There's nothing out there quite like No More Heroes. Born on the Wii by developer Suda 51, the original No More Heroes was wild and outlandish, a stylized beyond belief game for the Wii. Nothing quite like it has come since then, and maybe nothing will.
No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle (Wii)
Taking place three years after the events of the original No More Heroes, Travis Touchdown is nothing more than a memory. For some reason, the people of Santa Destroy are just as stupid as the denizens of Metropolis, as Travis Touchdown exists only as a local legend. Anyway, it's been three years, and the assassin's are making a comeback. The first one we see? Skelter Helter, the albino brother of Helter Skelter, Travis' first assassin he killed in game one. Seems little brother is more than pissed off and is ready for revenge.
I loved that I could jump, and repeatedly bounce off enemies with a perfectly timed attack, even garnering an impressed node from Suda himself. All in all, she's not that much different from Travis, (even having to wipe down her sword instead of charging her sword, but doing the same thing gameplay-wise) but she promises to break things up nicely.
