One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is a great idea with some fun combat that is bogged down by repetitive and dull missions that lock the best content away.

If you are madly in love with the series starring Saitama, you will have several tasks to perform in the world created by ONE, coming from the homonymous city. Between fights with known monsters and fetch quests, you will feel at home and ready to accompany Saitama in training to become the most powerful hero in the world (however, I do not advise you to cross your own path). A less successful entry while playing in general but with a lot of lore to entertain fans, which simply does not justify an AAA PVP.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows lets players have access to the signature world of Saitama with solid combat and character designs but ends up lacking in many areas.

...for those like myself who don’t know much about this world, I’d say it won’t pack enough punch for you to commit.

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.

Although it's super clunky and very unpolished, there's a weird charm to One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows. It may not satisfy brawler aficionados or hardcore OPM fanatics, but it should amuse those who want to experience life as a flamboyant superhero.

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 is a game filled with interesting ideas, but the execution left a lot to be desired and at the end feels like another cheap anime cash-in by Bandai Namco

The main problem with One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is that it just isn’t fun to play. It doesn’t retain the show’s charm because it completely misses the mark when it comes to its tone and setting. One Punch Man is all about how dumb the Hero Association’s bureaucracy is and you’re basically forced to climb the same ladder the show constantly made fun of. It is also a show about how boring Saitama’s life is due to the fact he’s so overpowered and that is visible whenever you’re actually able to play as him for the mere seconds he’s onscreen.

To that end, it's more charitable to see One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows as more of a Hero Association RPG than a fully qualified fighting game. You won't be seeing it on the main stage at EVO anytime soon, but you can at least have a fun few hours raising your own hero.

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.

One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows delivers style over substance. It’s a casual adventure/fighting game where chaos and spectacle take precedence over deep and strategic combat.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is a game with good ideas that unfortunately fails to capture the essence of the original anime with its monotonous gameplay and concepts executed in a way that leaves much to be desired.

An amusing and charming figher RPG with some very unique elements. If you are able to overlook some of the combat's shortcomings, getting to play as Saitama will make it all worthwhile

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 is a serviceable 3D anime brawler. You don’t need to be a fan to like this game, but I’d still recommend it to fans first and foremost since they’ll be more likely to forgive the game’s faults and appreciate the fan service.
