One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows Review

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows reviewed by Kyle Hilliard on Xbox One X. Also available on PlayStation 4 and PC. Narration by Max Scoville.

“The premise of One Punch Man shouldn’t work. If the main protagonist has infinite power and can defeat any enemy in one punch, how can that create a compelling story with stakes and danger? Where is the drama? And how can that possibly translate to a video game? Power fantasies are fun to control, but doesn’t absolute power get boring? The answer in the source material is to turn the whole story into a comedy that plays with the cliches established by decades of action anime, and it works well. The answer in One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is to let you control Saitama, the titular One-Punch Man, only sparingly, and it does not work as well. But there are still some fun ideas peppered throughout.”
