Game Informer reviews No More Heroes 6/10

From Game Informer: "No More Heroes certainly gets a nod for being wildly different. 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."

Game informer gave this game a 6 out of 10? Yet X-play gave it a 5 out of 5! Who do i believe, X-play or Game Informer?

lol yeah i'm getting confused too...but i already ordered it friday since my Wii has been dormant since i beat Mario Galaxy, I'm sure it's a cool game that you either love or hate

It won't after this score gets added. All Wii owners are looking for a game to play until Brawl comes out. And we were hoping No More Heroes would be the beginning of good 3rd party support. While the game is a lot better than most 3rd party games on the Wii it still isn't a great game. It's a good game, but not a great one.

Now it's 85/100

I dont trust gamerankings. They tend to be so nintendo biased. I played galaxy on three different occasions and told myself that I just had to get into it, it dissapointed me. This game failed to draw me in like the mario's of yore. Mario 64 was the last mario game that took my breath away... But regardless I played no more heroes as well and it just didnt do anything for me. For me the motion control is becoming a tired concept. I guess the wii just doesnt appeal to me, trust me I tried really hard to like it. It really cause me to furrow my brow the first time I recharged my sword, what where they thinking when they created an animation so distasteful. I'm sorry but nintendo alienated themselves from the core demographic of the video game market even more...

Eh...I don't know about a gaming site that averages out every review on the internet biased, if you don't trust gamerankings then you can't really trust anyone's review. I would say though I trust gamerankings more than metacritic. There's some sites that give letter grades and metacritic thinks a B is 75%

This was a fun one for sure. If you only do the fighting to get money you'll get bored but there are 10 part-time jobs out there. Fun mix of everything from wiping away graffiti and clearing the beach from mines and mowing the law.

Boss fights are all their own characters and the story is pretty sweet with all twists and turns. Excellent purchase for Wii owners.

Not like it needs it or anything but it seems as if this game was suppose to be a game to drive people out to buy a Wii.

With the way they express their opinion in that little 4 paragraph "review", it makes me doubt that they even played the game all the way through. It seems they judged it more from some sort of "Moral" standpoint than anything else. NMH is an awesome game imo. Much better than the grade they gave it.
