I thought this was probably the best place to start this thread. I, like so many others, have managed to 'obtain by other means' the leaked ISO of Red Steel 2...and it is without any doubt in my mind the best game available (or soon to be available lol) for the Wii, including first party titles. This game needs to be bought. The swing detection, the finishing moves, the special powers and the weapon upgrades work really well, particularly the finishing moves. The Bearded One said in an interview a while back that he wanted to create a sword fighting game that made the gamer feel like a badass, and he's certainly succeeded. Graphically it's right up there with Super Mario Galaxy in that it doesn't look like a Wii game. The sound and the music are also top-notch. This game deserves to be bought - pre-order it right now!!!
