At first, I thought this would be a good addition to the Tales of saga, but it's very different. Not in a bad way, though. The story presented on this title is very cool, a bit ''cliche'' but that's something you would expect from this kind of games (I personally like it, it's like knowing what you're buying). But, I'm not a fan of the retro-ish visuals in game, and I don't get used to them as I play. Still, a very good choice, and offers some nice content for the value!
I had played previously Code of Princess on 3DS and I'm really happy it's now available on PC. From the point of tech stuff, it's really well done port - plays nice at 60 fps and even tho it's not full hd (1080p), it still does look amazing. Also, it's very nice to see original Japanese dubbing instead of english one - maybe it would be better to have some choice but well, it's always better how have original, since it's better (in my opinion). About how fun this game is: PLENTY OF FUN. It have thing there are MUST for a beat 'em up game - you can play with friends in coop and online. It would be better to have also coop story mode but well, playing on versus and mission mode is enough to have much fun. There are also many characters to unlock and use them in earlier mentioned modes. Ever played Guardian Heroes? Then you will feel at home. It's solid piece of game and the price is also cool.
Code of Princess is a beat em up with a similar style to the Sega Saturn titles Princess Crown and Guardian Heroes. Code of Princess was originally released a few years ago on the 3DS, I remember getting slowdown in my 3DS version of the game and this has run without problems. The game features more dialogue and story scenes than the usual beat em up letting you get to know the characters more than you usually would, some amusing scenes but nothing great. Gameplay has you using different light and strong attacks by holding different directions while attacking, jumping, dashing, and jumping between higher and lower planes on the battlefield to avoid attacks, fight other enemies, or to bypass obstacles. As you play you will unlock many different characters who play in very different ways than the main characters. Problems mostly come from it being a game made with the 3DS in mind, levels are short but there are a lot of stages, environments are reused, you will see the same enemies over and over in all the normal and bonus stages that you unlock, and the low resolution character models. The 3DS' second screen showed you some information that wasn't really needed in the original game, in this version you can play with the second screen below the action, on the side, or you can just remove it and have the battle screen take up the full screen, which is probably what you will want to do. When the game launched their was a problem with the multiplayer where you would get disconnected but they released a patch the next day to fix it. The only negative thing about the port is that it doesn't include the English dub.
