    A fun game marred by a lack of innovation. It looks good and sounds decent, but most of what you'll find in One Piece has been done before and done better.
  2. A passable fighting game, but has nothing to recommend it to people who are not fans of its namesake anime and manga series.
  3. Nintendo Power

    Fans wil enjoy the customized in-fight dialogue between the characters. [Nov 2005, p.108]
  4. Grand Battle might be alright for two-player games, but the single-player experience is worn out in six hours or so, and I'm not sure how many people would want to jump into a tournament with this fighting system.
  5. It is limited in a few ways, namely in the number of characters (a total of 16 with unlocks) and the depth of the fighting system, but it is also something I can see as a great party game for groups of casual gamers of any age.
