Patapon (PSP) - Review

VGChartz
16 August 2009
  • Excerpt: It’s hard to find a quirkier game than Patapon. Impossible to categorize in genre, as it’s in equal parts rhythm, role-playing game, strategy and 2D scrolling action; with an art direction unlike anything I have seen before and some catchy music that has stuck with me since I saw the trailers, I knew beforehand that the experience I’d find in it would be unlike any other. And, for sure, I wasn’t wrong.

  • Conclusion: Patapon is a must have PSP title that delivers more than just a quirky good time, but repetitive missions may turn some gamers off.

  • Excerpt: Let's start out this review with the most important item: Patapon is a turn-based rhythm RPG. Yep, you read that right: a turn-based rhythm RPG. When a game like Patapon comes along, the standard thing to say is that it's rare to see games break the boundaries of their genres and try something new. I'm not going to say that. These days, we seem to see more innovation than ever before.

  • Conclusion: For only $20 you might want to give this game a chance at some point. It takes awhile to get use to the gameplay, but once you get the hang of things you might find a real treasure here. If you do decide to try this game make sure you don’t quit way too fast.

Portable Review
16 April 2008
  • Excerpt: Had it not been released at the remarkably low price tag of $20 USD, Patapon might have been overlooked by many here in the States. That’s not to assume that the game is bad or a ‘budget title’ in any way. In fact, this may very well be the third most satisfying twenty dollars you spend on a PSP title.

  • Excerpt: The Sony PSP system has a wide library, and outside of a few titles, has not released anything that captivated me in such a way that it holds my limited gaming time. Patapon, released by Sony, combines the addictiveness of a rhythm game with elements of a strategy game. Rarely has a game made such an impression on me that I often find myself starting up the PSP instead of my old standby Xbox 360.

Patapon Review

11 March 2008
  • Excerpt: Truly unique experiences are sought after like gold in the videogame industry today, but rarely does a work deliver on an off-the-beaten-path idea as successfully as Patapon for the PSP. In what can best be described as a linear real-time strategy/rhythm fusion game, Pyramid and JapanStudio have managed to provide great depth and engaging game elements in what is, at first glance, a very simple piece of software.

  • Excerpt: Name: Patapon Genre: Rhythm/Action Platform: Playstation Portable It wasn’t until developer SCE Japan decided to take a chance and announce that they’d release their game for $20.00 that Patapon really made any waves in the gaming community. Videos were released showing a title that looked like LocoRoco meets Pikmin meets PaRappa the Rapper - and gamers’ interests were peaked.
