    This one coming from 4colorrebellon-

    Wow, another High Score. This one yet again quieting the skeptics. And over 18 hours of gameplay? Sound pretty good to me!

    I think I can officially say it:

    Everyone MUST buy this game!

    Thanks for posting this, great find. I really hope this game sells well, it will probably deserve a sequel.

    And WHO exactly is this reviewer? Just another nobody like the other "reviews" for this game. I'll wait for the real reviews.

    I'm also suprised he/she gave it such a high score considering half the review was comprised of complaints about the game.

    For people not keeping track, No More Heroes had now received an 8.5, 9.4, 9, and 9. Which would average out to be the 4 best reviewed game so far on Wii. (Behind Galaxy, Zelda, and Resident Evil)

    @AtomHeart- If you actually went to 4cr as much as I do, you'd understand that this guy knows his stuff. He's a very fair reviewer and I respect his judgment.

    And how can you say his review was half complaints? There was like 2 paragraphs that can really only be referred to has semi complaints at best.

    And the other 3 reviews are highly respected (Well at least highly respected to normal people. They apparently aren't up to your standards) as well. I don't see why you just don't accept this game is good.

    Because based on what is actually written in the reviews, the game appears to be objectively poor in quality--poor graphics, repetitive gameplay, boring overworld, etc. The previews from the real websites are much less optimistic than what has been stated in the "reviews" (LOL) thus far.

    I'll wait for the real reviews, and I can almost guarantee that they'll be FAR less optimistic. I'm betting on high 7's or at the most low 8's from IGN and low 7's or even high 6's from Gamespot. Those are the only two review sites worth the salt.

    Show me where, in any of these reviews, is says the game is repetitive and boring. In fact, this review that I just posted says the exact opposite. It says that each Assassination feels new and fun. And IGN has basically confirmed around a 8.5. As a quote from Matt C. states "It's a great game. But not 9.0 great."

    And I'm gonna be honest here: I don't trust what Gamespot has to say about Nintendo (And it's getting to the point that I don't trust their reviews for any company) games. They often score too low or too high and it really is unfair. I do trust IGN however.

    Exactly. Just another flaw. The game doesn't even appear to have much motion control.

    He preferred it. He went as far as to say it was excellent. I don't see something that someone calls "excellent" being a flaw.

    Here, re-read this paragraph:


    As far as Gamespot, I'll trust the reviews of an established, respected website over all of the crap that has reviewed NMH thus far.

    i just dont see why his beam katana couldnt be used like the sword in zelda for wii.

    EDIT: Atomheart, i wouldnt go to gamespot for reviews if i were you. no matter what game you give them they will give a low score say why but in a very vague way. IGN on the other hand is a little more realistic when it comes to videogame reviews, they dont live in a dream world where videogames are made to perfection. also IGN explains in more detail than gamespot does. eventhough i would prefer more motion control i think this game seems very good.

    I guess part of that paragraph would qualify as one of those semi complaints. But what game doesn't get boring when going from place to place? I hated doing that in GTA, Assassin's Creed, Mass Effect, and such. It's always boring to do those such things. But, he still says the actual assassinations are fun and not repetitive. (Which is all that really matters)

    And I don't respect Gamestop because of its recent history. And I know I'm not the only one.

    You know what, I prefer these reviews. You get the perspective from a person, not a highly paid journalist for a big big site.

    I do trust the likes of IGN and Gametrailers, with Gametrailers being my main review source. Gamespot I have always been weary about and recent history declared I do not trust their reviews anymore.

    Wow... Atomheart just wants this game to fail. Even if the general consensus is a 9.0 overall.. Oh well, some people are haters..

    Thanks for the review nic7.
    Game was being bought by me anyways, others should do the same.

    @Atomheart

    Notice how he said its repetitive but doesn't take much away from the game?
    Yeah, it means its not as bad or as repetitive as you like to imagine. And to the motion controls comment. If you have read other things and knew about the game, he wanted to tune the waggling of the remote as he thought it would be tiresome and overall not fun. Surely with you being the "repetitive detective" you aren't too disappointed about that news. There is other motion controls in the game, with his bike etc.

    Just stop hating on the game dude, we know how you feel.
    Your proving nothing with comments except your lack of knowledge of the game.
