Patapon

The Gamers Temple
25 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Is it just me? Or does it seem like it has been months and months since there was a new, exclusive or fun PSP game? The so-so sequel to Pursuit Force hit stores a few weeks ago and though it was fun, calling it a "great" or "must-play" title would be the very definition of overstatement (on foot controls dampen the fun noticeably and that is pretty much unacceptable for a game like Pursuit Force; it's really only a one-trick pony in the first place).

Patapon

Playstation Illustrated
15 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Patapon is somewhat of an "ungame," in that it doesn't conform to most of the standard assumptions about what makes a game fun to play. At least in the gameplay department this is true, but the Patapon Front Office is very welcoming and makes you immediately comfortable with the tasks set before you. By all appearances, this could be a side-scrolling Action title.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: On its own, Patapon isn't a 'system seller' or whatever you want to call it these days. But when combined with the fantastic array of other exclusive titles on the PSP it really is. Taking the game as an individual and ignoring the bigger picture though, it is a wonderful game, full of happy happy joy joy from start to finish. If you don't smile at it then you're an idiot, frankly.

  • Summary: The world's first toe-tapping tactical RPG.
  • Pros: Great combination of rhythm based gameplay and tactical role playing; loads of depth and strategy; charming graphics and addictive music; fun minigames; excellent value.
  • Cons: Requires undivided attention and a set of headphones; no pause function; may be too challenging for some, despite simple presentation; some really obscure clues.
