if you turn off in that case the game turns nothing more than 7+ in my opinion this is a very fun and addictive game, probably too adictive
age 14+

Despite it's T rating, the game was made for mature audiences.

Look, before I say anything I have to say this game isn't made for kids, even though it is rated T it is made for adult audiences. The game is VERY bloody, a lot of kids will try to get their parents to buy them this game but, don´t, at leats not if they are around 14 or 15, besides that it is a great game, very easy to play and lasts a long time, the game is very simple, you can play solo, or play online, but really its both the same thing but the solo is with bots. The best and most important game would be the princesses, you start out with the other team's princess in your castle and you have to prevent the other team from taking her back to their castle, you also have to feed her with cake to make her fatter, and making it harder for the other team to carry her, you also have to do the same thing to the other team. There's also a capture the flag, team deathmatch and a bloody soccer game. Also, you can change how much blood there is in the game, theres 3 options: No blood, Just Blood, and Blood and Gore. This being said parents will also think this is a good thing...its not. yes, you can change it but, there's no password to protect your kid from changing it. They have said that this is why it's not rated M, because you can take the blood out, well it should be the other way around, it should be rated M just because you have the option to put an awful lot of blood in it. Believe it or not there's a lot of crazy people in this website that will say in every M game that the game is ok for an 8 year old, don't trust ANYONE you don't know in real life that tells you it ok for an 8 year old to play an M game, unless you know them and trust them.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (11 ):

There's no denying the humor in Fat Princess. The cartoonish graphics, though decidedly bloody, will evoke laughs from older players, as will the witty pop culture-referencing taunts uttered by the tony soldiers, such as "Fracking toaster!" (BattleStar Galactica), "I'm going to cut you into little pieces like the ice-truck killer!" (Dexter), and "I'll bite your legs off!" (Monty Python and the Holy Grail).

What's more, the game play is marvelously deep for a downloadable game. While the concept of feeding someone to purposely make them obsese is disturbing, in this world it happens because the cake is cursed and creates an unstoppable craving. Whether you're collecting bits of cake to feed your princess to make her heavy and difficult for the enemy to carry away or building strategic entry points (like trampolines) into enemy castles, there's no shortage of things to do. However, the game's cartoonish look will almost certainly attract younger players, and may lead their parents to think that it's okay for them to play. Make no mistake; this is not a game suitable for pre-teens.

Online interaction: This is a predominantly online game that facilitates open voice communication between all players. With the right group it can make for a very pleasant social experience. However, a few bad eggs can spoil the experience. Players can mute those who bother them.
