CVG reviews No More Heroes: 'you have never played anything like this before'

Violence, sex, things to see, things to collect, spectacular graphics and even better sound, a sense of humour, a sense of purpose, an insane logic running through every fibre - and enough swearing to get your telly banned by the BBFC. Killer7 creator Suda51 is back, all right.

No More Heroes is always true to its own perverse logic - always proud to be a videogame, always stealing liberally from the best of other genres, always loud and obnoxious. The mishmash of visual styles, music and the world's most flamboyant dialogue has no comparison to anything else; it's impossible to put the game in a box, except to say that it is unquestionably, undeniably, unequivocally No More Heroes, and you have never played anything like this before.

Score: 9.4/10

Dang this guy fell in love with the game. Will be fun once released ^^

Night4ll4041d ago

I wonder how this game will do in the U.S. I hope it sells well... I for one will be picking it up.

ChickeyCantor4041d ago

Why the FACK did anyone disagree with you ? these damn kids need to GTFO.

In the beginning i though tthis would be a cheap GTA rip-off but after some video's and gameplay clips im actually hyped about it =D

Ashta4041d ago

Yeah, NoMoreHeroes has some amazing visuals man.

Made by the same man (Suda 51 I believe he likes to be called) who made Killer7. A very obscure and alternative way of gaming animation!...kinda gives it that graphics novel feel but in a totally more kickass way.

Check out some of the videos on Gametrailers for it. too bad the game didn't release very well in Japan....

Maybe we'll see a PS2 or next-gen port sometime in the future but since it's based AROUND the motion control of the Wii I doubt it. Still, if you have a Wii you owe it to yourself to check this game out. Hell, I don't even OWN a Wii and I think this game looks awesome.

Charlie26884041d ago

I think he is referring to the art style for example Killer 7 and Shin Megami Tensai Nocturne used this sort of over simplified cellshade graphics with flat colors that instead of making the game look bad it made for a SPECTACULAR effect XD

but yeah if you haven't played any of those game before this sort of over simplified cellshaded effect might be kind of shocking and lead you to believe it has crappy visuals, you have to play it and get used to it to understand its awesomeness (lol)(it happened to me)

Revlis914041d ago

Japanese ppl only like games like wii fit lol , I hope it will sell well in the Us and Europe(I want blood damnit!).

the game is good, but you know its going to flop in sales. thats what gets me so angry about the wii, thats Why i belive that its a fad. i know most wii fans here are going to say no, but seriously the hardcore fans on the wii count only a small percentage of the wii's install base compared to the large percentage of casual gamers that own a wii, they arent going to buiy this game. all they are going to buy is the fad of the wiifit, the wii sports and those casual games. you can disagree with me if you want, all you have to do is talk to 3rd party devs, they will tell you the same, they dont know what the hell they are going to do with the wii.

Metroid sold enough,
so did mario,
so did zelda,
so will this game.

( yes mostly first party titles right? like casual gamers buy freaking metroid or zelda =/)

There are enough buyers, Wii games dont need to sell like PS3 or 360 games to make a profit.

pwnsause4041d ago

those are first party games you just mentioned, 3rd party companies dont make money off of 1st party games. the game could sell at least 1 million, but thats not what 3rd party companies want, they want a hit, something that sells 5 million copies, not 1 million.

Actually the Wii has selling more software this holiday season than the other consoles. Sure they are more Wiis owned, but a good sign for Nintendo.

I think there are some people on here that's just a tad bitter about all of the success of Nintendo and the Wii.

They would have never guesses that the Wii would be doing so well at this point.

I say let it go, it's just a video game console.

KeiZka4041d ago (Edited 4041d ago )

Strangely enough, there was more Wii software sold than Sony software combined within last month... I strongly doubt all of those sales were only first party games.

EDIT: Added sold. Me being a dumb **** forgot it out.

kobonline4041d ago (Edited 4041d ago )

People need to realize that Wii software sales are steadily growing.

Kind of like PS2 software sales starting growing as the user base had grown.

Also people need to realize that the PS2 user base had a large percentage of these so called "casual gamers".

It's those type of people that probably will not get a PS3/Xbox360 and will by default be interested in getting the Wii.

"the game is good, but you know its going to flop in sales. thats what gets me so angry about the wii, thats Why i belive that its a fad."

I'm not ready to concede the fact that 3rd party software won't sell on the Wii (it's significantly outselling PS3 third party software at the moment) but even if 3rd party sales aren't strong it doesn't mean the Wii will flop.

Hell, look at the best selling games for the Nintendo DS:

1 Nintendo 16.39m Nintendogs
2 Nintendo 12.86m Pokemon Diamond / Pearl
3 Nintendo 12.32m New Super Mario Bros
4 Nintendo 10.32m Brain Training
5 Nintendo 8.75m Mario Kart DS
6 Nintendo 8.55m Animal Crossing: Wild World
7 Nintendo 8.39m More Brain Training
8 Nintendo 5.46m Super Mario 64 DS
9 Nintendo 4.42m Big Brain Academy
10 Nintendo 3.10m Pokemon Mysterious Dungeon

All first party, casual gaming titles, and the DS is the fastest selling system in history.
