Excerpt: Fat Princess: Fistful of Cake PSP review “Once upon a time in the land of Titania, there lived two Princesses who loved to play together in the Black Forest”, sounds like your ordinary princesses game right? Well, you’d be wrong. Fat Princess for the PSP is a princess game, but with a twist. Fat Princess gives players a chance to rescue their fair maiden in a thrilling campaign that lasts a lengthy amount of time.
Pros: Funny, Good Graphics, Will keep you busy and amused for hours, easy to play, involves cake!
Cons: Games modes are too similar, Unbalanced character classes
Excerpt: When Fat Princess was released on the PlayStation Network title, it seemed to scream "Put me on the PSP!" Well, Sony Santa Monica and SuperVillain Studios have heard the squalling little title and brought it to the PSP. Fat Princess: Fistful of Cake brings capture-the-gluttonous-princess action to the handheld in all its cakey sugary nummy glory.
Excerpt: Fat Princess was an odd little game for the PS3. Teams of 16 players competed against each other in isometric 3D battles across eight maps, capturing the opposition's princess, protecting the princess you've already captured, killing enemies in team deathmatch or taking control points.
Conclusion: En parallèle à son mode solo bien construit mais encore trop court et dynamité par une IA de piètre qualité, Fat Princess : Fistful of Cake oriente une large partie de son attrait sur sa section multijoueur. À l'instar de l'édition PS3, il sera possible de s'adonner à des affrontements en ligne jusqu'à 16 joueurs (8 humains et 8 bots), offrant ainsi un réel intérêt sur le long terme via une meilleure gestion de la stratégie.
Pros: Moteur graphique optimisé, Effets sonores de qualité, Bon système d'action / stratégie, Mode multijoueur en local et en ligne, Contenu solo plus riche que sur PS3
Cons: Manque de classes et d'armes, Intelligence artificielle mal calibrée, Toujours trop court en solo
Summary: Fistful of Cake is what the PSP really needs right now – Sony-exclusive titles with a ton of charm and appeal. This Fat Princess remake features a ton of solid gameplay, unique strategy elements, great presentation and exclusive game content that provides great variety. There are a few technical issues, but interested gamers will really have to take some narrow-minded AI into account.
Conclusion: The campaign will cover the usual princess rescuing modes as well as cover resource gathering and building along the way. It is a nice way to gently ease players into the comical medieval and fast moving world that awaits them. If you can find some PSP owning mates, either head to head or over an internet connection, the multiplayer modes offer an amount of value here.
Pros: Fast paced tightly balanced game-play, putting the emphasis on breaking a single player deadlock on you., Good comical style graphics, Great value add over the PSN version, new modes, new maps, single player story campaign
Cons: Looking for friends to play with, Balance can be at times just too tight, resulting in elongated drawn out encounters., Can be a bit too busy on the small PSP screen, obscuring action and adding to ...., Control frustration
Excerpt: When it launched in mid-2009, Fat Princess was a very enjoyable game marred by some technical hitches related to the online (which were later fixed). It was easy to pick up and play, and charming in the way that it was innocent on the outside and brutal on the inside. Though this is all intact in the PSP edition - Fistful of Cake - there are a few problems which keep it from the greatness of its predecessor.
