DescriptionTaking place in both the USA and Japan, Red Steel is a crime themed shooter that has the player controlled Scott Monroe fighting off various members of the Yakuza clans in order to rescue his fianceé.
It features sword duels and gun fights using the Wiimote, to allow the player to swing the control as they would swing a sword. The positioning and movement actions of the Wiimote also let the player aim their weapons almost as they would a real gun.
Not only must the player fight off many clan leaders, but the option is often given to spare lives of the enemy. This is wise as it leads the player gaining more friends, rather than more opponents in the future if the Scott is seen to be dishonorable.
It is up to Scott to hopefully gain allies and uncover the reasons for his financeé's kidnapping.
- "Reddo Sutīru" -- Japanese title
- "レッドスティール," -- Japanese spelling

TriviaAs many games, this game has a limited number of stock phrases that the enemies shout at you in combat. Many but not all of the enemies are Japanese, and those enemies who do speak Japanese often scream "Kusu gaijin!" Both these words have the accent falling on the first syllable, and the phrase means "Filthy foreigner!" Similarly, in the original language-version of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Revolver Ocelot insults Naked Snake with the words "... Kusu Amerikajin inu!" or "Filthy American dog!"
