Red Steel (Wii)
Advantages: increasing difficulty, swordplay
Disadvantages: some stages feel repetitive
This game takes you in right at the start, after all, doesn't everyone love a good shoot 'em up lol. with it's unique contols on the wii you do feel more into it than any other shoot em up on any platform.
With the introduction of the sword this is another edge that red steel has over the usual sort of shoot em ups which breaks up the shooting sections nicely.
For me the stages are varied however it seems to hit a plateau after a while, the enemies do become more difficult and you do need to improve your skills in order to complete the stages but after a while they become stagnant. That is until the swordplay takes a bigger part as you move deeper into the game. This refreshes the game again as the enemies again increase but also the enemies you face with the sword force you to become much better enhancing the skills you can learn with the sword.
Eventually you have to become master at the sword as well as with the guns in order to complete the game and that is what makes the game differet from most and keeps you interested in the game. Tnhe stages do become slightly repetitive but not so much that you become bored which affects me with quite a few shoot em ups.
overall a good game with differences to keep the longevity in it and tries to evade the downfalls of a lot of this genre fall to
Summary: decent game and one of the best for the genre helped by the wii
