I won't lie, game looks stunning for a Wii game, holy crap. It's like the GoW3 of the Wii.

So how much is it including the wii motion plus? Just checked, $60. Hmm, I am sure it will be on sale shortly after, probably be able to nab both for like $40.

Right, I would have it day one if what you mentioned above were reality. Too bad it isn't.

It's $57 on amazon. Big difference, you can buy some sweets with the extra $3.

The great thing is that I got it for £30 bundled with free motionplus. Most new games retail for £40 in stores and about £33 online.

Wii Sports resort with motionplus was £45 in stores. So amazon is awesome.


GAF guy on Red Steel 2
The editor in chief for the site I write for just put up his review(in Dutch) rated it a 94/100. He praised the near perfect controls, great visuals and sound. He completed the game and all the optional challenges in 11 hours on the hardest setting and that was the biggest downside.

It's up.

IGN

Red Steel 2 is a lot longer than I expected it to be, offering a good 10-plus hours of solid first-person action. The team added the ability to return to completed areas in a Challenge Mode that rewards gold, silver, and bronze medals depending on how much money you earned. 

While the gameplay's impressively done, the overall presentation is freakin' top notch. Red Steel 2 is easily one of the best looking and sounding games on Wii to date. The visual style is incredibly sharp with a graphic novel influence, and its look is reinforced with a game engine that runs at a silky smooth 60 frames per second. The awesome background music matches the visuals extremely well – it's been a long time since I've fallen in love with a game's soundtrack, and Red Steel 2's atmospheric melodies are incredibly good.


Closing Comments
Red Steel 2 is absolutely an "A product." It's clear that the development team wanted to right the wrongs of the original game and produced an all new design with controls that actually work. There are still some issues, both in game balance as well as wishy-washy motion sensing control, but the awesome style and energetic gameplay are enough to make this one of the top titles on Wii.

8.6

Kotaku review

http://kotaku.com/5500030/red-steel-2-review-if-only-2006-was-this-good

"In the same month that Red Steel 2 reaches Wii owners, Sony has loudly proclaimed that its Wii-style Move controller is the device that will enable the best motion-controlled gaming experiences that appeal to fans of so-called hardcore games. But you don't need a Move to feel just how impressive and involved an action game can be when controlled by your motions. Red Steel 2, a game any PS3 owner ought to hope comes to the Move, shows that Sony's console wasn't essential to make this happen. Ubisoft is on a streak of sequels-as-atonement that began with Assassin's Creed II. It has now built not just one of the Wii's best games and not just one of the most radically improved sequels in many years but a motion-controlled game with previously unfelt depth of control and excitement of action. To understand how well motion-gaming can feel, Red Steel 2 is a must play. This is a 2006 Wii promise delivered."
