    Hey guys, My first review here :lol:
    so basicly im going to review the game for psp Patapon
    Some basic information about the game:

    Executive Producer: Kazuhito Miyaki

    and ofcorse the lead artist: Shinichi Shibazaki

    Developer: SCE/WWS

    ESRB Rating: E (entertainment software rating board) (Everyone)



    Number of Players: 1

    =========Where to begin=========

    Patapon is a game which at first seems childish, non-stratigic, poor 2D quality-ish & much more terrible things which a game should never consist of, however this is not true, dispite its childish looks the game is in fact a fun, fighter with a very attractive story line to endulge in whilst you dig deeper into the world of Patapon!



    The Patapon have fallen on hard times since being forced from their homeland by the evil Zigaton army, and you're their best shot at ever reclaiming it. Since you've showed up in their hour of need, you've also been tasked with leading the tribe to a mysterious place called Earthend so that they might gaze upon a sacred object known simply as "IT." The Patapon are a tribe of adept warriors, but they're clueless without someone to lead them and won't do anything without first being told to by The Almighty. That's you.



    You interact with the tribe using a set of four battle drums, which are mapped to the PSP's face buttons. Orders must be given to the tribe in time with a beat that's constant throughout every mission using different sequences of four drum notes. Simple orders, such as "advance" and "attack," are enough to get you through the early levels. But you'll learn others, such as "charge," "defend," and "retreat" as you progress through the game. Furthermore, you'll learn to use your godlike powers to perform four different weather-changing miracles that can be used to give your archers' arrows a tailwind or to unsettle a boss with an earthquake among other things.



    Archers, which are known as "Yumipon" in-game, are one of six different unit types that you'll be adding to your army's ranks as you battle your way toward Earthend. The others, which also have different names that will mean nothing to you, are essentially foot soldiers, spearmen, cavalry, musicians (whose tubalike instruments launch deadly projectiles), and heavies armed with oversized maces or hammers. You can only take three different unit types with you on each mission, and you can use a maximum of either three or six of each of them depending on their size. Inevitably, you'll have favorites, but choosing the correct units for a given level is every bit as important as giving them the right orders once a mission is underway.

    When you're not leading your Patapon army on a mission, there are a number of things to keep you occupied back at the tribe's home base. A handful of rhythm-based minigames that are unlocked during missions can be played here to earn extra resources and, in one case, to prepare attribute-boosting food for your army.



    As is the case in many role-playing games, collecting armor and weapons is one of the more compelling features of Patapon. Your army of eyeballs will look mighty impressive by the time you reach the end of the game. Because the game's loot selection is so large and varied!

    But what Patapon really lacks is some way for you to show off your army, its gear, and its achievements to other players on a leaderboard or in a multiplayer mode.

    =================================
    Ratings
    =================================

    I Gave It: 8.5 (its an amasing game with an unique battle type but it is lacking multiplayer)
    Game spot gave it: 9.0 (Patapon's ingenious combination of light real-time strategy and rhythm makes it a one-of-a-kind game that's easy to recommend.)
    eurogamer gave it: 8/10 (Nice!)
    c|net Gave It: 9/10 (nice game easy to pickup)
    Acegamez gave it: 8/10 ( This game is a flawed masterpiece!)
    =================================

    Outro

    =================================

    brilliant graphix
    brilliant stratigieee

    8.5 / 10!

    Riiiight. All based on "average" gamer tastes without too much thought about the subject of most non-best-selling games.

    What are you saying they only rate games based on how well they sell and not the quality of the title? Gamespot does not write biased reviews nor do they take into account a game's sales. Case in point, Okami:
    http://www.gamespot.com/search.html?...=Okami&x=0&y=0
    Editor's choice too.
    As a matter of fact former Gamespot editor, Jeff Gerstmann was actually fired from the site after giving Kane and Lynch(a horrible game that sold well), published by Eidos Interactive(financial benefactor of Gamepot) a bad review.
    http://www.gamespot.com/ps3/action/k...atures;title;1
    This should go to show that the reviews written by these editors are not at all biased. Sorry if I'm getting off topic and by the way, good review. :D
