Red Steel is an exclusive Wii 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 fiance 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.

Product Description
Fight against armed gangs in both the U.S. and Japan in this brand new first person actioner from the publishers of Rainbow Six and Splinter Cell. Master both guns and swords as you play through the bloodiest game yet on the Wii.

In a nutshell:
Fight against armed gangs in both the U.S. and Japan in this brand new first person actioner from the publishers of Rainbow Six and Splinter Cell. Master both guns and swords as you play through the bloodiest game yet on the Wii.

The lowdown:
One of the biggest third party games announced exclusively for the Wii, this is also the first proper first person shooter for the new console. You use the nunchuck controller to move around and the Wii remote to aim your weapons with real precision (the game even knows when youre holding a gun sideways, gangsta style). When using a sword the motion sensors in the nunchuck are used to block and you can slash away with the Wii remote. The graphics arent massively more impressive than a good GameCube game but the seedy Japanese back streets and giant explosions look great and the artificial intelligence for enemies is already quite a challenge.

Most exciting moment:
The game features an ability to called freeze tagging which allows you to slow down time and tag enemy body parts with the Wii remote. When you switch back to normal time you can take down each enemy you tagged instantly.

Since you ask:
As seen at E3 the sword controls do not respond exactly to the movements you make with the Wii remote, for example moving the remote up actually causes a downward thrust. Following complaints though Ubisoft have promised to change things for the final game.

The bottom line:
The Wii gets violent with the next gens only first person sword fighter.

Yet another superb find,:thumbsup: a great game by all accounts, at this price any game is great on the WII, but this is a must have. Thanks again.:-D
Unfortunately a pretty mediocre game - OK when the Wii was first released but hasn't aged well. Good price for a Wii game but don't expect to be impressed. (Red Steel 2 looks promising though).
I bought this when it first came out and My son and I both loved completing it...
the graphics may not stand-up well, but really enjoyed the gameplay and the control methods

For this price its a no-brainer ...
Looking forward to RS2 though:-D

That's a play trader though.

However, I won't be siding with this offer either. New and UNsealed stock is what you want to be careful of with this one. It basically means "We''ve opened the box, fiddled about with the manual and scratched your disk for you" You'd be better off buying it used in gamestation for £4.
For their prices, I've never had a problem with The Game Collection, and their despatch/delivery times are better than the likes of Play, GAME, etc.

This also isn't a "mediocre" game. Yes, things have moved on since then. But certainly if you were ever intrigued by it, this is a comfortable price to get it for.

Heat added.
For a bad game, that came out in 2006, this is a preety bad price. Yes even the whole 6 pounds of it.
Although it looked like a great idea at the time, I wasn't a fan when I played it....still not a terrible price if you're really interested in trying it.
Red Steel wasn't that bad I thought it was quite decent it was just some of the dialogue was quite bad but the gameplay isn't that bad I've played worse games on the Wii then Red Steel. Red Steel has an excellent soundtrack though.
