Summary: below average game that does not meet guitar hero type game-play expectations; not enough excitement and challenging instructions leaves the game in limbo somewhere between tweens and aged 6-9. niche game.
Summary: i bought this game for my 8 year old as a gift. Waste of money. Impossible to play, nobody in the family can figure it out, instructions do not help. You are supposed to match tapping the keys to drum beat to move your army around, but there is competing sounds in the music, so you don`t know if you are to match the sound of the singing, or the drums or the tamborine noise, nothing works.
Summary: This game is just about the best ever example of a "dark horse" game I have ever played. I bought it SOLELY on a recommendation. My understanding of the game, as explained to me by a friend of mine who works at GameStop was that it was part Amplitude, part King Arthurs world (I am old!), and part Lemmings. That is kind of true. It's basically a side scroller, where you act as the God of the Patapons.
Summary: This is one of the most creative and unique games I have come across. It has often seemed to me recently that new games were stagnating a bit. By that I mean that most new games were a variation of a common theme, more racing games, more first person shooters, etc. So this game was a revelation, very unique and very interesting. The characters are great. The sounds of the game are addictive (you will be humming pata-pata-pata-pon to you yourself for days).
Summary: I didn't buy this on amazon...picked it up at gamestop, but I just have to leave a review for this cute little game! You basically hit buttons in time with the drum beat to progress through the levels. It's so fun to play, and definitely recommend it to anyone that has a psp and is looking for games!
Fun diversion, with too many stupid design decisions

Summary: Patapon is a rhythm game in which you tap buttons in a certain order and rhythm to get your little guys on screen to perform actions, like moving forward, attacking and making it rain. Pros ----- (+) Fun addictive game play (+) Great looking visual design (+) Responsive controls Cons ---- (-) WHY THE F**** do developers make cut scenes uninterpretable?!
