    Despite being a complete departure from the original, Fat Princess Adventures is worthy of a look. Players who have never played the original games may find this a great way to get into the series.

    Fat Princess was subversive, politically incorrect and unexpectedly complex in its strategy and depth. Fat Princess Adventures trades a little of that depth for a more straightforward, action RPG-focused design.

    It is not the most varied nor ambitious production, but it does manage to entertain, especially when playing with friends.

    An interesting new twist for one of those "under the radar" Sony´s IPs. A definitive enjoyable experience when several players are in together.

    Fat Princess Adventures still has the same humor and charm of the original, but without the PvP multiplayer it feels like a step back. The campaign is interesting enough, but feels pretty shallow compared to other games, and doesn't do enough to draw players in for the entire time.

    The humour is still there and works fine, but when it comes to gameplay, the shift in the formula from team based multiplayer to cooperative hack'n'slash doesn't fully work.

    Too simple for grown-ups, yet full of 'humour' unsuitable for kids, this franchise resurrection finds itself stuck in a saccharine no man's land. [Feb 2016, p.87]

My girlfriend and I played through the entire thing in two nights and wish there was more content. The game is beautiful with an amazing soundtrack, especially that epic final boss music. I feel the game is easily worth more than the $20 price tag and hope they release more installments in the future! Expand

It is a really good party game to just button smash and not really have to focus too much on the actual game. But you can really get into it if you want to. My only complaint is that the princess is way to fat and ugly. Expand

    So I've been playing this game for a few hours and at its core, it is definitely a fun game. It exudes charm, and those who have been lookingSo I've been playing this game for a few hours and at its core, it is definitely a fun game. It exudes charm, and those who have been looking to jump back into the Fat Princess universe, solely for the universe, will find tons to appreciate here. This, however, is a perfect example of beauty being skin deep.

    This game plays very much like a Diablo-esc style game, in which you are trying to gather new gear dropped from "Elite" enemies and found in chests. You can upgrade that gear, though I have found that at lower levels, it feels almost like a waste of money to even try, as your gear will be no-doubt trumped when you enter the following chapter. To be fair, I am only in chapter 3, and have only played alone, so I cannot attest for the multiplayer, but the game as a whole just feels empty. You will encounter a ton of houses and caves that make you say, "I wonder what's in there?" only to find out that you can't actually go in, even if the cave mouth is gigantic and has nothing blocking its entrance.

    It's fun to play for a few hours, though if you're a trophy hunter, this game will certainly take many, many more hours than just a few. If you have a friend to play it with, check it out, but I would say it's worth closer to $10 than $20. It's funny and cute, but when you start hearing the same one-liners 30 times in as many minutes, you kind of just want to turn off the dialogue (which you can't do unless you mute dialogue as a whole, which hurts whatever story you are trying to pull from this).

    Graphics: 8/10
    Sound: 6/10
    Replayability: 6/10
    Overall: 6/10

    I bought this game thinking I was going to have a real blast with its 4-players couch-coop mode.
    The game can even be kid friendly if you turn off blood&gore in the options.

    Unfortunately, it gets boring fast. Don't go buy it thinking that it will be like Diablo III only with bright and cartoonish graphics or you're up for a major disappointment.. No unlockable skills, no character progression, the combat is repetitive and the loot system is boring and overly simplistic.

    The game can be enjoyable in short bursts but its lack of depth makes it a forgettable experience.
