Red Steel is the best 1st person shooter game for the Wii (probably tied with metroid prime III). You can use a gun, or hand to hand combat (swords).
A great feature with the guns is that you can freeze time to get pinpoint accuracy. When time is frozen, you can choose to either disarm your opponent, kill them, or make them surrender. Making them surrender is fun because you pretty much have control over them. Then you kill them after =].
The swordplay is great, you can slice, chop and block. You can hold your sword up to the neck of your opponent to make him surrender.
The sounds and graphics of this game are great. If you shoot a glass window, the glass shatters and you can hear it.
There is only one real problem I noticed with this game, and that is when you are killing an enemy. Usually you would die with a shotgun blast to your chest from 5 feet away. But in Red Steel, it takes maybe 2 or 3 shots to kill.
