Summary: When I buy a game for any portable system it's because I'm going to be playing the game on the road and not sitting at home playing it. Patapon was very difficult to play while traveling because it required button pressing to the beat of the music. I don't generally turn the music up very loud on my system when traveling as I need to hear whats going on around me (such as my cell phone ringing or a gate change at an airport).
Summary: I decided to purchase this game after reading several reviews here on amazon. It seems that a good number of people enjoy it, i however did not. I can appreciate its originality and colorful presentation. I mean, at first i tried to get into it and just enjoy it as everyone else did. But after about an hour of listening what sounds like children whacked out on speed say "Pata Pata Pata Pon" I thought to myself, why am i subjecting myself to this torture.
Summary: I wanted to like this game so badly but it just wasn't happening. I'm not a musically inclined person so I really couldn't get the hang of the beats (as easy as it may seem to others). My patapons kept yelling at me whenever I messed up and I eventually got so angry I just turned it off. I've picked it up again several times since, each time hoping that I could get the hang of it... but it just wasn't coming.
Summary: Typically read a lot about a game before I buy. I like RPGs and was intrigued by the rhythm component after thoroughly enjoying Puzzle Quest (a very different but also "mixed" type game). Found out I apparently don't have any rhythm. Gave up on the game after several hours and the first 5-6 levels. Never qualified as fun for me.
Summary: below average game that does not meet guitar hero type game-play expectations; not enough excitement and challenging instructions leaves the game in limbo somewhere between tweens and aged 6-9. niche game.
Summary: I purchased this because it sounded so different and unique, getting rave reviews from all the big websites. I had also previously enjoyed Loco Roco, a similar game, which I had really enjoyed. I just don't get it, well I do, but perhaps the difficulty is just beyond me. Little eyeballs, wealding weapons, need to defeat other armies of cute characters. To get them to do various actions, you have to press a correct combination of the PSP's buttons in the correct rhythm.
Summary: Le concept est original, mais pour ma part j'ai trouvé le jeu fort lassant... Il faut du temps pour maitriser le jeu, et à force c'est assez énervant de répéter à l'infini les mêmes gestes... Beaucoup de gens ont adoré ce jeu, personnellement je l'ai très vite revendu...
