GameZone's Steven Hopper reviews Red Steel 2 for the Wii. Red Steel was one of Wii's launch titles that didn't quite deliver what gamers were hoping for. Red Steel 2 aims to rectify its predecessors mistakes.
Wow, impressive score.
i havent gotten the chance to play the first one, but i agree makes me wanna try it now =)
thx for the review...sounds good :)
2010 seems to be the revitalization of the Nintendo Wii.
not sure about the price point, though, the game and a Wii MotionPlus just to play it.
The bundle is $60 ($10 cheaper than what you'd pay for buying M+ separately), same price as a 360 or PS3 game. Plus, get M+ now and you don't have to buy it when Zelda drops. ; )
This looks to be better than that first game....it was nauseating but overall OK (GZ)
I agree with Nakerman... 8.5 for a wii game? It must be good XD
Graphics look great, looking forward to playing it.
I played the first Red Steel and to be honest... it sucked. I was really curious when I heard about the sequel but it looks kinda good ^^ Maybe I´ll get it
That is an impressive score indeed. May need to check this out. "GZ"
thanks for the review. I am not that concerned about the wii motion plus, as I already have it. But I agree that the wii is definitely cashing in on all sort of additional crap that you have to buy (wii motion plus, wii fit board, etc.) Teujip -=GZ online follower :P=-
How does Nintendo force you to buy the Wii fit board? I never understand dumb statements like that. You dont have to have it for ANY game beyond Wii fit and Wii fit plus. Oh they forced you to pay 49.99 for Mario Kart and get the wheel for free? No the wheel was free and wasnt required. Now Motion plus is required but who is forcing you to buy it and isnt 19.99 a lot better than what you'll have to pay for move?
I played the first Red Steel for a few minutes, and wasn't really impressed. The inclusion of the MotionPlus should make it a lot better to control and, hopefully, more interesting. Maybe I'll convice a friend to buy it to try it myself. XD
Nice Ima pick this up next month when I got some more money along with monster hunter. "GZ"
I wasn't too impressed with the last one, but I'll probably give this one a go. I'm sure the kids will play it. "GZ"
I'll probably check this one out when I grab a Motion Plus (never saw the need for it, seeing as the first interesting game to me that requires it is this one). I never played the original but I heard this one is leagues better. GZ
i got the game day 1, and its really fun, its an 8.5 to 9 game for me, combat is amazing
The 8.5 to 9 range is exactly where I'd rank this game, too. The controls, art style and visuals are all ridiculously high quality. Mission variety and level design aren't quite up to the same standard, though. Put in a few more hours last night, and I'm really starting to get a feel for the combat. It's amazing. It's a make your own combo game (really the first of its kind). Vertical slash, stab, turn around, shoot another guy in the knee, spin attack? No problem. Left slash, right slash, parry, head shot? Slick. If you can think it up, you can do it.
I do hope the combat system is improved in this one, felt clunky in the first game. GZ
Here's hoping it really is better than the first one.
I need to get this out of the shrink wrap and give it a run through. Stupid work, delaying my gaming!
I made it through the first one and didn't hate it as much as I thought. However, I'm really looking forward to playing the reboot.
The graphics show just how little effort is put into most wii games. There are hardly any jaggies on my hdtv. The control is excellent and dialed in perfectly. The atmosphere, character design, music and art style show actual attention to detail. If you want to pretend sword fight and wii sports resort got old you need this game. I never played the first but this is what the original title promised. I liked NMH2 but this game blows it away. Looking at the obvious budget discrepancy between the titles I'm actually upset I spent 50 dollars on NMH2 and this game cost the same amount.
Graphically, this game stands up there with Galaxy and Corruption. Praise doesn't get that much higher on Wii, as those two games stand up to anything released this gen (IMO; strong art direction > raw power). I would've bought NMH2 regardless, just because I dig Suda's work. But RS2 positively walks all over it. NMH2's combat is as good as the original, but the weaker narrative dulls its edge.
