One Piece franchise is at its peak right now in terms of the fanbase as the story is in its most interesting phase right now. So, it was understandable that Bandai Namco decided to put in a game in this mix of the worldwide fanbase. So, let us start off by the story of this game. The story is simple and relatable to One Piece universe.
The Strawhats are lured by a treasure to the Prison Island. Upon reaching this island, it turns out it was all a lie and a trap laid down by the World Government marines in order to capture to an ever-growing crew of Strawhat Luffy. Luckily the crew is able to escape from the shackles of the marines but are trapped on the island, and the crew is all separated.
So, Luffy obviously decides to find all his crewmates and meets a character named Jeanne who is the leader of Prison Island. The story, in my opinion, is pretty great. Well, it is a game, so we don’t want an outstanding story, but it shouldn’t be crap. So, the story gets good marks. Now, coming to the gameplay, well at first the gameplay seems good.
The graphics are really cool and the fact that we get to play as the fifth emperor of the seas, Monkey D Luffy is just awesome. But this awesomeness doesn’t last for long.
The first bad part is that we just have to play as Monkey D Luffy and the rest of the crew seem to be stationary as they have no major role in gameplay which is one of the very first disappointing things about this game.
Vinsmoke Sanji and Roronoa Zoro have a huge fanbase, but their fans will have no fun just looking at them in the game. But the worst part of the gameplay is you just have to keep pushing the same button until Monkey D Luffy beats his enemies. Which is so badly repeated that once you start playing Inside half an hour, you all will get so damn bored that you’ll stop playing the game. Well, what further review of the game you want, the game is boring in a nutshell and you’ll regret buying it.
The only good bits about the game overall are a story which ranks as to a good filler arc in the One Piece manga and the fact that you are able to play as Monkey D Luffy. Once you get past those two things in five minutes, the boredom of repetitive gameplay will strike you and immediately after half an hour you will close the game. So, that was our review of One Piece: World Seeker.
