Bloody Fun

No More Heroes is a flawed game; I'll just get that out of the way. The graphics and gameplay could be a bit more polished, the story could be a bit more fleshed out, and Santa Destroy, the brilliantly named setting of No More Heroes, could be a bit more alive and interesting. That said, the game is simply put, sick and horrible fun.

After my first decapitation and mutilation, I was hooked. Suda 51 managed to tastefully use the Wii-mote waggle (and by tasteful, I mean jerking it violently in a suggestive manner to recharge your beam sword) allowing for smooth executions and satisfying kills. The boss fights are challenging and unique, if not a bit repetitive, and your effort is often rewarded with classic cut-scenes that will blow your mind, not to mention provide incentive to push on to the next chapter. Considering its now bargain-bin price of $20, it is pretty easy to recommend this game.

    The Epitome of Style 0

    Style is something that not many games have these days. Most popular games feature a space-marine with a covered face and less personality than a wad of paper running around and, what else! Shooting aliens. None of them can really boast anything "stylish". All they can boast is... well... Brown and grey. From the sea of samey, blood-soaked shooters emerges No More Heroes. Sure, while it is arguably the most blood-soaked game of 2008, it strays from everything we believe a game to be. It laughs i...
