Guys, guys. Patapon 3 is a great game. So is Patapon 2. I will admit, when I started playing Patapon 2, I was like, What is this crap? So I deleted it and went on with my life. Several months later I was looking for psp games, and Patapon was highly rated. I got it not knowing that I had already played and hated it.
When I started to play it again, I gave it a chance and I loved it after about 15 minutes. I couldn't put the game down. Long nights I stayed up just playing that game, addicted.
Patapon 3 is quite a gift. It brings to the table a proper level system, more equipment, leveling up equipment, magic equipment, a great artstyle(all patapon games), And heros. There is much, much more to the game than that.
Using music to control your army is a unique way of playing the game, and they have added in several new ways to play.(ctf, deathmatch, caves, etc). All the levels have high replayability. I remember in Patapon 2, I beat a level over 20 times, and never got bored of it. The enviroments are just so fantastic to look at and the graphics are capturing.
I don't know why you all are hating on a game with that sort of description. Just when you goto play, make sure you can have full concentration(Because you need it), and some headphones and you are good.
