I’m not going to comment on the storyline – whoever is curious about spoilers can find a lot over the internet. I’d rather talk about the visual experience though before getting to the controls and the “fun factor”. I must say that I can’t ignore the fact that we’re in 2007 (or late 2006 when the game got released) so when it comes to visual experience from consoles or computers I expect a lot. Especially from an FPS type game. The Wii does not come out strong on this point. It is very disappointing to see the simplicity of the visuals, even if I account for the fact that the Wii is not supposed to be a super high-end graphical engine. It is also worth to mention that I played this game both on a 32” regular TV so as on a 60” HDTV. The later one is a full disappointment. In my opinion the Wii should not really be used on large screen TVs since it’s maximum 480p capability severely limits the visual experience you can get out of it.
Back to the game. So how does the new Wii remote control deal with the job? At first it’s strange but you can get the feel of it. As one progresses and improves things gets better. My personal say however is, that without some re-thinking of the control method, the PC mouse is still unbeatable in precision and enjoyment.Read more ›
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.
first id like to say that the controls are hard to get used to but once u no how to use them, there awesome.
the storyline is ok a bit of the usual(girl gets kidnapped guy saves girl thing)but with a cool japanese culture twist.
as for the graphics there pretty much last-gen with a little twist here and there but while im shooting or swinging my sword for my life, i couldnt care less about graphics.
now for the gameplay its pretty cool with all the diff. places and destroyable stuff(water pipes breaking, crates exploding,walls falling apart make for pretty awesome gameplay.
The story was based on Japanese mobs, known as Yakuza. You play as Scott Monroe and you're engaged to some girl and just about to see her father for the very first time. The meeting is ruined by the mafia, you then have to save the father, rescue the girl and so on. As far as storyline goes this is acceptable and it works. The Japanese feel of the game is something that I thought was very cool. With Red Steel being one of the launch games you obviously couldn't expect to be perfect, and it certainly wasn't. The controls are fairly simple, you push doors with the nunchuk and shoot and aim with the Wiimote basically. The camera is flawed, sometimes if you move the Wiimote slightly too fast the camera will move where you didn't want it to which can get a little frustrating. You get used to the flawed camera, it doesn't ruin the game but it's not one of the best camera responses I've ever seen. In comparison to games that came after it, Red Steel has very poor controls.Read more ›

This game was a lot of fun! The control took a little getting used to, but once you do, you can master it pretty easily (except the sword fighting where some actions are difficult... Read morePublished on Jan. 11 2010 by J. Chao
This is a fun game overall. And I'm sure that when it first came out, it was more "cutting edge" than it is compared to games now. Read morePublished on June 29 2009 by EliteGundam
