Overall My Hero One's Justice is a game that fans of the series will definitely be able to enjoy. While it does have its flaws, at its core is solid and easily accessible fighting game that anyone can pick up and have some fun with.

You know when you purchase your favourite packet of chips from the shops, take them home, and upon opening them, find they’re half filled with air? Well, that’s kind of how My Hero One’s Justice feels. It’s slick as all hell, looks great, and has the elements to be a winner because it has a great foundation backed with solid gameplay. However, it’s also just a bit empty and leaves you with the feeling of wanting more. With some minor tweaks, My Hero One’s Justice could have fallen the other way into a “must have” sort of game. Unfortunately for now, though, you’re going to have to satiate yourself with a couple of tasty handfuls and nibble at the crumbs that dropped onto your shirt.

My Hero One's Justice is packed with things to do and looks good while doing them. The battles themselves are fun and frenetic with the characters playing well against each other. This is probably the best arena battle game to date from any anime. Plus Ultra.

I think ultimately, this game will boil down to what each individual player is looking for. My Hero One's Justice falls in between something casual and competitive, a game that can be fun to enjoy with friends or played competitively at a much lesser level than other games in the fighting game community. On that note, I'll leave you with a saying from the greatest hero of all time… PLUS ULTRA!!!

Overall, though, it's tough not to recommend My Hero One's Justice all the same. Being able to take these characters out for a spin and re-enact some of their most memorable moments from the story is a treat, and the fighting gameplay itself is just strong enough that it keeps drawing me back in whenever I think I'm done with it for the next few days. It's a solid game that can easily draw in newcomers as well, thanks to the story mode's careful retreading of past plots, too. My Hero One's Justice is a strong introduction to what could easily be the foundation of a valuable fighting franchise for Bandai Namco and a must-own for My Hero Academia fans.

It isn’t complex or ground-breaking, but My Hero: One’s Justice is a ton of over-the-top anime fighting fun. The abundance of single-player content and unlockables will keep players busy for quite some time, and the incredibly accurate visual style and fun gameplay make One’s Justice worth checking out.

The Switch version has a few rough edges, but ultimately the colourful anime brawling feels perfectly at home on Nintendo's continually surprising handheld.

My Hero One's Justice is, at its beating heart, enjoyable. A low barrier of entry results in pick up and play fun, and there's a treasure trove of unlockables to be discovered. It's a shame then that it's marred by repetition and a spattering of niggles that dampen its quality.

Bandai Namco set a goal to adapt My Hero Academia into a video game, and the overall result is quite decent in My Hero One's Justice. It's not a groundbreaking game for those that played other 3D brawlers from the same publisher, but then again the Naruto game franchise didn't become what it is today from just one released title.

My Hero One's Justice is a solid start for My Hero Academia's fighting game franchise that's accessible to players of all skill levels. While it leans more toward the simpler side of fighting games, it still has a good amount of tools to reward more technical players who master its timed blocks, counters and unblockable attacks. It can use some balance tweaks and online connectivity can be improved. Fun and easy-to-pick-up gameplay, however, combined with excellent character designs that capture the look and feel of the source material make this a nice fighter for Academia nuts.

My Hero Academia isn't reinventing the anime fighter wheel just yet, but above average combat and incredible source material means the next title has a lot of room to improve. The game's visuals and atmosphere are a blast and it is great fun to wield the expanisve variety of abilities. The combat system, while certainly playable, could use a bit more nuance, and storytelling seems confused about who its aimed at. Overall, My Hero One's Justice is a strong first entry with mountains of potential in what we hope will become a long running series.

My Hero One’s Justice is a good adaptation from the My Hero Academia Anime and Manga series, However, The game is far from perfect. The Story cannot attract those who are not familiar with the series' story. There are also weird problems with online play specially in the PC version and some technical problems in gameplay and graphic. There is also no English voice acting available. On the other side, the whole combat mechanics are well-implemented and also customization is very diverse. The artistic aspect of graphics of the game and character modelling are also very good. If you like the anime, then you probably will like the game too, but if you don’t know the anime, the story and other parts of the game may seem confusing.

My Hero One’s Justice is a conundrum. The game has some great, fun, fast paced gameplay even though it’s rather one dimensional with button bashing. It has an excellent cast of characters and fans of the anime and manga franchise will love it. However, there’s just too much that’s gone wrong with a formula that worked so well for Bandai Namco’s other major shounen game series. Severely handicapping a player’s attack options is not a good choice.

I had a lot of fun with My Hero One’s Justice. There’s something about the game’s simplicity that felt refreshing in not needing to completely commit myself into learning the ropes. It’s a fun fighter to take on the go, too, allowing for players to split the Joy-Con for a quick, convenient throwdown. It may not have the most robust features in a fighting game, and there is a lot here that could be improved upon, but, despite this, the easy to learn gameplay system and over-the-top combat results in an entertaining score-settler regardless of whether you’re a fan of the series or not.

All in all, My Hero's One Justice is a fun experience for fans, but that's about its limit. It's faithful to the source material almost to a fault, and it does a great job of including little touches and inside jokes that make it clear that a lot of love for the franchise was included in the game. As a game on its own merits, though, it is thoroughly average. The unbalanced gameplay feels appropriate for the franchise, but it can also lead to it not being very fun for head-to-head play. If you're a big fan of the "My Hero Academia" anime and manga, you'll get your money's worth from this game, but anyone else should wait for a price drop.

Given that we live in a time with a seemingly unprecedented number of absolutely fantastic anime fighters, that might be a big ask for some.

My Hero One's Justice isn't a bad game; it just doesn't do anything to stand out. Combat is okay for the genre, with the ability to destroy/knock people into buildings being fun, it just isn't enough to sell it. Combine that with poor load times and rather short story and it's a fairly hard sell, even to fans. That being said, if you're a die hard My Hero Academia fan or just really enjoy simple fighters and this isn't enough to discourage you, there is enough to still have fun.

Bandai-Namco hasn't deviated from their formula of arena fighters that follow strict, already told storylines, with simplistic gameplay mechanics that are hidden under flashy animations and combo counters. While there is much to love about the character designs and reliving some vital moments from the anime series fans have come to love, there just isn't that much substance to hold players captivated for any extended period of time. The animations are impressive, the sound and feel of the menus and characters rings true. Unfortunately there just isn't enough unique content that will entrance players to continue playing after the novelty has worn off.

If the likes of Blade Strangers and SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy have got you in the mood for easy-to-pick-up fighters, this title will easily fit that mould, but for everyone else, it's a disappointing use of a franchise brimming with quirky (no pun intended) potential.
