Forums - Nintendo Discussion - So... Red Steel 2 has no online play

Quality standards, yes, but feature standards borders on conformity, which is actually a detriment to the FPS genre, as it just makes the games look stale when they focus on the features over the game.



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

I'm with you on that!!! I luv the combat controls but I would rather fight someone online than to play the dumb story mode on this game. Just get a PSmove when it comes out... they will have more motion controlled games online then the wii does.

Normally I'd side w/ the people stating that not every game needs online...but this game needs online. (Since I've been waiting most of my life for a control scheme like this in an FPS that actually works--and it most certainly does work in RS2.)

In fact, barring some sort of porting mishap, I'd buy it again on PS3 if it shipped w/ MP.




With the exception of Mario Kart Wii (and maybe a few 3rd party titles I can't recall off the top of my head) there hasn't really been a well-implemented online mode for ANY Wii game. So what would be the point of getting a half-assed online mode anyway?



I'm loving the game and will admit that the controls are phenomenal and would be great for online co-op or competitive modes. However I don't feel that I wasted my money or that Red Steel 2 is a 'bad' game because it doesn't have MP.

To be honest, I think this really sets the bar for all First Person Shooter Slasher games going forward. Now they all have a game to look up to and use as a base for this new sub genre. Red Steel 3 will have a full featured online mode and will come out for the Wii and PS3 as well. So have no fear, this is just the beginning :)

Too many people think they are entitled to stuff nowadays.

Jason Vandenberghe last explained that they did explore the possibilities of a multiplayer mode, but that it would never fit in the time window, and that they preferred to deliver a great singleplayer experience over a mediocre multiplayer game

Yeah its better to not screw the single player experience by adding a shitty multiplayer mode.
