Besides Wii Sports this was one of the first games I remember seeing advertised for the Wii. And it made me want to buy one!
So when I eventually got my hands on a Wii the first game i picked was this, and, to be honest, I'm very pleased I did so. This game helps you get used to the basic motions of the Wiimote and the Nunchuck and makes you feel like you actually have a sword or a gun in your hand. The gun play is definately better than the sword play though.
The storyline, unfortunately, is a bit thin which means at some points you are just going through the motions in order to finish the game.
There also wasn't as much interaction in the game as I'd hoped for but overall Red Steel is a game that is well worth owning for your Wii and should be part of your collection!
