    Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is outrageous. The game is uncompromisingly zany: full of smart design, fluid combat, and laugh out loud personality front to back. While some may be turned off by its low budget feel and disjointed design, those who can look past these rough edges will find a hack-and-slash so quirky that it’ll be tough not to fall in love. This title stands as a shining beacon of bold creativity and anyone who values risk-taking in games owes it to themself to give Travis Strikes Again a shot.

    Suda Goichi pays homage to some of the best indie games with Travis Strikes Again. We found lots of pop culture references, a unique sense of humor and some unique mechanics, although some elements such as camera and jump controls are not polished, and combat becomes repetitive.

    What would otherwise be a mess is beautifully brought together in Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes. While much more simplistic when compared to its predecessors, Travis Strikes Again is a fun and fast paced action game that commands your attention from beginning to end. It has a few pacing issues, especially towards the end and the co-op implementation might not be perfect, but Travis Strikes Again is yet another momentous trip through the wicked and warped mind of Suda51.

    Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes doesn’t invite you in. If you’re unfamiliar with the huge swatch of game history, Grasshopper’s catalog, or even games industry business gossip referenced within, this will come off as a less entertaining surrealist action game overshadowed by Suda51’s old work like Killer7 or even No More Heroes. Anyone that can actually speak the language of this game will be richly rewarded by the promise that there may, in fact, still be heroes out there.

    Travis Touchdown's return is full of craziness, just as you would expect from Goichi Suda. Unfortunately, is also a repetitive and aesthetically disappointing action game.

    Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes has Suda51’s eccentric charm, but the repetitive hack and slash gameplay doesn’t feel nearly as great as previous entries in the series.

    The disappointment is up to the punk, idiotic and meta fun that the first two No More Heroes provided. Admiring the independent scene that has revolutionized the video game in recent years, Suda51 gives the impression of having missed the hype train with this new, painful game.

The hack and slash together with other mini games and layers upon layers of secrets, funny writing and mix of different concepts is awesome.
    This is also a game that cares way more about gameplay than graphics.
    Don't sleep on this one if you looking for something new and fresh.

    Really cool game. Worth it for people who like something a little off the wall.

    I don't understand the repetitive argument.. Yeah... sure
    Really cool game. Worth it for people who like something a little off the wall.

    I don't understand the repetitive argument.. Yeah... sure you can play on sweet mode and just hold Y if that is what you want.... however there is a lot more here if you want to do more with the combat.

Game is plays like a old school beat 'em up with a surprising amount of complexity thanks to the chip system that allows you 4 combos you can customize to fit your needs and play style. The games presentation often feels low budget and Indie but not really in a bad way at all, its quirky and charming more than anything. My only major complaint is the Second Death Ball Stage felt extremely drug out and the last is filled with so many enemies that it often pushes the games fighting mechanics to the breaking point and makes the game feel cheap at times. Everything in-between felt enjoyable, and ran at a practically constant stable frame-rate with no real slowdown or pop in. If you enjoyed Suda 51s past work do check it out, its more of the same weirdness you likely already love with a new style of game-play! Expand

    That awkward moment when creator of this 'game' literally blackmails you to buy it, or else No More Heroes 3 won't exist.

    That awkward moment when creator of this 'game' literally blackmails you to buy it, or else No More Heroes 3 won't exist.
    I was hoping this is going to be at least decent experience.. Nope. It's a literal pile of crap. It looks like crap, it plays like crap. Occasional jokes are funny, yet they are like 0.005% of the game content.
    The most interesting and detailed location in the game is hub area. There are no gameplay elements in hub area. That's probably why it's okay. The music in hub is nice, too.
    Some people say 'oh man it's mini game compilation whadda ya want!'. I wish there was a single mini game in the first 7 or so hours that is remotely interesting. The rest of the gameplay consists of mashing Y or X buttons till all the bulletsponge (or hitsponge in this case) enemies on the screen die. Just to proceed to next screen with more bulletsponge enemies.
    Don't buy it. Blackmailing is bad. Being voluntarily blackmailed is plain stupid. And that's what creator of this game is proposing you. I'd rather prefer him do a Kickstarter or something.. But no thanks, not after this.
