"After only a few hours play, we hated Patapon. Every time we marched into battle our tiny tribe of eyeballs would be mercilessly blackened by everything the evil Zigoton army threw at it, no matter what we did. Not even the singing tree and the small trumpeting soldier could lift our mood. Should something that looks this sickly-sweet be so taxing? It's more surprising given that the Patapon team also made the super-accessible LocoRoco. But a few swears and several successful missions later its quirky, strategic charms won us over."
