    All I can think of is "finish your other fucking games first before doing another project".

    Can't say I'm fussed about a sequel to a mediocre generic game, saying that Red Steel was much worse and the sequel turned out to be very good. I just hope that gameplay extends to being more than "scan some walls...get trapped in a room and not be allowed to leave until all creatures are dead" routine that made the original boring for me.

    Very true. That did get a bit annoying and made the game boring.

    I just hope they add some decent and bigger levels. Maybe add a new sniper rifle to the game other than that one orange/fireball mouth thingy gun.

    Even if the reviews are crap for this game, it will still be added to my pirated collection nonetheless. The first game I enjoyed A LOT, this sequel will probably interest me as well.

    Was VERY hyped for the first game, so let's see if this accomplishes the same for me.

    Here's some more info:
    I thought the first one was ok, so i'll probably give this a try too.

    Indeed, that and coop. I'd rather see The Grinder, but this will also be entertaining.

    The original Red Steel has spilt screen for 4 players and it was quite fun. Noticably flawed, but fun.

    I liked the first one. The details sound promising. I'm just thinking this wont be that great. Like Hadrian said they have too many projects. A game like this needs to focus of the studio. You can't be splitting the studio when you have a game like this.

    At least it has split screen. The big problem with the popular Wii FPS games is that they lack splitscreen.

    Also, Phase Rifle? What the fuck is that alien weapon in Perfect Dark that shoots through walls called again?

    The first one had a thoroughly mediocre story mode but the online was quite good. Had me hooked for quite a few weeks. Sure, it was pretty much a Halo clone to some extent, but that doesn't mean it was bad.

    I'll be looking forward to this. Although with all the shit HVS has been pulling lately, I don't think I'll be willing to support them and buy this game. I bought the first one, though.

    the only thing that made me stop playing this games was the bugs. after waiting five minutes to get into a match, half the time it wouldnt even work. still pretty solid stuff though.

    If this was the only game they were developing then I'll hope for it, really I would but they always have several on the go. When they announced the Gladiator game, they also shown The Grinder...which looked like they were doing while finishing The Conduit...and also they were doing the shit Astro Boy games...and the looks like shit Iron Man 2 games.

    They need to prioritise otherwise they'll never get anywhere. I understand doing licensed games to fund others but doing three other games as well as a licensed game isn't the way to do things.

    i feel they have really stressed on the multiplayer rather than the gameplay part... though its a good thing since most ppl are satisfied with the original gameplay

    Yay!

    I'll probably pirate this, though. I don't have enough money.
