Amazon.ca Product Description
Sound the trumpets: the highly-anticipated PlayStationNetwork title Fat Princess is bringing its comical medieval fun to PSP(PlayStationPortable), and with a host of added features. Franticly-paced and strategic, Fat Princess: Fistful of Cake pits two hordes of players against each other in comic medieval battle royale on PSP. The player’s goal is to rescue a beloved princess from the enemy castle. There is a catch, though; the adversary has been feeding her magical cake to make her heavier to carry. Team balance and strategy is crucial in Fat Princess: Fistful of Cake, as players can switch between five different character classes literally at the drop of a hat. The name of the game is cooperation, whether it is flinging another player over the enemy’s walls with a teeterboard, healing him while he charges into battle, or adding muscle to carry the hearty princess to safety.

- Great graphics
- fun gameplay
- Online works very well
- I really like the in-game announcer. He has some funny lines.
- no voice chat. This game is so big on teamwork, but you can't coordinate with your teammates.
- Your AI teammates are not too bright. It's hard to get them focused on a goal you need to meet (both single player and bots online)
I really enjoy this game and would have rated it 5/5 stars if not for those two cons.
The Bad: AI is kind of dumb, may be too light for most RTS fans, light on extras and modes
Real time strategy games are one thing, but when you add the words fat, princess, and cake to the title it becomes something magical. Fat Princess is an RTS that really makes you adrenaline pump. You have different classes such as warriors, wizards, priests, workers etc. but call this game an RTS lite because the game is all about action.
The main story consists of 15 levels and each one is different and super fun with a very interesting fairly tale story that is being told. You slowly unlock different units to use, but how you use them is key. Each unit can be upgraded to use different weapons such as the warrior can be upgraded to use a halberd, the archer can use a gun, and the worker can use bombs to blow up structures. Your main goal is usually getting the enemies princess into your dungeon, so think of this as capture the flag. You can feed your princess cake to fatten her up so it is harder for the enemy to take her away. The enemy will also try to build ladders near your castle or find shortcuts so watch out.
Workers have two different resources for upgraded "Hat Machines" or completing different objectives that require them. You can gather wood and metal by hacking away at it and carrying it to your base. Most resources will grow back after a few minutes, but its a fight for the best areas. You can capture command posts as well to keep a firm hold on the map.
But like I said the game is about action so unit building and all the resource gathering is faster. Each unit is AI controlled and you can call some guys to fight by your side and help you escort the princess. You can call an archer, warrior, and a priest who will have hearts under them and you can move faster. If the enemies princess is to fat, however, you can't carry her at all.
The fun part about Fat Princess is how the tide of the battle does a tug of war and can be really intense. Choosing what to do is up to you. Do you want to help heal everyone as priest? Help upgrade the hat machines? Do you want to charge right into the castle yourself and get the princess? While the AI controlled guys may have some issues going online via infrastructure is the icing on this cake. Playing against real people can be a blast since they pretty much know what to do.
Besides all this you can customize the unit of your people and do skirmishes, but other than that the game is light on modes and extras. Fat Princess is chalk full of internet quotes, and game related nuances so there are laughs all around. Fat Princess is a wonderful light RTS for pick up and play action. Plus the game looks and sounds great on the PSP and doesn't lose anything from the PS3 port.
You have 6 classes (well 5 classes and 1 lack of class). You start off with no class, and you can change classes to Warrior, Archer, Worker, Mage and Healer just by wearing hats. Warriors take out doors and kill pretty easy at close range. Archers tend to take out anything living from a distance, workers can bomb buildings and fortify things, healers heal players and mages.... they mage? The teams are pretty big and if not populated by players, they're populated with bots. The bots seem pretty dumb and straight forward, but they'll adapt. If you kill them they'll come back and hunt you down. So if you're an archer that keeps sniping people the bots will come back for your head.
Gameplay couldn't be simpler. Pick up stuff (like hats and princess's) with the O button, attack with the square button, hold the attack to charge it, auto target with the L1, change weapons with the triangle, jump with the X button and its really just that simple.
Why is this 'fat princess' you may ask? Your workers can feed the captive princess cake, so she gets fatter and becomes more of a burden to steal and carry away. Over time she will slim down to make her easy to carry. Its all about fortification. Since this is a tower defense game, your workers can efficiently gather lumber to fortify outposts (towers) and build doors to your castle.
There are extra modes for solo play, such as a survival mode called 'gladiate' that sends waves of enemies after you. For you single players out there, the game has a story mode that has you playing with bots map after map. Its a very nice practice worth playing again and again. Story mode isn't any different than a normal match, but its just solo play with bots.
With the almost top down perspective you can see a lot of map around you. This adds to the fun when you're running with the princess. You can see where you're going AND you can see the enemies chasing you. This will give you a buzz. A lot of this is quick fun that gives you a buzz. An addictive buzz of getting the princess, killing people, taking back a captive princess. Its just a great time that lets you do what you want to. Even customize your character.
Please buy this cheap game. Its worth it. Buy it for PS3 or especially PSP which lacks the games that PS3 does.
