No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle continues the tale of punk anti-hero Travis Touchdown, the otaku and pro wrestling-obsessed assassin. Travis finds himself at the bottom of the United Assassins Association rankings after a three year absence and must now wage war to become the number one assassin once again.

The follow-up to the popular and critically acclaimed No More Heroes will offer fans infectious, fun gameplay and combat that allows you to wield not just one but two beam katana and face multiple bosses simultaneously in bigger-than-ever battles.

  • Fight your way back up to the number one rank against 50 of the most original, deadly and downright crazy assassins you will ever see
  • Hack and slash your way through enemy ranks with six types of beam katana, each with its own play style
  • Jump directly into the action thanks to a new navigation interface. Feel the speed of riding your bike in uniquely designed missions
  • Expect deadlier opponents, each carrying his own set of weapons (10 types), improved AI and more over-the-top combat
  • Unleash your inner power thanks to five special Dark Force moves, including the outrageous Tiger metamorphosis
  • Master up to 13 devastating wrestling moves to defeat your opponents in close combat
  • ModNation

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. Im really not fussed at all on 8-bit style retro gaming in this modern age of gaming so i was a bit gutted that the side jobs in NMH2 are all changed from the previous game to the 8-bit style games all apart from the scorpion catching game. never mind tho cos they still are a lot of fun and challenging so it hardly bothered me. i sort of preferred driving around the city as well but pointing at your next location from a birds eye view and arriving straight at that area was a welcome enough change for me. overall this is an amazing sequel to an amazing game and i hope we see a NMH3 one day so we can see more of Travis the great

 Excellent - Better Than The Original

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. This makes for quick slashes and devastating combos while other bosses may require your more powerful weapon. The next improvement is the central hub, meaning you select where to go rather than driving through empty streets. You also don't have to "buy" the next level. Any money you earn can therefore be spent on new weapons or training in the gym. Money is earnt by playing retro style mini games, some of which are very good. Finally, this means you spend more time in the actual game rather than grinding through hit and miss mini games looking for money. The gameplay is fantastic. Weapons are more balanced and bosses no longer have absurd amounts of health. Highlights were fighting an astronaught, the re-assembled destroy man and using Henry for a boss fight and Shinobu for some platforming. The whole thing is very funny, the combat gripping and the fighters increased (now to about 15 rather than the 8 of the original. I've not played a better hardcore game on the Wii, and this is without a doubt one of the best games on the system. Please buy this, I promise you won't regret it.

 Excellent - nearly as good as the original

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. The only reason to collect cash is to buy new weaponry unless you want to buy all the different clothes available. Also i miss the little intro before you enter an assasin area where it tells you the name of the assasin. However once you get going you barely notice this. Excellent game.
