Flat 5; worth the rental, not for purchase...

OK, I've played this games for approximately 4 - 5 hours each of the last three days I've had it. I remember the first No More Heros game, and that was by far a much better game.

Movement in this sequel is nothing like the original game. The original was way smoother. There are some koo things about this game; likehow you can do some old school farming for cash to buy your power ups and weapons, but you're playing 2-bit video games designed from the 80s to get paid!!! WTH! I think the creator was just getting over on us with this game. I've beaten it on two levels of difficulty, and I'm not sure I want to waste my time going for any others. It was fun, at its moments, but this game did more to turn me off (especially in the beginning of the game) than keep me interested. I was really only happy I rented it instead of buying it.

Don't get me wrong - if you want to learn how this game is different than the first, be my guest. But be warned that all you'll be doing is learning a new strategy for each boss (if thats what you should call them...) and getting more frustrated with the simple things. I tell you,. the creator had it in his mind to teach you "how to adapt and strategize," not play a good game...

No more heroes 2 was a disapointment compared to the origanal in my opinion. Realy now, the people who made NMH did a great job. I mean that they made one of the best action and gore games I have even seen on the wii. Don't get me wrong ,NMH2 was a good game but could have been better in the way it was put together and a few details were lacking. I don't want to give away any details away so i'll leave it at that. to realy get a feel for what i'm talking about, play NMH 1 and 2 then compare for yourself. Till the next game. A1

I liked the first one so i tried out this one and came out a lil disappointed. The game had alot of flaws, almost to many to name and was extremely short. I recieved the game and beat it the same day. Last boss was extremely annoying beyond belief, and besides him seemed like 2nd boss u fight is the hardest out of the bunch which made no sense to me.

all and all game gets a 6 and was fun for the day, if it took any longer the rating would go down further.
