The long awaited second outing for Travis Touchdown hits the mark
18 October 2010
Excerpt: Introduction The first No More Heroes was something of a sleeper hit; a flop that could barely shift ten thousand copies at launch somehow managed to sell nearly fifty times that many once word of mouth got around as to just how off the wall it was. Veteran Japanese gamemaker Suda51 delivered a deeply cynical parody of the excesses of the games industry, with a crazy plot, a cast of outrageous characters and plenty of ultraviolent action.
Pros: Not your typical Wii game, a great follow up to a true original .
Cons: Not a game for all tastes . Violent, occasionally tasteless, and somewhat rough around the edges .
Excerpt: A great sequel to a great game, this strips out the in-joke sandbox world of the original to allow players to concentrate on the main business of revenge and over the top boss fights. The job system is back but now there is no more need to grind for money to continue the story. Instead money is there to pay for optional accessories, stat upgrades and equipment. The jobs have been changed to mini-games rendered in 8 bit glory complete with chip tune music.
Conclusion: Everything from the original is fixed. NMH1 was good but certain aspects of it were not good enough. Where you could only use one sword at a time before, now you can take all four with you and switch when each is needed. During battle, you briefly can't take damage while switching and your battery is fully restored upon changing your weapon which is brilliant. Each boss is suited to a certain sword, the main innovation being dual wielding katanas.
Conclusion: I have two words to describe this game - Very good. I think it does slightly pale in comparison to the original due to certain little bits and pieces - but i was too busy smashing up assasins to take notice. For starters there is a main map which takes you directly to where you want to go - no riding the schelptiger. (something like that) Also the 'jobs' are all 2D except for the scorpion hunting one. I'm not sure if this is good or bad.
Conclusion: First of all i have to say that i prefer the original no more heroes, however i became such a big fan of it and enjoyed the style of the game so much that i knew id still love this game nevertheless. The graphics are a bit improved, the script and humour is just as crazy and the bosses are as good as the first. What i really preferred about the first game was the side jobs.
Excerpt: If you liked the first game you'll surely like this one! Travis Touchdown returns to Destroy town hungry for more blood. in No More Heroes 2: Desperate struggle. Gameplay The game's mechanics remains intact in this new installment. You hack and slash your way up in the stages and rank up in the Assasins ranking list, There are tons of bosses in this one (you have to kill a bunch fellow assasins!).
Pros: Stylish, Cool, Fun, Addicting, Very Good Presentation
Summary: Also ich habe mir das Spiel gekauft, weil ich es gut finde mit dem Schwert herumzulaufen. Aber das Spiel hat voll die nervigen Ladezeiten. Außerdem ist es immer wieder das gleiche, bis zu den Bossen, keine Abwechslung, nichts. Die Minigames sind nicht schlecht, aber das mache es nicht besser. Also wer nur auf Blut, wenig Handlung und nervige Ladezeiten steht, kann es sich holen. Ansonsten lohnt es nicht die Investition zu tätigen.
Summary: Auch wenn der zweite Teil von No more Heroes nicht mehr so innovativ daher kommt wie sein Vorgänger, so knüpft er doch sehr gut an diesen an. Stil, Coolness und Spielspaß bleiben auf hohem Niveau. Leider ist das Spiel recht schnell durchgezockt und freischaltbare Extras sind spärlich gesät. Aber die Neuerungen sollen nicht unerwähnt bleiben.
