Destructoid No More Heroes 2 review

It's extremely well crafted from beginning to end, and rarely (if ever) sacrifices fun for delivering a message. No More Heroes 2 still makes me laugh, scream, think, and violently wank, even more so after the first play-through. That's more than I can say for almost any game this generation.

Score: 9.5 -- Superb (9s are a hallmark of excellence. There may be flaws, but they are negligible and won't cause massive damage to what is a supreme title.)

LOL  oh my i didn't know that happened on Countdown.  Carol Vorderman must have doctored the cards for that to happen, she is a dirty slut like that Nyaa

was when Richard Whiteley was alive?

and that information is wrong.  it's not computer chosen, the player asks for consonant or vowel and she picks one from the respective pile until they have 9 letters

Gamespot 8.5 review of No More Heroes 2

"No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle is an overall improvement upon its predecessor. This greatly streamlined game throws out the tedium of the original, and a host of smart changes to the side jobs make even plumbing fun and rewarding. While an average play-through will last you 10 to 12 hours, you can easily put in more time by searching for all of the hidden collectibles, by earning enough cash to complete Travis' wardrobe set, and by replaying boss battles for low clear times in the unlockable Deathmatch mode. Whether you're yearning for a fun and violent Wii action game or simply want to live out a secret Star Wars fantasy of duel-wielding laser swords, No More Heroes 2 is the game for you"

Why is the score lower if the game is an improvement over the original?

^I was wondering if all the critical splooging on this game was to make up for them overlooking the first one.  Just as the critics did with Zombies vs Plants when they overlooked Peggle.

yes, quite possibly.  it happens often.  critics overlook or underestimate something then when people catch on through word-of-mouth giving it a cult status, the critics and press are quick and ready to love on the next thing in that line.

like how pulp fiction was every critic's wet dream after reservoir dogs gained cult status with very little press

^Yep, you said it.  I still make a point to watch ResDogs every year, but have only watched Pulp once, when it first came out at the theatre.  Not a bad film, but yeah, you are right to point out the critics overcompensated for their earlier oversight.

Well this could easily be because i've only read 2 reviews, but both acted at the time as if it was the saviour of the Wii and the bestest game ever. GS and Hyper.

But they're both usually pretty out of touch. Nyaa

I remember the first game getting good reviews. Undeservedly IMO.

New review

A portion of a Hanafuda Times review...

With its retro style, it’s practical use of the classic controller, and it’s more-than-amazing boss battles, Desperate Struggle is yet another masterpiece from the Quentin Tarantino of video games: Suda 51. Attention all devs everywhere: this is how a sequel is made.

Metacritic user reviews

Chris C. gave it a10:
I loved the wackiness of the first game, combined with the extreme mature-warranting content and addictive combat it was hard to imagine how it could get any better, and besides the problems with the overworld and some of the side jobs, I didn't think it could. Wrong. WRONG. There are more boss battles and though they're ended a little quicker, they're more memorable with characters quick to become staples in the series wherever it may develop. The side jobs are incredibly fun. As for the new playable characters, Shinobi was give or take for me, but Henry was an absolute blast and I wish they focused more on him. But all in all, this may be the best sequel I've ever played that solidified the No More Heroes franchise as one of my favorites; to stay in my memory and heart forever.

Gary B. gave it a10:
Clearly the most innovative game of the year. By innovation I mean the correct steps towards ways of gameplays that are unique and are showed in over the top ways. I love you No More Heroes 2.

Wes M. gave it a10:
No More Heroes 2 is an improvement on its predecessor in just about every way. It looks nicer, it's more polished, and almost every flaw from the original game has either been fixed or addressed in some way. Gone is the barren, boring overworld, replaced with a map menu system that makes traveling much less of a burden. You don't need to do boring jobs to earn money to progress through the game anymore. The jobs are completely optional, and have been replaced with charming 8-bit minigames that look like they fit right in with the NES library, and are just as fun to play. Combat, while still simple in nature, has been refined and expanded, and is overall a lot more satisfying. If you've been starved for another good Wii exclusive, wait no longer--pick this game up. You won't regret it at all.

Chris T. gave it a10:
I loved the first game. The sequel makes a good amount of changes and tweaks that overall makes the game more fun and polished. I probably the only few people that will miss driving your bike in Santa Destory, but hey at least you can do Boss matches right away now without having to save a big ton of money to move on in the story.

James gave it a10:
Fast-paced, frenetic, and above all else dripping with style, No More Heroes 2 delivers on everything that the original game should have been. For such a spectacular game to be launched on the same day as blockbuster titles such as Mass Effect 2, it deserves every ounce of praise it can garner.

Joe B. gave it a10:
The most over-the-top action GAME on the Wii! The reason why I said game in all caps was because this game makes you feel like you are playing a game instead of a movie. It does not take it self seriously and instead has the most corniest and craziest voice acting this generation.

Jonas Selvig gave it a10:
Tried this game early, and what can I say... Except that it's totally AWESOME! Seriously, this is without a doubt the best game on the Wii, and one of the best games I have ever played! Get it today!

So this is for Iga,

I was replaying NMH last night. On reflection I'm feeling a bit of what you were saying before. It is the motion controls that make the gameplay fun and acceptable even, otherwise you are mainly bashing A. It might be a bit boring with a standard pad.

Also even though the graphics sucked ass, some of it looked presentable, especially the cut scenes.

BUT after I beat the first boss I was back into the horrible overworld, doing boring jobs, to get tickets to do boring assasination missions.

Even if the graphics were better this would still be boring crap that needed to be cut to get to the good stuff.

Anyone playing NMH2 other than me? After getting off to a slow start I am right back where I was with NMH1 (that is, loving it).

I hate that they took out the bike riding, probably because of all you haters confusing this for a GTA style game the first time around.

Only 25,000 sold in Jan? Sickening.
