PaRappa the Rapper Remastered is a nice but short nostalgia trip for Fans of Rhythm games, if you can live with a good amount of input lag. The improved framerate and optical changes are still a nice add-on if the technical handicap doesn't bother you.

The 90s legend tried to make a comeback, but it didn't work as anticipated. The game is still solid fun thanks to the great songs, but the video games have moved on considerably.

PaRappa the Rapper Remastered does an okay job of bringing the classic forward. The gameplay definitely feels easier and looks prettier than previous versions, though one of the six songs is still fairly difficult. Combine this with only some of the graphics being upgraded and you have a decent game. Great if you want to relive the game you loved or see what this classic is like, but otherwise it does not have the funky flow.

A Very Lazy Remaster. PaRappa The Rapper Hasn’t Aged Well And None Of The Original Problems Were Fixed In This Remaster.

PaRappa the Rapper is possibly worth buying if you’re a huge fan wanting a nostalgia trip. Just be prepared to have your fond memories of the title tested somewhat.

The first rhythm game we ever had on a console is finally available on PS4 with a porting that, unfortunately, offers a simply upgrade of the graphics. No new modes or songs are available in this remastered edition, with almost no changes or improvements in comparison to the original gameplay that, today, seems to be not so compelling. Such a shame!

PaRappa the Rapper Remastered is a unique game from its genre with a funny songs that stick in your head, but the issues with the timing and the length of the story makes it a good game only for the old fans.

PaRappa the Rapper Remastered suffers greatly from being a lazy port with no extra features. The lack of calibration settings stings, but those willing to overlook its faults will find a unique experience worth at least one playthrough.
