    A title perfect for gamers of any age. It's safe for kids as there's only animated violence and it sports a simplified control scheme, yet it has enough content and challenge to keep experienced adult gamers entertained for quite some time.
  2. Bandai and Ganbarion hit the nail on the head making this title mimic the One Piece anime, yet placed it into a genre that allowed them to add their own flavor to the series.
  3. 75
    It's a rarity for any fighting anime game to have any sort of substance, style and especially, playability. Bandai has done an exceptional job in capturing the show's trademark comedy and battles.
  4. 70
    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.
  5. It feels pretty clunky for a fighting game, and only those die-hard One Piece fans will claw their way through this title.
  6. As a single-player experience, One Piece is inadequate; as a two-player romp, it won't hold your interest for long, even (and almost especially) if you're a fan of the One Piece anime or manga.
  7. 40
    Light on substance and heavy on style. If you're a One Piece madman who simply has to have everything to do with the series, it's not a horrible game. It's just not exceptional. As a multiplayer party game, it's good for a quick fix every once in a while.
