Red Steel 2

Ubisoft simply refers to the main character as The Swordsman; the lack of a name will become clear later in the game.[4] This silent protagonist is a member of the "Kusagari-clan", who, prior to this game's events, were almost all killed by a clan called "The Jackals". Now, as one of the last survivors of the Kusagari-clan, The Swordsman sets off on a mission to avenge his fallen clan, and begins hunting down the leader of the Jackals, named Payne. Later on he finds a special sword deep in Caldera's mines and thus a deadly rival comes to town...

Previews

GameZone's Dakota Grabowski previewed the game, which produced positive impressions. "Running at 60 FPS (frames per second), the animations were more impressive than they were in the past; especially the powerful combos that were unlocked during our session. One of the more unique kills I was able to accomplish was bouncing bullets off walls to take down enemies who were using cover – it often provided a good laugh since the enemies never saw it coming." He also added "It’s fair to say that Red Steel 2 is a whole different beast than the original. The futuristic Wild West setting with samurais and ninjas is definitely peculiar. Upon completing my session, I walked away with sore shoulders from all the powerful swings and a smile on my face."[11] NG-Gamer's Martijn Müller opinion on the game was simple: "Adrenaline rush! ...in the end it comes down to man's primal forces.

ut!"[12], while colleague Simeon van Rhee commented on how easy the game was to pick up and play, and "how it really feels like you're holding a katana".[4] Wonderwallweb.com got a chance to play the game with a positive outcome, "this is no doubt one of the best Wii games I have played in a long time and it's definitely one to look out for if you are a fan of the console."[13]

I actually was very surprised at the quality of this game.

The character design and setting are epic-level, and the control/funfactor are very good. The only negative I've seen is that the story isn't all that deep, and the bosses appear to be basically the same.

I ignore the big reviwers. I have my reasons, but let's say tanks dont bleed, and things have colours.

I saw a quick look of this on giant bomb. Seemed kind of cramped from what I saw. Also plenty of long loads. Not played though.
