19 Reasons to Buy a Wii: #12

The Nintendo Wii is about to launch on November 19, 2006. Between now and then, Game Freaks 365 is going to list 19 reasons each day for why you should buy a Wii.

#12 Red Steel – Easily one of the most highly anticipated games on Nintendo’s Wii is Ubisoft’s Red Steel. Possibly the most important 3rd party launch title on the system, a few things about Red Steel make it significant. First, it utilizes the Wiimote for its gun action (you can even twist the gun sideways) and sword fighting elements. Second, Ubisoft is predominately known for its more mature titles on the Xbox, such as Rainbow Six, Splinter Cell, Far Cry and Prince of Persia. Finally, Nintendo has its first shooter, outside of Metroid Prime, to point to since the Nintendo 64 with GoldenEye and Perfect Dark. If things shape up as nicely as they look, Red Steel could be one of the best shooters of the year.
