Summary:

Hello, welcome to my review of No More Heroes, an M rated action game for the Wii. No More Heroes is a game developed by Grasshopper and designed by Goichi Suda, also known as Suda51. In this review, I will talk about the game's presentation, which includes the games graphics and sound, story, gameplay and replayability factor. Each area will be graded out of five, the score measuring the quality of each aspect. The final score will not be an average score of the sections mentioned above; the final score is only there to gauge the strength of the recommendation, not measure the overall qual...

A great title and something for the hardcore to latch to

The good:

Insane customization
Ridiculous Boss Battles
Easy to use controls
A nice story
Will make you laugh

The bad:

Driving travis's motercylce has some pretty bad controls
Bland side missions
The open world really doesn't offer much to do.
repetitive enemies.

Summary:

No more heroes has been out for a while now. However I only recently picked it up after my xbox broke. Let me tell you for the cheap price you can get it for now this is no bottom of the bucket game. The controls are so great. This isn't the typical Wii waggle fest. A attack b does stun moves and follow the directions on screen does special. Simple to use and feels pretty good to use also.

My personal favorite part of the game would the amount of customiztion you can do. From changing every part of Travis's clothes to his weapon, to renting movies to watch this game lets you change almost ev...

A new kind of Hero

The good:

-Unique Style
-Over-the-top gameplay
-Insane Characters
-Eccentric Story
-Great Replay Value
-Great Customization
-Multiple Difficultys
-Amazing Boss Fights
-Very Funny Humor

The bad:

-Repeated Enemies
-Town is dissapointing
-Motorcylce is a joke
-Linear in terms of the missions

Summary:

No More Heroes is another eccentric creation from the mind of Suda 51, who created another gem of a game, Killer 7. From a first look, it may seem like a trashy excuse for a hardcore game on the Wii, but with a closer look, it's a diamond in the rough in terms of the shovel ware that comes to this console.

The story is simple, yet complex in ways. You play as Travis Touchdown, a porn mongering, lazy, badass that wins a beam sword (yes, it's taken from a lightsaber, get over it) and wants to become the greatest assassin in the world. You have to fight through ten of the best assassins in the ...

The same charm you found in Killer 7, only better.

The good:

- Simply, satisfying combat that fails to get old.
- Cell Shaded graphics well fit the game play.
- Enemies split in half as blood and gore rains upon the landscape, while coins jingle into your pocket. Very satisfying for any "gore fanatics" out there.
- Storyline was well organized and had plenty of laughs; plenty of surprising twists at the end.
- Traveling the city was easy, and the freedom to visit any shop or gym between ranked fights gave the game that "sandbox, Grand Theft Auto" feel to it. Not a GTA clone in any way, however.
- Boss fights are epic and intense. In many ways as great as the boss fights found in Legend of Zelda.
- You will never experience anything like it.

The bad:

- While the city is rather fun to do missions in, it's a bit more of a series of roadways to get where you want rather than somewhere you would want to explore (treasure hunting aside).
- The overworld could have looked much better, with texture detail lacking in many areas and resolution looking stale for even those who have their standards at last gen.
- Framerate issues haunt the city like the plague. Nothing unplayable, but the game seems to go from "smooth Ranking fights" to "slow, choppy city exploration".
- While many weapons are available, there is no preference really. Each weapon is a better version of the previous one, which means no matter what you will end up using the MK-III Beam Katana or get owned in the final boss fight.

Summary:

The game starts you off as Travis Touchdown, an anime obsessed young adult with a hidden past and little money to live off of. Realizing he is poor, Travis buys a beam katana online (according to the manual) and receives a gig to "assassinate the Drifter." After killing the Drifter in a quick but unplayable battle scene, according to Sylvia Krystal, a mysterious woman running the UAA association that hired you, you are now ranked eleventh on the list of United States assassins. Because of this, you realize other assassins will try to kill and take your title, and you realize your only optio...

No more heroes!

The good:

  • Good storyline.
  • Some interesting cell-shaded graphics.
  • Great character ideas.
  • Weapons are interesting and all are different.
  • A great range of superpowers.
  • Controls are easy too get the hang of.

    The bad:

  • Enemies are too easy too kill.
  • Speaking is not synced.

    Summary:

    No More Heroes is an action/adventure game. It's set in a place called Santa Destroy. It's about a man called Travis Touchdown who one night meets a girl called Sylvia. He kills a biker but he doesn't know it was actually an assassin. This assassin was the 11th ranked assassin in Santa Destroy. Now he thinks there's only one way to go - all the way to number one!

    Sylvia is part of an association for assassins. This association deals with the ranking of assassins. You don't really learn much about them but after you go up a rank you must pay to officially become the next ranked assassin. Tra...
