No More Heroes is more punk than the Pistols

We've played it. It's anarchy.

The script doesn't care either

This is where No More Heroes really flicksup two fingersat videogame convention. It’s not just the Tarantino-like level of NSFW language, (though you’ve got to love any game in which your character’s first line is “F*ckhead!” as he crashes his bike through two bad guys) it’s more the way in which the game’s personality explodes through all of the dialogue and plot points by subverting or just plain ignoring all the old clichés of character and story you’ve seen a million times before.


Long-time GR+ writer Dave has been gaming with immense dedication ever since he failed dismally at some '80s arcade racer on a childhood day at the seaside (due to being too small to reach the controls without help). These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
