Red Steel starts you off as Scott, an underpaid bodyguard who falls in love with Miyu Sato, the girl he’s supposed to be protecting. At the start Scott and Miyu have dinner before an arranged meeting with Miyu’s father, the notorious Isao Sato. There is this atmosphere of nothing more than a nervous outing that is supposed to end with the father smiling his approval of his daughter’s taste in men, however, as Miyu approaches her father, an assassin comes from the kitchen and unless a fury of bullets from the SMG hidden within his waiter’s costume. Scott tries to catch his fleeing fiancé, but finds himself on the wrong end of a gun, the butt end.
1) AI is ridiculous, but kicks your butt sometimes
2) The sword fighting can be kind of lame
3) Story is lacking, but the dialogues are great and the accents make sense.
4) Cut scenes won’t stop no matter how many buttons you click
5) Watch out for accidentally using up your special ability meter when you duck while locked on.
