"When it comes down to it, Patapon is a great game that is quirky, charming, and addictive at the same time. However, it's an experience that will attract many gamers by its concept but will probably turn off many others because of the execution and be destined for cult hit status. It definitely doesn't hurt that the game will only cost you $20 to buy, which is less costly than most PSP games right out of the gate. Demos are available on UMD or from the PlayStation Store to help you get an idea of what to expect while earning an exclusive weapon if you go on to buy the full game."
