IGN UK: Red Steel 2 Review

There's no doubt that designing Red Steel 2 around Wii MotionPlus controls was an inspired decision, and Ubisoft deserves enormous credit for demonstrating just how much potential resides in Nintendo's woefully underused tech. As a template for how to combine shooting and swordplay within one intuitive, fluid control system, Red Steel 2 is an incredible achievement. But the bottom line is that the game takes a little too long to get going, and when it does it's all over way too soon.

"But the bottom line is that the game takes a little too long to get going, and when it does it's all over way too soon."

The game is supposedly 10 hours long. I've played about an hour of it and it already felt like it was going for about 30 minutes.

For me once the Payne fight happened things really picked up. I'm taking my time with this one though as I've other things to take care of, and also got A Link to the Past on VC.

Re the graphics really a 9.5? Haven't seen too much of it to call them out....
