PLAY NO MORE HEROES

By Chris Remo, Jan 27, 2008 11:39pm PST

I will write more, hopefully today, but for now let me just say: please go and purchase Grasshopper Manufacture's just-released Wii brawler, No More Heroes. Director Goichi Suda (aka Suda 51) has stated his concern that the Wii audience is entirely comprised of casual gamers, but he just released this game, so if you are looking for something badass on the system having already played Super Mario Galaxy and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, you have no excuse not to play this and prove him wrong.

This game is violent, creative, insane, and a bona fide video game explosion. Like I said, I will write more later--currently, however, I am thoroughly and violently engrossed in No More Heroes.

  • Played it to the first boss...I can tell this is one game I will play to completion. At this point in the game, it seems like it's pretty much all combat, which is indeed fucking brutal and insane. Yes, the writing is cheesy as hell, but considering the game's origins, I'd say it kind of goes along with it's extremely eclectic style and overtone. I really dig the screens when you die, the color bar test thing and then a little loading screen. My buddy imported the PAL version of this and it really is completely different, instead of blood, black pixels swarm out of the enemy. The blood is key. I am looking forward to playing more. The way you kill the first boss is a level of brutality rarely seen in games these days.
