Wii Motion Plus has tightened up the precision of the humble Wiimote to fairly epic levels... but there are still very few third party titles that show it off to its full potential. Luckily, Red Steel 2 is perfect for the new gizmo, allowing us to leverage the new accuracy and precision into chopping up loads of bad guys.
Currently, ShopTo are stocking Red Steel 2 for £17.85- which includes a Wii MotionPlus peripheral! This is an absolutely cracking price... since it's also one of the cheapest ways of getting the game by itself! This deal will save you at least a tenner and essentially nets you a Motion Plus for free since it retails individually for the same price! Note that most price comparison sites lump in standalone games right along with the Motion Plus bundle, so make sure to check the product descriptions.
Six-guns, shootouts and Feudal Japan may appear to be unlikely bedfellows on paper, but Red Steel 2 makes it work. Playing as a cross between Clint Eastwood and Jet Li; you’ll slice, dice and gunsling your way through a host of quirky foes and environments. The emphasis is on hectic swordfights- and whilst you'll take a few hombres (hombre-san?) down with pistols and shotguns, you’ll spend most of your time grinning like a maniac and flailing the Wiimote like you’re on fire and covered in ants.
You'll run into a few control issues here and there (especially our old friend standing a bit too far away from the sensor bar), but the gesture-based system is extremely intuitive and works surprisingly well. Considering the excellent price of this deal, this could well be the perfect time to buy into Motion Plus.
Thanks to BobSmith at Hot UK Deals. Excellent find!
