  1. 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.
  2. It feels pretty clunky for a fighting game, and only those die-hard One Piece fans will claw their way through this title.

    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.

    Yes the omake material is lazy but the stuff that was actually made by the programming team themselves, the actual product you're paying for - every inch of it smells of a product where those in control knew exactly what to do with it. [JPN Import]

    The traditional core mechanics and all-out wackiness should propel it near the top of the heap. It's a very solid effort, particularly when compared to most anime fighters. [Nov 2005, p.96]
  6. 50
    Unremarkable, offering none of the flash or depth of other fighting games based on an anime license.
  7. An uncreative yet valiant attempt at a lighthearted arena battler, if one with a somewhat tiresome presentation.
