  1. Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    This could be one of those slow-burning games you come back to in between more involving titles. [June 2009, p.81]
  2. Sure, the levels may be insanely hard and somewhat repetitive, but it seems there’s always something bringing you back to the world of Steal Princess. The level editor is also a great reason to return to this game.
  3. Steal Princess is the type of Nintendo DS game that could have really been amazing but, thanks to a number of annoying issues, it begins to wear out its welcome a bit too soon. Still, a handful of fun levels and a great level editor are enough to make this a game you should not dismiss.

    I feel like many of the Atlus faithful will be disappointed that this is the ultimate product they waited through so many delays to finally have the chance to play.
  5. Nintendo Gamer
    The map-making function is a stroke of genius, but this curious title is neither big nor clever enough to steal our heart. [July 2009, p.75]
  6. GamePro
    Steal Princess is a game that has decent, challenging puzzles, but may leave you falling flat into a bottomless pit as a 3D platformer. [Apr 2009, p.80]
  7. Nintendo Power
    A lot of these puzzles are downright cruel. [May 2009, p.89]
  8. If for no other reason, Steal Princess is appealing to puzzle/platformer fans who want to see a daring approach to genre blending. The platforming elements just stop the game from living up to its potential.
  9. Nice concept, but a clumsy realization, with too many issues regarding control scheme and variety.
