The protagonist of the game - Scott - saw fish in the aquarium, along with his future wife. They were to meet with her father, a powerful man of Japan, turned out to be still and the head of the Yakuza clan. Envious of rest did not give that Dad led a business honestly as possible. And because it was necessary to happen - the kidnapping of daughter erepenistogo oyabuna coincided in space and time with the way Scott treated fish, and ... In short, universal fraternization and marriage will have to defer. Scott, however, is not very upset: either because the writers did not write him a single line for conversations, whether he saw what was going on a golden opportunity to prove future relatives of the seriousness of their intentions with respect to the beloved. Anyway, our hero on the run rehearsed art of using rolled, raised from the floor and the gun went all rescued.
For aiming and firing corresponds to the "remote". In the presence of a large TV and a sufficient skill can easily take aim on the fly, however, due to excessively tight responsiveness, it makes sense to resort to using semi-automatic fire. More accurate aiming by the approach controller to the screen (actually, just a smooth forward movement of the hand), but it will not save in a particularly hot skirmishes, when bullets are flying from all directions and pay attention to one goal, all just the same life-threatening.
Unfortunately, or fortunately, but the spacious grounds for a small local wars in Red Steel provides very little. Often have to deal with corridors littered with warehouses, corridors again, and only occasionally with luxury, such as rooms or halls. What is happening reminds first-class shooter with a light gun, where similar liberties to forgive and even to some extent justified. However, the need to not only shoot at targets, but also their own to navigate through the level, fundamentally changing the feel of the process. The dynamics and complexity increase as you progress through, and if the first few minutes will seem suddenly tense, then you should know: will continue to be hotter.
The game is divided into three acts, several missions with their sub-levels each. Anecdotal information is served either in monologue (Scott, during interviews retains a truly Asian cool, calm and silence entirely neproshibaemy type), or cinematics in comic style. Neither the first nor the second no warning is received - warmed up in a dozen skirmishes, the hero of collapse in comfortably furnished room, manages the corner of his eyes to see people in the corner, and ... his body was transferred to the management of the virtual director. In nine cases out of ten two-minute theatrical argument about how everything is bad, and how many divorced traitors everywhere, suddenly interrupted come out of nowhere a pack of criminals extras equal stature and shape of the face. While the camera accompanies important plot characters in a safe place, the bandits reload weapons, occupies a prime position and suggest sights on the vulnerable hero. As a result, no matter how settled the stars, Scott is always the one against all.
In graphic terms Red Steel and a number is not necessary with modern favorites of the genre (but by the standards of the passing generation is very, very pretty). That has not stopped the French camouflage fuzzy texture on the walls of vivid special effects so successful blur "a la Rainbow Six Vegas» and divert attention ubiquitous interactivity. All this, unfortunately, affected the duration of the download, swollen beyond measure. Happen quite astonishing incidents: one can often catch when he fought against a player warriors immured in the wall (apart from the star-shaped arms and legs). Patterns do not always have time to boot, and the same sex at different times may be "just a gray" or tiled. However, like disc read errors, such troubles are bound to be corrected in the future, with the release of firmware updates for the Wii. In the end, the gameplay is able to make situational hitch with fresh ideas - the good in him a hole and just can not find. And much control one has to try himself - for the first try very, very bad.
