    Hi. Many years ago I played plug and play tv game "Lord of the Rings: Warrior of Middle Earth" and it was amazing.

    And when I bought Wii I was thinking about games like this just with more accurate controls and better graphics, but I can't find anything like that at all! :(
    So, can you recommend me fps like sword fighting games? If there is any.

    Red Steel 2, Swords, Wii Sports Resort, and Skyward Sword are about the only things you'll get that are true sword fighting games, although the only good ones out of that are Red Steel 2 and Skyward Sword. And Red Steel 2 is better anyway.

    Red Steel 2 is also the only "FPS-like sword fighting game" for the console. The original Red Steel is awful though so don't try it.

    Red Steel 2 looks good, but thats not what I was hoping for. I done some more googling and found this:

    It looks amazing(although it got mixed reviews). Aren't there anything more like Dragon Quest Swords? Wii looks like perfect console for games like this, and they're surprisingly fun and addictive.

    I will try this, as far as I read about it, people hate it or love it. I hope I'll be the one who loves it :)

    Skyward Sword is great too. Those two games are two of my favorites.

    Red Steel and Red Steel 2, the second one is loads of improvment of the swordplay, and the art style is awesome.

    (funny im coming across this thread right now, when i just started playing Red Steel 2 again. Paused on the TV right now)

    No More Heroes has some ace sword / lightsaber motion controls for its finishing moves.. The main swordfighting uses buttons though. Ace game. I'd probably agree with Skyward Sword (amazing) and Wii Sports Resort Swordfighting minigame - it has 3 different modes, all of whch are ace. Duel, slice contest, and a horde-mode-esque rampage thing where you are on rails and slice up and unrelenting army of opponents, great fun!
