Like the first game, Patapon 2 is quite amazing. It's both more creative and deeper than the original, yet so simple to play. All you do is tap buttons to the beat to move your army and have it attack. In between missions, you outfit your troops with equipment and abilities. Patapon 2 adds some great new units, including the flying Toripon unit, and hero units with special abilities. Using these at the right moment in a fight can really save your butt.
