One of the most influential rhythm action games ever made, but the graphics and gameplay are definitely show their age – remaster or not.

Parappa returns, looking like 2017, but still rapping like 1996.

As much as I love PaRappa and his quest to find love with Sunny Funny, the experience was significantly marred with the visible lag and the lack of calibration options. For a remastered rhythm game, this is practically a must-have given calibration difficulties with modern televisions. I still enjoyed my time with the updated, clean-looking PaRappa, but I might just go back to playing the PSP version if I got the funky flow...

A rhythm game that can't match the standards of today's gaming in almost no department. You could be interested on it because of nostalgia, but there isn't any more substance to it that that.

PaRappa the Rapper Remastered is a game we’d recommend to every die-hard PlayStation fan, but being a straight-up remaster is a double-edged sword. On one hand it preserves everything about the original game PaRappa fans love, albeit in a much higher resolution, but on the other, it shuns new features or a revised approach to its rhythmic gameplay. There’s a lot of history there as well as some great tracks and one of gaming’s most iconic art styles. PaRappa can be as punishing as it is unconventional but, with an open mind, it may also be one of the best games you’ve experience on PlayStation 4.

With PaRappa the Rapper Remastered you will have a good time with its funny characters and catchy songs, especially if you play with the kids. It lacks new content for the PlayStation 4, but it is worth a try.

PaRappa the Rapper: Remastered is an excellent re-release of a PlayStation classic, even if it feels as though it squandered some of the potential it has as a new PlayStation 4 release. It still has the same excellent music, memorable characters, and zany charm it had when it originally released, and if you never got a chance to check it out, you’re in for a real treat. I hope Um Jammer Lammy gets the same treatment going forward.

A nostalgic game that lives better on our minds that in reality.
