Parappa the Rapper may have started the music genre as of today, but this remaster clearly shows that the game hasn't aged well – mainly because some technical problems.

PaRappa The Rapper Remastered is not quite the hero’s welcome PaRappa deserved. I wanted to believe, and there’s evidence here of why the game is fondly remembered, but this particular dog has had his day.

PaRappa The Rapper Remastered is a controversial Ultra HD Edition with updated graphics and cool music, which suffers from broken controls and blurry cutscenes. The game can be recommended only for fans of the series. Everyone else can safely skip.

The remastered edition of Parappa the Rapper is like an old tape found in a drawer: despite the (sometimes) cranky sound, it could be an authentic gem, for someone else, it's probably just an old, worthless gimcrack.

PaRappa the Rapper Remastered is a time capsule from the late 90s – warts and all. The high-definition gloss might make the game look better than ever, but it can't mask how the genre has moved on in PaRappa's absence. The mechanics don't hold up against the competition of today, but the fantastic soundtrack, charming characters, and budget price should prove more than enough to get the nostalgia juices flowing in anyone who remembers the old dog's first outing 20 years ago. You gotta believe!

The Remastered Version of Parappa the Rapper improves on the graphic style of its original version. Now the game runs on PS4 PRO at 4K but the nostalgic appeal remains unchanged.

I love PaRappa and his ‘I gotta believe’ attitude, but this early rhythm action game no longer holds up. That’s no slur on its charming visuals, great music and superb animation, all of which look great in this HD update, but the gameplay just doesn’t really work. Enjoy PaRappa in your memories or on YouTube if you must, but this remaster will leave you thinking bad of the rapping pup and, really, who wants that?

PaRappa The Rapper looks amazing on its visuals but the gameplay hasn't aged that well. The lack of a tool to calibrate our screens maybe is the worst part of this new edition of the classic rhythm game.

PaRappa the Rapper Remastered is a great throwback aurally and visually, but the frustratingly tight timing required and delay of PaRappa’s audio samples make it a chore to play. It’s a shame that the menu wasn’t reworked to highlight the additional arrangements or to take advantage of how control schemes were updated over time, and I’d rather just listen to the songs than hear PaRappa freestyle his own messy groove over the tracks for the sake of a high score. Still, as frustrating as it can be visiting an old friend that never grew up, there’s something endearing about playing PaRappa the Rapper almost exactly as it played 20 years ago, with a fresh, vibrant coat of paint on its audio and visuals.

PaRappa The Rapper Remastered is an archaic and badly remastered return of the old game. The original had its own style, but PS4 version doesn’t add any new exciting feature whatsoever.
