Fans of shooter titles are blessed with an abundance of terrific choices on the Switch, which unfortunately then has raised the bar substantially for making any sort of impression in the space for new titles. NoReload Heroes has a colorful look and probably more family-safe tone as things go in the genre, which could perhaps be a positive depending on what you’re looking for. The problem is that the twin-stick shooting itself is remarkably bland overall. There’s at least some variety to the weapons, and you’ll certainly need to experiment to find which ones suit your style. This is even more critical if you’re combining weapons among friends, working to find a balance of power and speed that can suit any sort of situation. The issue is just that too much time is spent with too few bland enemies and walking around until things begin to ramp up. In such an adrenaline-filled genre this is a title that just can’t get moving fast or intense enough, relegating it perhaps best to beginners.
