Long and fun with very few drawbacks.
on October 15, 2011
Redsteel is a fun, lengthy FPS that tried something new(swordplay).The Shooting in the game feels different than Call of Duty or Goldeneye, but once you get used to it, you`ll like it just as much, if not more. The Swordplay, however, sounds good on paper, but because of the limited accuracy of the Wii Remote, the sword rarely swings in the same direction you did with the Remote, making attempting combos nearly infurriating.Luckily, the swordplay only happens at certain events, so don`t worry about this affecting the game a lot. For this, you`d be much better off going with the Wii Motion-Plus required Red Steel 2. In the game, you`re about to meet you`re fionces father, when he is killed by a gang, and your fionce is kidnapped, sending you on a generic save-the-girl story. The voice acting is pretty good, and the graphics are better than a lot of Wii games. There`s not a lot of weapons in the game, but what`s there is look and sound realistic.
Despite the blood on the cover and the title of the game, there is very little blood in the game, with the only exceptions when you shoot hanging fish in the restaurant level, and a barely noticible amount in a comic book-style cutscene. Overall, this is a great game with a generic story slapped onto it, but definetly worth the ten dollars I paid for it.
