REVIEWS Titan Souls Review
Titan Souls isn't much like Dark Souls, but the Prepare to Die tagline still works.

A 4X strategy game in space. Sounds like a perfect match, right?

Bloodborne's apparently successful launch (see note below) has yielded two interesting points, for me.  One is that it's being hailed as the PS4's savior (see note below) and the other is that it seems to have serious technical problems.  Conversations erupting around...

What do these ratings mean?

There are only a few games out for the wii, and the last thing the wii needs is a crappy game in its limited opening lineup.

Red Steel is this game.  I'm glad is not a game that had to much hype. 

Graphically, the game is gory.  I like gore, and there's nothing like the though of slicing through a bad guys neck, spilling a fountan of red blood six feet into the air.

Enter the Kill Bill knockoff.

Red Steel promotes as being able to use both a sword and a gun in its wonderful maylay of combat conflict. Instead of being a skillful swordsman, you will find yourself sticking to the gun.

The sword just seems to be a step behind when all your foes have fully automatic weapons.

The only part of the game's sword combat that has some gimmer of hope is the boss battles.  When I though of being able to swing a controller, in a true sword battle of wits and skill.... Red steel replaced that with a pattern of the same movments for each boss battle, that requires only minium practice.

Pathetic.

I can see how people threw their controllers at their TV screens. I would be pissed off if I was ripped off like this.

This game promises much and falls painfully short.  Let this one die with some honor, and stay a rental.
