Red Steel is far from being a "Good Looking Game". In the first few levels, the cut-scenes look more like someone cut out some paper figurines and moved them around on an out-of-focus background. Later on it starts to look a little better, but it still fails to deliver a clear picture. The actual world looks alright, but its definitely not Hi-Def.
From the Wii, can you expect anything less than great? Shooting can get a little tiring after a while, but what can you expect? The sword fighting is the best part though, it never gets tiring. There are so many moves to use, that mastering them all would be quite a feat.
It has voice acting. Thats all I can say, nothing else stands out. It doesn't have the best soundtrack and the music always gives away when an enemy is around (which I know a lot of people like).
Multiplayer is fun if you're playing with people who know how to play the game. It's a hard game to learn and teaching new people isn't much fun. Every gun that was in the single-player is in the multi-player.
Red Steel shows off the gameplay of the Wii, but fails to deliver the graphics it should. Overall, I'm glad I bought Red Steel. As more first person shooters come out, I think Red Steel will still stand out for the sword fighting, but nothing else.
