    Nobody Saves the World is not a masterpiece, but its simplicity manages to easily win you over - even with some small flaws, such as repetition and a bit tiresome exploration.

    I had a lot of fun playing through the game, and exploring all the different locations around the world. The story was interesting, especially the main character being such a blank slate. It took me a few hours to get used to the combat style, and I will admit I got lost a few times during the story. But that was fine because I got to do some dungeons, explored the world and got buffs before falling back into doing the main questline.

    Drinkbox’s wonderfully daft action RPG is supported by smart systems that ensure you keep mixing characters and abilities while exploring its colourful world. [Issue#14, p.90]

    Unfortunately, Nobody Saves the World is around 15 hours in length, stretching its gameplay tightly over its duration to the eventual distortion of both. Is it a bad game? God, no. Most titles don't even have two hours of worthwhile stuff to do. This is an original idea attached to traditional adventuring fun with all the customisation that comes along with its genre here given a renewed focus. We only wish its dungeons were as well-crafted as its skill trees and visuals, but while there's not enough meat on the bone, what's here is still pretty delicious while it lasts.

    Evil Dead: The Game is an authentic and passionate recreation of a chaotic, violent, and wildly slapstick classic. Though plaudits are deserved for the title’s atmosphere and fan-pleasing references, a litany of technical hiccups, unstable mechanics, and odd design choices frequently hinder this promising release. In time, Evil Dead can become something very special. But as it stands, it still delivers a fistful of fun for its ravenous fanbase. Shop Smart.

    Nobody Saves the World is a fun time with a great transformation mechanic. You're constantly making progress, with bars going up and things unlocking but as enjoyable as that can be it does get repetitive. Two player co-op is nice but some other gameplay wrinkles could have really helped to distract from what is ultimately a to-do list.

    15-20 hours playtime. Art style and the abilities of the protagonist make this game great. Transforming into different characters and15-20 hours playtime. Art style and the abilities of the protagonist make this game great. Transforming into different characters and combining those with the abilities of other characters was the biggest fun. Music was okay to good. Difficulty low to medium. There is an NG+ but barely a reason to enter it.
    The story was as basic as the title of the game suggests.

    The majority of dungeons were just: enter, look for key or staircase; kill enemies while doing so, kill boss at the end. When I refer to boss...I pretty much just mean the waves of enemies spawning in. Was a bit disappointing. There were no real bosses at all. Rather hack & slash through whatever came in your way.

    Most NPC were pretty much one straight line in their character sheet. Just because your protagonist is called nobody you don't have to make every character feel like they are nobody. Nothing special about them but one.
