  1. The variety of modes, the insane amount of unlockables and the sheer element of fun makes Grand Adventure a game not to be missed.
  2. This is one Grand Adventure that you don't want to miss if you're a One Piece fanatic, and even if you're not, there's certainly more than enough pick up and playability to warrant a rental or purchase.
  3. It includes an incredible amount of fighters from the series, and with all of the unlockables and story modes to complete, the replay value simply shoots through the roof.
  4. While the "Power Stone"-esque gameplay would probably appeal to most people, an overwhelming portion of the experience seems to require at least a passing interest in the anime. Still, it’s a great package for what it is and I genuinely enjoyed my time with it.

    Fans of Eiichiro Oda's comical pirate epic will certainly get the most out of the game, but if you like chaotic action and bizarre characters, just about anyone can enjoy it.

    If you’re a fan of the One Piece franchise, Grand Adventure is simply a no-brainer. The amount of depth and entertainment found in this seemingly tame fighter is just amazing.
  7. Tons of game modes combined with the Grand Adventure story mode makes or a complete all around package.
  8. If you aren't a fan of One Piece, you may want to rent Grand Adventure before you buy it, to see if the simplicity of the combat really puts you off or not. If you're a fan of One Piece, though, this game is easily a must buy-you'd do yourself a disservice if you didn't pick it up.
  9. Those who already own Battle won't be motivated to drive to the store just to drop $40 on a couple of additional features.
  10. Too bad the mediocre voice acting does more to keep you away than to keep playing. [Nov. 2006, p.82]
  11. For a game that is rated TEEN, the latest One Piece doesn’t provide the flare that a teen’s attention requires, unless you’re a rabid fan of the television series.
  12. A game pretty blatantly for fans of the show, but non-fans might find plenty here to like. It’s little more than Grand Battle with a single-player mode attached, but it’s your best chance to fight superpowered pirates this year.
  13. One Piece Grand Adventure feels like a beefier version of One Piece Grand Battle, but it's still not a very compelling brawler.
  14. It's not a great fighting game, but its wide array of characters, scenarios, and unlockable junk could be just the thing for less critical fans.
  15. If you're a hugh One Piece fan, then dive in; otherwise, find an alternative. [Nov. 2006, p.114]

    While the uninspiring adventure mode is excusable, the camera and the framerate problems are not; those two factors break the game.
  17. 40
    Perhaps the most puzzling element of Grand Adventure is the lack of a four-player mode, which is an essential ingredient for the fast-paced, item collecting, button-mashing style of fighting game.
