YHJ5The game itself is rather nice, with pleasing graphics and interesting music. However, the Jump controls are rather lazy, and really kills the game. Once you jump, you can't change directions. Since the prinny dies the moment it gets touched by almost anything in the game, it's just unfair. Hit an enemy? Dead. Landed on a statue? Dead. The difficulty is quite high, but one of the things that make these kinds of games fair is missing. POWER UPS. There is not a single power up at all. Besides that, the prinny only has one attack. It was a game with lots of potencial. Another thing to slap it in the face is it's length. With less than 15 levels in the game, it's very very short. In the end, it's a game with a lot of interesting promises, but everything just feels lazy, and incomplete. If you really want to find a good old-school platformer, go for Henry Hatsworth in a puzzling adventure for the DS. Much better.… Full Review »

Truly one of the best PSP games I have played.… Full Review »
10This game is pretty challenging, even in standard mode. Jumping seems to be a little bit awkward, but that's what you get for being a Prinny. Some of the bosses in this 2d platformer are pretty tough and unforgiving, but satisfaction guaranteed if you manage to beat the boss, even if you lost 50 prinnies in the battlefield. Luckily, the game gives you an army of 1000 Prinny soldiers at the beginning, so you probably have at least a hand full of them in the end. There are 2 game difficulties here: Standard and Hell's Finest. I chose the first, because I am a n00b. Standard mode gives you 3 hit points, while Hell's Finest is mocking you with a one-hit kill. I bought this game for 10 euro's (in the Dutch PSN store), and Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero is one of the best PSP games I have ever played. And to answer Prinny's question: "Yes, you can really be the hero, dood!"… Full Review »
