NPD says Red Steel 2 flopped, Ubisoft says maybe not

The NPD data for March is out, and it tells us that Red Steel 2 only sold 50K in its opening month. Not good, especially compared with other games that debuted in March (like God of War III, which sold over a million) and lon...

Review: Red Steel 2
by Jim Sterling

The original Red Steel was rubbish. Everybody knows it. Mediocre gunplay and first-person swordfighting that simply didn't work, the launch title Wii game was full of ambitious ideas that unceremoniously fell flat. With the introduction of MotionPlus, however, Ubisoft wants another crack of the whip and attempt to make motion-controlled blade-swinging work. 

With a totally new setting and even a complete artistic overhaul, Red Steel 2 hopes to make us forget that the original game ever existed. Just how successful has Ubisoft been, and does this sequel finally live up to the lofty goals of its predecessor? Find out as we review Red Steel 2.

Red Steel 2's sales expectations cut in half

No matter how much you yourself support mature games on the Wii, and tell your friends to get them because a lot of them are really good, it seems that they are having troubles selling up to expectations. Our own Johnathan Ho...
