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

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?

The banter is hilarious in this video

man. this game actually looks really sweet.
Posted by patrick5152003

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.

@patrick5152003: Er what? Other than a few seconds of CG footage in the commercial, they're the same (as shown when the samurai dude and the pirate dude are playing). And how could the commercial be the first time you see the game anyway, plenty of media showing how it looks has been around for ages.

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.

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.

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

Posted by Shiro_Shishi

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

Posted by Sharpless

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

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

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 DeadDorf

Still no blood? How is the steel red?

Posted by Meowayne

Ugh, I HATE it when they do that.
YES, you can take the sword out at any time and just look at it and move it around. And go into defense mode. 
Why do they never check out the controls and then talk nonsense about them, especially in Wii quicklooks? ffs.

Jeff hates the Wii.

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 SBYM

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

Posted by UselessNinjaMan

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

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

It's embarrassed.
Posted by gormers

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

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

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.

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.

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
Posted by Spike94

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

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

Posted by Ryonslaught

This kicks ass I love it!

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.

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