Good for fans of One Piece

This game is a very good game! I play it with my 11 yr old nephew, who is an avid fan of One Piece. It does contain some mature themes, such as most of the female characters having skimpy clothing or exaggerated breasts, but if you let your kid watch One Piece, it really isn't a big deal. For the game, it's like Street Fighter or Super Smash Bros, but One Piece. For gamers: The gameplay is a little repetitive, and the story is bland if you don't watch/read one piece.

Is It Any Good?

This fighting game is fun, but it's not appropriate for young kids due to its loads of mature content. If you forgive the convoluted story, the game has many interesting and well-balanced fighters to choose from, so a good chunk of your time will be going through trial and error with each to see what they're capable of during battles. The many tutorials and simplified controls means it's easy to pick up, even for novice gamers. The multiple game modes are worth calling out for the same story being told from different perspective in the Paramount War Mode, as well as the ability to rack up bounties in the Wanted (Versus) Mode, to fight against a sibling or friend beside you in Free Mode, or to log online to battle others in Online Mode. And it's not just for solo fighters, either, as you can join a pirate crew and battle for territory against other crews in Pirate Flag Battle Mode. New downloadable content (DLC) will add even more material to this game.

Along with a hard-to-follow story, the game's artificial intelligence (A.I.) isn't the best. Therefore you can often figure out what the fighters are going to do and easily defeat them in the single-player mode. But overall, fans of fighting games and anime/manga -- and especially those who like the One Piece franchise -- will enjoy working their way through the meaty One Piece: Burning Blood.
