    The real triumph of Suda 51’s surreal, occasionally obscene romp is that behind all the cynicism, satire, and gory ultraviolence lies a true joy of creation that is too rarely seen in gaming. In playing No More Heroes, one gets the impression that the development team truly enjoyed making it, that no idea was thrown out for being too ridiculous or far-fetched, and that it is intensely aware of its own absurdity at all times. The excellent fourth-wall shattering ending is proof enough of that.

    There can be no more complaints from gamers looking for a unique experience when gems such as this are out there to be sampled. Miss it at your peril.

    No More Heroes easily ranks among the Wii's finest titles, busting a bunch of myths along the way. You say sword-based combat peaked with Twilight Princess? Wait until you slice a suit-wearing crony in half. The Wii can't do mature games? This game does it without the dark dreariness of just about every other violence-laden M-rated title. It could use a bit less filler, but No More Heroes is still a fine fight from the first blow to the last strike.
  4. Simple, stupid, silly, and easily the most fun I’ve had on the console.
  5. It’s too bad the open-world element wasn’t fleshed out more, because this game could have been spectacular. NMH is the Wii’s first third-party classic and anyone with a Wii should seek it out.
  6. 80
    Would have scored higher if the PAL version had been the complete version, but still a must buy for any 18+ year old Wii owners with half a brain cell.
  7. It’s a unique take on open world play, and its almost nihilistic fixation on violence for the sake of violence has a satirical and darkly comedic edge. Unfortunately, the repetition and lack of substance behind the flash left me cold.

    Not just one of the best games on Wii but possibly my favourite game of this generation and one of my all time favourite games! No More HeroesNot just one of the best games on Wii but possibly my favourite game of this generation and one of my all time favourite games! No More Heroes is a fantastic game that is fun engaging and hilarious to play, The sense of humour is fantastic Travis is great character and has some genuinely funny voice work.

    On the topic of voice work this game has one of the most high profile voice cast i've ever seen! Robin Atkin Downes lends his voice to Travis Touchdown and he is utterly fantastic! Quinton Flynn delivers the voice for Henry and puts in a stellar performance as he always does! If you own a Wii or even if you've just bought your self a shiny new Wii U do yourself a favour and buy this game! also buy it's sequel to because that is arguable the better game though i'd have to replay it again to say for certain.

    Fun and energenic. The button map out is perfect fit and all the side-jobs, missions, and apparel you can buy is great. We can only hope for a sequel

    Simply Fantastic!, the reason I did not rate it 10 is because Santa Destroy is almost empty, but the rest is perfect.

    All in all, a horrible game, aside from the battle system, which is average.

    There is no real story or theme to this game. It's completely random. The city was poorly programmed with horrible physics, and an non-interactive environment. There are only ten missions, and in between them the player is forced to do tedious side quests such as mowing lawns and picking fruit off of trees. After beating the game, there is nothing else to do aside from playing it again. There is no multiplayer, no side modes. Nothing to increase the game's replay value.
