No More Heroes 3 Review
No More Heroes 3 is the strangest game I’ve played. Buckle up! Here is our review of No More Heroes 3 for the Nintendo Switch.
No More Heroes 3 is strange. It is very, very, very, very, very, very, very strange. What? You want me to explain the plot? Okay…
Travis Touchdown, an assassin, must save the world from aliens that dress like 70s B-Movie villain rejects! Thats the simplistic explanation for the game’s plot without too many spoilers.
No More Heroes 3, at its heart, is an R-rated action fest full of swear words and ultra violence. However, that’s not the whole sum of the game. After its initial tutorial, a big open world is available and it’s full of quests, sub-quests, mini-games, and surprises around every corner.
The game has good controls too. You can use a pro controller, attached joycons or detached joycons. And if you use the detached joycons, you’ll get to try out some good motion controls. Though, you won’t be able to swing the joycons around as a sword excect for in special moments. That seems like a messed opportunity, but still what motion controls are in the game are very good.
My favorite motion control moment? Fixing a toilet! And once its fixed, you can sit on it and save!
Goofiness and Graphics – No More Heroes 3
And you know what else? No More Heroes 3 is good looking too. Well, as long as you play it on the TV.
On an HDTV, No More Heroes 3 has really good graphics. It’s a pretty detailed game with its own goofy style and even some really surprising graphical moments that I won’t spoil.
That said, if you play it in handheld mode, you can expect the graphics to be a bit blurry and for there to be some performance issues. No More Heroes 3 really should be played on the TV.
As for the sound? It’s got super cheesy voice acting that totally fits it! And the game’s music is good. What about the game overall? Is it good?
No More Heroes 3 won’t be for everyone. If you don’t like blood and swearing and trippy, very bizarre gameplay, then you should skip this game.
But if you have an open mind, you may find lots to enjoy about No More Heroes 3. It’s a game packed with so many moments where you’ll find yourself saying out loud “What the —-?!”
No More Heroes 3 could be the most unique, weird, and darkly joyful game on the Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo Canada provided a digital code for this game. It is available now for the Nintendo Switch.
