Like the excellent Loco Roco, Patapon is so charming, original and inventive it deserves to be in every PSP owner's collection.
Deceptively simple at first, Patapon gradually introduces more and more twists, complexities and surprises as the game progresses, making for an incredibly addictive and satisfying handheld gaming experience.
The graphics are dramatic and creative and the music and beats hypnotic and captivating. You'll be bobbing your head and tapping your feet for hours as you attempt to march your diminutive tribe to victory. Their chants will play over and over again in your head long after you've switched your PSP off for the night.
Patapon is almost impossible to fit into any one genre; it's part rythym game, part real-time strategy, part micro-management sim and completely and utterly charming.
I cannot wait for the sequel!
If you have a PSP – you need to try Patapon!
