    One-Punch Man fans have a lot to be excited about with this game and should definitely check it out! Even though the game is not centered around Saitama, it does closely follow the first few major story arcs in the manga, which makes this nerd very happy. The game is also simple enough for a young child to follow and enjoy (if the parent is okay with violence and chaos, that is). All in all, I give this game a 75 out of 100 for its easy to grasp combat system, endless player customization, and the beautiful visuals.

    Bandai Namco and Spike Chunsoft have brought us the video game debut of One Punch Man. A much awaited title that will please the fans of the series, but not those who are looking for a good fighting game due to its great simplicity.

    One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows on Xbox One delivers a flurry of hard-hitting punches, but misses with almost as many as it lands. The story-based goings on are in keeping with the anime, many recognisable characters feature and you just have to love the nonchalant Saitama. Even the fighting is a lot of fun thanks to the quirky events, ace killer moves and the arrivals, with a frantic feel to proceedings. However your hero is lacking in character, customisation options and just how powerless they feel at times.

    Fans of the series might get a kick out of it, but there’s not enough decent meat on the game’s bones to warrant any long-term attention.

    Being the titular One-Punch Man is fun, but the rest of A Hero Nobody Knows' repetitious fighting/action game hybrid is lackluster.

    One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows looks like a lazy attempt to create a One Punch Man fighting game, with a repetitive filler-riddled structure and a problematic technical production. It's got its fair share of fanservice content and the Saitama management mechanic is interesting, but it feels too much as every other Bandai Namco anime fighting game.

    It's difficult to recommend a game as bland as One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows to anyone; even hardcore fans of the manga. It definitely has its charms but underneath the surface, an incredibly hollow experience resides.

    One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is an Anime RPG Fighting Game. You control your own hero through the events of One Punch Man's FirstOne Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is an Anime RPG Fighting Game. You control your own hero through the events of One Punch Man's First season. You start out in Character Creation, with very limited options available to you, but many more unlockable while you play. This customization is amazing, especially once you unlock a bunch of cosmetics. Once you get your character made your adventure begins, and you meet Lecture Man, who guides you through your tutorial. And thus you begin your journey as a Hero! This journey is a ton of repetitive quests, either fetch and delivery quests or defeat the enemy. And once and a while you're path crosses that of the anime's storyline. The abundance of repeating the same thing creates a slow progression. The combat is heavy and sluggish, creating even more drag. This, unfortunately, doesn't feel like it captures what the anime delivers. The game is loaded with the humor from the anime, almost too much of it, as the jokes get stale after being reused countless times. and when Saitama joins the match, it's over, as he doesn't take damage, and wins with one punch... The online combat is unbalanced, as Saitama will show up, and the game uses the stats you've built during the game, so if you aren't a higher level be prepared to get smashed. You will see all the characters from the show, and during side missions, other players avatars can show up for you to use. Definitely made for the fans, the game is fun, but can become stale quickly.

The voice acting is terrible in terms of editing especially. It would sound better if my discord narrated it. The combat is okay at best and lackluster most of the time. The fact that it takes several hours to even unlock Saitama in a fighting game about his show is asinine. Over world had some decent ideas but nothing outstanding. Quests are boring. Enemies are mostly just a palette swap. Character customization is cool once you start unlocking stuff. But it just isn’t worth the time. Go play Xenoverse, FighterZ, or Smash. Expand
