So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

What do these ratings mean?

The Good: Great story, lots of gore, great graphical style, awesome combat

The Bad: Not for the kiddies, graphics are a bit dated, Santa Destroy isn't fun

One trailer of NMH and I was interest...and that's rare for me. NMH has a wonderful story where you play as Travis Touchdown who is a contracted assassin fighting his way to number one. You're boss (who is a sexy blond) drives you forward through the whole list and then there is an awesome plot twist at the end that will keep you hooked. The game is all about the fighting though. You have an awesome beam katana that you can hack and slash people with but hitting the A button and locking (and blocking) with the Z button. when your opponents life is all the way down an arrow pops up on screen telling you which way to swing the Wiimote and either slicing his head off with tons of blood spewing or even slicing him in half. The boss fights are all awesome and unique and they are the kind of boss fights that are memorable. They are fast, and you feel like you're really playing a cool anime samurai cartoon. In between these "Ranked Battles" you can get jobs to earn money to pay the entry fee such as collecting coconuts to wiping graffiti off walls. Then after you do a job you can play in assassination missions to earn even more money. There are also customization options such as dressing Travis up to making new weapons. The only issue here is there isn't a lot of options I mean like VERY LITTLE here. You can also cruise around the town Santa Destroy but it's not very fun. It's lifeless dull and boring really. NMH is a great rental running in at about ten hours and a great buy if it were $30 or under. Pick up NMH because it's one of the best Wii games ever made.
