No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle
A close to perfect sequel.
Fun like the original No More Heroes 2 delivers on the expectations in almost every area. The graphics are more stylish and the combat is about the same which is great. Also, the boss battles are just as fun and the real highlight of the game. Furthermore, Travis is just as cool and fun and Sylvia is just as pretty and demanding. A fine wrap to the series with only a few flaws (the strenght mini game has unbalanced difficulty and your memory will fool you). Great game have fun!
Lots of style, but needs more substance
No More Heroes 2 is a 3rd-person, slash-and-gun action game with an anime style that makes fun of itself, often breaking the 4th wall. Travis returns with his trusty beam saber, and the gameplay is still solid...but there's no traveling on foot between locations this time--you just go straight to them from a world map. As in the first game, your goal is to make your way to the top by killing numbered assassins to increase your rank. Most rank battles consist of hacking your way through generic foes in a parking lot / building before confronting a wacky boss. Money-earning mini-games have now been compressed into "jobs" that resemble 8-bit NES titles...it's pretty funny stuff. The graphics, gameplay, and music in No More Heroes 2 do little to stand apart from other games in the action genre. Not much has been done wrong, but for a 2010 release it feels outdated...even for the Wii (at least you can play it with the classic controller, thankfully). If you enjoy quirky anime humor, No More Heroes 2 is certainly worth a look. For everyone else, this is a decent action title...but you might be turned off by all of the weirdness.
Best game on the Wii
I think that this is the best video game on the Nintendo Wii. You play as Travis Touchdown an assassin who fights in a competition to see who is the number 1 assassin. The game play is great, it is action packed and fast paced. Graphics are good especially since this game is on the Nintendo Wii. The lasting appeal is good I have already beaten the game and I am still playing, I have almost beaten it twice. The controls are pretty good, if you don't like to play with the Nunchuck controller you can play with the Classic controller. I love this game is amazing and I was knowing to be great because it was made by Suda51.

The first one was better.
I bought this game because I loved the first no more heroes. I assumed that the story wouldn't be as lacking as the first one but I was wrong. They almost completely changed everything about the no more heroes series that I love! The environment hasn't changed but you can't ride your motorcycle around the city like the first one. The boss battles are excellent as usual but I assume that Mr. Touchdown was going to start at the bottom and actually work his way to the top this time. Overall this game is extremely disappointing.
The best Wii game and at an affordable price.
This, in my opinion, the greatest Wii game ever made, gameplay is improved from the first, the graphics are better, there are more assasins, to fight, and even Jeane the cat makes her return as an overweight and lazy cat that Travis has to get back into shape. There are all new beam katanas to play with including the ability to duel wield a certain type. The games story is great but there is one huge plot hole that has caused me a lot of confusion. Other then that the humor and violence are still here and better then ever. If you own a Wii and don't have this game you should do yourself a favor a pick this game up for the cheap price it is currently at.
This Has Excellent Gameplay But A Lacking In Story
It gets rid of the dull hub world from the last game and the melee attacks can be chained with the beam katana attack which is good but the story is something of issue some excuses that come about to skip plotholes but its still an okay game improving where the first game lacked but lacking where the first game improved ... oh the ending sucks too
Way too tough
I loved the first game, and I never died, not even on the toughest setting. On this game, I could barely get past the 2nd battle! on the easiest setting! There's several reasons for this: the battles are often overpowered, the environment is extremely dark, and the camera shakes alot, Then there's the matter of getting to the ranking battles. The guys with guns never let me get more than a step before knocking me down, the beam katana guys are rarely stunned, and to top it all off, the fat guys have a lot of stamina, and are virtually unstunnable. I miss being able to roam the city, and buy upgrades for my katana, not just new katanas. All around: this game sucks.
suda51 makes me happy
No More Heroes 2 is a very fun game. The game brings you back to the world of Travis Touchdown and you start all over in the assassin rankings. The game is features some really fun gameplay. this sequel features a classic controller unlike its predecesor which is a very good thing.The gameplay is very fun and easy to pick up.the story is really cool but not too serious but it is very very funny.The graphics are very much like a comic book.This game is very fun and delivers charm
The Wii isn't just for kids!
I went to the local GameStop and told them what type of game I was looking for. They gave me this title, I had my doubts but gave it a try. Right from the start the game is a blast. Hard to believe the Wii had a game this fun, awesome and hardcore. It doesn't take itself too seriously and just delivers action. I also found myself laughing constantly and jumping to my feet to fight bosses. Loved it.
