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...

  • 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

Project COE

  • Conclusion: This is yet another example of why Sony needs to allow PSP owners to have direct access to the PlayStation Network. A game like PaRappa just isn’t worth the full asking price of a PSP game. Had Sony released the original on the PSN for only a few bucks, it would have been a great game for players to relive or experience for the first time. Instead, this port feels rushed and lackluster.

  • Conclusion: It's hard to hate a game as genuinely quirky and happy as PaRappa and indeed I don't hate it. I do hate the sticker price and the lack of anything truly new, however, and until this is on the PlayStation Store as a download, avoid it.

PaRappa The Rapper

The Gamers Temple
16 June 2007
  • Excerpt: In case you didn’t know, PaRappa the Rapper is the second coming of a game first released ten years ago in an age when PlayStations came without a numeral after their name. As far as I know it hasn’t really been updated for this decade, though, and you get a mere six short levels of gameplay. In fact, more of the game is devoted to the cutscenes played between the levels than to the play itself.

PaRappa The Rapper - PSP

Futuregamez.net
14 August 2007
  • Summary: PaRappa The Rapper fails miserbly. We've seen it all before, there's little new on the table and - to be honest - I don't think it was ever a brilliant game to begin with!

Parappa the rapper

GameStorm
10 December 2007
  • Excerpt: Era l'ormai lontano 1997 quando Sony decise di spiazzare tutti lanciando sul mercato PsOne un titolo innovativo e unico nel suo genere. Primordiale Rythm Game, PaRappa the Rapper narrava le divertenti vicende di un cagnolino vestito in classico stile Hip Hop deciso a superare tutte le prove per diventare un abile Rapper.
