Red Steel (Wii) > Opinions (59)

According to Ubisoft, Red Steel have sold 1,000,000 by end of 2010, and Red Steel 2 700,000... ._."
This is severely undertracked... probabily now Red steel have sold 1,500,000 and Red Steel 2 1,000,000.

This is severely undertracked. (And a bit underrated) I refuse to believe that this sold more in Japan than Europe. Also, Europe's sales are probably twenty times higher than 20k.

I would've given it about a 7.5 since the game itself is alright and can be fun to play multiplayer, but knocked off .5 because twice during the main game, I encountered bugs that forced me to restart from a previous save.

Took me a few min to get used to the controls but fun overall FPS recommendations
1: better visuals still cell shaded
2: motion plus for sword fighting
3: co-op game play
4: online
5: Wii-speak for voice chat
6: tighter controls
Do all this and its a guarantee hit

just got the game and I have played 45min and I can say that if it wasn't for the bad gun control the game is fun to play but nothing special. Already looking forward to RS2 next year

will be a little more in depth review of red steel on my web page in a few days when I have beaten the game

Yup ... this game isn't bad at all ....IF ... and I do mean IF ...you can get use to the controls.

Part 2 should not have a problem with that at all and the sword combat should be greatly improved.

I want to know how many of the people calling this such a terrible game actually played it.

Because honestly, it's not that bad at all. And it's definitely fun multiplayer. Shame there are so few levels and they're so small.

Severely undertracked. The game hasn't been tracked in Europe since end 2007. It probably already sold over 600k in Europe alone.

The controls for MP3 DO blow Red Steel's away.

Were you using Advanced in MP3?

I love how a lot of people say that the controls on this are awful and that the controls for MP3 are the greatest controls on a FPS ever. Don't get me wrong , they are better, but basically they are the same as this game but cleaned up a bit. This game was unfortunately rushed a bit to make the release date. If it had a bit more development time people would be calling it a masterpiece. I thought the controls would have been perfect if tightened up a bit like MP3 . They didn't "suck". If Ubisoft comes out with sequel, puts a little more time into it, and calls it something other then Red Steel people would love it. This game was very ambitious and deserves more credit then it deservses. Its definitely worth the price tag now.

The game was glitchy, the enemy AI was moronic and still dead-eye aims, and you have to adjust your TV brightness cause they make it to dark to see anything. The sword play isn't deep and it doesn't always read your gun maiming right.
Despite all this I really liked it. And look forward to a sequel that fixes the screw ups. I recomend this bargain bin game

This is a game that would've benefited greatly from some more development time; unfortunately, Ubisoft needed to release it at launch, so it was lacking in polish.

I found the controls quite good -- I think the implementation was spot on. Unfortunately, the game suffers from a low framerate, which makes it difficult to control. I think the reason people have trouble with the controls in this game isn't because of the control scheme, but because the low framerate makes the game slow to respond to your input. This combined with underwhelming graphics even for a Gamecube title makes the presentation rather poor.
