Review: No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle (Nintendo Wii)
8 August 2010
Summary: 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 the people who play them being stuck in a cycle of violence.
Conclusion: It’s clearly an overblown production, revelling in sex, hyperviolence and (quite literally) toilet humour. There are noticeable highs and lows to the script, with some jokes working and others falling flat, but the solid combat engine running through the proceedings makes up for any negatives.
Extreme violence, profanity, and sex make this not for kids.

Summary: Parents need to know that No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle is extraordinarily violent and chock full of crass sexual innuendo, making it a game unsuitable for anyone under the age of 18. The sword-based battle sequences are filled with flying heads, lopped off limbs, and buckets of spurting blood. Meanwhile, most narrative scenes are loaded with lewd sexual metaphors and women who have unrealistically large breasts and impractically tiny skirts.
Wii Review - 'No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle'
1 April 2010
Summary: No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle continues the tale of punk anti-hero Travis Touchdown, the Japanese anime Otaku, and pro wrestling-obsessed assassin. Travis finds himself at the bottom of the UAA (United Assassins Association) rankings and must wage war to become the No. 1 assassin once again.
Conclusion: Travis Touchdown in his bloody conquest to become the number 1 ranked assassin, as well as the chance for some one-on-one time with sexy Frenchwoman Silvia. With its fourth-wall references to older (and more coherent) games combined with a tongue-in-cheek humor and a dash of gratuitous ultraviolence, No More Heroes gained critical acceptance as well as placing it as Suda’s most popular game yet.
Excerpt: 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 entertaining game. Its unique, its flashy, its crude, its funny, and its definitely not for gamers under seventeen. Heres what I thought of No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle.
