The review seems in line from what I've seen from the trailer. I have an additional question: does the game hold any appeal to people who have not watched One Piece before? I have no preconceived feelings about One Piece but simply have not watched it because it is too big of a time commitment. And I currently have not plans to start watching it too. But I like RPGs. Would you recommend the game to people like me? Does it hold up as a standalone product?

Unfortunately for you the game was made for the fans first and foremost. The game expects that you're already familiar with the world, characters and plot to a certain point.

Yeah, the game isn’t openly hostile to newcomers but it’s also hard to say whether the events would really have much impact without prior knowledge. And since it’s a pretty traditional rpg, it’s a long experience to boot.

The caveat has been that it's too easy and takes way long to get to the point

It's certainly an easy game, but then I'm not sure if folks come to JRPGs for the challenge aspect in the first place. I certainly wish the game was a bit more challenging, but it's not a deal-breaker for me.

Didn't they add a hard mode? Unless it's not much of a challenge either.
