Damnit, a Petey Pablo-reference in a GB video.

Posted by MooseyMcMan

I bought this game the other day...I have to say, it's a pretty great game. Much better than the first one.

This kicks ass I love it!

Posted by Lethkhar

This actually looks...Really good. I'm surprised.

It's games like these that make me wish I had a Wii... Sweet stuff.
Posted by bybeach

wow! 
 
2 games I want now, if I only had a wii. Lets see where this goes. 
 
But I was impressed. They knew their limits, and made them suit their needs. If one likes good cartoon drawn in detail, this is just fine. From the illumination of the overhead lights to the hit registers, nice, nice work

At 15:03, the bald guy with tattoos...
 
Did Ryan say Final Fantasy TEN? Or Final Fantasy TET? Couldn't understand what he was saying and I was trying to think of a guy from FFX that look liked that and couldn't. Thought it might be a FFXIII reference but haven't played it ye.

I gotta say, I'm honestly pretty impressed. The aesthetic direction is strong and exciting, even if the character models leave something to be desired. I didn't notice anything overtly lacking from a first glance, though I'm sure there's plenty to nitpick. That's the beauty of strong art. I'm curious to know if it can keep up the pacing for a decent length of time and whether or not it opens up a little more for exploration.

yeah, the gb guys are sometimes a little lacking in their feature analysis.

The gameplay is really enjoyable, also the preorder bonus box thingy with thins is pretty neat.

The contrivances for Loading Doors are the best I've seen since Resident Evil. Which is to say "holy hell that's takin' forfuckingever."

Eddie Murphy RAW reference? +1 :D
 
I love GiantBomb.

Seems kinda cool. I like the look of it, but the movement is horrible.

How the fuck does shooting require Wii Motion Plus :? The game like any Wii game, uses IR for shooting : /  Another Wii game Quick Look presented in typical retarded Giant Bomb fashion - what's with the idiotic voices mocking the device simply for implementing it's use whenever possible - it is dumb. "
why are you here if you don't like giant bomb? You don't make any sense if your on a website you don't like and watch a 30 minute move on it.

Posted by Ravenlock

Picked this up on release day and have been very, very happy with it so far. I put some impressions up over at erraticgamer.com if anybody wants to read them, but the short version is, they basically made Red Steel 2 into what we all hoped Red Steel 1 would be when we first saw ads for that in 2006.  It plays the way you would think it should play. You swordfight, and you shoot guys, and it's pretty great.

Posted by KingGamer

Looks like a great game... that' will be ported to the PS3 eventually. Not sure about 360 since Natal doesn't have any buttons. :P

Posted by Sharpless

This is entirely worth it just for the bizarre instructional pop-ups with the woman alone.

Posted by Shiro_Shishi

this game looks AMAZING. the graphics,especially for the Wii, just surprise the hell out of me

Posted by FireSketch

I hope they bring this over to the PS3 for Move, it looks good and I don't wanna use my Wii D;

@Linkyshinks    if you hate it so much i have a revalation for you that will make all your pain go away...dont fuckin watch it... now i know that proabably blew your mind and you have no idea whats going on right now but just try and stay with me. when you are finished reading this if you ever do *shrug* just click the bit red X in the upright corner of your browser and then never ever enter the words giantbomb into your address bar ever again. POOF no more frat boy fun for you. crazy right?
Posted by BD_Mr_Bubbles

LOL like Jeff I was like wha? when the live action chick showed up. this loos pretty good.

Posted by warmonked

these graphics look great! (for a wii)

Posted by LordAndrew

Looks a lot better than the first game. Although it's still weird that you're totally stabbing dudes up and there's no blood.

This, and it's a WII GAME. Come on, dude, use your head. That, and NO GAME is photorealistic. People use CG in their advertising all the time, anyways. I saw am FF XIII trailer using CG, I'm not about to go flaming it.
However, the people doing the on-screen demonstration were PRETTY lifelike...
 
 
That said..I actually do remember the first Red Steel. I'll be surprised if ANYTHING carries over.

the graphics are nothing like in the commercial. they're freaking photo realistic in the commercial. i knew it was too good to be true. horrifically falsly advertising.

Posted by Lelcar

man. this game actually looks really sweet.

The banter is hilarious in this video

Posted by defunctdefunctdefunnnnnct

The new Wii Motion Plus controls for this game look fun, but I wish this was a true sequel to the first game instead of a completely different story. Don't those guys know they just need to wait for that door to open lol?   

Posted by I_smell

I didn't expect it, but this looks really good!

Posted by BigBenZo

Looks fun, but I don't see myself buying a motion plus just for it.

" Looks pretty good, I wonder though can you set the controls to a setting similiar to the "advanced" setting in Metroid Prime 3? where you turn a little wheneve you're not pointing forward. "
I think the developers said that there are MP3-style control settings for the bounding box.
 
Got a birthday coming up, maybe if I get a giftcard or something I'll pick this up.

the other door was better. LOL

" It's just terribly weak whatevr way you look at it, and there's no excuse for it, Anyone with a brain knows Motion Plus has fuck all impact on shooting, I mean, how on earth could it?.   Uninformative crap aside, and more to the point, what annoys me is the derisory tone you'll often find in 99% of Wii game Quick Look's on Giant Bomb - it's dumb idiotic frat boy shit.  @sixpin     I have a finely tuned one thanks. Frat boy humour has never worked for me, it's below my level of intelligence to find pleasure and revel in it, as most of the arse licking kids do on this site.  "
The tone of this quick look was actually quite positive. Maybe you should go outside for a walk and get some perspective. Or maybe you could just fuck off and never come back before posting anymore of you abusive stupidity. Either is fine.

So long as we understand Caldera was the name of a town in Morrowind, we're good.

Also the game looks really weird which for me is awsome!
Also i played the first one jeff.

@Linkyshinks: I can't tell if you actually are trying to sound like a jerk or if you are just trolling. I mean my first comment was a little snide, but you might have hurt your arm patting yourself on the back so hard. Anyway, sorry you hate Giant Bomb so much. Maybe try a site you like better?

Is it just me or does the POV angle seem extremely narrow? Everything looks like you're in zoom mode

@Linkyshinks:  they implied you only get good shooting with M+ or something? You're right, the game uses IR aiming like any pre-M+ Wii shooter. I guess I spoke too soon calling it a decent quick look then, having only watched the first minutes. Disregard that part of my last post.
