Description

Taking 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.
