    My Hero One’s Justice uses its source material well. There’s minor and infrequent issues with the game’s combat, being that some commands go unnoticed in the heat of the chaos, but in the face of everything that the game gets right, this is easy to overlook. There’s plenty of exciting content to work through here. Content that, for the most part, remains stunning, empowering and diverse from the get-go.

    My Hero: One's Justice faithfully recreates Horikoshi's characters and movesets, but it feels a bit too basic and unbalanced for a fighting game, resulting in a game suited only for the manga's bigger fans.

    Ultimately, My Hero One’s Justice will entertain those who it’s made for, but it wont impress them.

    It's a shame My Hero One's Justice's Story mode doesn't do a good job introducing the world of My Hero Academia, with several important narrative beats either missing or revealed through subtitles while you're busy trying to fight. The offline modes against AI don't do much for the game either. However, One's Justice's combat is both accessible and enjoyable. When two players face off--either online or off--the game captures the adrenaline-pumping feeling of My Hero Academia's most notable fights. Pulling off moves from the manga/anime and outsmarting an opponent with devastating combos feels rewarding, and that's enough to keep the player coming back to the game for more.

In terms of content there is quite a bit for you to get to grips with and this content will no doubt keep you satisfied because there’s variety present in it as well.
    There’s an array of different fighting styles for you to try out and this does without a doubt make each character stand out with uniqueness. The combat mechanics have been done really well and in fact on the whole each different mechanic that’s present in the game has been done well. I really enjoyed how the game rewarded me for playing because getting coins for new outfits not only gives the game replaybility but it makes it worthwhile as well. The story is fun and in some ways unique in parts it does get repetetive quite quickly. The combat does take a bit of getting used to and that does frustrate you a little bit, especially at the start. I’ll admit to you now that I didn’t know much about the popular My Hero Academia series before playing My Hero One’s Justice, but after playing the game for quite a few hours I can safely say that they’ve definitely made me a fan of this franchise. From the moment I started the game the presentation caught my eye and to say I enjoyed both the visuals and sound design that were present would be a massive understatement. This then meant I enjoyed the gameplay that was present as well and I was pleasantly surprised by how fluid the combat mechanics were even if it did take me a little while to get used to it. In terms of content the game has a generous amount for you to get to grips and the amount of variety present in the content will keep you satisfied for quite a while. This then means that the story which is a little disappointing doesn’t prove to be a big problem and you easily forget about this due to the brilliant characters and different fighting styles available to you. At the end of the day then I hope to see more game’s like My Hero One’s Justice making their way to the Xbox One because I really enjoyed what was on offer and when it’s all said and done the game gets a big thumbs up from me.
