    Is Red Steel any good with the Wii? Like, if you slash in a specific direction with your sword with it actually slash in that VERY specific direction on screen? Like every move you make is an exact replica fo yourself? And can you block and ****? That'd be out of this damn world...

    Thanks in advance.

    I have Red steel and i hate it.
    It's really weird to control.
    The slightest movement with the wii mote and you're looking up or down.
    People might say I haven't given it enough time but this game gets a BIG thumbs down.

    I'm torn over Red Steel. The control is awkward. You get used to it but even after getting used to it, the control still feels a tad awkward. Besides the control, I think the game is kinda cool. Seems like people are always dogging it but I think it's underrated. I'd score it a 6.5 out of 10.

    I don't have it, but I played it at my friend's house before I got my Wii. The controls are very awkward, but once you get used to them and kind of figure out their "weak" spots and avoid them, it's not that big of a deal. The graphics: you either love 'em or hate 'em. Some say the character models resemble "paper cutouts". I think the graphics are just f#%king awesome. Definitely next-gen IMO. Multiplayer is just too fun. I would give it a 8.5/10.

    OMG. Red steel is great IMO. felt like i was holding a gun for real. the controls were kinda' dodgy but after a while it became natural, its still a good game.

    Thanks for all your answers but this still doesn't quite answer my full question. Say if you have a sword, does it move in every direction you do?

    yes, but the moves are preconfigured. the direction you swing only makes one of those preconfigured moves.

    Hello? Can't anymore say whether swinging in a very specific direction is an exact replica on the screen?

    I think the predetermined moves are better, it all depends on your style of gameplay.

    when you swing your remote your sword swings, so to that extent yes.

    your only in sword fights part of the time, and during that your "locked on" to the target. you dodge and parry with your left hand, your small sword. when you flick left it throws the sword left to parry... so kinda?

    special moves require you to throw both hands up and down (then out sometimes) and this is done in game the same, both swords go up then down onto the enemy.

    you cant hold your hand up in the air and wave it to make your player hold his sword up and swing it though, no.

    The simple answer to the movement question is NO. The sword will not do whatever you do. It's as if you're using a regular controller and pressing A over and over again...that will bring about the same result as when you swing your controller like a sword. Different combinations of buttons can change what happens with the sword, but again, you will not be able to control the sword as if it's actually in your hand.

    You didn't ask about the gun, but with it, you do have a much more realistic feel to it. When you rotate your arm, the arm on the screen rotates and the gun turns whichever way your arm does.

    a swing of your arm in a sertain direction will trigger an on screen swipe in that direction so it's almost as if it is a direct movement. and yes, you block and parry with your left hand weapon. the game is sweet and you should get it. very easy to beat though
