Not A Hero: Super Snazzy Edition
Top Critic Average
Not a Hero is a lot of fun with its cheesy humor and simple game mechanic, but players can expect to die A LOT in their bid to help BunnyLord gain global domination. The game quickly becomes quite difficult, especially for people new to shooters. With any number of ways to kill and die, the game has a good bit of variety, but running through buildings endlessly gets monotonous at times. Over half of the achievements can be picked up in the normal course of a casual game, but it will take a long time to 100% this one and you can expect to experience a lot of frustration along the way. Overall, it's a fun addition to your game library, especially for shooter fans who enjoy a challenge.
If you missed out on Not A Hero elsewhere, then this is the version to get.
There's no getting away from the fact that Not a Hero: Super Snazzy Edition is a reissue of a game that's already been out for years on other platforms, so if you've already emptied its virtual clips before there's not much here to coax you back in (bar the fact you can now enjoy it on a portable console). However, if you've yet to sign up to BunnyLord's mayoral bloodbath you're in for an ultraviolent treat. With an enjoyable, if brief add-on campaign to boot, this little side-scrolling platformer is a blast whether played on the go or blown-up on your TV. Canvassing has never been so much fun.
Frustrating as it may be, Not A Hero: Super Snazzy Edition is frequently exhilarating and a fresh take on the relatively stale genre of cover shooters.
However, the problems Bunnylord faces are the same as any other character. It feels wrong to end this review on such a tired phrase, but your mileage may vary regarding Not a Hero. I enjoyed it but it didn't grab me like similar games such as Mercenary Kings did. If you like comically-violent, pixelated shooters, you might try this out, but I suspect it's playing to a crowd that doesn't necessarily include me.
I enjoyed Not A Hero and loved playing through it again on the Nintendo Switch. It's the same great game I played just now portable. If you like the idea of helping with the Mayoral campaign of a bloodthirsty bunny from the future, then this is a game you should play today.
Not A Hero is an enjoyable 2D shooter that will provide a decent challenge to the majority of gamers. There are failings to be found here and there, but they're relatively rare and the comedic presentation generally provides enough coverage to paper over those cracks. It probably isn't a game that you'll blast through in a single sitting and it certainly won't be for everybody, but Not A Hero is definitely a good deal of fun.
A unique experience is to be found in Not a Hero. The elective journey through waves of opposition just proves how fun a small title can be and the added content provided a little extra for those who are yet to pick up the title on other platforms. While it has a few minor faults, they don't overshadow the experience, and it is a thoroughly commendable run and gun platformer.
"Not a Hero: Snazzy Edition" is a frenetic 2D action game that captivates you with its scathing sense of humor and its festival of violence, gore and debauchery, that will surprise you thanks to devilish mechanics and gameplay
