This game is pretty damn flawless compared to the original in the fact that a faster, more efficient system is placed in order to reach shops, missions and mini-games. The script is strong and hilarious like the original.
The biggest improvement is the plethora of mini games that drag you into the arcade classic era with the 8 bit appearance; these mini games can be a collection of time consuming games in their own right.
This game gets 4/5 because the new camera system is a little delayed and not as forthright like the first game, and the story/character boss fights are a little lacklustre if only ever in the slightest. Playing as *SPOILER* shinobu was frustrating like hell because of the poorly made jump system.

TL;DR
Much better mini-games, efficient menu, strong combat improvement. Lacks strong charismatic bosses compared to the first game, shinobu is annoying, and slightly delayed camera.

No More Heroes was a breath of fresh air, its a throwback to retro gaming in a modern punk style. Featuring a series of mini games, linear fighting and the element where the game comes into its own is the boss fights. These are where this game excels. The characters are inventive, creative and extremely fun to pit your wits against. This second installment is pretty much more of the same. The world of Travis Touchdown is vibrant and exciting with Santa Destroy being an ideal location for a mini vacation. The controls are fun and intuitive with plenty of slicing and dicing carried out by the player to really help immerse you in the game. Overall I highly recommend this game, although it might be more for the long running hardcore gamer who will appreciate the throwback and retro style and mini games.

The first No More Heroes is quite easily the best game on the wii for my money, and a bit of a cult classic. Anything Suda 51 and Grasshopper put their names to tends to be an otherworldly hyper-stylized blast of sugar coated oddness unlike anything else out there, and this holds up that tradition well.

The open world from the first game is gone though, which I found made the game slightly less absorbing, and the boss fights could sometimes feel a little less refined, leading to occasionally frustrating slug fests.

Still way more interesting than almost anything else out there, and a must-play for anyone who loves that Grasshopper flavour (and everyone should, seriously they're the most interesting studio working in games today).

Like most things from Suda51, this game is one that you will either really like and appreciate or you will dislike and wonder why you wasted time with it.
I personally loved the game...took everything great from the first game and removed the annoying open areas...thus streamlining the gameplay and making it feel less like a grind-fest.
If you don't know anything about this game or Suda51, I'd recommend looking up trailers/videos of this game and the first game and maybe even other games from Suda51 to judge whether you would find this game to your liking.

The game is very funny and cool just like the first one. You can't drive at will in the town with the bike which is a good thing, you just pick your destination. The jobs are very funny and will help you earn some money. But in the end, I find the first NMH more entertaining, especially the story. Some of the bosses in NMH 2 seemed to be there just to fill a gap, there is a lack of originalit.Finally, the end is not as better as in NMH 1, but the game has still the spirit of NMH, so if you have liked the first one, you should definitely buy it !

i brought no more heroes and loved the boss battles, but a lot of the other features let it down. in NMH2 most of these issues are fixed, making this game simply amazing!
the boss battles are fun and unique, the minigames are interesting an enjoyable, and the plot is decent. the only small problems are it does get a little repetitive at some points. also this game has some of the WORST jump and platforming mechanics i have ever seen.

Words cannot explain how much I love this game!! I tend to stick to RPGs but wanted something a little more senseless and violent. I'd never heard of this game but I wanted what was basically Devil May Cry but for the Wii. This game is a million times better! Great characters, funny dialogue and fantastic gameplay. For a tenner - BUY THIS GAME! Seriously. If you like blood and gore and comedy this is amazing. Love, love, LOVE it!

Even if you haven't played the first this game is definitely worth picking up.
It's bloody and has overwhelmingly fun combat in. The new beam katanas are pretty awesome and lets you choose a sort of fighting style unlike the first one.

If you have a Wii or Wii U this is worth getting.

No More Heroes 2 is not quite the balls-to-the-wall action game it appears to be. It may very well be exciting and brash, hyperactive and garishly unsubtle on the outside, but underneath lies a sad, meaningful story and a devastatingly observant satire. It's gameplay is that of a fun but shallow hack and slash, the minigames are fun but ultimately shallow retro games, and it's boos battles are samey but thrilling encounters.

It is, however, the most enigmatic and complex game I've ever played. This game is deep, in philosophy and in allegory, and it is not obvious in anyway. I wouldn't be surprised if you finished this game without having a clue what it is actually about. Because it's a very carefully made little thing. Like an art house film, honestly, a lot of people won't get it. If you reckon you';re up for a lot of thought on something so seemingly trivial, go for it. You won't regret it.

Very good game that will give you many hours of fun.
Good cartoon-ish graphics, intriguing plot, numerous different situations and enemies and funny mini-side-game, will completely deserve the low prices this game can be purchased for today.
