A fun and funky sequel, Patapon 2's bolstered roster of cheerful eyeball folk make for another welcome trip soundtracked to the beat of Pata Pata Pata Pon. It's a shame then that the remaster feels incomplete, offering an experience that's fundamentally less comprehensive than the PSP original.

Patapon 2: Remastered brings back a PSP classic that improves throughout the first part and does it with a new face lift but without any playable addition in your proposal. Fun, challenging and full of secrets, it is a real experience to make you an ally of these nice beings.

Patapon 2 was real good in its orignal form, so in 4K it looks even better. The same sticky sounds, su divertida jugabilidad, sus numerosos secretos y mecánicas con profundidad... Sigue siendo un gran juego a reivindicar, si bien es cierto que el remaster descuida algunos aspectos, como escenas que no han sido remasterizadas.

Patapon 2 Remastered brings back the unique and joyful mesh of Rhythm Games and God Games that made the beloved series stand out back in the PSP days, but the very basic treatment of this remaster and the removal of online functionalities prevent it from being an outstanding revival.

Patapon 2 Remastered brings its unique style to the PS4, with plenty of variety, and some wonderful music to boot. It's just a shame that the input lag is a problem.

Patapon 2's remaster still retains some dated discordance. However, the 4k/1080p remastering of this sequel's unmistakably cartoony beauty will strike a chord, as will its harmoniously musical gameplay. Ultimately, Patapon 2 remains one of the greatest rhythm games of all-time, if not the greatest.

Patapon 2 Remastered is a fun session game, witch suffers from poor video quality, as well as some elements of audio accompaniment. But it is still interesting to beat the rhythm and watch the actions of funny little men. If you liked this game on PSP or are a fan of the genre, we recommend paying attention to this remaster.

Patapon 2 is a fun game of its time. It still feels like a relic of the PSP days with its big chunky menus and relatively straightforward gameplay, but if anything sets itself apart as much to warrant its own remaster, it’s the charm that comes through loud and clear.

Patapon 2 Remastered fails to compensate for the fact that the Sony PSP was a very different device from the PlayStation 4, and in the end, controller latency sinks this classic game adaptation. If the game had compensated for the particulars of its new home, it may have been immensely enjoyable – the core of a great game is intact. But as it stands, Patapon 2 is frustrating and unfun.

Patapon 2 Remastered makes it easy to fall in love with those adorable eyeball creatures all over again. It follows in the footsteps of the first game's PS4 revival, and in doing so it repeats all the highs and lows. You'll struggle to find a gameplay experience as unique as this, and it remains an addictive time sink, but somewhat obtuse design and hectic battles can easily throw you off. It has its flaws, but it's an eccentric and charming game that will eventually have you dancing to its rhythm.

I must have played through Patapon 2 five or six times now and it is still amazing.

Patapon 2 Remastered doesn't introduce anything new to the game, but is still fun to play for fans of the genre. Input lag can unfortunately rear it's ugly head, which can make an already difficult game, nigh impossible on harder difficulties. It's tough to recommend this one for any but the most devout of fans as there are a wealth of better rhythm based games out there right now.

Patapon 2 is still a very good game but the PS4 version lacks of polish.

Sorry that a series like Patapon, still unique in the rhythm game genre, is struggling to find peace among the pixels of its new editions for PlayStation 4.

If you haven't played the Patapon series prior to these remastered versions hitting the PS4, I strongly urge you to do so. They are challenging yet fun, and the music gets stuck in your brain like the best earworm you could ask for.

Patapon 2 Remastered suffers from the same poor quality video as other PSP remasters, but maintains the delightfully charming gameplay. The original wasn't the most ambitious sequel and while it lacks the freshness of the first game, it makes up for that with both increased width and depth.

In the end, Patapon 2 Remastered is ultimately a very divisive title. Some people will love the take on the genre and enjoy all the little things, whereas others will find it tedious and frustrating. The decent learning curve and so so explanations also don't help. That being said, if you were looking for something different, love the originals or just want to see what it is about, it's well worth giving it a try.
