No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggles Wii ReviewPosted on 2010-06-20 21:58:08 by Thomas De Maesschalck
For those in PAL territories, No More Heroes was quite the non-event. Released a significant amount of time after the US release, the game did not garner the attention it probably deserved. With this in mind, the publishers have sent the game worldwide much quicker. We went into this game expecting a quirky and fun romp; what we found was one of the most crazy, interesting and whacked out games that we have played in a long time, and that can only be a good thing.
In NMH2 you once again play as Travis Touchdown, a cool, hip young guy who is a hit with the ladies. Travis is also an assassin. The first game saw him reach the status of number one assassin, but for one reason or another in the years since, he has dropped back down outside the top fifty and it is your goal in NMH2 to reach that number one spot again. The timeline in between the two games is actually not filled at all and comically skipped over with a cut scene during the start of the game. Travis talks about how going over the past two years will probably bore the gamer and considering that NMH doesn’t have the strongest story, he is probably right.
