One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 Review
"I'm going to become King of the Pirates!"
As a big fan of the Warriors series, and a relatively new fan of One Piece, I really enjoyed my time with the game. It's over-the-top, much like the show, and brimming with content, much like other titles in the Warriors series. Outside of its dedication to sticking to the canon storyline of the show, it really is Dynasty Warriors with a One Piece skin more or less. For those with an aversion to the Warriors games, Pirate Warriors 3 does little to convince you otherwise.
Those who have previously played the non-canon Pirate Warriors 2 and even the first game, will be treated with some new playable characters, such as the flamboyant Ivankov, Sabo, Magellan and even Red Haired Shanks.
It might not have the same emotional impact as the show, and you certainly won't get the same characterization, it does a fairly decent job at recapping the major plot points to either get you up to speed, or simply allow you to relive the moments you've previously watched or read in the manga.
