PaRappa the Rapper

Digital Chumps
18 March 2008
  • Excerpt: Back in the late 90's, before the rise of broadband internet, Sony's preferred method of interactive promotional media arrived via their quarterly, cd-magazine, Playstation Underground. Each "issue" offered a host of playable demos, developers interviews, loaded save files, and other assorted PSX knickknacks. While it happened to showcase a lot of crap, PSU was also the first time a lot of us got to sample titles like Final Fantasy VIII , Disrupter , and...

This Old Dog Won't Teach You Any New Tricks

  • Conclusion: In the original game, you competed against other characters including the Rap Master whose style you must emulate in a Simon-says fashion in order to move on. The PSP version includes a four-player multiplayer mode that lets you compete against other players. It's a decent addition, but the novelty is short-lived. You can also game share, so I would recommend finding someone with this game first and play it for free.

  • Excerpt: While the game is fun while it lasts, the problem is that there's really not much to do beyond the six stages the game offers. The multiplayer mode is just there for looks, apparently hastily appended like some sinister footnote - in it, up to four players can rap on the same song and see who gets the best score. It doesn't feel like there's any direct competition, as none of the players can affect the others in any way.

  • Summary: Obviously, the music is one of the key elements of Parappa's enduring appeal and the tunes remain as hummable and enjoyable as ever. The memorable tracks showcase a talent for rap and their humorous, almost nonsensical lyrics have aged surprisingly well considering the shifts in popular music. The songs are a bit more kid-friendly than you probably remember, and this should make it even more broadly appealing.

  • Excerpt: trying to woo Sunny for himself. Although the storyline really isnt all that significant to the gameplay, the lighthearted and somewhat humorous storyline offers a nice refresher in-between the intense button-pushing rhythm rapping. PaRappa the Rappers gameplay is rhythm-based. That is, the gameplay is centralized around music, in which you must push a series of button combinations as indicated in time with the beat.

  • Excerpt: Kick! Punch! Chop! Block! Sound familiar? That's because it's the famous opening to PaRappa the Rapper from the original PlayStation. Way back in 1997, which believe it or not is now ten years ago, Sony came up with the original concept at the time - a rhythm game. It never caught on as a mass hit, but had a cult following that lives to this day.

PaRappa the Rapper

Defunct Games
8 August 2007
  • Summary: PaRappa the Rapper is just as much fun on the PSP as it was ten years ago on the PlayStation, unfortunately it's also the exact same game that we played all those years ago. Even with a strong presentation and great music, this "updated" PaRappa just feels like a missed opportunity to give us some extra content and a reason to spend $30 on the game a second time around! This product was submitted by the publisher for review.
