Patapon 2

Square-Go
22 November 2009
  • Excerpt: If it wasn’t for the fact that Patapon 2 is the sequel to last year’s Patapon there really would be nothing else out there anything like this game. If you’ve played Patapon then all that needs said is that everything good has been carried over from the first game, enough new elements have been added to keep it fresh and the few weak points have addressed. If you liked Patapon you will love Patapon 2!

Sony's Music Based Action Game Has Lost It's Thrill

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: Add depth and new features to the Patapon formula, but not enough to distinguish it from the first Graphics: Features some of the most entertaining and quirky visuals you'll see all year Sound: While the base rhythms are the same, the music is catchy and even incorporates some odd world and surf music flourishes Playability: It's still fun, but this sequel illustrates the repetitive nature of the game Entertainment: If you loved the first and aren't averse to...

  • Summary: The first Patapon was an innovative blend of music, RTS, and art design. The sequel, however, feels more like a loaded expansion pack than something that pushes the envelope. The new Hero makes a huge difference on the battlefield with his special moves during Fever mode, and the handful of new units and beats are fun to experiment with.

  • Excerpt: Patapon 2 expands on the rhythmic strategy of its predecessor without undermining the approachability or the depth that made it such a success in the first place.

Patapon 2

Game Boyz
2 May 2009
  • Excerpt: I feel the need to preface this review with a few quick qualifying facts. One, I have not played the original Paragon game. Two, I am a big, white dude who can’t dance. And three, I have no rhythm. That sucks when you’re trying to review a game like this. That said, Patapon 2 looks to expand on what was a well received first game and appears to have done just so. From my point of view, the game wasn’t all that great but I can appreciate a good game when I see one.

Patapon 2 UK Review

IGN
27 February 2009
  • Conclusion: In creating a sequel bursting with new features, Studio Japan has lost some of the essence that made Patapon such a simple, fun game. Sure, the core gameplay remains fundamentally unchanged and therefore there’s a lot of enjoyment to be had, whether you’re fresh to the series or an experienced pro.
