Red Steel 2 is a single player first-person shooter that allows the player to blend Samurai bushido ethics with the blade, with the over-the-top gun combat. A Wii exclusive, action is set in a fictional, yet immersive and edgy Western setting and utilizes optional Wii MotionPlus technology to add precision to players actions both with the sword and the gun. This precision of motion allows everything from turning the sword into both a cutting and blunt weapon, to blocking bullets with single strokes as players exact revenge on a rival clan.

Gameplay
Red Steel 2 is a single player first-person shooter developed exclusively for Wii and designed to utilize the Wii Remote's optional MotionPlus technology. Players will pick up the Wii Remote and swing it freely as the sword on-screen follows their precise movement – and even measures the strength of their swing. With this added ability of the Wii MotionPlus to sense the strength of a swing, you will literally be able to make an impact on your adversaries through power and precision and even engage multiple pistol-packing enemies at once, deflecting bullets with precise sword strokes. Along with less stylish actions, players rack up points through executing combos, finishing moves and other actions as members of the rival Jackal clan are eliminated. Additional abilities and weapons are earned or are available for purchase as victories pile up.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I wasn't really a fan of westerns as a kid. Well, that is until my brother made me watch A Few Dollars More. After that I loved them, the serious ones, and the sillier, campy funny ones. They're all so delicious. Unfortunately, I've never been a big fan of shooters both first and third as far as video game genres go, and nothing I've tried has really changed that, so sadly I haven't really been able to enjoy westerns in my games as all of them are shooters. I really like seeing the character I'm playing, the way they move, attack, run, and I don't really get that with first person games. That and shooting in general just doesn't particularly do it for me. Even in most movies I prefer hand to hand or sword combat, it just feels more dynamic and interesting to me, and it's no different for me in my video games. Well, that is until I saw some game play footage of Red Steel 2.

I hadn't heard of the original before this, as I didn't own a Wii at launch. But when I saw footage of a character that looks like Clint Eastwood meets Vash the Stampede meets Samurai Jack going through mobs using a combination of both swordplay and gun slinging, I was intrigued. Then I actually played it, and I was blown away. I just beat the game this morning, and I absolutely love it. I started on easy, go the hang of it then switched up to medium a little bit into the game. I plan to go back and beat it on Ninja.

As far as presentation goes, this is easily one of the most stylish games on the Wii, and one of if not the most graphically impressive. I'm biased about this however, as I love the Wild West, I love samurais, I love schizo tech, and I really love Cel Shading. The game has an absolutely killer sound track as well, with a love of really fast paced western themes.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It has been months since I've played a game that I felt motivated enough to write a review about. Red Steel 2 has finally managed to break my general disinterest in game reviewing. Red Steel 2 shouldn't even be associated with tragedy that was the original Red Steel. The original had its heart in the right place but the overall product was rushed for release, had buggy controls, and was considered un-fun by almost everyone I know. This new game isn't perfect nor do I think it is the best game ever created; nonetheless, this game is noteworthy and awesome in every way the original wasn't. Red Steel 2 also gives me an excuse to connect my Wii Motion Plus peripheral, which was sadly getting very little love. This game shows how to do motion control and pointer controls right, it shows a great sense of style and narrative, and has catapulted itself onto the short list of "games I think everyone should try."

CONTROLS: Above all else, this game is about the controls. The motion controls aren't perfect, but they are better than any motion control game out there with the possible exception of Tiger Woods 2010. When I say that this game sets a new standard for quality motion controls, I am not exaggerating. Responsiveness and accuracy are superior to anything I have played to date. Going forward I suspect that a lot of developers for the Wii, Playstation Move and XBox Natal will be using this game as their measuring stick. When the Wii first came out, I think this is the type of experience that people were imagining. I'm just disappointed that it took this long to get to this point. Combine the quality motion controls with responsive and accurate pointer controls for the gun play, and... I just am impressed. It works. There are some quirks, to be sure, but it still works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Red Steel 2 is a keeper June 4, 2010
Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have hesitated to write a review because so many others have covered all the points but I thought that my particular gaming perspective might be helpful to some. I guess I am what many would call a casual gamer. I am 57-years old and I own a Nintendo DS, a Nintendo Wii and a PlayStation 3. I have severe arthritis in my right hand and have difficulty using the game controllers. The only games I play on the PS3 are driving games for which I have a driving wheel. Prior to Red Steel 2 my favorite Wii game was Tiger Woods 10. Swinging the Wii remote as a golf club is something my arthritis doesn't complain about.

I have always been intrigued by first-person shooters but, having tried a couple with the dual-joystick controllers, I knew that between my arthritis and my novice gaming abilities I was no match for the gameplay. Having had success with the Wii remote I held out hope for Red Steel 2. I was not disappointed.

The first time I played Red Steel 2 I became nauseous. I then spent a little time tuning the control system, reducing the camera sensitivity so that the world wasn't spinning around me, and have since had absolutely no problems.

I will not repeat all the positive things that other reviewers have already said. Suffice it to say that they are correct. I will however address a couple common criticisms. I continually hear that the storyline is weak and the gameplay repetitive. I have already confessed to being a casual gamer and I have no doubt that this affects how I view the game. I have not played five or 10 different first-person shooters so I am not growing tired of the genre. In fact, one of the true joys of Red Steel 2 is that I consider it the only first-person shooter currently on the market that I, with my limited abilities, can play.
