Red Steel (Wii)

Red Steel (Wii)
Advantages: full use wii-mote/chuck, fast paced action, weapons and sushi!
Disadvantages: camera angles poor when near wall, graphics could b better
Well if u like japan, action films, and all things sushi lol then you will love the gamplay of redsteel.
The introduction starts off happily with u going on a date with a yazuka bosses girlfriend ... she wants u to meet her father! (the date must be going well) u start off by trying out the Wii-mote controls by moving it around like a gun, pressing trigger shoots, holding Abutton to zoom, shaking it reloads you fav weapon and can change between two weapons; the Wii-nunchuk you can move the cursor around to walk and jump & duck.
Suddenly as you get the feel of things the story line kicks action with yazuka style mobsters shoot the family and stealing your girlfriend .. of which u get knocked out.
You start off with standard pistol which is pretty fun to start with, simple enough point and shoot affair with plenty going on to get your heart pumping .. later u get weapon upgrade from enemies u kill from standard pumpaction shotguns which take a while to reload ... to mutiround shotguns, uzi's which u can pepper-spray the baddies to heavier types machine guns, even sniper rifles so u can pick em off one by one!!
There r bullet proof vests, id cards to find, lifts to operate, scenery to destroy to progess all the while shooting and dodging bullets
The energy bar is intresting because it depletes as normal if u take gunfire ... but if u hide or run u can slow replenish it by waiting it out .. sort of self heal ... must be the yazuka style blood in you lol
The fun part is when get to use your samurai sword .. u wave the wii-mote like u would hold a sword and the wii-nunchuk acts as a smaller secondary sword to block, u can also move about to avoid attacks ... later u get better swords like katanas plus u learn new sword moves in a dojo.
The gameplay gives u plenty to shoot at from henchmen to glass, cars, walls, even exploding oil barrels! You get ur bad hard bosses at each round which proves interesting because each baddie needs different tatics from doding and blocking and timing your sword attacks rather than random heavy slashes.
The story is fun enough and plays out like a action flick which picks up pace as you go along ... this is a pretty fun shoot-em up for all is easy to play and has multi player action if u have friends lol ... i recommend this game for ur collection, but it is long in the tooth with Redsteel 2 in the works so lend frm friend/rent copy and pay for the new version out soon.
Summary: yakuza, guns, uzi, samurai, mob bosses, girlfriend
