Pirates of the Enchiridion is yet another fun Adventure Time video game. It might not be the most polished product out there and its loading times are borderline insanity-inducing, but I was smiling from beginning to end while playing it and I’m not even an Adventure Time fan to begin with. It’s charming, it has a great sense of humor, its combat is simple yet packed with some neat ideas, and it has enough side content to keep you busy for a few extra hours. If you’re looking for yet another RPG for your Switch, this Adventure Time title ain’t a bad call, believe it or not.
Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion may be an original story written to serve a slice of entertainment to the fans. However, just like many licensed titles before it there just isn’t enough varnish here to provide the magic and originality that the series has shaped over the last decade. The turn-based mechanics, on the other hand, are fittingly simple and less daunting to widen the audience, and the mid-tier price range is about right for a game that’s clearly not afraid to cut corners.
Pirates of the Enchiridion is not the open-world game I was hoping for, but it is on the right track. This is a genuine attempt to create the type of experience the Adventure Time license deserves. It comes up short in many ways, but I still did get to have an adventure in Ooo, even if it was flooded with both water and technical issues.
Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion is a perfect example of a game relying solely on its brand to drive sales. It's buggy, glitchy, and downright unbalanced. There's a little bit for fans to enjoy here, but with abysmal loading times and a half-written story, I can't even recommend it to people who like the show. If you're a fan of Wind Waker, just play through that game again and save yourself the trouble too.
