While different than the previous two No More Heroes, Travis Strikes Back is a decent 2.5 entry that is basically preparing the way for No More Heroes 3. With each game to uncover a Death Ball in the Death Drive MK II being different, there are at least multiple different visuals to be had even if the core gameplay doesn’t change that much from what you are taught in the very beginning.

The repetition and lack of inventiveness in the gameplay end up damaging a story full of homage and a scathing analysis of the current state of the video game industry.

Travis Strikes Again marks a new start for the No More Heroes series and it's a comemmoration of Grasshopper Entertainment 20 year history. Even within the weird and incredible game catalog from the developer, TSA is an unique game which long-time fans will find it endearing. For those that still don't know the developer, there are other options in the PS4 library, but TSA is also a title that it's worth playing if you ever find the chance to do so.

Leaping in Travis Strikes Again has a bit of stickiness to it which is not the best way to negotiate narrow platforms with bottomless pits. Thankfully these do not occur frequently enough and they are still not the worst platforming found in the indie scene. They just stick out because everything else is just so enjoyable.

Travis Strikes Again delivers a meaningful experience through meaningless actions. Its hyperactive changes of style and fun combat do plenty to curb some intentionally frustrating design.

There’s so much off-the-wall content here that you’ll be willing to push through its drier segments just to see what oddity the developer has in store next.

Some jokes land, and some moments shine, but most of No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again Complete Edition relies on heavy-handed doses of breaking fourth walls and common game modes. There's an audience for this franchise, but this game doesn't offer much for anyone else.

Ultimately, the Complete Edition is the best way to experience this spin-off, as it is a solid game in its own right and serves as an excellent, if different, primer for No More Heroes 3.
