Even as a first outing for a game based on this highly entertaining intellectual property, One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows feels incredibly lackluster.

One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows had the unlimited potential to create an extraordinary experience, but this was not accomplished due to numerous design flaws. Despite some upgrades, OPM still retains much of the weaknesses and disadvantages of the former Spike Chunsoft title and even added a number of new bugs to its mix. The result is a title that is neither capable of satisfying fans of the One Punch Man series nor Fighting style fans.

The game forces one to grind levels in a generic way while offering little satisfaction when hitting a milestone.

It's difficult to recommend a game as bland as One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows to anyone; even hardcore fans of the manga. It definitely has its charms but underneath the surface, an incredibly hollow experience resides.

However, unlike its source material, there’s nothing particularly special or engaging here, so unless you’re a massive fan of One Punch Man, I’d suggest looking elsewhere for your anime fighter fix.

...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, 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.'

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.

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.

Perhaps a severe drop in price would make this worth a look, but for now only extremely hardcore One Punch Man fans should consider making a purchase.

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.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is just an average anime fighting game that tries to be a little different. But sometimes less means more. The game gives recommendations of five points out of ten. Unfortunately, this is a purely matter for the core fans of the series. But even they will quickly stop playing the game.

Fun and faithful to its base material, A Hero Knobody Knows works best when it can overcome its visible budget limitations.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is low-cost hero who has trouble working as fighting or adventure, like Saitama's, neither good or bad.

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.

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.
