I was lucky enough to find a copy of Patapon for the PSP sitting on my doorstep as I got home from work today, and after taking care of the boring details of the evening (dinner, picking up a new dishwasher), I sat down and gave the quirky little game some attention. I won’t go into what Patapon is too much, since there are already reviews and plenty of hands-on impressions floating around, but I do want to say that I am really enjoying the game thus far. The game is definitely unique and refreshing, and I can’t wait to see what else it’s going to throw at me as I progress.
For people who enjoy rhythm and/or action games, this might be worth checking out. The game is only $19.99 brand new, so there’s no need to wait for a price drop or for used copies to start showing up on store shelves. If I can find the time in the next few days, I’ll give the game a full review here on the blog. Oh, you all must be waiting with such anticipation!
Edit: Penny Arcade’s comic on Patapon was hilarious…just ask somebody not playing the game but has spent time around someone who has.
