well the best so far would be redsteel. but the swordplay isnt so good. there is alos battle of the pacific, but it doesnt use motion control for the sword. you should wait for redsteel 2 which comes out next year.

    Yeah, I've been waiting, and waiting, and waiting for a good sword game to come out. I mean, it's a no-brainer!
    GAME OVER

    Currently there are just a few games with swordplay in them, and all have their plus and minuses. Here are the ones I know about:

    Red Steel - the game has swordplay but the mechanics weren't that great and the motion control, I thought, was subpar

    The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess - a great game with great storying line. Unfortunately the sword fighting part is alot of just shaking the remote.

    Lego Starwars: The Complete Saga - a really fun game to play with friends that runs through all 6 starwars episodes. Again, just like Zelda, swinging your lightsaber is more just a waggling the remote.

    Soulcaliber - I have not had the chance to play this game, and heard that although it was fluid the game didn't respond as well, but thats only from what I have read

    Dragon Blade: Wraith of Fire - if you want the best "realistic" swordplay game you can get this will be it. The graphics suck, the storying is horrendous, the gameplay can be repeatitive, but it fullfills that complete action "i am gonna kill everything" arcade style game. The boss fights had good mechanics though. The swordplay takes exact moves, swing left swings left, up swings up, etc.

    So as you can see its what your aiming for. If you want a good rounded game, I say Zelda, if you want the most "true" swordplay out at the moment and nothing else matters Dragon Blade would be it, or if its more group fun (the other 2 are one player only), I would suggest lego starwars.

    As people mentioned previously, Red Steel 2 comes out in 2008 which will hopefully fix control issues and improve, and in 2008 is Star Wars: The Force unleashed which is touted it will be "the" lightsaber game using the remote to its fullest. Plus you will be able to lightsaber duel in the wii version. If you can wait, I would wait for Star Wars: The Force unleashed.

    I heard about that new StarWars game on E3 ,but I have yet to see it. The only game that utilizes the Wiimote as a sword so far is Redsteel. I found the gameplay to be pretty descent. Overall the game is fun and satisfying. Maybe you should give it a try.

    Sonic's back with his old voice on Brawl, what more could you ask for.

    GAMES
    Wii: Metroid Prime 3, Zelda TP,Sonic and The Secret Rings
    Gamecube: Sonic Adventure Battle 2, Timesplitters Future Perfect, SSB Melee, Metroid Prime 2.
    Virtual Console: Super Mario 64, Super Mario Bros 3,DK Country 3,Super Metroid.
    PS2:Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3.

    Thanks all for the feedback. It looks like I will maybe rent Red Steel and a few of the other and wait for the 2008 releases.
