    So im thinking of getting this game later on but I still am a bit skeptical. Im very picky in my games and so far most of my games are rated atleast 90 on metacritic. Except for a few cheap games I bought cuz I didn't really care. Anyway, reviews has been pretty decent so far, but still a small amount of them. Anyway I was reading comments on metacritic and someone said:

    Now guys, don't go flaming this guy. I just want to know if IN YOUR OPINION, does this guy have a point at all? Because the things he said were some of the things im skeptical about. Im worried that the only fun part maybe killing people and THATS IT. Im asking for complete unbiased opinions... Are the jobs tedious/repetitive? Is fighting easy? Is their nothing really fun to do while in the city?

    I prefer people who own mostly great Wii games to answer this, because there's some people who think Mario Party 8 and Red Steel is fun. I don't find those people very credible :/

    Okay fire away! I'll be back in the afternoon, maybe around 1pm or 2pm, depending when I wake up :p

    Well, I can't comment on the combat, but everything else in that player review was pretty much spot on with the IGN review, the Gamespy review, and another along with tons of player reviews. Here are some objective facts:

    1. There are tons of graphical glitches, framerate issues, collision problems, terrible pop-in, etc. (Strangely enough, that player seemed to ignore this stuff).

    2. The city is pretty much empty with almost nothing to do in it. Add in all of the graphical issues and you've got a real mess.

    3. Now, this one is a bit less objective, but most people seem to report that the "odd jobs" do get tedious and repetitive.


    I'd say rent it and check it out for yourself. You might be able to overlook all of the many shortcomings and get into the story, which is supposed to be good, as well as the combat.

    Again, I don't recall reading it had tons of graphical glitches and framerate issues anywhere. More exaggerations..

    City has nothing really to do?..alright but you can drive around to stores and shops still (Sword Upgrade shop, Gym etc.) and find clothes in dumpsters and what not. So its not completely empty.

    But for a game to have "tons" of graphical issues and framerate issues..critics and users alike seem to feel the same way about the game giving it a score of 8.8 respectively. Meaning this game is good.

    I plan on buying this game, but need to wait for the delay here in Canada as they had to put French in the manuals or something. :lol: Jan 31st is when it is available here.

    i bought this game on launch
    and it's still an amazing game to me.
    it seems like it will be pretty short. but it's still a game i'm glad i have in my collection. Variety is the key!
    and there is definately no game out there like No More Heroes
    I hope the sequel comes soon!

    The guy doesn't even talk about a huge part of the game, fighting the assassins. I read comments about how insanely difficult boss battles can be and then see this noob complain about the "easiness" of the henchmen. How far in the game did this guy even go?

    Try the game yourself though. No More Heroes isn't going to appeal to everyone and this is an example of the game not being to appeal to him. Personally, I have seen nothing but praise for the gameplay and most people don't care about the technical issues.

    I beg to differ. I will agree that graphics that are less than beautiful are certainly acceptable when the gameplay is great (e.g., the Wii can be just as fun as the 360 even though the graphics are lower quality). But graphical issues that are indicitive of lack of polish are not. These problems (i.e., unstable framerate, horrible pop-in, collision problems, etc.) are abound in NMH.

    This is not a simple case of less than stellar graphics.

    How many people actually own the game? Seems like most people have just read reviews despite all the hype that was around here.

    I know CantGetaWii said its delayed in canada so he's waiting.

    But everyone else seems to point out what they have read. Ive read them too, but I want to know about personal experience.

    Also some people say SMG isnt that easy, same with RE4 and I found SMG to be extremely easy and RE4 to be moderately easy.

    NMH is a great game, I'm only about 2 hours into it and I have enjoyed every minute of it. As for the framerate? Who cares, its not a 360 or PS3, if the game was on those systems I could see it being a problem. The graphics are unique and make the game great. The bosses get tougher as the game progesses too. I'm currently ranked 8th, and that chic was tough to beat! She killed me 2 times before I mastered her.

    Graphics aren't everything to me but smooth game play is.

    I mean if the frame rate issues are frequent and get in way of game it would put be off deeply.

    if you didnt know, framerates are a part of graphics. i believe this game runs at 60 frames and it loojks like it rarely goes down that much.

    60fps is what games usually aim for. You will ge smooth gameplay

    For anyone who thinks framerate means nothing, it does :/ You would be suprised how much of a different it makes.

    It really has nothing to do with Wii/360/PS3, framerate always matters. But as long as its not that bad it doesn't usually brother people.

    I know what fr is and yes even though the rate is high it could still struggle at that and slip up a lot.
    --
    I haven't seen much real game play from the game that went retail so I haven't seen the frame rate.
    --
    Side note; anyone know what engine this is running on?

    what do you mean by what engine. is there a name or something? also 30 frames per second is also pretty common, i doubt no more heroes drops all the way under 30, so it shouldnt be that bad.

    Regardless of FR issues could happen and slip ups.

    Games are made upon an engine so yes there is a name. An example is the Havoc engine in 'logans shadow' on the psp.
