    HE´S RIGHT! I also wont play God of War 3 because it has no multiplayer.

    By the way, i wrote an extensive review of Red Steel 2. Is there a place where i could post it?

    There´s a rumor about this leaked version being not-retail yet. I even listed a few glitches, but i dont think it is true.

    [Wii] Red Steel 2 [Final Stage & Final Boss] -ENDING-

    Comment:

    Red Steel 2 has disappointed me a lot, the plot makes me laugh, so the dubbing ..
    Lasts very little, even if there are side quests the game is not durable .. indeed

    Reviews go in the GBAtemp Magazine Reviews section. That's where I put all mine.

    Well, it is almost two weeks before retail, who knows? I haven't had any glitches yet though.

    As for the multiplayer, yes, it's disappointing, but they've made it clear that they're focusing on a single player experience, much like Metroid Prime games (outside of 2, which had a bit of multiplayer). Hopefully they'll do multiplayer if they decide on a Red Steel 3. I wouldn't say a lack of multiplayer makes it awful, seeing as the sword fighting is very intricate and would be hard to incorporate in a multiplayer setting (it's a lot fancier than WSR), but it does kinda blow. It's still a fun game though.

    To my opinion, MotionPlus is ridiculous and nintendo always find a way to add it to make more money and an excuse.

    EDIT: Why did some people use modchip and softmod at the same time ? Its not neccessarily, is it ? I have softmod and its free and no problem.

    Red Steel 2 certainly is not intuitive; it takes even more time getting used to than REGINLEIV. But once you do, it really quite awesome owning dudes in fights.

    I am playing on Ninja difficulty, which practically means pulling off flawless fights every time. Which is great.

    The problem is (and the problem many people have reported) is that in the beginning, it SEEMS like you can do more than you actually do. You can do sword slashes but it takes a while until you notice that doing so without holding Z is fairly frustrating. You play around with "block" mode and notice that they limited the way MotionPlus is read significantly, but only later in the game do you learn that you only need horizontal and vertical blocks.
    The little quirks and knacks of the controls only open themselves up to you very slowly - even for me, one of those that are familiar with the technology and know what M+ can and can't do, and don't expect "1:1" or something similar to the WSR rotational sword fight.

    It's sad, I know that many people are going to be disappointed, even though the swordfights are just plain badass 1-2 hours into the game - and only get better.

    Just finally got around to playing this. Works great on my NTSC 4.3 w/ USB Loader GX (latest build). Ubisoft really out did them selves. Perfect graphical style for the Wii... looks just great. Gameplay is really solid, not perfect 1:1 sword fights but 100x improved over Red Steel 1. This is one of the few A+ titles on the Wii and another reason why I'm happy I kept mine.

    Out on the 23rd. How we got an almost 2 week early dump is beyond me. And why does it matter, the game plays just the same. Force the region to NTSC and you're ready to go baby.

    But sometimes I prefer PAL since they tend to have french included more often
