Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

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.

Guns or swords - the choice of weapon is up to you
Only the Wii MotionPlus allows for such precision
You've never played a first person shooter like this before
Take on multiple enemies at once as you strive for revenge

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 your 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.
About the Developer: Ubisoft Paris
Despite being France's biggest games publisher relatively few games are made at Ubisoft's Paris studio nowadays. The major exceptions have been the Wii exclusive Red Steel and its follow-up, the two Rayman Raving Rabbids sequels and some of the Imagine range of Nintendo DS games.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Wii Fit Warm Up For Oldies! 25 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'd waited for this game after reading previews and reviews in Official Nintendo Magazine and I must say that I have not been disappointed.

I love the Wii Motion Plus and it's truly at its best when used as a sword. It doubles here as a sword, a gun and the character's viewpoint. Sometimes I've foud the "camera" flying all over the place but, as others have pointed out, it's relatively easy (certainly on the "Easy" mode) and I seem to take down the baddies with due efficiency, but it's not so easy that you feel you've been short changed.

For, ahem, "oldies" like me - well, I'm not that old: ZX81 and Commodore 64 generation - it has just the right balance of difficulty. It's almost a pick-up-and-play title; I only skim-read the instructions which are relatively scant anyway. All the greatest games, in my opinion, are those which you can start playing straight away without too much of a learning curve.

Like many Motion Plus titles, Red Steel 2 is a "stand up" game as you'll find yourself getting quite active. There is lots of swinging involved and some great sword moves to "buy" along the way. Talking of "buying": shoot or swipe everything you see in the street (hinted at by a small arrow appearing at the top as you get closer); these items contain money and ammunition for your gun. Money is gained by achieving missions anyway, but a little more always helps. It cost me about $6000 to "buy" a very cool sword stab move.

To put my review title into context, I played this for an hour or so directly prior to my usual daily Wii Fit session and actually found it quite a pleasant way to warm up! It's not so strenuous that you end up sweating buckets, but it'll loosen you up nicely.

The graphics and animation are superb.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Red Steel 2 is the best Wii game to use MotionPlus since the most excellent Wii Sports Resort (Game Only). I really enjoyed the first Red Steel game but felt the sword fighting could have been a bit better. This is where Red Steel 2 really comes into it's own because for me the sword fighting is pretty much spot on now. Red Steel 2 is set in a strange Mad Max meets the Wild West with swords type world and, you the Hero are very much like the man with no name from the Dollars trilogy which starred Clint Eastwood. The graphics have a great style to them and the music creates great atmosphere. The story is about a gang called the Jackals who have taken over a town called Caldera. A sadistic psychopath called Payne is the leader of the Jackals and it's your job with some help from your friends to bring law and order back to the town. The voice acting is good and I enjoyed getting to know all the different characters within the game. I found the game starts off a bit slow but, it keeps on improving as you work your way through the levels. Red Steel 2 as a solo 1st person shoot em' up is one of the best on the Wii and it will keep your trigger finger happy until the release of Goldeneye 007 (Wii).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game, great controls 7 Sep 2010
By Dadi
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have had this game for a few weeks and I must say it is a blast. The controls are really great and when I play this game I can't sit down. I have to bee standing to be able to swing my hands with enough power. If you have a Wii and would like a really, really good game then you should buy this game. It is a must for all Wii owners who are serious about games.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE EASTERN SIDE OF THE WEST 2 April 2011
By NeuroSplicer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the one of the most original FirstPerson shooter console games I ever experienced. RED STEEL 2 is a SteamPunk-Western/Anime and it has been perfectly designed to take advantage of the technological capabilities of the Wii!

SCARE YOUR ENEMIES BY THE WAY YOU CARRY YOURSELF
The controls are a breeze to pick up. You move with the nunchuck and you turn by pointing the Wii-Remote. You fire your gun with the B-button whereas you unsheathe your katana with the A-button and swing the Wii-Remote like a real sword. And the last point is what makes this game so much fun. You slash, stub or hack by simply doing the same movements with your right arm holding the Wii-Remote.
This is not a workout game but after about an hour of having fun slashing and stubbing you will feel your upper arms to burn.
As you progress, there are improvements for your weapons and powers to purchase as well as special moves to learn by the cheeky weaponsmith/sensei.

THE WEST NEVER LOOKED THIS COOL
High-end graphics have never been the Wii's strong suit. That is why the cel-shaded (comic book) graphical style (similar to XIII and Borderlands) fits the gameplay well. Backgrounds, enemies and fighting moves (especially finishing moves) look really cool and crisp and greatly help the player immerse in the Anime atmosphere.

HAVING SWORD WILL SAVE THE TOWN
The game requires the MotionPlus! extension of the Wii-Remote (and it is not included). There is a different edition of the game that includes this extension but this is not the one mind you.

They are coming again - keep those katanas ready!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awsome Game 16 Jan 2011
By Slim
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Spontaneous Buy.

Don't like games that are to hard so this was great for me with easy med and hard difficulty settings.
controls are simple and the wii motion plus is really responsive and accurate.
you can set swing mode to "relaxed" so you don't end up with arm ache.
tutorials are brief and informative.
autosave works.]
game engine only let me down once when it got confused and i got stuck between 2 doors, other than that its been flawless.
loading time reasonable.
