Travis is back!

That's right Travis Touchdown is back, this time with a more streamlined game...well mostly. Many good things about the first game remain, Suda 51's style and quirky humor, wildly over the time characters and action, and a few beam katanas that all handle differently. But it also kept many frustrating things, such as annoying camera angles, and controls that feel just a bit wonky.

Though there are lots of improvements made to this game to make the pace of the story move a lot quicker, such as the elimination of the open world map, it added a few things that felt pointless and rushed, such as pretty much ANYTHING on the motorcycle. Just like it's predecessor, this is more a niche game. Some will love it, others will play the first 5 minutes and immediately despise it. This is a game that really should be played with an open mind.

And any new comer to the series be forewarned, this game is defiantly not for kids, or anyone offended by strong and vulgar language, violence and gore, or strong sexual themes.

Pros:
-Wild storyline complete with giant robots and ninja girls
-Violent and messy for those that want their Wii for more than throwing baseballs and drive go carts
-Gives us more of Travis Touchdown and gang

Cons
-Boring moments of literally doing nothing for 30 seconds
-Camera makes Shinobu's jumps sometimes hard to make
-Very disappointing end

Rent it to check it out, however buy it if you like the style, help give developers the encouragement to make more creative and story driven games for the Wii.

Pros

Fun and simple game play.
Great boss fights
Fun 8 bit mini games for collecting money and improving character
Uses vulgarity in a funny and over the top way.

Cons
Horrible camera
Some say graphics are great but I feel they are average
Pretty short

I have to say, if it was not for the camera this would have been an outstanding and fun game. The mature rating was used for more of an over the top comedic affect (taking a dump to save the game, for one). This is way more preferable than being vulgar just to be vulgar. Definitely worth a rent for anyone.

As an adult that plays the wii it is nice to see some games catered towards an older crowd. This game is bloody, vulgar, and has a high sexual content. The mini games are kinda stupid but they reminded me of playing the original NES and were pleasantly addicting. Your typical happy slashing game. The bosses were easy enough with a few being tougher than others. Overall a pleasant play in a system dominated by childrens titles.
