Is One Piece Odyssey worth the play?

One Piece Odyssey is a JRPG set within the One Piece series and will be a delight for fans of the anime/manga. But at its core, it is still a JRPG, a genre with many fans. This may leave those who are not a fan of One Piece wondering if One Piece Odyssey is worth playing.

Should you play One Piece Odyssey if you are not a fan of the anime?

Whether One Piece Odyssey is worth playing for non-One Piece fans depends on what you are looking for. Those looking for a fun and simple JRPG that doesn't overstay its welcome will be happy with One Piece Odyssey. However, those looking for a large-scale JRPG will find One Piece Odyssey lacking in this regard. Overall, we recommend One Piece Odyssey as it is an easy pickup and play title.

One Piece Odyssey provides a reasonably paced JRPG, around 30 hours, that most players can pick up and enjoy. The world is not fully open-world but features large areas that allow players to explore. You won't feel lost as the game clarifies where to go. Resources, quests, and more are marked on the map and overworld to make it easy for you to interact with them.

Combat is another area where One Piece Odyssey helps its players. The whole affair is relatively easy, mostly due to the combat triangle of Speed, Power, and Technique. Each is strong and weak against another type, meaning you can easily plan which party member to use. This is further enhanced by swapping party orders and members in the middle of a battle.

The combination of One Piece Odyssey's easy-to-use and understandable combat and exploration mechanics allows the world of One Piece to shine. It captures the humor and personality of the series perfectly, thanks to help from Eiichiro Oda, the creator of One Piece. This makes it so that even non-One Piece fans can enjoy the game.
