Excerpt: Suda 51 likes madness; clearly. No More Heroes, his Wii-exclusive third-person hack-em-up through barmy boss fights and mundane part-time jobs, was mental. The sequel, Desperate Struggle, is even crazier.
Conclusion: All in all, NMH2 is a much better game than its predecessor. Almost everything that detracted from the experience found in the original NMH has been addressed and is now vastly more enjoyable.

Excerpt: When No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle begins, two modern-day swordsmen face each other across the moonlit rooftop. Travis ignites his energy blade. The Cloud cosplayer on the opposing side draws his buster sword. They charge each other; blades clash and sparks fly.
