Good job jumping on this one, and I must say, this game sounds very fun. Good swordplay is something I've been (im)patiently waiting for ever since the announcement of the Wii and it's good to see Ubisoft is jumping on it. Now LucasArts just needs to put the WMP to use for a proper lightsaber game.

I'm assuming it's not a problem that I haven't played the first Red Steel, right?

It's not a problem at all, Suskie. Thanks for the feedback on this review. I was surprised when the game showed up early enough to do a day-one review and even more surprised at how good it wound up being after the first game disappointed so many folks. Looks like another case of Ubisoft taking criticism to heart and developing a superior follow-up.

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

Ubi's developing a really good track record in that regard. They brought back the old Prince of Persia after everyone complained that Warrior Within was a misstep, they addressed pretty much every common criticism of Assassin's Creed in the sequel, and now it looks like they've refurbished all of the ideas that didn't quite work in Red Steel. (Presumably. Like I said, I haven't played it.) Hopefully they'll listen to what people are saying about this horrible new DRM scheme of theirs.

But yeah, I've got too many games to play at the moment, but I might try to look into Red Steel 2 this summer. You've definitely sold me on it.
