No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle (Wii)

 

In the bizarre metropolis of Santa Destroy, duels to the death are broadcast on television, and an entire economy has sprung up around the business of taking lives. No More Heroes 2 is a satirical, irreverent, and bloody tale of revenge set in a world...

In the bizarre California metropolis of Santa Destroy, your trainer encourages you to get naked for your workout, and hired goons bemoan the loss of their spleen when cleaved in two. If you've played any of director SUDA-51's previous games, especially...

Goichi “Suda 51″ Suda is kind of a weird guy. The Japanese producer, famous for works like “The Silver Case” and the highly underappreciated, cult favorite Gamecube title Killer 7...

Original gameplay separates it from anything currently available ; One of the best uses of the Wii controls available yet ; Hash and Slash gameplay pleasantly reminiscent of games like Final Fight and Battletoads

Can get repetitive ; Side quests feel more like chores than missions

What happens when a Japanese developer seeks to make a Western game that apes Japanese culture? No More Heroes 2 is the gonzo answer to that question.

Otaku wrestling enthusiast/assassin Travis Touchdown returns to the Wii two years after successfully climbing the ranks of the United Assassins Association. He still has his beam katana (originally won via online auction), he still has his pro...

A lot of the "boring" bits of the previous game have been excised to keep the game's pace much faster than the original. The reverence for old-school 8-bit games is also a nice nostalgic touch

The game gets lost in its symbolism at times, resulting in an overall weaker narrative than the first time around (which was admittedly pretty screwy itself)

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle finally provides the Wii with a great game for the mature gaming audience. Desperate Struggle is a winning combination of 3rd person melee hack and slash action with a plethora of boss battles that make for a truly...

You can make a killing in this business.

Same simple, satisfying combat; Same great dialogue and voice acting; Same incredible over-the-top style; Lots more 8-bit mini-games; Boss battles are always fun

but tactics are generally the same for all; Deceptively short

A punk rock, steel-fisted, otaku extravaganza.

Powerful action sequences; slick controls; soundtrack of the year (?); retro-inspired mini-games; relevantly stylish character designs

Most bosses are not challenging enough; terrible secondary character

Despite the outlandish character designs, rampant sexual innuendo, and the prevalence of severed, talking heads, I hesitate to call Desperate Struggle ?bizarre.? In the tradition of filmmakers like Takashi Miike and Quentin Tarantino, Suda 51 is a...

Travis returns for a second helping of bloody mayhem, and it proves to be just as tasty as the first time.

Enjoyable surreal storyline and characters ; Satisfying battle engine ; Great controls ; Easy Navigation of Santa Destroy ; Fun mini-games and side jobs ; Stylish graphics and sounds

Problematic camera ; Frustrating Shinobu levels ; Slightly repetitive ; Short

This reminds me, I still need to get the first game.

Review: No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle (Nintendo Wii)

 

It was a crazy game that destroyed the fourth wall, was filled with all sorts of absurd characters and required doing side jobs like mowing lawns in order to progress through the game. Plus, when I got the game it was fairly cheap, so it was easy to...

No More Heroes 2 is a technical disaster of poor gameplay concepts and bad design. Grasshopper Manufacture decided to sacrifice solid game mechanics and cohesive storytelling in favor of style and a message about video game characters, creators and...
