    cweilee's No More Heroes (Wii)

    [February 8, 2008 03:09:30 AM]
    The game continues with the violent fighting. However, in between boss battles, I have to get random jobs to get enough money to fight the next boss. The job ranged from working at a gas station, cleaning the streets/wall of the city, scorpion extermination to full assassination job. These jobs are repetitive. For example, I have assassinate the CEO of Pizza Butt Company three different time just with the difficulty adjusted. It was annoying to do these jobs.

    The story, however, continues to be riveting. I wanted to know what is going to happen next and what is the back story of the next boss. I needed to know who Travis Touchdown really is. The game never really explained how he ended up in Santa Destroy or why he is going after the assassin. People just assume that he like to fight and kill people. The character development stays interesting throughout the game.

    The battle system is the most interesting in this game. Weapons can be upgraded and equipment can be attached to the light saber. Managing between charging your weapon and actually attacking is tough because if the enemy catches you charging your weapon they will not hesitate to attack you. However, at the end of the game, I acquired a light saber and an attachment that allowed me to never need to charge the weapon again. That is quite useful because now I have no need to charge and I can just fight freely without having to worry that my sword is going to stop working. I like the battle system and the upgrade system wherein you have to make enough money to buy it.

    One thing I found annoying with the boss battles is that I have to find the exact time to attack them, and every other time they simply block it. When you do find it, you just keep repeating it till they die. Also, some bosses, such as bad girl, will decide not to let you have that opportunity too many time and just keep doing whatever is that they do, and never let you attack. Those kind of bosses are not even hard, but they just want to extend the game as long as possible and annoy the player to a maximum level. Other than that, the game has a great battle system and a great story.

    No more heroes is game about Travis Touchdown, an Otaku turned assassin, who wants to kill all the assassin that are ranked higher than him. He starts out as a rank 11th, and kill his way to number one. Throughout the story, the player encounter twists plot and great boss battle. In order to advance, Touchdown has to pay an entry fee, which is gained by doing random jobs in the city of Santa Destroy, California.

    This is one of the more violent game I played. The battle sequence goes from battle the enemy and finishing them with a gory move. However, it is not violent to the point where I don't want to play. The blood spilled was so great that I know it is not real, so I am not repulse by it. The characters were great. The game, in nature, makes fun of society and its quirks. Travis Touchdown, an otaku assassin, is not the average protagonist. He is a nerd, and not sociable for he likes anime, games, and to kill people. I relate to him because I am nerd. However, I do not like killing people, so people reading this can relax.

    The story is not the major aspect of the game, but it is worth noting that the game has a great story, with turns and twists. However, it is not as deep as I expected, but good nonetheless. Each boss battle has its own story, some more important than other and it is always interesting to find out how each character is going to turn out. Some of them are cheap (destroy man), twisted (bad girl), and interesting (Shinobu), and that only begins to describe each character.

    The most important part of the game is the battle system. You battle a person and when they run out of health you can do finishing move wherein a copious amount of blood spills out. It was fun to do just that, and when it comes to the boss battle, you need to know when they have an opening that I can exploit and do maximum damage. People watching the game all say that the game is a bit too violent, but say that they enjoy watching just because they want to see how I am going to kill the boss.
