Welcome to Princeland is an odd but addictively fun open-world FPS that is thematically unique as it is entertaining. The game lets you play as a fighter in a rebellious guerilla against a tyrannical prince. With tons of content and outlandish missions, Welcome to Princeland is a game that’s really difficult to classify.
If you’re looking for a game that feels like a cross between PUBG and Mercenaries 2, then this game might just be exactly what you were looking for. Sure, it has a lot of interesting content, but is the core game any good? Let’s take a closer look at what makes this game so unique!
One of the most peculiar aspects of Welcome to Princeland is its setting. Sure, we’ve seen the ‘hero must fight the island’s dictator’ trope done to death in games like Just Cause, but here, you never know what to expect from the game’s world.
The game’s set on an island called Princeland: a Principality with an insane 800% tax rate that has made living almost impossible. To pay the nation’s debts, the prince has allowed some powerful countries to run drug tests and other nefarious experiments on the islanders. The results are some hideous mutations that attack anyone who crosses their paths.
You, as part of the rebellion, must fight these mutations and the prince’s loyalists. The ultimate goal of the game is finding the prince and eliminate him, but that won’t be an easy task, as he could be hidden in any of his six bunkers.
Hunt alone or with your friends
Welcome to Princeland allows you to play the game in either singleplayer or multiplayer co-op modes. The singleplayer mode allows you to rank in leaderboards, so you can compete with the rest of the world to see who’s best at toppling regimes.
Although the game’s serviceable enough to play solo, it really shines in co-op mode. You can team up with up to 16 other players to hunt the prince quicker, or just to mess around with the game’s many outlandish objectives.
One of the particularities of the game is its missions: one second you’re hunting 10 chickens, and the next one you’re besieged by a horde of mutants. Variety is the spice of life in the world of Welcome to Princeland, and it’s many hunting missions will keep you entertained each time you try to locate the prince.
Powered by Unity
The graphic style of the game is very similar to that of Rust, as both of these games use the Unity engine. Despite the many layers of post-processing effects applied to the presentation, Welcome to Princeland still has some marked shortcomings in its graphics department, like its simplistic terrain textures.
If graphical fidelity is not a requisite for you, then you might yet find a great deal of bang for your buck with this game. Character models at least have some effort put into them, with a decent amount of secondary animations included in things like clothing and accessories.
It might not look pretty, or have a lot of bells and whistles, but Welcome to Princeland is still a fun FPS that you can play in quick bursts with your friends. The singleplayer experience might be fun for a while, but this is definitely one of those games that will be better enjoyed if played with a group.
