Summary: The Good: Great mix of rhythm and RTS game play, cute graphical style, lots to do, $20 isn't a bad price The Bad: The game can be so hard you may end up quitting early, no multi player of any kind, somewhat gets redundant I was really excited for Patapon and then after a while was kind of let down. You play the ancient Patapons who rely on the Almighty for his beating drum to guide them through war.
Summary: My husband bought this for entertainment during his deployments. He seems to enjoy the game, so I have given it a "good" review. I have not played the game, nor am I a "gamer" so I can't really give any specifics, but he likes it.
Summary: Patapon delivers what you would expect from a rhythm-based RPG title. With vibrant music and artwork, it is impossible to put down at times. However, I feel this title is unfortunately limited to a small demographic of gamers. If you don’t have the time to continually keep up with your patapons and continue through the missions of the Metropolis, then you may not get the full game experience.
Summary: This game is pretty addicting, considering all you're doing is pressing buttons to match a rythem. You also make an army and upgrade warriors, but that isnt the emphasis. However, I don't regret buying this game for even a second. TRY IT! The only reason why I dont give it 5 stars is because of the limited content.
Summary: Patapon is a must have title for PSP owners, if you don't have it buy one now. You owe yourself that. Now that's out of the way I have to point the good and the bad of the game. The originality of Patapon is a strong feature. While musical games aren't exactly new the idea of mixing one with a strategy game is pure genius. And, more important, it works perfectly. But there's a problem with grinding.
