Excerpt: When I reviewed the original One Piece: Pirate Warriors on PS3 , I didn't come away from the experience impressed. The QTEs and finger-purpling button mashing combat just felt like Dynasty Warriors with a fresh coat of anime paint, and not being a fan of the One Piece franchise didn't help much either. Its been a little while, and now we have One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 on the PS3. Does this one fare any better than the original? The answer is... complicated.
Conclusion: I can happily say that even if you aren’t a fan of the series you will enjoy this game -- granted you enjoy Dynasty Warriors-style beat 'em ups. I know I did. So much, in fact, that I would be interested in watching the TV show. If you are a huge fan of the series then I’m going to assume that you will love the game as well. It has something for everyone and that is what makes a great game in my opinion.
Excerpt: Perhaps the greatest advantage of the move to digital is a reduction in risk costs associated with localization. Without production, shipping, and a reduced retail cut, releasing on a digital marketplace like Steam or PSN exclusively allows for various titles that we may otherwise have not seen in this era of explosively overzealous budgets.
Review: One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 (Sony PlayStation 3)
24 September 2013
Summary: One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 is both more of the same and a major departure. It eschews the unique single player experience that focused on Luffy, and offers a whole lot more Dynasty Warriors style gameplay. There are three times as many characters, the levels are bigger, and more options for online play. Depending on which aspect of the first game you liked, you’ll either love the changes or hate them entirely.
Conclusion: Small issues aside, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 succeeds by working with the hand it’s been dealt. By adding choice, through characters and Crew Skills, and trimming the level length, what’s left is a focused experience that leaves you feeling like a heroic participant rather then a fatigued shell struggling to find purpose, wishing your time with the game was over rather then looking for more.
Excerpt: One MORE Piece. It can only be assumed that to most Americans, and most gamers at that, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 is one condensed power punch of culture shock. Is there anything else that's more representative of what Japanese people deem to be popular? It's based off Shonen Jump 's One Piece , a Japanese animation that started 16 years ago and is still going strong in both manga and anime episodes.
Excerpt: One Piece has sauntered its way back into the Family Friendly Gaming Nation. Will it leave this review in one piece? Read on to find out. One Piece Pirate Warriors 2 on the Playstation 3 is a mixture of the Dynasty Warrior game play style and the One Piece anime universe.
