    No More Heroes III is a violent action game, an open-world do-gooder sim, a dorky dad story and a tribute/parody of "popcorn classic blockbusters" all in one. [Issue #55 – October 2021, p. 67]

    Credit must go to Nintendo for supporting this project, though. Yes, it might be the “safest” game that Goichi Suda has produced in quite some time, and the energy is just not the same when he’s retreading old ideas rather than creating something new. But then Goichi Suda on a flat day is still more creative than 99 per cent of the auteurs out there, and No More Heroes III is still big, colourful, bold and filled with surrealistic humour. With the energy dialled right up to the maximum, it’s hard not to love something this brash.

    No More Heroes 3 is grindhouse cinema in video game form, with a story that resembles the Saiyan Arc from Dragon Ball Z if it were directed by Quentin Tarantino. It doesn't take the series in any new directions and it has poor visuals and performance issues, but it's still an absolute blast to play.

    Travis Touchdown has grown in his “final installment” of No More Heroes. Because of this, the overall game has a different feel than previous entries and might be why it’s my favorite game in the franchise. Travis is a much more likeable character with some tangible realizations of action’s consequences. Paired with an interesting story, this makes No More Heroes 3 the best entry in the series. If you are a fan, No More Heroes 3 should definitely be added to your library.

    No More Heroes III is a wild ride though a psychedelic warzone that begs to be experienced. The technical issues and slog of an open world drag it down at times, but it never stopped me from wanting to see it through. I really wish the game had been released on more powerful hardware as it is clear the team had bigger ambitions than the Switch could handle. Still if you have enjoyed previous entries then this is a no-brainer. Definitely a solid end to the trilogy and one of the most unique games you will play ever.

    No More Heroes 3 can count on a funny story, absurd characters, an impeccable direction and very solid fights. At the same time, however, the promise of an open world worthy of this name is betrayed to say the least, with some of the worst levels ever seen in recent years.

    If you had a mandate for all of the things a No More Heroes game shouldn't be, "boring" would be near the top of the list, but this sequel frequently is just that. No More Heroes 3 lacks the irreverent charm and personality of its predecessors. Combat picks up the slack, and there's a degree of vivid style to be found there, but the game falters in so many other areas. After an 11-year wait, maybe No More Heroes 3 was always destined to fall short of our expectations. But to end without so much as a touchdown is a mighty disappointment.

    This game is amazing! I have no idea what critics even mean anymore with some of these reviews, I sometimes wonder if they even play the gamesThis game is amazing! I have no idea what critics even mean anymore with some of these reviews, I sometimes wonder if they even play the games they review. This game is best appreciated if you play 1 2 and TSA before hand. I played through them all once again in preparation for this game and I gotta say it's euphoric to see Travis in this game in a true to form sequel to his series. The combat is AMAZING easily the best combat in any game I've played in the past 2 years, it's weighty its satisfying and most importantly it doesn't get old. The story the gameplay the graphic style of the game all fits so perfectly. This is probably the best No More Heroes experience after the first game which is amazing that it was able to recapture the feeling of playing NMH1 for the first time way back when I was a teen. Amazing game and an amazing buy 10/10 this dude Suda is a genius! Expand

    LOVED IT. No More Heroes III is the best entry in the series. Although the game suffers the same faults as in previous entries, it's still aLOVED IT. No More Heroes III is the best entry in the series. Although the game suffers the same faults as in previous entries, it's still a blast. As usual, the characters steal the show, especially Travis and new villain, FU. Every boss fight is fun to experience and I mean it when I say you should go into this blind because NMH3 throws so many fun surprises. It really helps to play the previous games so you have an attachment with certain characters. The final fight was a huge treat for NMH fans and newcomers alike. Despite its flaws, I still had an amazing time with NMH3. Expand

    The combat is satisfying, definitely my favorite in the series, only played NMH1 & NMH2, never got to TSA. My only gripe is the open worldThe combat is satisfying, definitely my favorite in the series, only played NMH1 & NMH2, never got to TSA. My only gripe is the open world because it's still janky after the patch but when you're in combat it's a totally different game, maybe it's my eyes but graphics look smoother and better too. Overall it's a great purchase to my Switch collection. Expand

    "No More Heroes III is one of those games that you just love or can't do anything with.

We find the latest part of the series simply wonderful and above all wonderfully wacky. The storyline is immediately appealing and the wacky characters and dialogues create a great atmosphere. In terms of gameplay, you get great action and a few small bugs. In return, the graphics and especially the great Japanese soundtrack are pleasing. If you would like to have the latest part of the series, you should gladly take a look at "No More Heroes III" for the Nintendo Switch. Give the game a chance, you won't be disappointed. Expand
