Patapon is manna from heaven for PSP owners. There's been a dearth of great games for Sony's portable lately. This is the innovative, exclusive game that many of the devoted have been waiting for. Unlike Loco Roco, the game is tailor made for the hardcore gamer. The only folks who go unnerved are those who balk at a game that looks or sounds too cute. While the superficial furrow their eyebrows because Patapon doesn't seem grown-up enough, the adventurous will enjoy one of the most interesting and infectious role-playing games in ages.
