One Piece: Pirates' Carnival
15 December 2006
Conclusion: In a party atmosphere, Pirates Carnival will occasionally offer the kind of fun that causes people to absolutely freak when they lose in a tight match. A party atmosphere will probably go a long way in making the game's quirky sense of humor a bit easier to swallow, as well as helping you overlook some of the game's ho-hum minigames and agonizing pacing. However, the minigames lack the depth necessary to keep the game entertaining for very long.
Pros: Multiplayer action has its moments, Extensive incorporation of voice talent.
Cons: Too-simple minigames aren't much fun, even worse when you're playing alone, Ample use of license bogs down pacing, Some minigames repeat too often, Board game victories often feel arbitrary.
Excerpt: The great thing about Japan's entertainment industry is that it quite often seems like the people making it are completely out of their minds. Case in point, Shonen Jump 's One Piece , a manga-turned-anime that is all the rage in Japan and has seen a few not-so-great fighting-game translations in North America.

Excerpt: One Piece: Pirate's Carnival very much fits the visual style of the One Piece cartoon series. Characters like Luffy, Sanji and Chopper definitely look like their television counterparts, and the various scenes that the mini-games take place in go along with the show's general style very well. Whether you are racing against three other opponents or taking part in some rhythm game, you can't help but think about the show when looking at the visuals of Pirate's Carnival .
Excerpt: is one of those games that just screams "bust me out at parties," the sort of game that you can pick up and jump into with little thought to an over-arching storyline or needless expository sequences to explain that the object is just to beat the crap out of something. And in a way, that's what a lot of the Cartoon Network-licensed games of late have done.
Excerpt: Кроме сериала Grand Battle в Японии выходило немало игр по One Piece , но ни одна так и не произвела на нас впечатления. Передышку в череде несерьезных файтингов обеспечивает One Piece: Pirates Carnival , сборник мини-игр а-ля Mario Party , но с участием пиратов Соломенной шляпы. В Pirates Carnival собрано три десятка мини-игр; они рассчитаны на четырех участников и (в теории) должны обеспечить веселый вечер дружной компании отдыхающих анимешников.
