Leave your compass behind and join Luffy as he embarks on a brand new action-packed adventure where you can experience the powers of the legendary Gum-Gum fruit to uncover hidden secrets on an original, never-before-seen island.
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 an open-world video game with a great story and an entertaining combat system. The story created by the very creator of the manga, Eichiro Oda, is absorbing and, combined with the visual aspects of the game, you won't be able to stop playing until you finish it. However, sometimes it is too simple and repetitive, especially the secondary missions of "messenger" and the lack of importance of the activities of the crew of Thousand Sunny.
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.
Fans of Monkey D. Luffy and the rest of the Straw Hat Crew will undoubtedly find something to like in World Seeker, but that doesn't hide the game's poor mission structure, the lack of variety and overall dullness. This ship's sunk.
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.
