    Jump off a bridge and count the second it takes for you to hit the ground. Then come back and post it.

    it'll probably be a hit or miss for most people. it took me a little bit to get a handle of the controls. and i also had to learn that i can't just run around shooting up people...for me, there is a lot of waiting for the enemy to come to me so i can get a clear shot (i guess strategy is a positive word to use). i actually like the sword fighting. the one thing that it really does is show that the future of FPS on the Wii could be truely immersive experience.


    you should also take a look at the red steel sub forum...you'll find your answers there...

    I haven't played it because of the reviews.

    Red Steel Reviews

    That is a link that has most, if not all, the reviews done for Red Steel and the average is 69% which for me, is definitely not something I'm willing to shell out $55 bucks for.

    Dont get it... if youre looking for a good fps get call of duty 3, or wait for farcry. Or just get rayman because you can shoot plungers at bunnies...YAY!!! Controls are too difficult on red steel, maybe ubisoft could fix that if they made red steel 2.:prrr:

    Red Steel is a good game but mine every now and then spazzes out on me maybe its cuz im not used to it or too much light interfering with the senser bar but its at least worth a rent. .

    What the hell is that supposed to mean? It's a legitimate question buddy, half the reviews that people make about anything are horse ****, he wanted the true reactions from some people. Lighten up a little, if you have nothing good to say, or constructive, don't say anything at all.

    Nah, it's the fact that there are 4 or 5 posts talking about the same thing right below this one... If he went through the trouble to press the New Thread button, I am sure he saw them... so why clutter up the site with the same bullshit?

    The game is fun for a while but I'm starting to get a bit bored with it. If it had online MP then I'd keep it but I plan to trade it in.

    I like the game alot yes it has a bit of a learning curve but that adds to the game not take away from it.. I didn't buy it at first because of all of the bad reviews but I am the type of person that likes games for what they are and Resteel is just what it claims to be an FPS with a new control scheme. I didn't like at first but now I love it. Very nice graphics and special effects (partical and smoke).I like the menu interface and the 4 way multi-player death matches I have with my family..brothers and cousins...! Give it a shot, rent it first if you don't wanna shell out 50 bucks but at this price it is one of the good games out for the Wii. Like they said either you LIKE it or you Don't there no real in between for this one. Hope this helps...?

    I actually am really impressed with the game
    i dont think the controls are difficult at all
    but i guess thats just me

    Its all based on your preference, I'd rent it first if you are unsure.

    red steel aint so bad

    Red Steel, i think is a good game. they maybe shoulda worked on it a bit more though. The sword fighting mechanic is creative but unlike the gun fighting (which captures your arms near perfectly) a swing of the remote while sword fighting gives you a pre-programmed swing. With that said, the japanese-style music, cut-seens and menus give it a good theme. It's not spectacular but it's worth getting.

    I expect red steel to be halfway between a lightgun game and a fps. Def not Halo...
    People expected too much from this title. I mean the swordfighting I expect to be closer to wii sports boxing than anything else. It would be a game in itself if the sword behaved exactly as you are holding it. - a fps beat-em-up or something... Thats too much to ask for people at this stage. Its a new console - a new control system. We're not at the stage of "the matrix" yet...

    I picked up this title on launch day and I will probably be trading this title in on Friday.

    I don't hate the game, but I have to say that this game is not for me really. I like FPS games to an extent, I'm not uber crazy about them, but I enjoy them from time to time.

    The controls aren't horrible, however they could use some retooling and more control options such as modifying turning speeds and having a button to lock from turning by accident when enemies are at the corners of the screen.

    One of my biggest gripes of the game is the story and dialogue. I might be able to tolerate this game a little more if I could skip those story scenes with the terrible acting and terrible script. The whole "gaikokujin"(外国人) or "gaijin"(外人) for short, in the world of the Yakuza seems kind of bland to me. The story could've been better. It's too campy for my tastes.

    The graphics aren't amazing, but it's a launch title, no one fully takes advantage of a system's hardware at launch. I've already heard news of a sequel in the works.

    N-Europe: News: Red Steel Sequel Is Planned

    I'd be willing to give the franchise another shot however I might give it a rent instead to be sure I'll be satisfied with the title.

    agreed. if you accept it for what it is its F#n awesome. think of it more as an arcade shooter with a nice FPS twist and a splash of gimmicky yet VERY FUN swordplay. shake lightly and serve lead to all the baddies that want you dead!
