While Code of Princess is a niche title, and most people wouldn't give it a second look (I used to be one of those people), the game has exceeded my expectations and is very fun to play, once you get over how the protagonist dresses. It's a side scrolling beat em up game based on the Guardian Heroes series with RPG elements that allow you to level up your characters (every character, including NPCs and enemies can be unlocked to play) and play and replay many stages. Missions aren't very long, so you can play the game in bite sized chunks.

Pros:

-The gameplay is addicting, and you'll want to replay the stages over and over again to level up over 50 characters (the stronger you get, the faster you'll find yourself beating stages)

-The voice acting is top notch, and I believe it features some very well known VAs such as Laura Bailey. The story is also written wonderfully, with a nice mix of mostly comedy and a bit of drama

-The marriage of the two above points leads to an enjoyable storymode as well as tougher bonus missions and free play

-Online is fun when you do match up with an opponent. Usually you will find yourself playing against the highest ranked players

-All copies of the game seem to come with a soundtrack CD and a short art book

Cons:

-There is slowdown when there is a lot of action on the screen. To be honest, it doesn't bug me at all in single player, but it does make online player a bit frustrating

-The online play is usually dead due to this being a niche title (use online forums such as the Atlus forums to get people to go online in order to play multiplayer if you can't find a match up)

-Some people would feel that the 40 dollar price tag doesn't suit the game, but the price will only rise as the game gets harder to find,as Atlus games usually do

In conclusion, if you enjoy beat em ups and liked the trailers, you'll enjoy this game. If you're on the fence, check out gameplay videos,trailers or even just play Guardian Heroes and see if you want a similar game for your 3DS. At this point in time, Code of Princess is the best game of its genre for the 3DS (barring the DS).

I'd recommend getting it sooner, rather than later, or else you might find yourself paying upwards of 60 dollars for the game.

I like this game a lot. Its quirky and fun. This game is slightly over priced in my opinion but, you can't find this game anywhere else cheaper, at least not the hard copy. It plays sorta slow but I recommend you watch some YouTube reviews of the gane before you buy so you know what youre getting. Keep in mind that a lot of reviews praise it for coming with a soundtrack. This version doesnt come with a soundtrack, which I didnt realize when I purchased it. Overall great game I might buy my friend a copy so we can play multiplayer!

Pretty good game, although it's quite repetitive. It's all about who you should level up and be the most useful to be able to defeat averyone. I usually used only 2 different characters for the whole game, because the others weren't as useful for the missions

It's a decent little side scrolling beat 'em up, although the amount of content feels a little sparse. If you're not down with revealing fantasy style armor, you should probably steer clear.

I was surprised by this game. I expected a role playing game with a bad plot but instead I got a beat em up game (with a mediocre plot). Fun game
