EDIT: This game does require Motion+, and the item below doesn't come with one. If you already have Motion+ for your Wii, then you're good to go. If you don't, then you need to either buy the bundled version or buy a Motion+ stand-alone item.

Found this while on NewEgg. Game-only (no Motion+ accessory bundled) for $12.99 with free shipping:

Damn that's tempting but I'm still holding out in hopes of a NA release on the PS3/360.

I'm not sure whether to pick this up. I have some interest in the game, mostly for its art design and the fact that it's a Motionplus game. It didn't exactly get glowing reviews, but $13 is a good price.

Ordered this when I saw it on SD this morning. I already have the motion plus, so $13 (no tax and fs) sounds good to me.

Thanks for posting this. Just picked up a copy. I'll borrow a motion plus from the office.

Ordered one too -- have a motion plus hanging around that I haven't used outside of Wii Sports resort, so it will be nice to try it out.

Sweet, in for one. I was looking for a deal on the Red Steel 2 bundle to pick up an extra MotionPlus attachment, but this is cheap enough that I could just buy the MP separately if I wanted to.

Excellent, thanks. Been waiting for this myself.
Didn't get good reviews? Metacritic = 80 from 73 critics, 8.8 from 126 user ratings. That's pretty decent, especially for what it is (semi-niche motionplus game)...

Yeah just remember Motion Plus is required to play it at all.

damn, nice looking out Shrike, that is a pretty solid price if you already have motion+

why do you guys think this game tanked so fast in price? It didn't get horrible reviews or anything..I really enjoyed the first one, but maybe that was b/c it was the honeymoon period w/ the Wii..

According to Wikipedia, sales were likely below expectations.

Ubisoft originally expected to sell 1 million copies of Red Steel 2, but after poor sales of their game Avatar, they slashed their sales predictions in half. According to Jason VendenBerghe at his keynote speech at the 2010 European game developers conference, Red Steel 2 has sold approximately 270,000 copies worldwide.

This looks entertaining to me, and I actually have 2 motionplus things (got the resort bundle that came with two of them), so if this is still available after my officemates leave (since I need to pull out my credit card, which would make it obvious I'm not working at the moment), I'm in for 1.

Hmm, on the one hand, this seems like an interesting game for a good price and, I already have motion plus that's just gathering dust. On the other hand, there's this big backlog looming over me...

Ignore the backlog! Keep filling it up! That seems to be my strategy. I've got a TON of 360 games in the backlog, and a fair number of Wii games as well. Plus some PS2 and gamecube games.

Grargh, too many games, too little time!

In for one. I picked up a MotionPlus as a standalone during the TRU accessories sale -- I've had nothing to use it on until now. Thanks, Shrike.
