If you played the first game, then you know what kind of series No More Heroes is. Ironic humour directed towards Japanese pop-culture fanatics, with a lovable but noticeably thick-headed protagonist.
It's great to see that the developers pin-pointed the problems with the first game, and improved upon them. For starters, removing the sandbox aspect. This, in the first game, was just a waste of time, driving around an empty city.
The game feel in this is nicer too, with more fluid combat, and a polished animation style.
The difficulty on this game is also nice, where on the hardest difficulty, that last boss WILL give you grief. And you'll love every second.
While the game is presented completely comedically and ironically, you find yourself enthralled in Travis' story, and we are all beggingg to find out what happens next.

One problem I had with the game was where you started out at rank 50, and you expected an epic quest to rank 1, but you end up skipping about 30 ranks anyway, with bosses that apparently incorporate about 25 assassins, and other cheap excuses to cut out chunks of gameplay.

No More Heroes 2 expanded where the first one fell short. You can't free roam anymore instead you have to select which places you want to go to and the game will instantly take you there. They still have mini-games for just about everything but there are more to choose from so that makes it a little more bearable.
Basically because you had been out of the UAA for so long you have dropped in ranking and now have to fight your way back up to the top. It's a fun game and I recommend playing through it.

The No More Heroes games are insanely fun and quirky and they aren't afraid to make fun of themselves or some of the common tropes in otaku culture. It also feels incredibly good to mow down enemies and face really unique bosses. This game is also vastly improved over the original, with fast travel and mini games that have a better old-school feel to it. It's almost hard to go back to the first game after you're used to the improvements of the second.

No More Heroes 2 was the bomb! It is perfect for the person out there with crude personality as the game is filled with gigantic bouncing boobs, short skirts, out of this world guns, and of course you take a crap to save the game. I beat this game in about 6 hours on mild mode. I loved the different light sabers (lol) you can unlock or buy. You also get to switch up main characters a couple times. Great game.

As a huge fan of No More Heroes, this was huge disappointment. The lack of an overworld and the saminess of the mini games took away some of the most silly and enjoyable elements of the series, and the bosses weren't nearly as dynamic. Platforming as Shinobu is horrendous, and the game promises tons of bosses but does away with the vast majority via plot contrivances. Stick with No More Heroes.

The Good
Remarkably fun and interactive combat system Excellent use of motion controls
Plenty of side jobs and minigames to keep you entertained
Story, characters, and world ooze with style Some of the best graphics on the Wii.

The Bad
Camera troubles ruin the fun
Assassins aren't very well fleshed out.

This is a sequel to the first No More Heroes and for one, all the fighting that you do is great. The graphics are different from other games and like the style they put the game in. It fits the overall feel to the game. Some of the fights are hard and throughout the game you can play as Henry and Shinobu for a few fights.

Pretty nice I got the game the day it released. Dusted off the wii and started playing,at an instant I loved it. Not only did Suda throw in a parody of Cloud (FF7), but he introduced the game very well for those who haven't played the first (Should buy it if you haven't played it).

Good game but not that dynamic, its just a battle game with slight movements. I enjoy the use of the Wii controller like a weapon, it really makes up for the games lack of adventure
