A pretty alright game for fans of the one piece series and for people who love fighting games. I must admit though that the story feels a little rushed but that doesn't matter too much for it being a fighting game. The amount of characters that are playable are kinda limited and I would absolutely love to be able to play many of the support only characters, but none the less an alright game to purchase when it's on sale.

I'm a pretty big One Piece fan, and I was interested in Burning Blood ever since it was first announced. I'm sure you can imagine my delight when they finally announced they would be releasing a PC version. Well, the excitement kind of dissipated when the launch of the PC version got delayed by like three months, but now it's here and I've finally gotten to spend some time with it.

First, elephant in the room; Yes, this is a straight up console port with resolution and frame rate caps. (1080p 30fps) The fact that it's 30 fps will no doubt be a deal breaker to many prospective buyers. Honestly I'm a pretty big fps snob but I'm hardly bothered with it in this game. I won't say it feels smooth, because it certainly doesn't, but it really doesn't feel like that big of a detriment to this game like it would in say, a first person shooter. I can at least kind of understand the technical reasoning why the FPS cap is in place because of animations and all that, but I'm a little more perplexed on the resolution lock. Even other straight console ports like Storm 4 could be ran at 4K through the config file, but this game's config file doesn't seem to change anything. A shame, because games with this art-style tend to benefit greatly from a higher resolution, even if you're only downsampling.

Other than that, the port has generally been pretty solid for me. There does seem to be a save bug in the game where your progress just randomly gets deleted. Unfortunately I have no idea where the save data for this game is located so backing your saves up seems impossible. I guess we'll just have to hope Bandai doesn't forget about this port and finds a fix.

Now, onto the game itself.

Burning Blood has basically all the essential modes for a fighting game. Training, free battle, online, etc. I haven't gotten a chance to try the Wanted modes yet, but I have completed the story mode. (Paramount War mode I think it was called) And hoo boy, yeah, the story mode in this game is hot garbage. There's basically four campaigns based on different characters during the Marineford arc. Luffy, Whitebeard, Akainu, and Ace. You can complete all these campaigns in like, an hour. The cutscenes are pretty faithful to the source material, but I skipped most because the music accompanying them sucks and in general the cutscenes are really rushed without the build up from the anime and manga. Also, I'm not sure if it's an issue with the port or the localization for this game, but there's quite a few typos that I noticed. It's not a huge deal mind you, but it does make this look like a slapjob of a localization effort.

Graphically, the game looks... fine? I'm not sure if it's just because it's 30fps and I'm not generally used to that, but this game has kind of a motion blur effect that I'm not particularly fond of.

Now, the gameplay. Right, so, after all these years this is probably the closest One Piece has had to a proper fighting game. It's insanely simplistic, but I was actually quite surprised at how many mechanics the game actually has. Granted, most matches will probably be won by whoever is able to trap you in a combo and spamming X the most, but still. It's more complex than I gave it credit for. There's even some cool ties to the series with certain fighters. Ace vs Akainu for example puts Ace at a disadvantage because Akainu's magma overpowers Ace's fire.

There is a pretty solid cast of characters in here too, and more being added later through DLC. I haven't tried everyone yet but some characters are legitimately super fun to play as. You can just feel the power of Whitebeard as you crack the air and send opponents flying, and some characters like Law even have cool gimmicks where all of his specials can only be used inside his "Room" ability. I feel like these are where Burning Blood shines, and where, as a One Piece fan, I can appreciate it the most.

So, verdict time. Here's the thing, One Piece Burning Blood is undoubtedly the best OP game to date in my opinion. (not that that's saying much tbh) But at its current price of $50, it's really hard for me to recommend at that price. (Keep in mind if you didn't pre-order the game, you're already being locked out of some content.) Even with the huge roster of characters, and a surprisingly stable online, I don't think the average person will see much more than 15-20 hours of gameplay from this title, regardless of how big of an OP fan you are. For $50, I would say hell no, wait for a sale. For $25? Then we're talking.

Also, I'd STRONGLY advise people not buy the dlc for this game right now. There are some new characters being added with them, but most are costume swaps for other characters. For half the price of the initial game, it's just not a very good value really. Again, as with the main game, I recommend waiting for a sale. It's going to be 50% by the time the Holiday sales roll around in December, I guarantee you that.

EDIT: If you like the game, enjoy the game! Seriously, I'm not trying to ♥♥♥♥ on anyone's parade here. I just don't think there's enough combat variety or modes to warrant the price tag and the excess of DLC. My advice to potential buyers? Wait until there's a sale.

I'm not quite sure what I anticipated, but this certainly wasn't it. Now, let me start off by saying that I personally can negotiate frame locks. So long as the game is able to achieve consistency, I don't mind if it's 29, 30, or 60 (though the latter is far preferable). This port, on the other hand, could barely achieve the bare minimum - and my hardware's no slouch. Unfortunately, that's just where the problems BEGIN. Some ingenous developer thought it wise to lock Training Mode, VS COM, and Local Multiplayer (if it even exists) behind the story mode, which operates like a Musou game.

