Mode to unlock more than 40 additional playable swashbucklers. A fan of the new dub which began airing on Toonami in September 2007 will instantly notice the characters voices. Being a big fan of One Piece, I looked forward to this game getting a U. My answer might be biased but this game was very enjoyable. Players must assume the role of their favorite One Piece persona and explore this newly formed In One Piece: Unlimited Adventure, the motley Straw Hat Pirates find themselves stranded in a mysterious land after a massive island rises to the ocean surface from underneath their pirate ship.
Your crystal is a hungry sucker, though, and requires you to feed it various objects before it'll introduce you to the next horizon. It's also quite long, though that's partially due to a lot of dull backtracking. The leveling system was interesting and the boss I love the One piece series. You do find maps, but you might get lost a few times before you do. Although survival mode--in which you mow down enemies against the clock--is barely worth noting, versus mode is actually pretty interesting.
Character models are nicely done, and some of their attacks result in a flurry of colorful particles and other effects. To progress, you use your ever-mysterious crystal to activate globes scattered across the island to gain access to new areas. You can catch bugs or other animals, catch fish, cook food, develop items and fight a horde of enemies and characters from the One Piece universe that you love and enjoy. Should a character fall in combat, never fear: You can replace him or her with someone else, which means that all eight need to bite the dust before it's game over. However, you'd be wise not to neglect them, not just because leveling them up evens out the playing field, but because losing your best characters during boss fights and getting stuck with underdeveloped ones is an easy ticket to a reload. In this mode, you and a buddy spend a limited number of points on a group of fighters, which means that you can take in a whole bunch of underpowered marines or a few powerful bosses, and then take one another on. However, you'll end up spending a lot of time slicing up endlessly respawning enemies in the same environments over and over, just to keep all eight characters ready for the next boss battle--of which there are many.
The game however gets repetitive quick with too much fetch questing, level grinding, and a bare bones two player option but overall it's a fun game. The story doesn't tread new ground, although that ends up working to the game's benefit. But as a rule, everything looks pixelated and washed out, and environments are often unimaginative, with a few notable exceptions, such as a beach with a hulking dinosaur skeleton. One Piece: Unlimited Adventure tackles two challenges, and it does so reasonably well. In the lengthy story mode, you can play as any one of eight Straw Hats at any given time, and switch among them at will by pressing the minus button on the remote. .
However, you can craft items and save your game only at camp, which results in an excessive amount of backtracking. My answer might be biased but this game was very enjoyable. Find a bountiful booty of items, unlock special moves and costumes all in the name of acquiring the ultimate treasure. The adventure could take you 40 or more hours to complete, so if you're a fan of Luffy and company, you'll get your fair share of time to spend with them. Gameplay-wise, the game is pretty fun.
The levels, while not overly massive, are still pretty big, and it can get somewhat easy to get lost. As you play as a particular character, you unlock new moves and level up existing ones. It's likely that you will settle on two or three of them early on to do the bulk of your business, given that several characters feel underpowered at first. In turn, you need to craft various tools to assist you. In other words, expect spoilers galore. More importantly, the crystal causes the gang to relive memories, which are represented by frequent clips from the television series. The combat itself is pretty simple but good fun, and consists of a comfortable blend of button mashing and remote waggling.
For example, if the crystal is hungry for insects, you'll need to create a net to catch them--and before you can do that, you need to collect ingredients to make the net. Luffy and his pirate pals find a mysterious crystal amusingly, this generic mysteriousness is the source of several humorous bits of dialogue from the ever-positive Luffy just prior to crash-landing on an unfamiliar island. As a tip of the hat to rabid fans, this is a rather effective narrative device, but if you're an American One Piece enthusiast, be warned: Many of these clips are from episodes yet to air in the United States. Unfortunately, it's compounded by the actual adventuring. Most likely, you'll be able to overlook the game's faults and enjoy One Piece: Unlimited Adventure for what it is: a cute and fun way to join your favorite pirates on their latest escapade.
Motion-control is used for things like fishing and bug-catching, but also some special attacks as well. Second, it's a somewhat-entertaining action-oriented adventure in it own right, with a light but amusing combat system and some fun boss battles. Sure, there's a ton of repetition here, but the game's aesthetic is so charming and easygoing that it's hard to fault the gameplay for following suit. This is a good game, to be sure, but a bit of monotony moves in early on, only to take up permanent residence as the adventure continues. The title definitely does not lie, it's an adventure on its own. The tedium that results from the grind itself is pretty mild because the combat is so enjoyable. One Piece: Unlimited Adventure is visually unimpressive, though it manages to capture the freewheeling spirit of the popular anime quite well.
It'll get annoying, especially if you urgently have to stop playing. Not all of them, of course, just most. Defeating bosses and other enemies also unlocks them for the other two modes the game offers. And if you aren't, it's still worth a look, at least. That may be because a vast majority of them are sub-par.
