This game is AWESOME for the wii. Finally a game to say "Wii is awesome because of this...." I just hope other people like it too. Great gameplay, yet there is a drop in the story. The story is a bit weird but thats not i was going for. Its great because when you swing your character actually swings that way you do. And when they say finishers they mean FINISHERS. They were awesome. It may not have been gory but man it made up for that in gameplay. Just make sure you have enough juice in the wii to actually play. A few times i ran out of juice in the remote and had problems swinging so full batteries as much as possible. Great game I will buy definitely when i get the money!!

The Best Game For The Motion Plus

This game takes Red Steel 1, and hugely upgrades it with the Motion Plus, and the ability to use the sword at any time, unlike RS1, where you could only use it in certain areas. This is by far the best game for Motion Plus, EXCEPT Zelda Skyward Sword..

Ubisoft delivers... in a big way

I just got this game today, and i must say it was totally worth my 60 dollars. I spent the extra 10 for the wii motion plus bundle, it being required to play Red Steel 2. This game delivers in everything the first one set out to do but failed. In fact, the namesake is the only thing this game kept from the original Red Steel that we all know and hate. They could have named it Monkey Assassain with sword and gun(totally random) and i would still love it. This game is totally different from the first.

A lot of people are complaining about the "backtracking" aspect and I actually really like it. It gives you a chance to really explore and learn about the town. The swordplay in this game is Top-Notch and totally amazing. While guns are included, it is clear that this game was mostly focused around swordplay.

I gave it a 9 instead of a 10 because if we called this one perfect, the next one wouldnt have a name to describe it, if there is to be a next one.
If you have a Wii and Wii Motion Plus, get this game. If you dont have wii motion plus, get this game in the bundle with wii motion plus.
Either way...
