This Friday will see the light One Piece Odysseya JRPG with interesting concepts and a novelty story, but that stays on the shore. The story created by Eiichiro Oda meets 25 years and together with ILCA and Bandai Namco we are presented with a highly anticipated product. For this reason, expectations are very high and, from what we have been able to prove, they are far from reality. For all the curious or those who are not very determined to spend their money on the full game, they have a demo that can download and verify part of what we underlined.
One Piece Odyssey and the superfluous adventure
It should be noted that we will not make a global review of the final game, but we will focus on all those key basic sections. The user must be prepared for what he is going to find and that is that, at least, part of the story is new. Luffy, Zoro, Nami and company They are surprised on the high seas by something unexpected and end up shipwrecked in the Island of Waford.
A mysterious island where two unknown characters appear: Lim and Aido. The young Lim snatches to all your powers and the Straw Hat crew must help him. The characters, in addition to becoming their friends, will have to travel through past memories and relive moments from the original series. arches like those of Arabasta, Water Seven, Marineford and Dressrosa they are present.
One thing to keep in mind is that all those characters who have already died in the main plot here do they are alive. Therefore, prepare your body, because there are very emotional moments in this game. It is not negligible that Eiichiro Oda has had a lot of weight in history and it shows. The negatives are clear. if you are not a fan from One Piece or you want a good JRPG get away from here.
Wrong time for One Piece Odyssey
The supposed open world only provides us with the odd chest of little relevance far from the route to follow. This is very linear and almost takes us by the hand to move forward. The missions high schools They are very brief and practically as a messenger to those who only save the dialogues (these are very original and well worked). One Piece Odyssey is based on a very Dragon Quest nails on animations very pretty, but without more. The enemies are very repetitive, even the most powerful. The fighting method becomes repetitive too soon, although, to a certain extent, it is saved by the interactions among our own characters. Some questions that make the generalized opinions of the majority who have tried something of the game very clear.
It seems that this long-awaited product from ILCA is a couple of generations late. Compared to benchmark JRPGs he falls far behind in practically everything. For this reason, as we highlight, that only if you are very fans of One Piece or you are starting out in this genre will it leave you satisfied. The puzzles are not very challenging and the settings feel like you are very empty.
But, as we tell you, this game refers to the phrase “coffee for very coffee growers”, so it will function very well, that’s for sure, for all your target audiences. The interaction between characters, the soundtrack for the most part, the scenarios One Piece originalthe animations, the dubbing voices Japanese and the dialogues are great. Therefore, if you want to give it a try, the demo can clear your doubts and you have it available to download since last January 10.
