REVIEWS Stronghold Crusader 2 Review
From out of nowhere, Firefly Studios has released a title that is so, so close to being considered an RTS classic.

SPACECOM Review
This strategic space fighter won’t wow you with its looks, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t fun to be had. Especially if you bring friends along.

Publisher: Ubisoft
Developer: Ubisoft Paris
Ship Date: Holiday 2006
Category: First-Person Action
Rating: Rating Pending (T anticipated)

Red Steel is an exclusive Revolution launch title that takes full advantage of the console’s innovative controller and puts players directly into the action-packed first-person experience with the weapon in their hand – literally.

An engaging storyline unfolds as you learn that your fiancĂ©e has been kidnapped and her father – a Japanese mafia kingpin – murdered by a rival gang. The only way to save your loved one and defend your honor is to journey from Los Angeles to Japan and confront the Tokyo underworld.

By learning the ancient art of Japanese fighting with your katana and the focused precision of modern firearms, you will progress and adapt yourself to this foreign environment, where skills alone may not guarantee you victory.

Key Features

  • Exclusively for the Revolution
    Red Steel is the only original first-person action game built from the ground up for the Revolution.
  • Player Takes Complete Control
    Take full advantage of the Revolution controller, and control the action like never before. You’ll replicate sword-fighting movements and eliminate enemies quickly by directly targeting and shooting them.
  • Master the Deadly Steel
    Execute deadly combo moves using multiple swords or choose from a variety of firearms for longer-range attacks.
  • Focus Is Key
    Learn to harness your mental power to unleash powerful attacks in dire situations, and use the “focus system” to freeze time and effectively target several enemies at once.
  • Become a Modern Samurai
    Learn the art of Japanese fighting, and then use these skills to take out your enemies or gain their respect and loyalty by sparing them.
  • Multiplayer Modes
    Challenge friends with various split-screen multiplayer modes to see who the real master is.
