The Good

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

The Bad

Control issues, End boss is stupidly hard.

The Bottom Line

A spin-off if the popular RPG Disgaea featuring the popular bird-like Prinny characters. Players control an unlucky penguin dude called a Prinny and slash their way through various Netherworlds. For this tough-as-nails action game, you're given 1000 units to accomplish your mission, but even with those 1000 units you will have to use everything you find on the battlefield to survive. Lift and throw objects, stomp enemies, even pilot tanks and planes to bombard whatever gets in your way!

If you think you can handle the absurd difficulty of Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero?, you'll have fun with it. The charming sprites and modest 3D backgrounds work well with the PSP and the music and voice acting is commendable.
