Luffy's charm really helps sell this game, with the open world being quite beautiful at times. But some issues with the combat, lack of Straw Hats interacting with the world, and the lock on system being a pain during some fights gives this enough flaws that some folks might not be able to ignore.
Overall, One Piece Worldseeker is a game that is best enjoyed as an anime rather than a game. There are just too many factors that make me not want to continue playing it or even dream of playing it. But I'm sure One Piece fans would disagree. The game really has a lot of potential but it seems like it was too shortsighted with its dream.
There’s definitely fun to be had with One Piece World Seeker. I know it may not seem that way after reading through the review, but trust me when I say fans of the anime are going to get a lot of enjoyment out of this title, even if it gets dull rather quickly.
One Piece : World Seeker isn't a great open world. Some gameplay mechanics are too obsolete. The story writen by Oda is good but surrounded by a disappointing gameplay. The world is too empty to deeply involve the player.

Overall, One Piece: World Seeker has some great ideas - and the premise of an open world tie-in for One Piece is brilliant, but in execution the game falls short of being a great experience
Despite having a rich universe of content to draw from, it seems as though it's doomed to be just another average anime-inspired video game.
In some ways, One Piece: World Seeker is an exciting adventure that makes you feel inside an official OVA. Sadly, it has a poor combat system and an outdated mission design that makes you forget everything it does right.

With One Piece: World Seeker it feels like we are finally getting higher quality licensed anime games, but it still has a way to go to be truly incredible or essential, even for fans of the series. Still, if you want to run and rocket with Luffy and the crew, this is a great place to do so.
The developers of One Piece World Seeker had lofty ambitions, but unfortunately, the final product is as shallow as it is frustrating.
Bandai Namco Entertainment sadly continues the trend and publishes another unfinished, low-budget title to make some quick money. Simply put, One Piece World Seeker is needlesly frustrating.

One Piece fans will be able to overlook World Seeker's issues, but those not as big on the series won't miss much by skipping this title.
Despite all that One Piece World Seeker can't do, it's still a solid B game.
One Piece: World Seeker has a lot of great ideas poorly implemented in a game with wasted potential. Looking from the outside, all of its basic mechanics and elements work just fine, but all of them have many issues or don't go any further to offer something unique or remarkable. Yeah, its fun at the beginning but it turns boring and repetitive on the long term.

Fans of the One Piece anime and manga will probably find more to enjoy in the World Seeker experience than most gamers. Once you get past the pretty surface, you’ll find that there isn’t much below it. The story is middling, lacking the excitement and action you would expect from a property like One Piece.
It’s a crying shame that this One Piece game is so one note.
One Piece: World Seeker isn’t the most inventive open world game out there. It’s not the biggest or the most varied in terms of mission design and structure. But it is a delight to play, thanks in part to its wonderful characters, well-written story and absolutely stunning-looking world.
Even as fun as it can be zipping around the island with Luffy's outstretched arms, the numerous issues start to bubble up very quickly and they make One Piece: World Seeker start to feel very monotonous and lackluster way too early into the game.
It looks great and the story is decent, but One Piece World Seeker's 20 hours of one-note combat and repetitive, misleading quests aren't worth suffering through.
A loving piece of fan service that looks and sounds just like the anime, but unfortunately it plays like a bad Xbox 360 era open world game.
World Seeker lacks the detail of contemporary open-world games, but moving around and getting into fights is fun. The story and characters (new and old alike) are engaging all the way to the explosive finale
