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

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.

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.

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.

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 your occasion to play a PS One classic, now with the dynamic 4K support for PS4 Pro. Besides this, is exactly the same game of twenty years ago.

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.

Though time may have drawn greater attention to PaRappa‘s opaque win conditions and sometimes wonky sense of rhythm, it’s still a ludicrously enjoyable blast from the past and a decent remaster from an aesthetic perspective.

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.
