Just Beat It...

Gameplay - 8/10
Storyline - 8/10
Graphics - 7/10
Game Score : 23/30

OK; so lemme just start off by saying this game doesn't involve beating your meat or any other lewd twisting of words you can think off. Also shoutouts to my fellow gamer Dwayne Williams aka Grabbit for preaching about this game enough to spark interest in me to review it. As with all game series it is ill advised to jump head first into this one as it is the third installment in the series and you may find yourself at a bit of a loss as far as storyline and game-play is concerned. Thankfully however the game gives a series of training missions to help alleviate the strain of newcomers to the series where controls and game-play are concerned. I was a little apprehensive about this game cause honestly I didn't understand the appeal of it but after trying it out for myself I must say it has both a simple side for the casual gamer and a more complex side to it as well for the more in-depth hardcore gamers. I must say even though i'm not a newly converted fan of the franchise I can see people playing this and enjoying it.

Patapon 3 is a rhythm game for the PlayStation Portable and sequel to Patapon 2Gameplay remains mostly the same from previous installments, with each face button representing a drum that is beat giving instructions to an army of Patapons. The main new addition being "Superhero Patapon," who acts as the player's avatar and is the character that physically beats the drums rather than the omnipresent god from previous games. Upon completing the bridge they constructed at the end of Patapon 2 the Patapons find a mysterious box. Upon opening seven evil spirits are released and turn all the Patapons to stone except Hatapon. A silver Hoshipon from inside the box revives Hero as Superhero Patapon. They endeavor to defeat the evil spirits throughout the course of the game. Check out the first few minutes of the game here to see if it strikes your fancy...

If you own a PSP and are looking for a simple game to pass the time with that isnt too cumbersome controller wise, then you may wanna pick up a copy of Patapon 3 and give it a go. Most important thing to remember when playing is to; feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme, get on up, it's Patapon time.
