GameSpot: Fat Princess Review

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".

don't you have any games to play on your xbox?? you seem to spend all your life on ps3 news?? any reason why??

i don't want other people explanations of why you spend all you life in ps3 news - i want your own explanation why you spend so much time in ps3 news.

raztad3415d ago (Edited 3415d ago )

How Netsu knows this is a good score? Do you really own a PS3? Have played the game?

You should be playing "Splosion Man" not commenting about game you dont know about.

@Netsu bellow

LOL. Natsu dont get mad. LOL.

It's good you are interested in PS3 news, but dude it's time for you to get one and play the games. Yeah 7.5 is a good score but many people that actually have played FP dont agree about it.

Natsu X FairyTail3415d ago (Edited 3415d ago )

I spend time in the PS3 news because I am intersted in PS3 news DUH!
I dont own a PS3 but I happen to have what we called Friends and family and neighboors who have some. get a clue

and yeah I'Ve been playing some splosia Man and its a good game

and Yeah I Think that 7.5/10 is a good score. Not GREAT but good .

and wtf @ rasta head when you guys are saying Great score at game you havent played Im not up there to say have you played it!!!


A_Little_Girl3415d ago

yeah, its a good score, and its another wonderful summer game for us ps3 owners.

leila013415d ago (Edited 3415d ago )

wow, so many emo suicide kids in here

Cold 20003415d ago (Edited 3415d ago )

Lets at least wait for some more reviews.

anh_duong3415d ago (Edited 3415d ago )


it isn't because you are a troll?? ;)

enjoy the games. stop hating on games console. sony didn't do anything to you.. you are an adult now... only little kids in this forum troll news...

Natsu X FairyTail3415d ago (Edited 3415d ago )

Cold if you checked my comment history you would see that I've never talked against a PS3 game itself because I do like PS3 games.


anh_duong3415d ago (Edited 3415d ago )

fairy, i didn't change my statement - i added to it... wasn't an edit just an addition..

remember this comment:

"watch the PS3 turd say yeah this is great while they complain all the time about DLC on xbox 360 that they dont even care about"

this was a first comment in a piece of news that was just purely ps3 related..

seriously, you really need to look at why you are doing this.. it's not normal... it really isn't.. it is seriously weird for someone to troll every piece of ps3 news.. you are not a gamer... you are the 1% of the population who are fanatical about a cause that has no real meaning and adds nothing to your life..

you noticed i never even bothered to disagree with you because i doubt you can ever change and be a gamer instead of a troll.

Natsu X FairyTail3415d ago (Edited 3415d ago )

1st : I said Nice edit to Cold

2nd: I said that they'll be happy over Uncharted DLC but when a DLC is announced for xbox they're saying crap stuff.

did I say anything Against Uncharted itself?

NO !

why din't I say something Against Uncharted?

because I actually like Uncharted .

raztad3415d ago (Edited 3415d ago )


I dont understand very well your post.

a) People complaining about score are bellow

b) No one expect every game to be 10/10 but among all the games coming out, those scoring 7.5/10 usually are overlooked.

divideby03415d ago

amazing...dont own a PS3 but has to comment on something which he has no hands on experience....another to the ignore list

ActionBastard3415d ago

From "good score" to "I don't own a PS3" (psst, That means he hasn't played the game) and yet you continue to yap. The game is better than scored, but ultimately scores mean nothing. If a game is good it's good. That goes for Shatter too. Now run along and videos of Uncharted Complex.

Why dis3415d ago

WTF? ps3 fanboys talking about somebody not owning something and bashing it.

Aquanox3415d ago

Exclusive reviews always get inflated ratings. IGN had it for the US with Resistance 2 and this one, and see how blatantly overrated both scores were.

As these deals become more often, IGN earns more money but loses invaluable credibility.

so wait, its a lot of fun, but it manages to get a 7.5? ROFL at Gamespot, what is it, too much variety again?

i cant wait till the ACiT review on this fail site. its going to be 2007 all over again.

I can understand if it was an 8, but a 7.5? LOL

ngg123453416d ago

Because that is what it deserves right now. There are connection problems, and other issues a patch should fix. Eurogamer was basically insulting the users, and other silly stuff. This review at least tells the facts what it is atm.

Boody-Bandit3416d ago (Edited 3415d ago )

Did they tell the facts when Gears of War 2 released with all it's online issues?

hmmm let me check.
Gamespot Gears of War 2 score 90.
The Bad:
* Fiddly controls in vehicular sections
* Too many unresolved plot strands.
Online issues not mentioned.

I am only bringing up Gears of War 2 because it is a blockbuster title which I am a huge fan of and it had some of the worst online problems this generation yet it got a pass from nearly every reviewer that reviewed it. Funny how that is conveniently overlooked.

My biggest problem with the gaming media as a whole is their lack of consistency.

na2ru13415d ago

You are not going to get a response with a comment like that from N4G by those who still believe the scores reflect GeoW2's quality. Instead, they will take your comment into account, go to another article, perhaps the next day or two and point the finger at every one on the other boat and yell, "always claiming bias wah wah".

But I gave up on many circumstances.

"Too much variety" always cracks me up.

leila013415d ago

Let's all call BIAS on every single web site that don't share our own opinions.

In short: Too Much Variety. /sarcasm ;)


...but also not as good as IGN. Ok...its their opinion. I had the most fun two years ago with a game they tougth only deserved 7.5 ( R & C: FTOD) so this is good for me. Anyway I see lately as if it is 2007 all over again. The negative articles, the reviews, the fanboys war...dejavu!! Also to me the game deserves the 9 IGN gave it. Ive played worse games with much better scores than a 7.5. Try and play it before judging by other's biased opinon.


ngg123453416d ago

Eurogamer was a terrible review because it was misleading. It basically didn't tell about the connectivity problems (which are by far the biggest problem with the game). I mean gamespot reviewed this face value for what it is right now. Which is what you should be doing.

Boody-Bandit3416d ago (Edited 3415d ago )

And what they should be doing with every game. Gamespot, as well as the rest of the gaming media, needs to learn consistency and not pick and choose which games to thoroughly critique.

LightofDarkness3415d ago

Wasn't the Gears 2 problem based around the fact that the online was not functional over XBL at the time of writing so they had to rely on past experience? I think Gears 2 is WHY they now take more pre-cautions reviewing an online game/online component until they've logged a good few hours into it over standard channels.

I agree very much with this review. Eurogamer's score was a bit harsh and the author was a tad condescending in his language. He could've made his point with a bit less snobbery, although he made valid points. This review focuses on my main concern, which is the on-line connectivity issues.

mephman3415d ago (Edited 3415d ago )

Have you actually played the game?

raztad3415d ago (Edited 3415d ago )

My only question is:

Its widely known a patch is in works to solve connectivity issues. The review will reflect that? I doubt it.

EDIt: I watched the review. LOL. So funny it got me pumped for FP. This game looks so fun, I'm gonna get it as soon as the patch is here.

BTW regarding the score, we need to get used to it, PS3 exclusive are judged by higher standards. That 7.5 means a 9 on other platform.
