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.

PaRappa the Rapper review (PSP)

HonestGamers
27 September 2007
  • Excerpt: When it came to the original PlayStation back in 1996, Parappa the Rapper made quite an impression. It featured heart, humor, challenge and compelling gameplay that could keep a person trying to conquer a stage for hours before he realized how much time had passed.

  • 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...

  • 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.

Defunct Games
