Red Steel 2 - Wii Reviews - The Armchair Empire

 

If you are still reeling from the promise that the original Red Steel was going to change your life with sword swinging gameplay and gun shooting and yet were left with an awful taste in your mouth, don't worry. Salvation is here. More than just a...

Improves greatly on the original ; Great graphics; Polished and fun!; The loading “door” looks like it's from Doom, about 15 years too late; Was Wii Motion Plus really necessary?; Sometimes it misreads your motions

Review: Red Steel 2 (Nintendo Wii)

 

Red Steel 2 is a game that finally delivers on all the promises Nintendo and Ubisoft made back when the Wii was first unveiled all those years ago. Slick graphics and sharp shooting wrap around the excellent sword fighting mechanics to make an...

Before the Wii launched in 2006, the original Red Steel was a beacon of hope for hardcore gamers amongst Nintendo's admittedly casual launch lineup. Then, it was released and the results were less than stunning. It was buggy, it was glitchy - it was...

There's also room for a one-hit kill cheat, as some of the game's enemies are annoyingly hard to kill.

After a short hiatus, we're back with our regular reviews here on DigitalBattle, and we'll start of with an anticipated sequel to Ubisoft's Red Steel, the first ever game to be announced for the Wii. While it was ultimately a disappointment, it gave...

Great controls ; Nice art style and visuals ; Wonderful soundtrack ; Lengthy campaign

Campaign levels could have been spread around better ; No multiplayer

Ubisoft returns to the fray with Red Steel 2, a sequel to the ill-fated 2006 action game. Does this one fare any better? Find out in our review.

Rather than follow up from the original Red Steel, Ubisoft decided to start over with a completely new story and world for Red Steel 2. In this installment, we're introduced to Caldera, a desert city that fuses the styles of the Old West, Chinatown,...

A great improvement on the original, but not without issues.

Red Steel 2 is a solid improvement on the first game. The controls are much better, and there’s a decent 12 hours worth of gameplay to get through. I still have some concerns with FPS and swordplay being put together and the fact that you can’t turn...

Ubisoft have jumped into gun and sword swinging action once again with Red Steel 2, the successor to Wii launch title Red Steel. Over the course of four years, Ubisoft have taken their franchise and given it a vigorous re-working, so much so that...

Ubisoft have created an amazing adventure. They have taken everything from the last Red Steel and completely revamped it for the sequel. From the fluidity of the controls, to the impressive and tough boss fights, it's easy to pick up and ridiculously...

The first Red Steel showed a lot of promise, but was let down by some shoddy controls. Does this Wii Motion Plus enhanced sequel deliver the goods?

Story ; Graphics ; Controls

Short ; No multiplayer ; Recycling of areas

"Red Steel 2" largely lives up to the promise of the first game after all those years in between. The controls are brilliant, and the graphics, sound and story are all top notch. However, the fact that the story itself is quite short, and most of that...

Throw yourself into the role of a Kusagari in this MotionPlus powered sequel.

Motion Plus works very well with this game; Visually very pleasing; Lots of moves to learn and practise

Missions can be a bit similar; Have to keep returning to the base to continue

Red Steel 2

 

It was thought that Wii launch title Red Steel would be one of the games to show off the console's motion technology at its best. As it eventually transpired, the combination of first person shooting and swordplay wasn't quite what everyone expected....

Much improved swordplay ; WMP usage is clear to see ; Intriguing new visual style ; Wipes the slate clean from the first game

Brief, post-fight control confusion ; Cursor still stutters occasionally ; Gets a little repetitive ; Getting shot from distance while defending close range

Ultimately, it's always nice to see a decent Wii exclusive hit stores that has come from someone other than the Big N, so Red Steel 2 is a welcome addition to the white case library, and finally gives non-Sports fans a good reason to own a Motion Plus...
