Red Steel Wii Review

 

The Wii Remote and its Nunchuck attachment were always going to do some great service to the FPS genre. The remote being used to move your sights around and the nunchuck coming into use for that all important movement certainly makes perfect sense....

Red Steel may not be the greatest FPS that the world has ever seen, but it's still a largely successful one. Yes, the controls may be intimidating for many mainstream gamers, although whoever said the Wii was only aimed exclusively at that group?...

Red Steel 2 (2010)

 

While most Wiisters will have bad memories of the original Red Steel and its awkward sword-and-gunplay, the seductive sequel is a completely different beast. And it’s all thanks to the Wii MotionPlus.

Red Steel 2

 

Despite its flaws, Red Steel 2 is one of the best action games on the Wii. It doesn't quite nail perfect 1:1 motion controlled sword fighting, but it points in the right direction.

Lovely cel-shaded graphics ; Brutal sword play ; Responsive controls

Sometimes lifeless

Despite its flaws, Red Steel 2 is one of the best action games on the Wii. It's a gamers' game, with old school mechanics some will find tiresome (mentally and physically), and control issues guaranteed to frustrate. But it all comes together to work...

Does shooting plus slashing equal stunning or stinking?

Red Steel

 

Whilst the Wii's launch titles were undoubtedly a rather uninspired bunch with the odd exception, you tend to get the feeling that several of those middling games may be escaping criticisms that would usually be thrown their way due to the fresh, new...

Red Steel review

 

Arguably one of the most hyped games so far on the Wii, Red Steel promises guns blazing, sword clashing, slicing and dicing action?

Red Steel

 

Wolf takes a look at one of the Wii's launch FPS' and concludes that it is a fun game even though it has some flaws that mar the experience

Red Steel needs to be given its dues for being the first FPS to utilise the Wii-mote in such a manner, but the controls are in their infancy so we expected some teething troubles. It's worth getting for the novelty value and there's a decent game to boot

Red Steel

 

Sadly, Red Steel is nothing more than a rushed launch title that will inevitably end up in bargain bins across the globe.

Loads of potential ...and that's about it

Bugs and glitches galore ; Weak controls ; Not exactly a visual stunner

Sadly, Red Steel is nothing more than a rushed launch title that will inevitably end up in bargain bins across the globe, and that's unfortunate. Why? Because Red Steel has a ton of potential. Sure, my old Biology teacher said the exact same thing to...

Red Steel (Wii) review

 

Well, the Wii is finally here, and with it it's first exclusive FPS, Ubisoft's Red Steel has received a lot of hype, and also been the subject of a lot of worries. How ill the controls handle, does the sword play feel tacked on? These are questions...

Red Steel

 

The first game revealed for Wii was an unexpected one - an exclusive FPS from Ubisoft, rather than a flagship Nintendo IP as anticipated, was the first peek of the system's catalogue. Advertised and promoted by Nintendo almost as much as their own...

Could have done with a bit more time in development, but we can understand that Ubisoft wanted it there right out of the gate alongside the new system. This appears to have paid off for them with how well it’s sold, which hopefully guarantees us a...
