If you’re a PSP gamer, and the first two Patapon games somehow crept past you, then you’d really be well served to take a look at the series. A well designed and sharply implemented merging of rhythm game and real time strategy RPG made the first two games both addictive and joy inducing.
My wife used to laugh at me bouncing up and down on the couch in time to the beat, until I made her play the first one. She got the appeal right away, which was great because it was another game that we could talk about and share, but also a curse, since I didn’t see my PSP (or my wife) for the next month. Needless to say, I was excited to get my hands on the demo of Patapon 3 in the Sony section of the E3’10 show floor without my beloved one there to steal the system.
