Summary: I've been wanting to buy this since it first came out. But since I forgot and was strapped for cash, I never bought it until just recently. Its a huge improvement over the first one. The graphics look prettier, and the new side quests are a blast. Not to mention the visuals looks rather nice for a game thats not HD.
No More Heroes 2: A sequel that is probably better than the original.

Summary: No More Heroes 2: The sequel to finally shut those so-called hardcore gamers up about the Wii not being a hardcore system. This game is even more outlandish than its predecessor, take for example, the fight in roughly the middle of the game where the protagonist and his opponent are piloting giant mecha... or where our hero takes on a giant robo-brain, or even the end where he takes on a super-roided up opponent...
Summary: The action is great in this game, just like the first. But what made the first one so great was the ridiculous story and characters. The story and characters are still ridiculous, but it lost some of the charm. I'm definitely glad I got this game, and I'll definitely get the next one, but it's not as good as the first game.
Summary: This game, like the previous, is an excellent short one-player game for the price. This time around the control scheme has changed a bit, which will take some getting used to for those who played the original. The city travel is gone, replaced with a menu-based travel system. The minigames this time around are in an old NES style, which I quite enjoyed.
Summary: I absolutely adored the first No More Heroes. The combat was so satisfying, and riding around Santa Destroy on the motorcycle was fun. NMH2 is a good example of what happens when you try to please your critics. I think some people criticized having to actually drive from place to place on your motorcycle. I would not be one of those people. I loved driving that thing. They took the open-world element out of the game.
Summary: This game is all about sex, violence, and more violence! The graphics are excellent, the story shallow and juvenile, and the blood is very excessive. I can't really say anything that hasn't been said before now, just buy this game and we can hope more studios will make games for the Wii that are like this one!
Summary: The first "No More Heroes" was a good game with glaring issues. It's fair to say that those issues kept most gamers from getting much past the title screen. However, I actually found that game enjoyable. I'm not sure if it was the epic boss battles, the wackadoo story, or the pure Japanese-i-ness clearly present. Either way, it wasn't the gimmicky controls or the "shiny new tech" feel that has sold many a Wii.
