YMMV / One Piece: World Seeker

Go To

  • Enjoy The Story, Skip The Game: A good chunk of reviews praise the story as the most enjoyable part of the game (Considering Eiichiro Oda wrote it, that's not surprising), but getting through the game to reach most of the story points is very monotonous.
  • Goddamned Bats: Long range mooks such as snipers or gunmen who love to take potshots at you while dealing with other opponents.
  • So Okay, It's Average: General consensus praise the game's ambition as an fully open world game from an anime series with a great original story to boot and some nice looking graphics and attention to detail from it's source material. However, it was likewise chided for having Luffy be the only playable character (Especially since other games like Unlimited Adventure, Unlimited Cruise and Unlimited World : Red let you play as the other Straw Hats. This was eventually mitigated with DLC releases, with the first featuring Zoro) and not really giving the player much to do to justify the open world design other then a few side quests that rarely have much variety. Combat was also cited to be too simplistic and not have many options because of this (Luffy doesn't have Gear 2nd moves for some reason and Gear 4th variations like Snake-Man are relegated to a one and done use when you activate them) which can quickly lead to monotony. The fact that it isn't fully voice acted during in-game conversations, with the characters awkwardly pantomiming, was also a sticking point with a minor grumble of not having a English dub either (But then again that's nothing new since Funimation rarely does these outside the shows). Overall it's a playable game and enjoyable, but hampered by not having more content to get the most out of it.
