PaRappa the Rapper

Playstation Illustrated
10 May 2008
  • Excerpt: PaRappa the Rapper was a unique and funky game back in the day, with simplistic, yet well defined, characters with an interesting animation style that features 2D "paper cutout" characters animated in a 3D world. While this style was cool, it never really caught on, leaving PaRappa the Rapper as an interesting, although niche, title. PaRappa the Rapper is a game that is all about rhythm, so it makes sense that music would be a core factor in the game.

  • 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.

PaRappa the Rapper review (PSP)

  • Excerpt: Each opponent is quite bizarre. For example, you'll first face a karate master shaped like an onion. He busts rhymes about kicking and punching, and you have to respond in kind. The other key characters are a driving instructor that looks like a moose, a reggae-loving frog at a flea market and an obnoxious chicken that hosts a television cooking show.

  • 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.
