Top Critic Average
Sony brings a cult classic to a wider audience but does so with little fanfare or consideration
Overall, Patapon is a game that deserves its second chance and HD treatment. It’s a game with a unique concept, while managing to pull it off. It’s both a great RPG and rhythm game. While this entry shows it’s initial design flaws, especially with teaching its mechanics, it’s still a game worth playing. It doesn’t hurt too that those little patapon creatures are so cute with their dancing and musical chants.
Patapon Remastered offers relatively clever gameplay, but sometimes it's a really frustrating experience. And you definitely won't appreciate very poorly made cutscenes and many crashes. It's not a bad game, but the remaster is average.

Patapon Remastered is a great and addicting gameplay experience. The rewarding boss fights make up for some of the weaker levels and the sound and visuals fully cement Patapon as a great remaster. However, the bad first impression, occasional difficulty spike and lack of instructions hold it back from being outstanding.
If you’re a fan of rhythm games, you should definitely check it out just for its novelty. Even with the game’s flaws, there is still a classic rhythm experience with a bunch of eyeball creatures waiting to be experienced.
An enhanced version of a great and unique game that is one of the PSP's best. If you haven't tried it before do not miss it this time.

Patapon is back with its original personality thanks to a new remastered edition ready to entertain the PS4 fan base, even if this porting lacks of the same compelling experience found in the PSP version.

Patapon aged very well and it's nice to play it now on the PS4. This remastered version is just a decent way to enjoy the rhythm and strategy of the PSP classic with polished graphics.

Patapon is simple, elegant, and utterly delightful.
Unlike some who may be considering picking this up, I was a fan of the original release of Patapon and, as such, found that despite my initial misgivings playing Patapon on the PS4 is generally just as fun as it was in portable format.
