With great combat and dull city navigation, this game inspires a love/hate relationship
On the down side, riding around the city on your funky motorcycle is extremely clunky and the little map is almost completely useless. The blockiness works fine for the menus but should not have been used for the map as well. These sequences are so bad that they're just no fun at all and you'll find yourself wanting to get from one place to another as quickly as possible just to get to another fighting sequence. Also, the stupid little jobs you have to take to make money in between the assassination and combat missions (coconut collecting, lawn mowing, etc) play almost as bad as the bike riding and are really boring.
No More Heroes is definitely a game that you should rent before you buy. To play this game is to repeatedly go back and forth between being really into in and being really not into it. If you are able to put up with the awful parts, you will have some wickedly mature fun with the sword fighting and watching the storyline.
