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.

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.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows falls terribly short in almost every aspect. While the premise works well in the world of Anime, it does not translate well to the format of Gaming. A combination of lackluster gameplay, woeful voice-acting and a story as bland as they come, even die-hard fans of the series would be doing themselves a favour in avoiding this one at all costs.

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.

As fans of One-Punch Man, in any case, in the new license licensed by Bandai Namco you will find a lot of fanservice with pleasure, from the characterization of a rather large roster to the reconstruction of a crackling universe.

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.

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.

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 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 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, 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: Hero Nobody Knows triumphs in creating a battle dynamic that accommodates the particularities of its great protagonist and works very well for those already initiated in this universe. Beyond that, it is a game similar to so many other famous anime adaptations, with an extremely simplified combat system and a single class C look.

Despite the weird performance hitches in some spots and the game feeling a bit clunky at times, I am having one hell of a good time with the game.

One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is a complete waste of a great manga/anime property. Instead of creating a worthwhile game for the series in the vein of a fun action RPG or spirited beat ’em up, fans are instead treated to a lame arena fighting game.

A video game from an amazing anime series is not necessarily an amzing game and One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is an exact example of it. The fighting system and some features of the game is satisfying, but the main problem is so repetitive gameplay and also technical graphics issues. If you love saitama you will enjoy the game, but you should know that its not the game that matches the quality of One punch man anime series.

You’re never going to be amazed by it – it’s pretty by-the-numbers – but you are going to be engrossed as you turn your wimpy wannabe hero into a saviour admired by all.

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.

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.

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

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.
