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.
One Piece: World Seeker is a great action game that perfectly encapsulates the feeling of adventure that its source material so lovingly presents. There are some minor technical flaws and somewhat imbalanced combat, but World Seeker is so fun that you’ll hardly notice these issues. It took a while, but World Seeker is the ultimate One Piece game.
One Piece: World Seeker’s only big flaw is that it tends to get a bit fetch-quest-grindy in parts. On the bright side, Luffy can sprint like the best professional athlete who’s on steroids, and you should have unlocked fast travel by the time the game starts to feel this way. That’s it. I can’t find any other fault with this game, except for maybe how I picked up the controller and suddenly, it was 7 hours later, and I almost forgot to put my pet chickens to bed because I was so engrossed in the game.
Overall, despite the occasional combat snag or nagging disappointment I couldn’t play as Franky, One Piece: World Seeker absolutely shocked me with how good it is.
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
Ultimately, One Piece: World Seeker is a super fun game that does the iconic franchise justice and serves as an engrossing and delightful standalone experience.
It may not be perfect, but it's still well worth a look for both longtime fans of One Piece and newcomers who want to see what a proper game based on the series can be.
This charming title provided an interesting story that can become an arc in the series, and is one of the best games based on an anime.

Overall, One Piece: World Seeker captures the entire spirit of the franchise and compresses it into a new and unique story, on an island that you'll enjoy exploring and with characters some of you may have even grown up with.
A diverse open-world adventure, with draw dropping environments, that make traversing fun and seem less like a task, like any great video game does. And a fun, non-canonical, original story that makes quite an experience for fans and players who are deep into the One Piece lore. One Piece: World Seeker was a 12 hour experience, and one I surely will return to.
While it’s rough around the edges, World Seeker easily takes the top spot as the finest One Piece video game.
One Piece World Seeker is a must for every fan of the series. With an exciting story, a visually beautiful environment and a lot of love for the characters, Bandai Namco Entertainment finally shows the lifeblood that was painfully missed in many other manga implementations.

It was almost inevitable that One Piece World Seeker would have some faults, but it's hard not to love the game regardless of them.
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.
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.
While players who are unfamiliar with the franchise may be rather bored and find it lackluster, at least at first (it does pick up a bit further in), fans of the series should find quite a bit to enjoy within the game.
While World Seeker falters in some aspects, great exploration and realization of the world provide for an enjoyable time for One Piece and anime fans alike.
One Piece fans will be satisfied with the return of classic characters and a spectacular set of moves for Luffy, but those in search of a complete, challenging open world adventure have far better options in the market.

World Seeker is a praiseworthy attempt by Bandai to innovate in the games saga that One Piece. But unfortunately, Luffy's last adventure remains in the extensive field of "ahiiii almost"

One Piece: World Seeker marks an interesting foray into the open-world genre for Luffy, borrowing familiar sandbox mechanics from games like Spider-Man and the Arkham series. It's not as polished as those games and can be guilty of incorporating some of the more annoying and overused mechanics of the genre. The original story, however, is very much One Piece and its fun boss fights are pure, over-the-top mayhem. It's not quite Pirate King yet but has potential to be a promising series with some extra polish.
