Red Steel 2 is mediocre; it's better than it's terrible in-name-only prequel, but how much does it improve? Not much. The swordfighting works better thanks to the addition of MotionPlus. Everything else sucks. The story and its characters are cliched, the entire gameplay gets repetitive after two hours, which consists of training with the old master, taking a mission, fighting bad guys, rinse, repeat. And most importantly, there no multiplayer, which is a must for FPSs in this day and age. This game is only worth a rental and nothing more. I'm hoping after this, Ubisoft can do the smart thing and put the Red Steel name to rest.
