If not for its uninspired design and lack of effort in the storytelling, One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows might have actually been a good game. Oddly for a fighting game, it focuses almost entirely on its single-player, often to its detriment. But if you can look past the repetitive structure and the uneven pacing, there's actually some fun combat to be found, and its multiplayer meta is surprisingly addictive.

A good combat system alone is not enough to make One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows a real hit.

Overall though, its flaws make it hard for those ideas to shine, and hold the game back from being anything other than an offering for die-hard “One Punch Man” fans to dig their teeth into.

If you are a fan of One Punch Man you'll probably get a kick out of A Hero Nobody Knows but don't expect it to keep you playing long. For every minute of brilliance there is an hour of grinding to go along with it, and that's trying even for the most dedicated fans of the Caped Baldy.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is nothing more than a quick cash grab made with no ambition. The characters are fun and the game has a clever way of creating a gameplay system out of Saitama's power and the series' events. But that pretty much it. The game quickly becomes boring and could visually pass as a (bad) PS3 game. One Punch Man fans will unfortunately have to wait for a better game.

The gameplay is not fun at all and the visuals aren’t that good either. Fans of the series may find some redeeming qualities within the game but if you are unfamiliar with the One Punch Man series, I would stay away from this game.

The best way to describe One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is a game designed for a certain type of fan. Those looking for a more complicated gameplay experience or to live the story will likely be disappointed, whereas anyone looking for something set in that world will probably have fun. Toss in a wide variety of wacky characters and it has enough to look forward to. Some might not enjoy the basic elements or get tired of the relatively low difficulty but for those looking to just live in the world, you'll likely be at home.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is, unfortuantely, One Punch Man: A Game Nobody Will Play. It doesn't treat the source material with the respect it deserves and, ultimately, feels flat all things considered.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows throws players into a world of heroes. While the game looks flashy with big attacks and heavy cosmetic customization, the framework that this game is built on is pretty sparse. If you want a fighting game this is dime a dozen, though fans might get a tickle out of hurdles made to make Saitama 'balanced.'

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is a fun but flawed fighting game. Regardless, it's funny and true to the anime enough to be given a chance.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows it's basically Jump Force with Saitama and his friends and enemies.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is unfortunately not the hero this city deserves… or needs. While it does a good job of capturing the aesthetic and charm of the One Punch Man universe via its cast of recognisable characters and suitably ludicrous character customisation, it doesn't quite hold its own as a video game. Instead, it stumbles in its presentation, content and, crucially, it's combat. With more of a focused vision on what it wanted to be it might have been able to set itself apart, but this is sadly not the case here.

Ultimately, how we judge this One Punch Man game depends on our own expectations. It is not the most pleasant experience but if you can get over the flaws, it is not a terrible game overall.

ONE PUNCH MAN: A HERO NOBODY KNOWS is fun to play, but is no match when compared to other fighting games in this genre. Gameplay mechanics are neither deep enough nor matched together the way they should, and the final product seems underdeveloped.

Unfortunately, we are facing a completely forgettable game. With a story mode that has many pacing problems, the experience becomes annoying really fast. It may be enjoyed by anime fans.

Despite flashy visuals and a relatively entertaining story mode, One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows's fighting mechanics are shallow and unsatisfying.

There’s a respectable degree of fanservice here, but little to see for casual fans. The silver-lining is in the anime aesthetics, which make the game worth a second glance for those on the fence.

One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows may please some fans of the overpowered warrior, but the repetitive campaign missions, formulaic fighting mechanics, and underwhelming presentation will limit the appeal of this fighting game.
