Description
There's only one way to the top ranks of the underground world of paid assassins and it's going to get messy. Lucky for Travis Touchdown, he just knocked off the world's eleventh best without breaking a sweat. The life of fame and fortune couldn't be closer. Heads will roll and names will be taken, but everything is not what it seems. It all started after Travis was assigned to take on the drifter known as Helter Skelter, the United Assassin Association's 11th ranked assassin. After a grueling battle, Travis emerged the winner, collected the spoils of battle and claimed his title as the new 11th ranked assassin. However, the situation turns out to be more complicated than Travis first thought. It is after the mysterious beauty, Sylvia Christel, appears that the real adventure begins.

No More Heroes
4 Star Review  GameZone - Feb 11, 2008

If you own a big enough shovel, you could conceivably plough through all of the mini-game collections and PS2 ports on the Wii - chances are you’ll come up with about two or three games worth your time. To kick off the new year, a year hopefully of higher quality Wii games, Grasshopper Studios has released No More Heroes - a quirky, Tarantino-esque button masher with more style than a truckload of GTA clones. Grasshopper Studios is led by famed designer Suda 51, who led the team in making such cult hits as Killer 7 on the GameCube and Contact for the DS, which is one of my personal favorites.

From the creators of Killer 7, No More Heroes takes place in the town of Santa Destroy. You play as Travis Touchdown, who is on a quest to get money so he can buy videogames. When he wins a beam katana through an online auction and uses the weapon to begin a career as a proffessional killer. One day an assasin named Helter Skelter shows up and they face off.

Great game with and original cast of characters
4 Star Review   By member 0wen - Aug 11, 2008   

Strengths: Interesting story and characters, great gameplay.

Weakness: The overworld graphics.

No More Heroes is a very entertaining title for the Wii with a great cast of characters and story. The use of the Wii motion controls works well in battles and brings a lot of originality to the game. The overworld between missions is a little plain and boring but once you are in the battles, you forgot about those little annoyances. This is an M rated game and the content does really justify that rating. Still there is a lot of variety in the world of No More Heroes and a lot of stuff to collect and fun things to do.

Interesting cross of genres
4 Star Review   By member justin42 - Jul 31, 2008   

Strengths: Great style, unlike anything else on the Wii, good gameplay

Weakness: Maybe a bit too much flash at times, sometimes it's a bit inconsistent

No More Heroes is a game that definitely pushes what you'd expect to find on the Wii. It brings a GTA-style open world to the system, although with a twist. It brings a lot of style, a bit of humor, and lots of stylized blood to the Wii. (definitely note the game's M rating). It's a very different experience and one of the best third party uses of the Wii system (remote, pushing the hardware, etc) so far. So definitely points for that. There is a lot of style in the game with the cel shaded graphics and the overall feel of the game. Sometimes it almost all feels too slick-- like the developers had an overall vision, mostly worked it to fruition, but glossed over some minor details when they couldn't work them out (some of the game gets repetitive, and some of it is just plain weird). If you're into the GTA games, or just want to swordfight with your Wii remote, or the like-- it's a great game to try out. It's not going to be for everyone, but if you enjoy this sort of game, it's a great experience on the Wii.

No More
4 Star Review   By member Admiral_Ackbar - Jul 2, 2008   

Strengths: Good use of the wiimote. Great dialog and characters. Fun combat.

Weakness: A little short. The game world is mediocre.

No More Heroes has great character, whit, and style that borders on the just plain loopy. The cobat is fast and furious with the wiimote. It's a truly great action game. On teh downside, the game world to get from point a to b to advance the story is mediocure at best and terrible at worst. But as a solid action game, it's a must own for the Wii.

No More Heroes
4 Star Review   By member psincubus - Jun 30, 2008   

Strengths: good gameplay, good story, nice art style

Weakness: a little repetitive

No More Heroes follows around a guy who is fighting assassins to 'win' over a lady. The game is a fun smash'em up type game. The character design, main hub area, and art style are all excellent. The game gets a little old after awhile but is still fun throughout.

No More Heroes
5 Star Review   By member botticus - Jun 10, 2008   

Strengths: Visceral action, great personality

Weakness: Overworld

No More Heroes is the best action game on the Wii. Motion controls are implemented perfectly, the story is crazy but just zany enough to keep you interested - you'll find it difficult to stop playing. A few niggling issues aside (boring side jobs that aren't necessary to do more than once, bland overworld, rough bike controls), NMH is a great choice for anyone looking for something to splash stylized blood on their screen.

