So i just beat Red Steel 2 and i figured that some of you might want to know a thing or two about this game so ask ahead.
It took me 11 hours to beat on "ninja" the hardest difficulty setting of the game. The "sword intensity" I turned it down a bit because in the long run it was hurting my arm, that setting translates to how hard you have to swing the wii remote in order for the game to differentiate if you are doing a weak or a strong strike.
Graphics are pretty good and the style is well defined. The environments get mixed up throughout the game and there are some sections that have quite an impressive atmosphere, mainly the "abandoned" town that you land in after the first section of the game that takes place in the big city that is shown in most of the trailers.
Now there are two things that really bring this game down in my opinion. The first one is how easy the game is even on "ninja mode". Enemies just don't block attacks and pounding the living hell out of them is a pretty sound tactic throughout 90 percent of the game. There are some more interesting enemies to fight in the very last section of the game but even they are not all that hard to take down really.
That being said the thing that really kicks the initial potential of the game in the groin is the story. It is bland, quite uninspired, the characters are quite forgettable, well not the Asian girl who speaks with an Texan accent simply because she is an asian girl who speaks with an Texan accent which I still can not wrap my mind around. After beating the game I was scratching my head asking myself "wait was that the motivation of the villain... really?"
So if anyone wants to know something more in depth ask ahead.
