We here at Game Informer like to ask the hard questions. What’s the meaning of life? Will we ever get a proper Half-Life 3? Is No More Heroes 3 a worthy successor in the long-running series? While we can’t help you with answers to the first two questions, we sure can assist with the last one.
Join Alex Stadnik and John Carson, the game’s reviewer, to discuss the official Game Informer review for No More Heroes 3! We start our time highlighting the good, for which there is much, according to Mr. Carson. The game is dripping with style and boasts the same wild humor and slick visuals fans have come to know the series for. The combat can also be a lot of fun as players chop their way through a hoard of bizarre and fascinating enemy types. Those fights also culminate in exciting boss fights that epitomize No More Heroes 3’s exhilarating combat experience.
But it’s not all good news, unfortunately. Developer Grasshopper Manufacture misses the mark a bit when it comes to the game’s open world, which suffers from significant performance issues. In between boss fights, Travis will need to accrue money for an entrance fee to continue his quest, resulting in sometimes mundane and uninteresting activities such as picking up trash.
While there are some hit-or-miss moments, No More Heroes 3 gets most of what fans have been hoping for right in the 2021 series entry. To find out more about the finer points of the game though, be sure to watch the video above and let us know what you think in the YouTube comments (respectfully of course).
If you liked what you saw, then you’re in luck, as No More Heroes 3 drops exclusively on the Nintendo Switch on August 27!
