No More Heroes Review (Nintendo Switch)

After being ranked #11 in the United Assassins Association, Travis Touchdown puts his trusty beam katana to the test as he faces off against the world’s top 10 assassins in deadly battle. It’s a long way to the top, but this all-American otaku won’t stop until he’s the #1 assassin, baby!

Cons:

  • A lot of Annoying QTE moments and feels like anything and everything has a QTE.
  • Combat has a slight learning curve.
  • First impressions are just a lot of tutorials.
  • Stop-start action.
  • Screen gets overly busy and distracting.
  • Slow menu transitions.
  • Interaction points don’t always describe what they do.
  • Combat is slow and not that fun as you do the whole death blow sequence, it drags it all down.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
