As much as I loved No More Heroes 1, I found this game to be a complete disappointment. When No More Heroes 1 originally came out, it offered a Star Wars Light-Saber-like control, way before The Force Unleashed came out. The motorcycle driving was a great deal of fun, and the side missions weren't ALL 80's style video games.
Aside from the AWFUL tilt which makes this came frustratingly difficult when doing the platforming missions, the controls are sluggish and almost impossible to use when playing the 80's style games.
The 80's style games are my biggest gripe with this game. These games are STUPID. Aside from 1 or 2 of them, I really didn't like to play any of them. Also, the fact that playing these awful games was the only way to increase your strength and health in this game made the game even more STUPID.
The combat in the game is more of the same from the last game. There is a good amount of blood and Anime-Style killing, but it does get old. The fact that there are no more upgrades to the weapons and so few of them took a reat deal away from the game.
I think I reached my wit's end when during the super-mega-Japanese-style robot battle, one of the attack was called "Strawberry Shortcake!!!" Like I said...Stupid.
I HATED this game, and thank God for Gamefly in the fact that I only rented it.
