    Taking between five and six hours to complete the main story, Pirates of the Enchiridion isn’t the longest game you’re going to play this year. It’s not even the most original, or most engaging. But it has charm, fun, and character in droves.

    A proper [if short] RPG which perfectly captures the joys of Adventure Time. [October 2018, p.94]

    Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion is a great introduction to turn-based combat for those who need such a thing. Its systems work well and the repainting of typical RPG elements with Adventure Time hues is a joy for fans. Unfortunately, the combat is so easy that for many fans, especially adults, it can all feel like it's mind-numbingly simple. Still, if you're a big enough fan of the franchise and just want another game set in the world of Ooo, this is the best Adventure Time game to date.

    If you’re an avid viewer of Adventure Time, then it’s worth experiencing for the narrative at least, but everyone else should wait for Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion to get a discount.

    A nice game for the lovers of the animated series, partly ruined by a hasty ending and some technical problems.

    I’m not a big fan of licensed game’s because they often feel like a shadow of what they could be instead of following the series or filmI’m not a big fan of licensed game’s because they often feel like a shadow of what they could be instead of following the series or film they’re trying to emulate. Every once in a while though there’s a licenced game that gets it right and I’ve especially found this to be the case when it comes to the Adventure Time series. Don’t get me wrong not all of the Adventure Time game’s have been fantastic but none of them have really been bad either, and I’m pleased to say that this new game Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion is actually pretty good. I’ve always enjoyed the story that has been present in the Adventure Time game’s and thankfully it’s no different with this game. The story is interesting from start to finish and it has some decent humour thrown in for good measure even if some of it does feel a little forced. The setting of the game is perfect for this story and the world in which the game takes place is packed full of charm, which in turn meant exploring it was both fun and enjoyable throughout my time with the game. You’ll also be pleased to know then that the gameplay that accompanies the story is also fun and enjoyable. In fact I would go as far to say that in terms of gameplay it’s probably the best I’ve ever experienced in an Adventure Time game. The main reason why I think the gameplay is the best I’ve ever experienced in an Adventure Time game is because it has a few neat and interesting mechanics. These mechanics when in full flow are absolutely brilliant and they do a great job of keeping things fun and most important of all addictive so in the end it makes carrying on with the game a very easy ordeal. The combat elements in the game have also been well done and I never got bored when I was in combat. You will however have to deal with a few technichal issues every now and then but thankfully none of these issues are anything major so in the end you’re easily able to look past them. When it comes to licensed game’s I expect the presentation side of the game to be as close to the actual product as can be, and I’m pleased to say that they’ve done a great job here. The visuals and sound design both follow the Adventure Time series closely and this makes playing the game both immersive and fun at the same time, which is great. At the end of the day Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion is a game that can be enjoyed by gamers of all ages. It’s very fun and addictive and even though it has a few shortcomings It gets far more right than it gets wrong and it does more than enough to get a thumbs up from me. Expand

    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
