    I agree with IGN's review 99%, the dragging turns with the remote are huge issue.

    wiichangedtheworld,
    why? Of course there's a lot to talk about when one of the most anticipated games on wii get such bad reviews! Espesially when IGN only rates it 6/10

    i agree. i always found ign' reviews very good. even though i am not normally swayed by reviews i have decided not to buy red steel when it comes in the UK because of the turning issue. im very competitive with games especially fps' and i know that problem will piss me off a great deal. i will probaly get nfs or super moneky ball to join zelda as my first two games. i may rent the game down the line just to check it out.

    I have to agree with the review. Although I am not an expert in FPS, this turning/aiming/reacting thing is awkward at best...

    Yea I mean this could have been fixed so easy., Take Jump out of the stupid game and hold down the C to make your analog strafe and have it default as turn. I mean comon. The game is SO hard to control to me and Moving the remote forward to zoom kills my wrist after a while

    Couple of things about red steel - Never played it but I can tell from the vids that turning control looks crappy. Why couldn't they have inmplemented a fast turn with the left and right buttons on the d pad?
    I'm prob still gonna get red steel - maybe farcry actually because of the reviews. But I've heard one complaint in reviews that there's no blood and therefore its not "red steel". But I say think about how that would look for nintendo to have a gore splattering game with blood and dismemberment in a "Launch" title. Excess gore (and even just normal blood splashes) would not be good for nintendo PR I think.

    I expect red steel to basically be an interactive gun game rather than a fast paced furious fps. And as for the sword fighting its pretty much what I expected. People thought it was going to be a completely amazing experience where every move you make would be replicated on screen... Imagine how hard that would be to implement - thats a whole game in itself. I'm expecting wii sports boxing - but with swords.
    Just my thoughts and opinions though. Red steel suffered from too much over hype.

    I reckon if you lower your expectations to reasonable levels and remember its a launch title for not only a new console - but an entirely new control system, you won't be too dissapointed. :thumbsup:
