    EDIT 2: revived an old (very old) thread instead of making a new one


    EDIT:
    It HAS NOW BEEN CONFIRMED HELL YEAH
    :UNEDIT


    Although we have had no "official" confirmation (but we know there will be one) Ubisoft have not denied a Sequel, they have said

    (these are not exact quotes i cant find the page i read them off so here is the gist of what they said)

    if we did make a sequel we would work on the sword fighting controls

    if a sequel was to occur Online would be a function we would implement

    we have n o comments to make on a red steel 2



    if you noticed not one of them say, there are no current plans to make a sequel.


    anyway, i was just wondering if one was to (and it will) will you be getting it?
    did you enjoy the first one? if yes or no why?

    i will definatly be getting it, because i loved the first one and sure with better sword fights and online the second would be a must buy (for me anyway)

    i would only buy a redsteel 2 if the following were to occur:

    - The sword was mimicked perfectly by the wii remote at a 1:1 raation, like whereever the remote moves so does the sword, perfectly (lik the bat in wii sports baseball)

    - More Gun, better controls and an online mode with alot of maps. AND sword fights in the multiplayer mode.

    If they dont have that, then i wont touch it, redsteel was a let down for me, thankfully there are alot of better FPS' coming.

    I agree red steel was a let down but for me i looked past all the downs and got on with the ups, i dont think it was a great as i hoped but i think it was better than most people say,

    I enjoyed Red Steel, I think people were far too critical and looking for things wrong with it. If you just sat down and played it, it was overall a great and really fun game. Online support would be great on that game too, imagine deathmatches with sword fights and such across the internet? SicK!

    oh it's quite possible.., and would probably be necessary to ensure successful sales of a sequel to a game that wasn't rated too well.

    Indeed. They'd have to come up with something to prove that there online is better than say: Battalion wars or medal of honor: heroes 2

    I dont think I'd buy it. It was a nice game but only because it was the only fps on the wii at that time.

    For controls they should just mimic what metroid did, I haven't played it but it seems to be getting good feedback. As for swords they should make it more in depth, maybe not 100% responsive, but more than just 3 preprogrammed slashes, maybe like 10. Add a few other improvements like some new guns and a lengthier campaign, more maps in multiplayer, and more modes, and this is a definite buy because I need a good multiplayer fps.

    A while ago, there was a job posting for a Red Steel project. Applicants must have experience programming for online, and also capable of programming RPG elements.

    I'd say it's not a question of "if", but "when".

    Personally, despite it's faults, I really enjoyed Red Steel. Especially the multiplayer, although there wasn't enough selection of guns, characters or levels.

    And I didn't like the Halo-esk features like regenerating health and such.

    Sword play was what I was hinting at with my post lol....

    Well I like the regen of health and shield. It speeds up gameplay a lot!

    i would prefer better use of the katana not more, unless of course it was better. other than that basically the things people want is what i want

    more weapons
    way more multiplayer maps
    ONLINE
    better swordplay

    I find it detracts from the realism.

    It also means you don't improve your game, you just hide until your health goes back up. Also why do it with the guns and not the swordplay? It wouldn't make sense logically.

    i like it because it makes it easier,
    but i dislike it because its unrealitic,
    i think there should be a option between the two
    or even more like halo,

    where only your shield regenerates not your health

    Not sure how that would work without altering the game.

    Reduce the amount of damage taken and include more medi-kits.

    Still, I feel that it detracted from the experience. You play as one man against a Yakuza syndicate, you shouldn't feel fine, you should feel nervous about being fired upon, even if you are a bodyguard.

    I can only second that. Except that I don't know what regenerating health have to do with Halo... I thought Halo had classic Health bars? It's more CoD2-esk. I didn't dislike it, in a fire fight, you had to take cover when you're hit. And then there was always the possibility of an approaching enemy.

    And yeah, I remember that job posting, too. Another thing was, that they were looking for programers that were experienced with the Unreal Engine 2.0 on which Red Steel was based.

    And Red Steel 2 was listed on that European shipment list of Gamestop, even though it's nothing you should count on. (The date was set to somewhen in November [around the 12th if I remember right])

    well it is a almost definate just not an official one, but i know you said its not to count on but i doubt it will be here untill at least spring 2008 (around april)

    but if you remember

    Halo had the shield that when it depleted, your health bars went down, and you had to take cover untill the shield regenerated,
