There was so much I wanted to like about this game, whether it be fighting the Asian mafia, rescuing an Asian Hottie *who has a very American voice?* but damn, the controls are terrible. I'd think the Wiimote could be better utilized. Metroid Prime 3 has better controls, actually almost every game on the Wii is superior.

I didn't last very long in the game. I lost interest after trying the sword controls.

This could have been a very good game. This could have paved the way for a number of great FPS games for the Wii, but no, they screw up the game. I don't know who to blame, Ubisoft or Nintendo.

If you can deal with the crappy controls, the rest of the game is superior in every other way, but damn the controls suck.

Common knowledge among most except those in denial. While the controls work fine as a FPS, the sword control touted as so called 'accurate' and interpretive is bullshit. It'll do the wrong swing, not swing, or the every time you try thing of do it like nearly 2sec later so you end up fucked in a fight. The thing that makes it most memorable is that at times those bosses who get into it with katana kick your ass and you get to repeat 10+min of level to get raped by the delayed shit eating controls.

RS2 is coming, uses that Wiimotion whatever the hell thing it is that does real 1:1 and should be fantastic given that so wait for that one.

I wanted to like the game, if only they didn't screw up the sword controls. I am just glad I could trade it in to another store and get a decent break on the trade.

I hope the sequel is better, it'd have to try hard to be worse.
