How silly to announce a sequel already, any smart gamer will wait for the sequel surely....

Well Red Steel with a better turning system and an online mode would be a definite must buy.


Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clichť. They were the statement and the definition."

Natch it'll be online capable, set in Edinburgh, feature an innovative new mode, and also become available for PS3 and Xbox 360, with better graphics. Its what Ubi seems to enjoy doing.

I agree with the online mode thing, but better turning? I havent played it yet but is it a bit dodgy?

No there is no spoon

i think they wanna hype the game! Smilie

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

Haven't played it either but even the good reviews say that the turning ain't all that, oh apparently the sword fights could have been better.

Could also be the reason behind it.

Well they're definately replacing the right position (Game Designer).

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

Mr. Ashcroft said just what i was thinking....i'll pass with the first one then...

That's what I'm doing. I know the game is good but it's just them controls...

I really hope Ubisoft does do a sequel. I LOVE the first one. I finished that bad boy last night and I'm going through it again.

Even though it's not quite as polished in some areas as we had hoped, Red Steel kicks some serious ass! I can't believe the level of precision and accuracy that is available at your finger tips. Absolutely unprecendented. You truly do have a level of control that wasn't possible before. I'm absolutely loving it, lol. It still would have been nice if Ubi allowed us to adjust the size of the bounding box and turning speed/acceleration. Never the less, the game is awesome.

Online multiplayer is a no-brainer for the sequel. In fact, Ubi originally wanted to implement it, but Nintendo didn't have the online tools ready and the Wi-Fi service was still being finalized/tweaked.

I think Wii is going to REALLY start shining with the next generation of games coming out for it. Developers will be much more familiar with the system/remote/tools and they'll have had access to final dev kits from the get go. It still all depends on how much effort they put into utilizing Wii, though. Most games that are coming out this holiday season have had a development time of only about a year and final dev kits didn't get finalized and sent out until only about 3-4 months ago.

On a side note, Twilight Princess is mind blowing. Incredibly epic, amazing controls and a gorgeous presentation. Definately THE game to own this holiday. Smilie

Chance favors the prepared mind.
