Red Steel is an average run-and-gunner that wouldn’t deserve a second look if it weren’t for its use of Wii’s unique controls. Pacing is horrible, with levels constantly being interrupted by overblown dialogue. How interesting can a story about an abducted girlfriend be? Double Dragon told that tale in about a second. Most will stay away, but those with some patience and a burning, unyielding desire to shoot something that's not from World War II might appreciate Red Steel’s mix of gun-and-sword action.
