5.0 out of 5 stars Best Patapon Yet!!! April 22, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, I have well over 100 hours in each of the previous Patapon games and loved them. Patapon is a rhythm based side scrolling game. It is really difficult to draw similarities because quiet simply there is no other game like it.

This game tries to bring a few new things to the table.

I'll start with...

The Good

1 Just like the previous titles, the game play is very addictive.
2 Art style is phenomenal
3 Game play is unique and refreshing.
4 You can, for the most part, play it in 5 minute bursts when you have the time. I pick it up and put it down all night long in between other activities.
5 You can also play it for hours on end and to be honest there are likely hundreds of hours of game play here.
6 Its true, in this version you can level up your weapons at the blacksmith. This is important as it is hard to advance if you ignore this feature.
7 This is a big one, your patapons no longer die in battle. I am sure Sony realized that everyone was resetting their PSPs anyway. The prospect of having a character you spent dozen of hours developing lost forever was absolutely stupid.

Now for the bad.

1 Much like the 2nd game, there comes a point when you have to do a little level grinding in order to advance. This could be a lack of skill on my part, but I am an avid gamer and have played the first two extensively so if it is happening to me it will certainly happen to others.

...Edit Level your weapons at the blacksmith! I was not and it made things much more difficult.

2 This game is much deeper in terms of the extras outside of battle, for one thing thing they added multiplayer, but getting into a game is not intuitive and too be honest I found the process cumbersome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pata Pata Pata Pon! April 16, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I must say it has been a long wait for this game but it is certainly worth it! The new level up system makes creating your Patapon army interesting and challenging! Unlike previous Patapon games where you had tons of Patapons running around this one limits you to just four. However, thanks to the level up system and multiplayer options, this shouldn't be a problem.

I also love the addition of a blacksmith and store so you can upgrade the weapons you love and sell the ones you have fifty of.

This game will take a little time to get adjusted to because it's different than the other two Patapon games, but you'll soon find it as fun and addicting as the rest if you give it a chance!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pon pon pata pon February 24, 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Reading through the 1-star reviews made me upset. They obviously weren't actual patapon fans. While yes, 2 was the best of the three, this one was incredible to say the least. The story is fun, the characters are interesting and numerous. The rythmns are very well done and the amount of customization in your characters is endless. Every class has at least 6 other classes it can turn to, each very very different. All the weapons and helmets look good, and lets face it, the djinn summoning was just plain fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Most Strategic Yet April 17, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In this installment of Patapon the basic core of previous games is still here like the rhythm and music, but a big change is the strategic gameplay and the new level up system based on EXP. You only have four patapons, but they make up for it with power and skill(they are each like a hero). As you progress through the game your patapons will gain new skills and abilities. you can also now sell, buy, and upgrade your equipment. One more addition has been long awaited for, online multiplayer. Personally I haven't tried it so someone else will have to review that portion of gameplay. Even with all these positive additions there are some things that some may not take well. Compared to earlier versions the RPG and strategy elements have been amplified and sometimes you'll find yourself grinding to level up your squad enough to defeat the next quest. This is relatively minor issue, but this could ward away new players. In overall it is packed full of enhanced gameplay surely to take another 102 hours out of my life as Patapon 2 has done.

EDIT

I have now had a full experience of the online features of the game and there are a myriad of pros and cons to the online which would best be exhibited with a list.

CONS
-You have to backup your save file and system data because of hackers (playing with one can lead to a "infected" save meaning your rewards will be locked at level at the time of "infection"
-Versus matches are so hard to find (usually you will need to set up one on online chat boards)
-Some heroes totally dominate versus matches and are unbalanced 9I'm looking at YOU "pyoko"!)
-An "Online-Entitlement" is required to be purchased on the PSN for 10$ for each account who uses it.
