Sony calls Patapon a "quirky adventure." To Crispy Gamer, there's nothing quirky about it. Patapon is inventive, artful and designed so well it almost outdoes the oh-so-pop PaRappa by bringing you sizzling-hot clannish music. Then, it squashes squeaky-pop LocoRoco by bringing you cartoonish yet fiercely focused black-and-white warriors, each with one eye.
What's Hot: When your girlfriend hates you, the Patapon still look up at you in awe; Three kinds of games in one; Dizzyingly rhythmic soundtrack.
What's Not: No multiplayer to pit god against god.
