Prinny: Can I Really be the hero? PSP Review


Disgaea spinoff, Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero? is proof that you should never judge a book by its cover way of thought. Its penguin-like stars and cartoon exterior perhaps suggest that this is going to be great for kids, possessing a gentle...

Actually, on second thought, I think even God Almighty himself would pull his beard out with frustration whilst playing this game.

Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero?


It's not just Nippon Ichi fans who will love Prinny. Masochists will too. For them, the endless death and difficult platforming will taste as good as a vanilla milkshake on a summer's day.

Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero?


If a platform game wants to succeed you'd think the first thing it needs to ensure its mastered, right from the start of development, is the none too mysterious art of jumping. To mess up such a core mechanic is surely unthinkable and would doubtless...

In some ways Prinny succeeds in spite of itself. Who'd have thought a platform game with an annoying jumping mechanic and an over familiarity with easy deaths would prove to still be so enjoyable. Part of the game's success is perhaps down to the...

Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero?


Can you save us from the PSP games drought?

When the ultimate dessert disappears from Etna's castle, her subservient prinnies take the blame. To avoid execution, the prinnies are commanded by Etna to track down a replacement dessert. One brave prinny (who is referred to only as Prinny) is...

Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero?


This challenging, often-hilarious platformer provides a huge shift in the usually strategic Disgaea series.

Boss encounters are tense and thrilling ; Crafty level design ; Ridiculous, funny story ; Challenging but not cheap

Control issues ; End boss is stupidly hard

Explosive penguins always equals a good time. Rejoice Disgaea fans! Your favorite lovable yet easily combustible penguins get their very own game. NIS is branching the Disgaea series out into...

Great old school platforming action ; Solid controls ; Awesome humor and charm

Difficulty may turn off all but the hardcore

Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero?


Remember when 2D side-scrollers were on the cutting edge of video gaming? Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero will appease both retro fans and current-gen gamers with pure, honest, no frills gameplay.

Well placed checkpoints, 1000 lives and a nicely paced difficulty curve makes this one very addictive game

Awkward jumping mechanic makes precise jumping an impossibility

Crazy, but cool!

Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero


The first news of a Prinny dedicated title had me excited, and the fact that it was going to be on PSP, and a platformer meant I could take the console out of retirement. That was back in late 2008, and now the game has been released and for a first...

Prinny's difficulty is something people from the NES era can easily appreciate. Everyone else is just going wind up with a broken PSP.

Prinny: Can I Really Be a Hero?


You know, I'm not one to complain about difficulty in games. In fact I love it when games offer me a legitimate challenge. If you're anything like me and you love a good fight that will give you a hard time then man, oh man, do you want to check out...

Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero? is only for Disgaea fans or lovers of hard platforming titles. Anybody else who applies will find the game's challenge too frustrating and may be lost in all the "doods". If you're one of the select few who will enjoy...

PSP Review - Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero?


This PSP platformer is so difficult, you get 1000 lives to try and complete it. Are you up to the challenge? The heroes of the game summed it up nicely: "Give it your Prinny best, dood!"
