You know, the Red Steel games have swordplay that let you use the wiimote as an actual sword....do those count?

I will allow Strider, Shinobi, Rastan, and definitely Red Steel. Each offer different takes on melee combat, control, range, difficulty, and attack rate. They offer flow in manners unique from each other. But while playing, I want you to focus on how this melee is handled.

Remember to focus on the blade and how the swordsmanship impacts and defines the game. Because the steel is what you can trust!

Chakan would be an interesting game to explore for this.

Nah, I don't like repeating things I've already done.

The sword is the best weapon. This is not actually a ridiculous notion.

It really isn't. Once you get it to level 2, it becomes a lot easier.

I'm thinking of finally playing Dragon Quest Swords for the Wii if that counts.
If not I'll be looking into some arcade games. Maybe if DQ Swords works, I'll still play some arcade sword games too.

Waiting for someone to take up the mantle of Crossed Swords on Neo Geo.
