GameSpot writes: "The goofy situations and ridiculous premise do a good job of making this game fun, even though it has a few problems. The overly violent combat is a great contrast to the cartoony visuals. Enemies burst in gooey red chunks when you kill them, painting the cheery landscape with pools of blood. And even though matches sometimes grind to a stalemate, hardly a minute goes by without something crazy and hilarious happening. Magic potions turn everyone nearby into chickens, including yourself; giant bombs destroy walls or a small army; villagers dance tauntingly out of reach of angry warriors, distracting them from their real duties; and all the while, the demure princess demands more cake. Fat Princess has a few balancing issues and online problems, but as long as you have friends to play with and a penchant for gleefully bloody competition, it's a lot of fun".
