Code of Princess (3DS) review
"Itís easy to appreciate each of those characters, from the busty heroine, to the shifty young bard, to a disinterested necromancer and a brutish fellow who likes cuddly forest animals. There is enough charisma here to support a properly lengthy RPG, which means that one of the greatest tragedies in Code of Princess is the fact that the writers werenít given time to more fully explore the themes and story."
Once upon a time, the princess Solange was loafing around the throne room, showcasing her spectacular figure in a stylish suit of armor that left less to the imagination than most bikinis. Her father was sitting on the throne, doing kingly things, when suddenly a hostile force arrived at the castle walls.
ďThe villagers have let them in the front gates!Ē someone yelled not long after that, from somewhere, and the king wondered aloud why the people would do such a thing.
Itís a fair question, asked within a game that inspires many fair questions while failing to offer many satisfactory answers. Code of Princess isnít exactly the sort of title that does well if you examine it closely. Itís a simple brawler, a bit on the short side without any wrinkles that go more than skin-deep. There is a good game here somewhere, but blink and youíll miss it.