On top of that, the PC options aren't just lacking - they're stark; even more bare bones than recent Storm games - and I've yet to find a setting that allows me to achieve the graphic quality captured in the screenshots above. So, you have a frame rate that slurs and stutters, graphics that aren't egregious - but aren't necessarily 'good'... You're probably wondering how the gameplay is, right? Well, it plays a whole lot like JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle (which, if you've played it, is not a compliment). It's a Spectacle Fighter, of course, but with somehow less going on and more emphasis on spam. It almost feels insulting basic, and (almost) every standard combo has ends with a dolly zoom into the character's face and then a knockback. There are clearly some overpowered characters in the roster, too - which doesn't lend itself well to a combat system this simplistic.

As you can see, though, I didn't get the chance to play it for long before changing my mind about this little investment. In my opinion, it's not worth the price tag when Storm 4 is also on Steam and far better. Maybe consider taking your business to that IP instead, if you haven't already!

One Piece Burning Blood didn't have the easiest road coming to Steam.
And neither were the fans of the series having the easiest time dealing with
the game getting ported onto PC and STEAM.

There were lot of things that went wrong, game got delayed,
fans weren't kept informed enough, 30 fps lock etc. But now it's finally,
FINALLY here. So what do I think of the game itself? It's pretty darn great,
if you know what you're in for. Solid gameplay, huge roster of different characters
which most of them you have to unlock by progressing through the storymode
which is okay by the way. Storymode here certainly isn't anything exceptionally great
or bad either. It's what you'd expect from A FIGHTING GAME.
But perhaps not what you would expect from a One Piece game.
Story is told by slideshows of pictures narrated by some dude,
there are some cutscenes here and there which makes going through all the pictures
bit more bareable. There's no free roaming or anything like that, you simply progress
from battle to battle learning more and more about the story and the characters.

There aren't many gamemodes but there certainly are ENOUGH.
You got your basic versus mode both in offline and online, storymode as mentioned
before and then there is something called WANTED VERSUS, it's kind of an odd one
and I haven't gotten into it yet but it's basically like the CHALLENGE mode
most fighting games have. Like I said, that's only a few gamemodes
but it'll surely keep you busy for days to come.
Considering how many playable characters there are with unique movesets.

Personally I'm bit upset over certain characters not being playable in the game
(ARLONG and DON KRIEG) but hey what do you expect? For them to add
every single character from the One Piece universe into the game.
The roster is ALREADY HUGE! So keep that in mind before you get upset overit.

I have to applaud Bandai Namco and Spike Chunsoft for an excellent launch by the way,
even if the game had a rough path coming to STEAM.
The launch itself went very smoothly,
no technical issues with the game (not counting the fps lock) and it's working just as promised. Not all games pull it off this nicely. So well done!

I personally also feel like the pricing of this game is totally on point,
especially with the GOLD EDITION which I highly recommend for you to get.
It includes so much DLC goodies. It basically includes all the DLC there is to this game
with the base game. Base game for me is 50 euros, GOLD EDITION is 75 euros,
so getting all the dlc with the GOLD EDITION would only cost you 25 euros.
Buying them separately though.. Oh boy, that's bit more expensive.
55 euros to get all the DLC separately, so that's half the price.
So totally pick that one out of the two if you KNOW YOU'LL ENJOY THE GAME
AND YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE GETTING. Just a small side note,
you can totally live without any DLC too. It adds few new characters, some UI add-ons, costumes etc. But you're not really skipping out on anything THAT BIG.

Visually the game is also pretty decent, again, nothing exceptional but
it's what you'd imagine a One Piece game to look like.
I also took a look at the options menu, most of the stuff you'd have in a
video-game certainly was there, except.. No difficulty option?
That was bit weird and upsetting.

Maps and backgrounds also look pretty nice, all have a different feel to them. Music is solid, nothing I'd listen to on my own free time but it definitely fits with the game and
the whole atmosphere of One Piece.

Now it's time to rate the things that went right and
the things that went wrong with this game:

THIS IS THE TL:DR VERSION BASICALLY, SO IF YOU CAN'T BE
BOTHERED TO READ THE ENTIRE REVIEW, READ THIS!

PROS:
- Huge Roster
- Interesting fighting mechanics
- No technical issues
- Lots of unlockables
- I like how it looks and sounds visually
- Pricing of the base game and DLC are reasonable to say the least
- each character works very differently all with different abilities
- Cutscenes and superb voice acting make the storymode more bearable.

CONS:
- Annoying camera angle
- had a very rocky path coming to PC and STEAM
- Slideshows with narration get repititive and dull quite fast (just skip them)
- 30 fps lock (doesn't upset me personally but is a downside for majority of people)
- lack of gamemodes
- Could've used more interesting cutscenes with more depth to them

Overall, with all that said.. I still really enjoy the game. It's a fighting game in all honesty.
I did not expect a thrilling joyride with the campaign / storymode.
But I sure as heck am having a fun doing all the fighting.
Just screw the cutscenes and all that pointless talking, just kick some butts.

