Travis Touchdown is the name, slicing and dicing is his game. No More Heroes is a stylishly violent combat game in the sardonic spirit of films like Kill Bill. Players must take out ten rival killers, with names like Death Metal, Dr. Peace, and Destroyman, and their hellish henchmen before they "intercept" Touchdown. While Touchdown's primary attack is an upgradeable beam katana blade, he is also schooled in grapple moves made popular by professional wrestling. In between assassination attempts, players can relax in Touchdown's interactive motel room (where he can play with his cat, watch wrestling videos, or save progress by sitting on the toilet).
Players can also work a number of side jobs to earn extra spending money. Mowing lawns, collecting coconuts, and other offbeat occupations are available as mini-games, each taking advantage of the system's motion-sensing controls. The action takes place within the fictitious city of Santa Destroy, home to a video store, baseball stadium, burger joint, gym, pizza parlor, and other hangouts. Players will travel from target to target on a massive motorcycle that can perform wheelies, jumps, and pavement-scorching turbo boosts. Directed by Goichi Suda, best known for Killer7 on GameCube and Contact on DS, the M-rated No More Heroes features a distinctive cel-shaded visual style. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
