    Prinny 2: Dawn of Operation Panties, Dood! may be the most frustrating PSP game you've ever played…but also one beautifully produced.

    This is one of the best platform games in the console, although also one of the hardest.

    If you're looking for a challenge, look no further. Prinny is here, and it will show you the borders of human self-control. A well-balanced platformer with great jokes and lines, massive boss fights. And, well, it has got Prinnies as well. Dood.

    If you can make it past the old-fashioned controls and have the will to face its relentless challenge, Prinny 2 is an operation worth engaging in. Just remember that throwing your PSP out of frustration is a bad idea.

    A delightfully cruel quizmaster. [Issue#106, p.116]

    A serious test of gaming skill wrapped in a very cute and technically accomplished package, fans of old skool arcade action platforming titles will find hours of masochistic entertainment here.

    In the end there are two reasons why someone would purchase this game. The first being that they really like the hack and slash platforming genre. The second being that they really like the goofy sense of humor NIS injects into all of their games.

    Prinny 2: Dawn of Operation Panties, Dood! is certainly not for everyone. It's a challenging platformer with a difficulty level that is geared toward those who are nostalgic for the punishingly difficult platformers from the NES days.

    Prinny 2: Dawn of Operation Panties, Dood! is a solid, capable, entertaining, and super challenging action/platformer, and one that would fit nicely in a PSP collection.

    Good-looking and intelligent game with GSOH but bad temper seeks high-caliber players for many hours of fun. Those with high blood pressure or without significant platforming experience need not apply.

    I can still say there is a lot of fun to be had in Prinny 2. Just be prepared to die...a lot.

    Despite some issues with the jumping, Prinny 2 winds up being a fantastic game overall. If you're a fan of platformers, or of NISA's off the wall humor, pick this up ASAP.

    Prinny 2: Dawn Of Operation Panties, Dood! depends very much on your patience and on the relationship that you have with frustration. Absolutely not perfect, but recommended for reckless gamers.

    This one goes beyond hard, it's even harder than the first one, sadly, the story is not better. The special moves make it a little different,This one goes beyond hard, it's even harder than the first one, sadly, the story is not better. The special moves make it a little different, but being honest, it's supposed to be the same prinnies than the first game, so leaving the mechanics almost the same might be the right choice (at least for me) Full Review »

In a nutshell, prinny 2 is a game which was designed for 0.0001% of the Earth's population, that is the subset of people who are simultaneously young teenagers who enjoy a bad story, childish humor and bad voice acting while your character is moving around, but also players who have beaten ghosts n goblins, ninja gaiden, castlevania are NES power nerds. I fit the second half of this description, so I enjoyed the tight but unforgiving gameplay, but cringed at the story and voice acting had to either completely turn off my sound.