Solid entertainment
5 Star Review   By member masonistic - May 19, 2008   

Strengths: Unique, humorous, decent controls

Weakness: Some repetition, a shorter game

I really enjoy No More Heroes. It has some good humor, the control scheme works, and there's enough variation to keep you playing. You'll be able to find and buy different clothes, weapon upgrades, training, and videos to change Travis (the main character). On the downside, a good portion of the game involves you walking/running/riding a motorcycle/scooter around the city. You'll also be doing side jobs, which are basically mini-games, in order to get enough money to pay an entrance fee to proceed on to the next boss battle. You'll end up doing some of these a few times, but I thought they were fun and didn't mind it. There really isn't anything else out there which is like No More Heroes. It's definitely a unique game which should provide some entertainment. I would have been satisfied with the value of the game if I had bought it at release for fifty dollars, but at the under thirty dollar price I got it for (which should now be pretty common at most stores) makes it very worthy of being added to your collection.

over the top action
5 Star Review   By member bauerpower - May 11, 2008   

Strengths: a full fledged action wii game, great use of wiimote, great graphics, funny dialogue/plot

Weakness: the world isnt very interesting, time between missions are boring

No More Heroes is the latest game from Suda51, the man behind the very confused but awesome Killer 7. No More Heroes is much easier to understand with its simplistic plot, and the dialogue is funny at times. This is a straight beat em up game that has good use of the Wiimote, and one of the few games on the Wii that isn't just a casual or minigame collection. Any hardcore Wii gamer shouldn't avoid this title

STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE
5 Star Review   By member Ninshadow - May 3, 2008   

Strengths: Its sword fighting and quirky story

Weakness: Bosses are crazy hard

No More Heroes it's also one of the most violent games. There is nothing like killing a quirky boss with lightsaber. The story is only thing that kept me going through boss after boss. The fighting mechanic is strange after Travis defeats an enemy he has a random chance of getting a power up which can be great at but annoying at times.

Finally, a great 3rd party ORIGINAL Wii title!
4 Star Review   By member Karyyk - Apr 25, 2008   

Strengths: Great use of Wiimote, great art style, vicious sense of humor, satisfying action.

Weakness: Not the deepest game in the world, a bit on the short and easy side.

If you've been waiting for a great original third-party game for the Wii, you don't have to look any more, No More Heroes has arrived. With its cell-shaded visuals, vicious sense of humor and gratifying hack-n-slash gameplay (thanks largely to the use of the Wiimote...it works GREAT here), there haven't been that many Wii games to date that really have and deserve their M rating. That really makes No More Heroes a bit more unique in its own right, as it's basically a gamer's game, which to date have been rare on the Wii. Pick it up.

Blast to play
5 Star Review   By member vherub - Apr 1, 2008   

Strengths: Great humor, soid use of wii controls, constantly engaging

Weakness: driving can be a hassle

I bought Killer 7 and really wanted to like it. But after about 30 minutes of playing, I couldn't get into the game. If you were turned off by Killer 7 and reluctant to try NMH, this game is immediately fun to play, no wandering around wondering what is going on and waiting for something cool to happen. I particularly enjoy the swordfighting, as it makes solid use of the wiimote. The art direction is good, and the game looks nice on the wii. The little touches like the leaderboard screen, adult content or the injokes are appreciated all the more because the Wii has so little like this. i strongly recommend this to anyone on the fence even a little intrigued. Hopefully there will be a sequel.

AWESOME!
5 Star Review   By member konmai - Mar 10, 2008   

Strengths: Overall Good Game!

Weakness: NONE!

This game was not hyped up at all. In fact, I didn't even hear about it until my brother mentioned he wanted it. So we went over to Best Buy to grab Super Smash Bros. Brawl & this game. They're BOTH awesome. Compared to the 360's Assassin's Creed for all its hype, this game pwns! The storyline is interesting, the voice acting is superb & I'm still surprised this is such a superb assassin-type storyline game! Some parts are really funny, too. For instance, when you go to save the game, you'll know what I'm talking about -- GENIUS stuff right here!

Extremely fun visceral game -- definitely M rated!
4 Star Review   By member lancevii - Feb 20, 2008   

Strengths: Fun visceral play & great overall art style.

Weakness: Some areas of simple blocky graphics.

Travis Touchdown climbs the Assassin Ranking ladder in a town named Santa Destroy -- this is not a deep cerebral experience :) Great game for visceral emotional fun -- over the top action (finishing moves, blood, language, content) definitely makes this an M-rated game! Great reviews by some press and mediocre from others -- I thought the game was a lot of fun! Not hearing a lot of buzz about this game but it certainly deserves some!
