    A good platform-RPG, through its difficulty needs some balancing. Perfect for the fans of the series.

    In the final computation, the production manages to deeply respect the aesthetic and narrative canons of the original animated series, bringing players to discover an unpublished story but in which it will be easy to recognize the most iconic characters created by the good Pendleton Word in the now distant 2010.

    One of the best games based on the Cartoon Network show, thanks to the faithful representation of the series' charming world and characters. While quite derivative, with features lifted from The Legend of Zelda series in particular, the game developed by Climax Studios can be a fun experience, granted the player manages to overcome some frustration due to balancing and design issues.

    Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion is an enjoyable sail along the high seas that is ultimately hampered by being rough around the edges. The battle system and story are an enjoyable experience, but absurdly long load times, frame rate stuttering, a clunky menu system, and a poorly developed upgrade system hamper the experience. It's still an entertaining experience, and fans of the show will likely love it, but those looking for an incredible RPG experience here might be left a little disappointed in its squandered potential.

    Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion falls short of being a great game and lands squarely in the land of being okay. Despite its flaws it is an enjoyable RPG that would be a great entry point to the genre for younger children who might be a little put off by the more complex systems in other games.

    While it feels like Adventure Time, the adventure isn’t one that many will want to go on.

    Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion
    More like Adventures Creed
    Just kidding, Pirates of the Enchiridion is a 10 hour long open world
    Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion
    More like Adventures Creed
    Just kidding, Pirates of the Enchiridion is a 10 hour long open world turn based rpg mixed with a bit of platforming and sea shanties that takes place in the world of adventure time, you wake up to find the world flooded and you set sail to get to the bottom of this…
    This game is lot of different things all in one, theres ships and though limited there are sea shanties with familiar melodies reminding me a bit of assassins creed 4, theres elemental based turn based combat sortve like pokemon, youre running sailing to different territories, running around their living areas, hopping gaps, interacting with chests, doing side missions reminding me of dare I say it.. ni no kuni…
    pirates of the enchiridion borrows from all of these great franchises and still manages to feel like its own thing, it feels more than just a cash grab licensed game.. that being said does it live up to those franchises? Not even close..
    but I still had fun..
    The problem with adventure time pirates of the enchiridion is that despite its 10 hour length to obtain this games platinum trophy.. by the way this game has a great trophy list..
    This game just starts to feel like a drag to get through towards the end if you are setting out to see everything, if youre exploring the worlds, collecting the quests... finding the penguins and little candy dudes for mission and trophy progress… and that isn’t because the world isn’t fun to explore.. It is...
    as you progress through the game you’ll gain new party member like in ni no kuni and they all play a role in accessing different areas of the world..
    I thoroughly enjoyed exploring this game for its secrets...
    it’s just that this games main gameplay focus... its combat just isn’t fun...
    it has the formula, there are weakness and immunities, there are status effects, there are consumable items and power points, there are special moves you find in chests and you can level them up with the cash you find and earn, you can also use this cash to increase your stats to balance them out for more of your play style… each character has their own bonus special attack with a meter that’s filled differently for all 4 characters, such as doing damage or taking damage… all of these things are great
    but when it comes down to it.. battles are just way too slow, leveling is way too slow, cash is rewarded at too low of a rate, there are annoying pickles and fairies healing and reviving each other to keep the battles going on even longer.. it just gets old super quick…
    don’t get me wrong at first things are challenge, I would have to actually think and strategize, but eventually I found myself just going through the motions.. Boss battles no longer worried me...
    The thing ni no kuni does so great for example is that sure ever battle feels like a threat… but they’re all swift except for its boss battles.. Those are the ones that drag out and really demand strategy and therefore the game stays satisfying throughout… there are glimpses of these moments here, but they’re just glimpses... every battle ends up being a drag by this games end even more so than its boss battles and that’s a shame
    that’s not to say you should just turn away and not play this game because the rest of it is great, exploring the world and completing its quests is so fun…
    it just.. Picture a pokemon game where it’s just a bunch of pidgeys and your starter pokemon never evolves...
    you can stay out of the grass if you don’t care about trophies... but if you do youre in for a bit of a grind..
    Performance wise I only ran into a couple of random hiccups near the game’s final area where I couldn’t bring up the map or pause screen but this was fixed by closing out the game and reopening it.. The gem will also chick at times while transitioning into new areas…
    otherwise this is a surprisingly enjoyable game... I was surprised by it, sure the combat is no fun, but it’s passible... the real star of the show is its world and exploring it... hunting down those trophies and achievements...
    I give Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion
    a 6.5/10
