TVGB: "Ubisoft has just sent over an official announcement, saying the sequel to the Wii launch title will be arriving this holiday season."
Fantastic. Just take a year-off now to make a good multiplayer system and watch the sales quadruple.
The first one was actually pretty good and the graphics weren't too bad (yup. Get past the first few levels until you get to Japan and the graphics looked good for a Wii launch title). I hope they tighten up the controls and improve the sword fighting sequences in this one. Like it or not, but the Wii HAS done some impressive things in the FPS genre, namely Medal of Honor Heroes 2, Metroid Prime 3, and the first Red Steel.
yeah....like the first one did it! yeah sure
Just remeber that Red Steel 1 was rushed to get to the release date, and, uhhh, Ubisoft sucks with Wii games (Prince of Persia on teh Wii, Far Cry Vengeance). Ubisoft had two/three years to make a good game (and get a new engine). Hope it works.
the single player to me felt like a complete tutorial for the 4 player split screen. me and my friends laughed for hours in red steel's multiplayer:) there were so many funny glitches
to "revolutionize" the genre Not on the Wii......... Too few poeple will buy it.
Holy crap, this guy doesn't know the difference between "defining a genre" and sales. =/
it will fail
Amazing how the same amount disagreed with me, and agreed with him. I guess more people don't know the difference, how sad. No wonder the gaming community is F, they hardly use their brains.
@ jay2 and chasegamez27 How come the first one sold 1 million?? I hope they use a new engine. Unreal Engine 2 doesn't look Unreal anymore (the Wii can do it in it's sleep).
jay2 - "to "revolutionize" the genre Not on the Wii......... Too few poeple will buy it. " That is what many said about casual games. This is also what many said about console that cost 499 two year plus into it's life. The fact is people will buy it if it is good. It does not matter what system it is on because HD gamers bought two systems just to play some games so that is not a barrier. It may sell slow it may sell fast who knows but if a broken game like red steel can sell then red steel 2 has a lot of hope. There are at least 1.5 million hardcore gamers on the Wii, just look at red steel, res evil 4, other games that slow rolled themselves to a million. The more and more of these games that come out the faster the sells will ramp up, all publisher should know this by now. I think 1.5 million is a nice number to shoot for and there is a lot of profit at that number on the Wii when you look at production cost.
NO IT WONT the first one was ok but not great it mite be better with motion pulse if it uses it but change the genre no
"why so negative?"
*Reads comments* Generalizing, Yep I'm on N4G.
Dude its like this in every thread. Bickering, lacking logical or deep thought comments most of the time. I'm on your side, this is defiantly N4G
i get depressed when i see this comments too, it's such a humongous lack of thought and such fanboysm... i am stoping to read the comments...
This is what is killing the hardcore, the very fans that claim they are hardcore. They believe it means "standing up" for their console by putting every thing else down at all times. I was right there when the neo geo failed LOL I still had fun with it. I was right there when the dreamcast fail and had lots of fun with it. I was right there when the NGC and N64 fail and still had fun with it. I was also there having fun with my dvd player/PS2 and my snes when they where on top. Hell I even bought 3 PS2 because they broke LOL, RROD my a$$! Actually my last PS2 just broke will I get a PS3 maybe not? Any way there seem to be more kids online this gen claiming to be grown ups. The adults online tend to work in the industry and this becomes there place to vent. A lot of people in the industry are looking for work right now which may mean more rants about why some thing else caused them to loose their job LOL. Yet the HD crowd is completely frustrated this gen. They will be leaving this gen also because most people don't stick around once there ideas of what gaming is fail. Hardcore gamers use to have lots of friend then we all grew up and people grew out of gaming due to various reasons. Life is pretty hard you know till you get your career started. The last thing people are thinking about now are HD games or gaming. Only kids are thinking about this stuff right now or people who actually get a pay check from PR work to game development. I'm thinking a lot of these guys here are part of the gaming blog sphere and just don't want to say any thing deep because they would rather put that on their own site. Have you noticed how many readers of N4g are actually posters of new from their own blogg? Kotaku they are coming for you but most of them fail to realize how is actualy coming to there site.
That's cute that they feel that way
What genre is that? The wave your hands like you're having a seizure genre?!?!
N4G should just get rid of the Wii section. The majority here just bashes and trolls the section. When there is an article about how well the Wii is doing non of them can be found. Now we have a game, something we yet have to see and people are bashing it. GRUUUAAATE, Expect more negative comments, its n4g afterall.
Uhhh, Wii games sell slow, and MadWorld got great reviews. troll.
wish i got madworld though. it reminds of no more heroes
Wasn't the original supposed to do that and failed? This one is still gonna be T rated and that's a huge fail in my book. I mean, I have swords and I when I slash my sword using Wiimote, I want to see it cut enemies.
and 2nd, RS2 could be a killer app if they can manage to use the Wii motion plus the right way. The online mode HAS to be stellar in order for RS2 to grab anyone's attention. @sidar Dont worry, people just love to hate the Wii because the HD console suck compared to the Wii. 2 Wii 1st part games outsell the majority of the 360/PS3 exclusives combined, so why even feed into their insecurity as a gamer and a person.
Actually i am enjoying my hd console just fine thank you, i don't think either the ps3 or the 360 suck, they both have many good games on them. But hey i could say countless things about the wii and it's games(i'll be civilied and not), doesn't make it a fact either though. I would worry about third party devs if i was a wii owner, thats who should be making money for most games sales not nintendo. i am too lazy to list the quality ps3/360 games, but there alot more of them than on the wii, so to me compared to the hd consoles the wii sucks gamewise. But if the best you can do is brag about wii games sales and not how good the games are thats sad. Quantity doesn't equal quality
"Quantity doesn't equal quality" now the media has spoken yet the public is saying some thing different. What HD games are still popular? who still splays gear of war 1? People still play mario kart and it still sells! None of the hits on the Wii are hyped at all yet people keep on buying them while AAA games on the HD systems barely make there money back. Quality is seen in how many people are actually still playing these games. HD games operate like DVD releases or movie releases because they mimic them which is bad for gaming. Many of those games will age horribly because of it. The HD console do not suck specs wise but game wise they have little replay value and challenge. Art wise I still feel like they are missing the point of having those specs. Control wise heck we should not kid our selves HD gaming has only improved graphics so far and maybe online play. Not much else hey but that is all that is needed for you guys.
I think all Devs deserve a second chance. I just hope RS2 can make the same leap forward.
I can't wait. Liked the first, and I don't care about online on Wii. Make it control great, look good, I'm sold.
Well, I'm not a fanboy, I just think the Wii is a joke and a toddler's version of a gaming system, and I have the right to my opinion.
hummmm so you're not a fanboy? N4G is a freak-show man...
