    Even if you don't know anything about the manga or anime, One Piece: World Seeker will dazzle your mind with its colorful world and satisfy your need to bash some skulls with its addictive combat. In other words, it's a great time.

    In terms of open-world game design, World Seeker isn’t an innovator, but it borrows and re-imagines familiar mechanics well (from the Batman: Arkham games, in particular) and proves why they are perfect for the One Piece universe.

    One Piece: World Seeker is by far the best the series has been in game form. Combat feels good even if it is one note. The world is simply stunning to traverse through and the story and characters really carried me through to the end. I wish it was more fleshed out in terms of variety. One Piece continues to be a series I have an affinity for even without ever having experienced the anime, which means I will most likely be on-board for whatever comes next.

    The One Piece franchise is well used in World Seeker, providing plenty of fan service to the players, but unfortunately Gambarion failed to build a great and satisfying open world around it.

    Even with One Piece: World Seeker's problems it can be fun to play once you get into the main story missions. The cutscenes are entertaining and the game has good character dialogue. It starts to get more interesting once more characters are introduced. Fans of the One Piece franchise will most likely enjoy the game for what it is much more than I did, but I don't see how you can ignore the gameplay flaws. The game really needs more options for exploration and more to do in its environments.

    One Piece: World Seeker tries to do many things but without enough focus in any of these, resulting in a rather disappointing game: the stealth, RPG and crafting parts feel too underdeveloped, while combat isn't satisfying and the open world looks too empty and lifeless. Some elements like the story, the swinging mechanic and the many characters present are still good tho and save it from being a complete failure.

    One Piece: World Gofer would have been a much more befitting title to put to this dull adventure. I’ll credit the game for its gorgeously detailed world, but this splendor is merely superficial. Most of your time spent here will consist of taking on generic missions, picking up fetch quests, and constantly battling against the game’s few boring enemy variants. The end result makes for a repetitive slog that fails miserably to excite on almost all fronts.

Personally, I’m a very Casual gamer rather than a Competitive one. The game offers little to no competition nor skill required whatsoever. Which really makes it a fun way to just explore and traverse the beautifully done setting. In terms of fighting mechanics, it leaves a lot to be desired. Considering how little the variety of the moves are and the one button combos that has the power to defeat all non boss enemies in one complete combo. As an open world game, definitely dont expect it to be GTA V or Spiderman PS4 level or you definitely will be disappointed. Give the game a chance with an open mind and you might enjoy it just as much as I have. Definitely a Flawed Execution but the enjoyment I have gained from this game was quite remarkable. Expand

Combat is admittedly repetitive and boring, and it's not as free-flowing as Spiderman. However, I also have more upgrades to do in terms of movement and combat, but the open world of Ida keeps me coming back. I am about 6 hours in, and it looks gorgeous. I got this and the Division 2 on the same day, and found myself investing more time in this game. Expand

I enjoy like the One Piece franchise but I am not a fan or anything like that because for me there are better franchises out there. I went into playing One Piece: World Seeker with an open mind and it was an enjoyable experience but there were some issues to contend with. From the moment I started the game, I enjoyed what the presentation side of the game delivered to me and in my opinion both the visuals and sound design enhanced the story. There’s quite a lot for you to do and the game definitely offers you a generous amount of content, but unfortunately here’s where I bumped into a few problems. The combat isn’t great and pulling of moves never really felt fun, and I think one of the main reasons why was the lack of varied enemies you can actually execute the moves on. This is a downfall because there are plenty of new abilities you get to unlock during your adventure. So if you can put up with tedious enemies and quests then I’m sure you’ll love what One Piece: World Seeker brings to the table because it does get more right than it gets wrong and it carries on the series pretty well despite its imperfections. Not a huge fan of the series in general, but I feel my rating was fair. Expand

    Graphically World Seeker looks really pretty actually. The semi-realistic terrains look stylish. The character models also look pretty good.

    The story is also solid. It feels like watching one of the One Piece movies.

    Gameplay: sadly though the gameplay is the jankiest part of the experience. For one, Luffy feels tanky in the way he controls. At first this was really annoying to me, but you get used to it after playing a while, but it still does not feel ideal.

    If you buy this game you are doing it for the story most likely. There is a lack of post-game content. I would know because after finishing the game I was going for a 100% completion (since it did not seem like it would take too much effort to do). The worst part is that I could never get specific characters to spawn in the world. This halted me from 100% the game because there are acchievments that require you to battle specific boss characters multiple times.

    Final thoughts: for One Piece fans this is for you. If you enjoy the movies and for some reason want to play through a story simliar to those then you might enjoy this. If you are not a fan of One Piece then you might find some fun here, but I do not recommend.
