Red Steel Controls Being Revamped?

Considering how much freedom the Wii controller gives players, it was a little disconcerting when Ubisoft revealed you wouldn't actually have free-form control during sword-play in Red Steel. Instead, players were to swing different pre-set motions with the controller, which the game would translate into a specific attack.

Then, on Tuesday, The Game Feed published a report saying the development team at Ubisoft Paris had announced a redesigning of the game, citing some difficulties the studio was having in "refining the sword-fighting." Nowhere in the report does The Game Feed state Ubisoft confirmed they were working on free-form controls; they simply speculated.

If they give us freedom with the sword play I'll be so happy no lie. I read an article from Nintendo UK that we will see a big diffrence in Reed Steel graphics in the up and coming screen shots soon to be released, can't wait..

They really give companys too much freedom in commercials right now. Every Wii shot I've seen on tv makes the controller appear much better than it actually is. These people (any game/system company that puts out a commercial)lie to us on a daily basis and it shouldn't be allowed!

yes you are right, every company only wants the money from the customers. but thats the way things flow, you cant change that.

This article just proves my queries on whether the Wiimote will be accepted as a mainstream controller. The PS3 controller is just plain odd...

I agree, I loved this game and Ryse. Definitely too much hate for these games.

That Batman MP sucked ass, but the campaign was awesome. It had the best writing and boss fights in the series.

I agree with the addition of Lost World. It wasn't perfect, but neither was it a bad game. Heck, when you have games like Sonic 06' and Rise of Lyric, calling it a bad game would be an INSULT.

Segata2775d ago

Lost World is a pretty good game and some of the levels esp early on are pretty much Genesis levels in 3D with branching paths and momentum based. The articles is one of 4 people I seen online ACTUALLY understand what Sonic is. It's not speed but momentum on Genesis.

Sadly, Star Wars: Battlefront is NOT Battlefield with a Star Wars skin. If it was, the game would be much better.

I had no idea Red Steel was hated so much. That was one of the better Wii launch games IMO. Had a lot of fun playing multiplayer.

I liked Red Steel too! Red Steel 2 as well. I do not care for Red Steel 2's graphics so much, but a fun game!

TXIDarkAvenger2775d ago

Wow I forgot there was a Red Steel 2! And judging from the ratings, it seems way better.

Just think, within every trash bag, box, and everything else shootable there is money. We could all be rich!!

But seriously...Red Steel 2 was fantastic
