  • Summary: [Playstation Network] Rescue your beloved princess through teamwork in this comic medieval battle royale. There's a catch, though - the other team has been feeding her magical cake, making her harder to escort back to your castle. Choose from five distinct character classes and switch at any time to best help your team. Charge head first into battle, heal teammates as they break through enemy lines, and upgrade your team and the castle defenses as you work with your team to save your princess. Online Multiplayer - Face off in online matches with up to 32 players and in-game voice chat. Unique and Varied Maps - Enjoy eight comical and challenging maps, plus two special arena-style single-player levels. Five Character Classes - Change between Worker, Warrior, Ranger, Mage and Priest simply by picking up a new hat. Unique Game Modes - After the seven-chapter single-player campaign, enjoy custom games of Rescue the Princess, Snatch 'n Grab, Team Deathmatch and Invasion. Customizable Avatars - Create your own personal avatar before you charge into battle, and unlock new customization options during gameplay. [SCEA] Expand

  1. Fat Princess presents a captivating world, an absurd premise and classic gameplay in a very well balanced and original game that is both amazingly funny and fun to play.
  2. 90
    One of the most original downloadable games to date. The amount of strategy that exists is plentiful and there is more than enough content included to justify the purchase.
  3. Either single player or online, Fat Princess delivers excellence in every way. The single player is quite short and should be looked at more like a tutorial for the very deep multiplayer aspect. If there were one thing I’d like to see added to Fat Princess it would be split-screen local multiplayer, other than that I can’t complain.
  4. Innovation has always been one of the cornerstones of the gaming industry, and Titan Studios deserves a round of applause for going back to the basics with this game, adding a nice little twist with the whole princess concept, and bringing us one of the better downloadable games of the year.
  5. 80
    The multiplayer mode is the key, though. Without that, there isn't much here for a single player to enjoy. Playing against bots is okay, and the survival and (quite clever) soccer game are fun diversions, but nothing beats running around a map full of 32 real players.
  6. While the game does have its flaws in poor AI and the sometimes never ending games, the colourful comical gore ridden game, as well as the catchy game title, did manage to grab my attention.
  7. 60
    Ultimately, Fat Princess is a victim of its own focused creativity. It may have visual appeal and at first seem to offer a lot but it doesn’t take long to realise proceedings are rather dull; matches last a ridiculously long amount of time. In tiny bursts there’s definitely some appeal. It’s just ever so short. [Issue#183, p.80]

    This is the best PSN game made. The graphics are awesome and the gameplay mechanics are fantastic. The story gets the job dome, but its the multiplayer that will keep you playing for hours and hours. This is a must buy. Expand

    Along with Castle Crashers, this is probably one of the greatest PSN games yet. AI is the only way to go though. Online multiplayer is a joke. Graphics are cartoony and at the same time adult. Blood is a red puddle oozing out of your character and gore are red clumps flying out of your chest. Although it's rated T because of that, you can turn blood into a pile of toys for less mature players. A must have. Expand

    HOW I RATE: 10-9 score: perfect or near-perfect don't exist; 8 score: one of the best games ever. Top score; 7-6 score: great but not one of the best; 5-below score: serious gameplay flaws.
    ===========
    I'd almost give it an 8 if it hadn't been for it's kinda shallow gameplay.

    Crude cartoonish graphics makes Fat Princess an adorable yet compelling game. From the nice strategy of capturing the fatty to the struggle to get to the other side, Fat Princess is a worth checking out tittle. Expand

    Un juego pasable, para mas bien pasar estúpidamente el tiempo, no me gusto nada, al principio engancha, pero a los 10 minutos te dan ganas de lanzar el disco por la ventana y quemar su caja (si no fuera virtual)vamos, que ni de coña lo comapraria en mi vida, tire el dinero, no lo recomiendo, gastaros el dinero sabiamente y no es esto...prefiero donar el dinero o tirarlo a la basura, hasta las ratas sacarían mas provecho xD Expand
