There are new features then, it just doesn't feel like they go far enough. While the sound of the Patapon chanting 'pata-pata-pata-PON!' felt invigoratingly original before, now it's starting to grate a bit. Change the tune, guys. And while LocoRoco 2 got the balance between old and new just right, Patapon 2 has nothing that matches up to rolling down a hill encased in a giant afro. Yes, it's a better game than the original - the fleshed-out levelling up system, meatier tunes and four-player mode see to that, but if you've already marched to the beat of Patapon's drum, you may find this sequel bores more than it thrills.
