Red Steel is a fun game but not for everyone.
Review written by
Red Steel for the Nintendo Wii is an excellent game if you enjoy first person shooters. The controls are nothing like any other gaming system out there. Not only does the player have to shoot wave after wave of yakuza by aiming with the wiimote, but he also has to master sword techniques.
By making slashing motions through the air with your wiimote when equipped with the sword, you face off against katana wielding foes. There are several sword techniques to learn.
Graphically it's very good looking. I'm still hooked on my gamecube so I may be a little biased. The AI is fairly decent, sneaking up on the player and taking cover when shot at, but this is pretty standard in most games nowadays.
The sound is very good in the game. Great music mixed with realistic sound effects like gunshots and swords clanging when they strike together and you get sounds coming from the speaker in the wiimote .
While this game is quite enjoyable, it's the Wii controls that really sell it. Without them, Red Steel would be just another dull first person shooter and I doubt that it would do well if it were somehow remade for another system with just a simple push the button to shoot controls.
Definitely worth checking out if you have a Wii but perhaps try to rent it first if you're not into first person shooters.
