Red Steel (Wii)

Game Profile

Red Steel is an exclusive Revolution launch title that takes full advantage of the console’s innovative controller and puts players directly into the action-packed first-person experience with the weapon in their hand – literally.

An engaging storyline unfolds as you learn that your fiancée has been kidnapped and her father – a Japanese mafia kingpin – murdered by a rival gang. The only way to save your loved one and defend your honor is to journey from Los Angeles to Japan and confront the Tokyo underworld.

By learning the ancient art of Japanese fighting with your katana and the focused precision of modern firearms, you will progress and adapt yourself to this foreign environment, where skills alone may not guarantee you victory.

Key Features

  • Exclusively for the Revolution

Red Steel is the only original first-person action game built from the ground up for the Revolution.

  • Player Takes Complete Control

Take full advantage of the Revolution controller, and control the action like never before. You’ll replicate sword-fighting movements and eliminate enemies quickly by directly targeting and shooting them.

  • Master the Deadly Steel

Execute deadly combo moves using multiple swords or choose from a variety of firearms for longer-range attacks.

  • Focus Is Key

Learn to harness your mental power to unleash powerful attacks in dire situations, and use the “focus system” to freeze time and effectively target several enemies at once.

  • Become a Modern Samurai

Learn the art of Japanese fighting, and then use these skills to take out your enemies or gain their respect and loyalty by sparing them.

  • Multiplayer Modes

Challenge friends with various split-screen multiplayer modes to see who the real master is.

Game Review

Allow me to pose you with a question. You are armed with a Katana blade and a shotgun. Your enemy is armed with just a sword. Would you have a sword fight with him or would you blow his brains out with your shotgun? Exactly.

I guess Ubisoft thought that sword fighting might be something a bit different – particularly in a first person shooter game – unfortunately while I commend Ubisoft’s innovation I just wish they could have put more effort into it.I’m going to deal...
