Fat Cakes (Fat Princess Review)

No I need not to warn you there is no spoilers in this Experience.

Fat Princess is a fun tactic game that revolves around two teams that fight a capture the flag like style, team deathmatch, hold location match game.
The game is set in a cute and colorful world that you and your enemies will paint red of gore.
Which looks good on both versions.
Although I prefer the PS3 version since its on a big screen and looks just a little bit better.
The PSP version offers more content for the story which the PS3 does not have.
But still I have both versions of Fat Princess wy?
Well I first got the PSP version when I still not had a PS3 and because it more fun alone and with other people in the same room.

But for online it was not that interesting on the PSP for me since i am always on the move with it, although it works fine when i am at home or near a WiFi point.
I was also happy that the PS3 version got co-op after the update and this made it fun as a party game but only for custom games, story and online.
But not for the gladiator stage which I think would have been awesome.

Now for music and sound the game does a nice job and its fun to hear all those soldiers scream in PAIN! Hehehe.
The one thing I really like about this game is its online mode that adds the real challenges to the game unlike the story.
Also i like the new special characters for the PS3.
Although at first they feel overpowered compared to the standard classes they are a nice add-on for Fat Princes and when you play with them or against them you will find their weaknesses.

Now this game is not completely perfect.
Sometimes a bug will happen but I had this problem only two times and only when did it the first time.
I had one bug for the storytelling part that when the next one happen the last frame from the first chapter also appeared.
This was fixed when I restarted the game and i did not had this problem again.
Now the second bug happened when I went online for the first time.
In it i could jump and attack but not move this was of course fixed when I quitted the game and rejoined.
Also no problem for now so far.

The gameplay is easy to learn but still there are some map tricks and tactics that are not explained but you will learn it like I did.
First in the PS3 version's online they will not tell you what a red or blue orb does.
Which sucks when you find out it switches you from teams.
Now back to some last things I love but completely my personal experience.
Is that whatever I do in a match from building or fighting it will support you and your team.
And everyone does a thing to support and switches when needed so that we can win as a team.
Now online this happens also, so that makes me happy but sadly there is no strategy in both when this can be done in online easily.

Now I don't want to make this a book so I am ending here with my closing comment saying that this game is worth a rating of 8.
Even with it flaws and bug this an entertaining game fun for both consoles.
But should be played online.
The Fat Roles DLC makes the PS3 version stand out compared to the PSP version but the story for the PS3 is to short compared to the PSP version.
