Review: No More Heroes 2 Desperate Struggle


No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle is one of those games that comes every once in a while that sets the bar for what games could be. Sadistic hack and slash bloody adventures with sarcastic one liners that would make Sam Raimi proud.

If you played the first game you know that the game is set in a fictional city in California, called Santa Destroy, where you follow the exploits of Travis Touchdown, an anime nerd turned top assassin in the UAA. The UAA, (United Assassins Association), is comprised of deadly killers, slicing, shooting, and detonating their way to higher ranks to determine who the the best assassin is in the world.

However, Desperate Struggle picks up three years after the exploits of the first game, where Travis has become somewhat of legend. It seems that Travis was the only one in the history of the UAA to just make it to the top and walk away like it was nothing. Some call him the “No More Hero”, many consider him the “Crownless King”, and well others want him dead.
