Red Steel - disappointing?
The more I read and watch about Red Steel, the more I feel like I'll be disappointed with the final product. When I first heard about it, it sounded like the coolest thing since sliced bread, but the most recent videos I've watched make it seem like it's just an FPS with a difficult control scheme. The sword fights aren't 1-1 movement translation, and in one video the guy wasn't even making full arm movements to make the slashes, he was just flicking his wrist. Gay! What's the point of using motion sensor s to simulate a sword fight if you don't even have to make the motion?