The game looks great the character designs and costumes are awesome, i really wanted to enjoy this game but there is a very limited move set which makes playing quite stale. Also the fact that getting onto the harder missions of the game the AI just moves spams and your just stuck in a loop of super attacks if you fail to dodge one.

If they can add more moves to the set and make the AI playable this has the makings of a good game.

One Piece Burning Blood, come la maggior parte dei manga game, si rivolge ad un pubblico di fan disposti ad accantonare la pignoleria e il purismo videoludico in favore del semplice rispetto per il brand utilizzato.
Il sistema di combattimento è afflitto da numerosi problemi di bilanciamento, l’intelligenza artificiale andrebbe seriamente rivista insieme ai moveset di moltissimi personaggi e la campagna soddisfa soltanto in parte, senza contare la scarsa qualità del porting PC.
A salvare in corner la produzione Namco ci pensano l’abbondanza di contenuti sotto forma di modalità interessanti e il roster enorme, i quali tuttavia non riescono ad elevarla dalla risicata sufficienza a cui, con sommo dispiacere, siamo costretti a relegarla.

The game has a GREAT direction, unfortunately they didn't quite execute. Before I get in to the meat of this review I want to say I really wanted to love this game, I've played 11 hours so far as of writing this review and thought it through thoroughly.

Battling is insanely quick, it literally takes more time to set up a "free battle" than it does to actually battle. That's not because of the customization of stats / health / resistance / etc but because the controls are painfully awkward and setting up a team each time is a hassle. You can tell the creators realized this so they gave you the ability to make a pre-made "pirate crew" to quick select. Even then though the average battle lasts 60 seconds or so even with full 3v3 while picking a pre-made pirate crew takes ~20 seconds. You quickly grow tired of using the same crew since you win 3v3 battles with 10 or less moves (3 moves to KO each opponent). If you want to do what we are ALL wanting to do and set up a HUGE fantasy custom fight, well that's impossible. You can pit Akainu vs Aokiji and expect to fight forever since both should be "evenly matched" (reference the 10 day fight in the series) but the fight lasts once again less than 60 seconds. It really bothers me there's no way to do something so simple as to increase your stats for a specific fight to have that EPIC BRAWL and immerse yourself in your character. Heck, you can't even change the DIFFICULTY?!?!?

The story mode is severly lacking and it feels like a "tutorial" and less like playing a game. Once again, largely IMPORTANT / MAIN battles last 60 seconds or less and side / non-important battles last 60 seconds or less. I'm fighting the Admirals... I don't want to be able to lose / win the fight in 60 seconds and I want it to be a challenge. As you progress through the story mode everything feels broken, rushed, and mashed together. It doesn't flow comfortably. It would have been so easy to take it in a direction that felt right and not let you "choose path battles" and etc.

They WAY overdid this cut scene and gameplay instagram filter saturation they layer over EVERYTHING. It in no way feels right. All the colors are so saturated and the stupid lines get in the way of the art and it greatly distracts from the game play.

This game honestly plays more like a demo because everything feels rushed, there's no fight customization other than "infinite life" or "infinite burn gauge", and the game has no "goal" and the "Wanted Versus" modes have teams and descriptions of who you are "hunting" that doesn't even make sense because they have such a LIMITED cast. Many of the support players SHOULD have been main players. Vergo, Dragon, Gol D. Roger, Tashigi, the list goes on and on of really key important players people would have loved to play.

I would pay 20$ for this game, MAYBE 30$. I heavily regret paying ~80$ USD. As much as I love One Piece, I can't and won't reccommend this game to anyone.

I honestly love this game a lot. The combat is fluid as well as the cutscenes. I expected the graphics of an anime game to be meh but honestly it is fantastic. If you love One Piece, you are going to absolutley love this game. The only problem i have with this is the fact its very new and not many people have it and i mainly bought this game for online matches but most of the people i matchmake with have bad internet and its horrible to play with. Other than that brilliant, i just have to wait a few months before it gets populated.

BUT 4 TIMES?!?!?!?!?! now this is crazy. i feel as it is a scam for 50 dolards. it feels like an xbox live arcade game and should be priced as such. cant even refund cause i was hoping there was more than what was given. dont buy, look at other games.

Firstly, the main story playthrough is well done. As a one piece fan it served as a good enough retelling of the story without the extra dialogue that you would get in the manga/anime.

That being said, the level of progression you get through the game doesn't come through the story, but the wanted posters on the side. I can admit that the people online are mostly above my level, but thats just because there aren't that many people online to play against.

Side note: online seems to alternate between playing fine and playing really slow(when the fight starts I get the "connecting" message while the fight still goes on, but in slow motion.)

TL;DR, I'd wait until a sale to buy this, whether you're a fan or a die hard fan of one piece. Loading issues during online gameplay. Story is decent, but repetitive.
