What makes Luffy so unique is his stretching ability; as a child, he ate a "cursed fruit" from foreign lands that gave him the ability to stretch his body to incredible lengths, but lose his ability to swim or float. His crew includes Nami, the thief/navigator, Roronoa Zolo, the swordsman who uses a three-sword style (two in his hands, one in his mouth), Usopp, the marksman and inventor, and Sanji, the lady-chasing cook. His enemies include Captain Buggy, a clown with the cursed fruit power of separating and controlling parts of his body, Captain Kuro of the Thousand Plans, Don Krieg, with his massive arsenal, the Merman Arlong, and the Navy captain Chaser, with the power of smoke control. Each one of these characters is selectable in this game.
In addition, each character gets characters related to them as "support characters". These characters can be called in for special attacks during the course of a battle. These characters are usually subordinates to the main character (like the captains and their crewmen) or friends who just happen to be less powerful or important (such as Zolo's bounty-hunting buddies, Yosaku and Johnny).
Rather than traditional 2-D fighting games or 3-D fighting games that are essentially 2-D fighting games with sidestepping, One Piece: Grand Battle is a fully 3-D game. The combatants can run in any direction without any real restrictions.Read more ›
The game is a watered down version of the Japanese version "Grand Battle Rush!", the fourth entry in the Grand Battle series, which includes many more characters from further along in the series, as well as costumes found in the Davy Back Fight part of the series.
However, the game is still the game however awful the voiceacting, however much Sanji's cirarette is replaced with a lollipop, and however much a few characters were cut out so that fans of the US version aren't left in the dark. The game plays very similar to "Powerstone" of the days of the Dreamcast, and the new element of summoning friends to help battle is a nice development.
Overall, if you're only familiar with the television series aring in the US then there's no real disappointment, the game plays well and is really a blast no matter what. As for hardcore fans of the Japanese version of the series, you may be better off looking elsewhere for your One Piece related entertainments... like Japan.

Fun graphics; when you press start during the game, the command chart or special attack keys are presented. A couple of characters to unlock and just a good fun game.Published on January 9, 2014 by Benji
This game is not bad. The only problems I have is the awkward turning in the opposite direction then where I was supposed to hit my enemy. Read morePublished on November 5, 2012 by UltimaDragon
This is the greatest game I have ever played although it is a little wierd how the characters look in the game. If you like the tv show you will love this game!Published on September 14, 2005
It was naïve of me to think that maybe, just maybe, they'd include the Japanese language track and 'not' Americanize the characters in this video game like they did in the series. Read morePublished on September 14, 2005 by slodaybreak
