Just another game about a time-traveling detective who deflects knives by spitting bubblegum at them as they fly through the air at full speed. Yep, just another game...

I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

Red Steel = Spend your money on candy

So, you have a Wii, and your walking out of your favorite store carrying your new system that you are so proud of. You go to pick up a game, but alas, Zelda is gone. Noticing the hungry eyes of fellow shoppers, you quickly grab Red Steel and go home, expecting some fun gameplay to make your new purchase worth the money. Well, I have some bad news for you. Its not coming. Ever.

Red Steel is the nightmare launch title vetern gamers fear receiving. This game is so easy, it puts Yoshi games to shame, and makes Happy Feet look like Final Fantasy 2. Unless you walk away to go get something to eat and maybe write a few emails, you are going to walk through this game. Gun fights are simple, and your enemies are easily some of the most annoying in all of gaming. Your will be shooting to stop them from talking instead of trying to save your girlfriend (or something, I honestly couldn't force myself to pay attention). Boss fights are a joke, and when you beat this game, if you can sit through all the stupid dialog, you will reward yourself by carefully placing this game back in the Blockbuster case and booting up Zelda.

Come on, there has to be something to make you want to buy this game? Nope. Save your money. If you can't find Zelda, buy some games on the wii store. If you don't like paying for games that you can get for free on rom sites, then just play some gamecube and enjoy the enhanced graphics. Run, don't walk away from Red Steel. Save your money. Hell, burn your money so at least you get SOME fun out of it. All systems have at least one stupid launch games. Its your job not to buy them to force developers to make good games. Hopefully our new Nintendo machine will not repeat this mistake of a game.
