No More Heroes (Wii)

Balls to the wall action, insane amounts of violence, and sexual overtones that are not really overtones.  All these things are phrases that I would probably not describe this game because it doesn't give an extreme enough description.  Let's get this out in the open, this is one of the most tedious games I've played in a long time.  The only saving grace is the boss battles.  Those are more than worth purchasing the game for.

The time between boss battles is spent doing jobs, brawling for cash, and fighting cannon fodder.  Sure this get tedious, actually it is always tedious.  You do level up some skills with money and finding balls and things but once you have certain moves and the best beamsaber, the cannon fodder becomes even more tedious.

Like I said earlier, the boss battles are the best parts.  In fact, if you ignore the other parts of the game...these are easily the best and most well-designed boss battles I've ever fought.  Each boss has a pattern and a set of times when you can hit them and when you should be wary.  Learning this will help you be successful.

I also have to say, this has the craziest writing in any game I've played in a long time.  Everything is insane and just to the point of insanity that it is beyond believable.  The sexual overtones add some humor to the game but at times it can get a little rough if you aren't into that.

All in all, this is a good game and should be part of anybodies Wii collection.  The action is great if you can look past the terrible pieces that are between bosses.  Plus, what game lets you play with a cat and it does nothing to effect the game at all?  Only a handful.
