    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 Adventures is a great entry into the hack-and-slash genre for those who don't necessarily want something sprawling. The lack of deeper mechanics and loot is compensated by a fun combat system that feels good whether you're playing multiplayer or solo.

    Fat Princess Adventures is a fun game to play with friends. It is packed with humor and looks great. Unfortunately it is a bit chaotic with four players, but bores quickly when playing alone. Still it's absolutely worth your money for the quiet months.

    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.

    The follow-up to Fat Princess is not competitive, it is an action RPG like Diablo. The smart class system makes the game interesting, but still you will not put hundreds of hours into it.

    Fat Princess Adventures dispenses with the strategy of the first game, instead focusing on hacking and slashing. If you're looking for a light-hearted, casual Diablo-styled romp that's perfect for the whole family, Fat Princess Adventures is worth gobbling up.

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

    Fat Princess Adventures wants to offer a fun and accessible Diablo-like experience, and it delivers. If you're looking for something like this, it's worth a try.

The humor is also right up my alley! It took me about 7-8 hours to complete but there is a "grind house" mode that changes up the game and allows you to replay some levels for more loot.

    Fat Princess is one of those indie games that can make you fall in love for the genre, so of course I was very excited when they announcedFat Princess is one of those indie games that can make you fall in love for the genre, so of course I was very excited when they announced Adventures that would add a story in this universe, let's see how it end up.

    First the main disappointment of the game, no multiplayer versus mode like the original game (they did add some arena PvP in a update) it was the best thing of the original that allowed it to be played for years, and I was expecting at least a port of the maps on PS4 this will considerably lower the time spend on the game as the story is approximately 6 hours (acceptable length for the price) long and even if there is some replay value there's no much point to it even when the universe of the game is so original and funny and those 6 hours of discovery were a blast to play.

    Technically speaking the game is alright with nice visual quality for an indie game with lots of colours to match this apparently childish universe (there's a lot of blood too, don't buy it for your 5 year old child) and with a steady framerate even when there's a lot of characters on the screen. However there's also some bugs that will need you to re-launch the game.

    Concerning the gameplay Fat Princess Adventures is the most classic hack'n slash where you kill endless number of minions to reach more or less climatic bosses, maybe too simple as the game doesn't provide any challenge and it's best played with friends to maximize the fun (the game allows couch play which is always good in modern videogames), good point however to allow the player to change class at any checkpoints while collecting specific loot for every classes.

    All in all Fat Princess Adventures is nice PSN game with a very original and funny universe but a too simple gameplay and the absence of the famous multiplayer mode stop the game to be an unmissable PSN title, advisable for hack'n slash lovers or gamers looking for a nice coop game.
