I'll always love Parappa. It's due to this love that I have to be harsh here because I expect better from the origin of rhythm games. We'll just have to believe if he ever comes back he makes a debut that feels like a modern rhythm game should.

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.

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 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.

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.

The loose design of the system embraces the loose nature of actual rap and hip hop.

PaRappa the Rapper is a legend, but even legendary status doesn't prevents its latest remasterization from being a let down. The charm is still there in the music and its visuals, the problem comes with the archaic mechanics and some technical issues. If only Sony would have went beyond the graphic remasterization, maybe the game could have fulfilled our nostalgic expectations.

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.

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.
