Product Description

  • Includes Wii MotionPlus Accessory

Forget everything you know of the original Red Steel and prepare for the most innovative first person shooter ever on the Wii. Although this long-awaited sequel features the same mix of gunplay and sword-fighting the art style and story are completely different.

Known only as The Swordsman, you enter the fictional city of Caldera looking for revenge in a unique mix of Wild West atmosphere, samurai action and modern day technology. The first shoot 'em-up to use the Wii MotionPlus accessory, the game gives you unprecedented control of your weapons and movement at all times.

The ultra accurate controls allow you to deflect bullets with you sword and perform all sorts of moves from simple slashes and thrusts to a 360 degree spinning counter attack. Unlike the first game you can switch between guns and sword whenever you want, giving you total control at all times and creating one of the Wii's most cutting edge new action games.

Key Features

  • All change: Clint Eastwood meets Kill Bill in an audacious reimagining of the original first person shooter as a post-apocalyptic Wild West revenge story.
  • Weapon of choice: Take down bad guys however you want, as you switch between using a samurai sword and a range of pistols, shotguns and other weapons.
  • Precision blade: As the first action game to use the Wii MotionPlus accessory enjoy a level of control and accuracy impossible on any other system.
  • Novel graphics: Impressive new cel-shaded graphics may look like a comic book but the violence and danger is as real as ever.
  • User settings: Fully customisable controls allow you to change every element, from the button assignments to the exact sensitivity of the Wii remote.

5.0 out of 5 stars Red Steel 2 Quick review 4 April 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Red Steel 2 is an engrossing fun and stylistic game, One of its best features happens to be its controls which feel fluid and almost second nature as you progress through the game buying and earning new moves an finishers. You really start to feel like a Ninja like swordsman as you block,counter and dodge with ease against your enemies. Although the game is an FPS youll be mostly using your Katana during confrontations but you can and will use your guns sometimes. There is a challenge mode where you try to get a good score and grade to achieve a medal .Im looking forward to playing it again very soon.

Lets hope there will be more great games that make good use of wii motion plus.

Game 9/10

No multiplayer by the way......Aslo Keep an eye out for the hidden Sheriff Stars (appear as big spinning coins} shoot them to earn extra cash to spend on upgrades and moves.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
As far as Wii titles go this is a superb addition to anyones stack of games. Its taken all the good parts from RS1 and made them better. The story is alright but the graphic and controls really work. Its easily the best FPS/ FRSlasher on system. It looks superb-easily the best graphic on the wii by far. I'll break it down...

Story 3/5 :
Nice setting but the story kindof takes a while to get going. Good few charatures to deal with (bosses anyway) but a majority of the people you're fighting will be the same looking fodder.

Graphics & Sounds : 5/5
SUPERB. On both accounts. Nothing better on the system - fantastic cell shading style graphic and atmospheric techno cowboy music.

Gameplay : 5/5
Great fun. Hack/Slash/Shoot its all here. Upgrade your weapons and special moves with earnt money. Enter unlock codes (pre-order ones) for special weapons. Its easy to find where you're going in the city and the ojectives are clear. Educates you well into the control as you go through the game and pick up more moves.

Control : 4/5
Its good, very good using the Wii motion plus (ESSENTIAL!) but sometimes the the aim direction goes abit off when you're fighting which can be frustrating. But great improvement on the original. You'll end up sword swinging 90% of the time over the guns it far more fun.

Overall : 4/5
Nearly nearly perfect its definately a high high 4/5. Don't judge this by RS 1 its a different title, its a different game almost entirely. Bound to appear in all the 'top titles' lists for the Wii and it deserves a spot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game - once you get past the start 17 April 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay so its not the best storyline, and probably still doesn't have the streamlined controls most wii gamers are looking for.

But it is a hell of a lot of fun, and the first time the wii comes into its own and really gives the traditional controller a punch in the face.
The wii plus should really have been built in for the wii controller, but thats another story. Here, we get some great response to your movements, while sometimes unresponsive or reading your movements wrong - it is nearly always successful in doing as you want, and can be used for some powerful combos.

The enemy's arn't very bright, but thats not the point. All we want to do is really fight them and kill them, and move on to the next - and of course have fun in doing so, and you certainly will.

Outside of gameplay, the graphical style is top-notch, and can be compared to some xbox and ps3 games in appearance (while the detail may not be there - it certainly looks very very good)

My one problem with the game is much of the start. The opening sequence while good, showed have been interactive, and would have been a great opening if it were.
Other than that, the first 2 hours is filled with boring and unoriginal tutorials which set you against a frightening...dummy.

The makers seem to have decided rather than an ongoing tutorial as the game goes on, they should have ones which stop everything for about 5 minutes a piece to teach you the basics, as well as a few new moves (which only become cool as you move on, at which point you choose to learn them).

But once you get past this, you charge into a wholy awesome and original game, and you'll have a hell of a time.

A must have for wii owners.

4.0 out of 5 stars What your Wii was made for 22 April 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is an enjoyable game and is exactly the sort of game that should be made for the Wii. Rather than being some awkward release adapted from another console, the qualities that the Wii can offer has been considered.
You look around by pointing the Wii remote at the screen and use the thumb stick to move. You fire your gun using the pointer on screen. When it comes to sword fights, you launch into a series of aggressive swings. This isn't an intricate little fencing match like you get on Wii Sport Resort, it's more about big swings and combo moves to take your enemies down.
I look forward to other games likes this for the Wii motion plus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get out of my way, Ninja! 2 April 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There are a lot complainments about empty Levels and repetitive gameplay - I tell you what: I liked it. The wind blows sand through the streets, and with the sometimes melodramatic music Red Steel 2 creates a very strange atmosphere. When it comes to the sword-swinging conflicts, Red Steel 2 shows you its strengths. Theres no need for blood and splatter - its still raw enough. When you finish your enemies with the Guns, the nameless Kusagari grabs the head of his opponent and shoots him right into his face. Brutal enough?
Everybody who is buying this game should probably start on the hardest gamemode - then its a good challenge. The other two modes are to easy.
And don't forget to use your guns. They are really helpful.
