PALGN writes: "While we quite liked it, Red Steel got a bad wrap. Seemingly people's expectations of rainbows and kittens weren't met when this experimental title was first released on the Wii, and playing one level or five minutes of a game is enough to make an informed judgement. But that's neither here nor there. Despite the critical panning, Red Steel actually sold quite well. Much to the chargrin of the 'core' Wii gamers, no other developers had been willing to cash-in on the popularity with similarly styled games, as it seemed that most resorted to mini-game compilations instead."
