Why you can trust GamesRadar+ Our experts review games, movies and tech over countless hours, so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about our reviews policy.

Violence, sex, things to see, things to collect, spectacular graphics and even better sound, a sense of humour, a sense of purpose, an insane logic running through every fiber- and enough swearing to get your TV banned by the authorities. Killer7 creator Suda51 is back, all right.

Our hero, Travis Touchdown, is a motel-dwelling, action figure-collecting, anime-obsessing gamer who wins a lightsaber in an online auction and sets off on a mission to become the world’s number one hitman so he can get the girls. From minute one, you’re cast into the thick of the action, where a whistle-stop cutscene brings you up to date on the story so far and a click of the A button drops you straight on the front doorstep of Hitman #10.

DescriptionThis action-driven, lightsaber-whirling game steals liberally from the best of other genres. Even with its less-than-perfect presentation, it works wonderfully on the Wii.
