Review: Fat Princess

This Sony exclusive sees you play out a 32 player game where your goal is to attack the other team, Penetrate their castle and rescue your princess and carry her back. Sounds easy but the enemy can feed your princess and make it fatter, to the point where it can take 2 people just to carry her!
Pros:
  • A good single player that can also serve as a tutorial
  • Nice bright colorful game with cartoon graphics
  • Simple controls and game style
  • Big selection of maps each with additional enviroment elements such as lava, snow etc
  • Different modes to play including the awesome soccer game (worth the price of admission just for this mode)
  • Depending on your internet connection you can host up to 32 players in one game
  • Bots are added if you don’t fill the room
  • Clan tags and password protected games are at your disposal
  • New DLC that added new character types: Giant where you eat people to keep your strength up, Ninja that can go invisible for short period of time and finally a pirate with a big blunderbuss gun
  • Few roles to choose standard like worker,warrior,priest or bowmen
  • buildings and upgrades are done by being a worker and having to mine metal and chop wood
  • Has the option to put blood in it
  • Great music and sound effects with some funny quotes coming from the players
Cons:
  • Games even with AI can go on for ages, I had one last nearly 2 hours.
  • The AI don’t really help you unless you hit a trigger. So say you get the princess then they will help, Otherwise they just mine, chop and upgrade buildings
  • Standard game modes can get very repetitive due to their nature
  • Game is no longer supported
A PSP version was made but on a lot smaller scale, Still the same great gameplay and has additional story levels to beef the offering up. Worth a look if cheap while online is near redundant.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
