    bland steel

    in this moment right now im like a lost soul roaming the world of the living because of the fact that i still dont have a wii console.


    but thank the lord that i have a friend that does and im practically living there .
    he must be pissed off each time i go there cause i dont let him play his wii cause theres only one controller.

    that said he has the obvious wii sports the awe inspiring zelda and bland steel....oops i mean red steel,red steel is a game that made me realize some of the wiis weak spots that could ultimately spell its doom.


    red still is a game for the wii from the ground up ,its ssupposed to show up the wiis control dynamics and what the wii is capable off ,that said it fells short

    when i played it it felt kinda like election day......ur president promises u the world and a great future but when hes elected all the crap hits the fan and the promises are gone with the wind.


    lets start with the fact that this is a FPS game that uses the wii mote and nunchuck......the fps is almost dead ass slow & almost nonexistent,it would have been better to play it with the classic controller,that is the biggest flaw and it was supposed to be the biggest strenght,what nintendo stands for is gameplay not graphics,
    and the only reason i find myself playing red steel is its graphics not gameplay.


    and the multiplayer outright sucks!!!!.......only 2 players and the split screen is ancient and sucky!!!

    red steel is a deceptive name for this game cause i didnt find a single drop of blood anywhere even when slashing away with my trusty katana.
    but thers no denying that red steel is a beatifull game graphically speaking from the old dojos trought the seedy neon glowing seedy backgrounds,and the best thing are the explosions light effects rain everithing is pure eye candy,but what holds it back its the enemies in the game and the main character and the lame ass cut seens that belong to a N64 game and a bad one at that.the game musical score its great and its engaging but the voice acting is very painfull and the actors try too hard to speak with a japanese accent.

    in conclusion all that talk about gameplay not graphics does not apply to red steel because the only strength of the game is its graphics not its gameplay.

    if ur looking for a new gameplay out of this world u better buy the medal of honor game,while the game isnt as pretty as red steel the controls put red steel to shame,or wait for the Metroid wii game instead or wait for the price of this game to drop and buy it or exchange it to a braind dead friend for wii sports........wait wii sports is way sweeter than red steel.

    that is all!!!!

    Its a launch title - The PS2s launch titles were a load of shit too... and look how that turned out.? Tekken 2 with better graphics - Dynasty warriors - ridgerace. All launch titles suck ass. Only reason zelda is great is because its a GC game they spent an extra year making it into a wii title...

    The controls are the bomb. Sorry you have having such difficulty.

    Two different movements to throw grenades, reload and open doors/flip switches with the nunchuck. Many sword fighting moves involving both controllers moving.

    Very well done in my opinion.

    I haven't played it so I can only go so far, but damn was Red Steel a dissapointment. And all the PRO reviewer, the guys who do this for a living, agreed. The game got TERRIBLE reviews across the board. I was so pissed because I was looking so forward to this game. It's ok though. It's only one title... and it's a launch title. The concept of Red Steel is amazing and if they can pull it off with better controls and an all around tighter game, then I believe they have something special on their hands... as of right now, it was released and failed.

    The Wii controls are great for first person shooters. I've played Call of Duty and I think the controls work pretty well.

    The controls work fine. It is just very difficult to turn quickly in RED STEEL, the controller seems to lack 'speed' near the edge of the screen like in a PC game or COD3. But apart from the turning issue, Ive heard the experience is still pretty immersive, and with a bit of practice (as with anything) becomes quite enjoyable, just not as fast as a PC shooter. (Besides, this is the first shooter on a 1week old console. PC shooters have been developing and evolving now for almost 20years).
