    Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is outrageous. The game is uncompromisingly zany: full of smart design, fluid combat, and laugh out loud personality front to back. While some may be turned off by its low budget feel and disjointed design, those who can look past these rough edges will find a hack-and-slash so quirky that it’ll be tough not to fall in love. This title stands as a shining beacon of bold creativity and anyone who values risk-taking in games owes it to themself to give Travis Strikes Again a shot.

    Suda Goichi pays homage to some of the best indie games with Travis Strikes Again. We found lots of pop culture references, a unique sense of humor and some unique mechanics, although some elements such as camera and jump controls are not polished, and combat becomes repetitive.

    Thankfully, even if it’s a little weird and limited in some respects, Travis Strikes Again is a fun game that makes me excited for the future of the series.

    Playing Travis Strikes Again is an experience I'm glad I had, even if I wouldn't recommend it as a fun game. As a biting reflection of the ridiculousness of hardcore video game fans it's less successful than previous games, and its smaller scale makes the still-repetitive fighting even more dull. But the weirdness remains, and the Kafkaesque story of the Death Drive console paired with Suda51's signature takes on Japanese and American culture — plus the frequently enjoyable mish-mash of retro aesthetics — makes for a satisfyingly eccentric game unlike many others.

    Travis is back, but it tries to stretch out its low budget too much and ends up becoming quite simplistic and repetitive. It’s great for NMH and Suda51 fans, but it would’ve been nice having a shorter game with deeper and more diverse gameplay.

    If you’re willing to play a decent brawler that’s regularly interrupted by junky D-grade platforming to get to the madness, you’ll get a lot out of it. If you’re looking for a gameplay tour-de-force instead of a weird trip, you should probably look elsewhere.

    The disappointment is up to the punk, idiotic and meta fun that the first two No More Heroes provided. Admiring the independent scene that has revolutionized the video game in recent years, Suda51 gives the impression of having missed the hype train with this new, painful game.

    В игре большое разнообразие уровней, отличная и гибкая боевая система, неплохой сюжет, а так же крутейшие диалоги и атмосфера в духе Суды51.В игре большое разнообразие уровней, отличная и гибкая боевая система, неплохой сюжет, а так же крутейшие диалоги и атмосфера в духе Суды51.

    Левелдизайн, графика и музыка оставляют желать лучшего. По поводу первых двух плевать, а вот по поводу музыки жалко, что не Масафуми Такада писал OST.

    Travis Strikes Again очень напомнил именно Silver Case, Flower, Sun & Rain и Killer7, при этом исправив практически всё, что мне не нравилось в прошлых No More Heroes.

    С нетерпением жду No More Heroes 3 и Shadows of the Damned 2.

    That awkward moment when creator of this 'game' literally blackmails you to buy it, or else No More Heroes 3 won't exist.
    I was hoping this
    That awkward moment when creator of this 'game' literally blackmails you to buy it, or else No More Heroes 3 won't exist.
    I was hoping this is going to be at least decent experience.. Nope. It's a literal pile of crap. It looks like crap, it plays like crap. Occasional jokes are funny, yet they are like 0.005% of the game content.
    The most interesting and detailed location in the game is hub area. There are no gameplay elements in hub area. That's probably why it's okay. The music in hub is nice, too.
    Some people say 'oh man it's mini game compilation whadda ya want!'. I wish there was a single mini game in the first 7 or so hours that is remotely interesting. The rest of the gameplay consists of mashing Y or X buttons till all the bulletsponge (or hitsponge in this case) enemies on the screen die. Just to proceed to next screen with more bulletsponge enemies.
    Don't buy it. Blackmailing is bad. Being voluntarily blackmailed is plain stupid. And that's what creator of this game is proposing you. I'd rather prefer him do a Kickstarter or something.. But no thanks, not after this.
