Red Steel 2 seems to have nothing in common with the first game which is fine. After all RS2 has great atmosphere, brilliant sound effects, a generic stroy-line and some exciting moments but the game has one really big massive flaw and that is it is far too short. I managed to complete this game in 8 hours, which compared to the first one which took me around 20 hours to complete is rather a big difference. Let me break the game down for you
Graphics: Manga style which is better than the first game since the wii can't really handle realistic graphics like other consoles
Sound: Goes well with the mood. Voice acting ain't bad but not outstanding.
Gameplay: WONDERFUL! It's a shame there's only five levels of it. Unlike red steel 1 you can pull out your sword any time you want.
Overall: The gameplay is one of the best on the wii. You find yourself pulling epic moves all the time but as I said not enough levels. Buy this if you want a game to last you a weekend to complete but not if you want a lasting game.
