Parappa the Rappa


An all too brief rapper's delight.

Parappa the Rapper


trying to woo Sunny for himself. Although the storyline really isnt all that significant to the gameplay, the lighthearted and somewhat humorous storyline offers a nice refresher in-between the intense button-pushing rhythm rapping.

PaRappa the Rapper review for the PSP


It's all in the mind

Parappa is awesome; Same great songs

He used to be more awesome; No new songs; Technical issues

I am not quite as overjoyed as I was the moment before I tore the shrink wrap off the game. I must admit that it was nice to see all the old masters and have a chance to rap beside them again. It was nice revisiting the Dojo (Kick, Punch, It's all in...

Before there was Guitar Hero, before there was Elite Beat Agents, even before there was Dance Dance Revolution, there was PaRappa the Rapper. Released in 1997 for the PSOne, PaRappa introduced the rhythm music genre to console gamers. Now, a decade...

Ultimately the brevity of PaRappa the Rapper is what makes it such a tough game to recommend. There's no doubt it's still a lot of fun. The story is charming, the characters are cute, the rappin' gameplay is clever, and the songs are incredibly catchy....

PaRappa the Rapper


I learned a lot when I got Parappa the Rapper for the PSP: I learned that I am still terrible at Parappa; I learned that Parappa is still a fun game and I learned that, to my amazement, the game costs $30. Yeah, there are so many ports and remakes for...

Parappa stands as a game that represents an age long past - that of simplistic, short-but-sweet games that can be beaten with only the slightest of effort on the part of the player. While still an incredibly entertaining and engaging game, Parappa...

PaRappa the Rapper (PSP)


People remember Parappa more for its music and graphics than anything else, but with all of the hindrances this new version provides, what was once fun becomes both boring and frustrating pretty fast.

A seminal classic; one of the most original soundtracks

Multiplayer is sub-par; the gameplay is significantly dated; can become repetive quickly

Long before Harmonix formed their Rock Band, Red Octane became a Guitar Hero and everybody ignored Frequency, there was PaRappa the Rapper. Released almost exactly ten years ago, PaRappa the Rapper was one of the very first rhythm games released in the...

PaRappa the Rapper is just as much fun on the PSP as it was ten years ago on the PlayStation, unfortunately it's also the exact same game that we played all those years ago. Even with a strong presentation and great music, this "updated" PaRappa just...

PaRappa The Rapper


This is what I love about Sony; they have never been a company to shy away from something different, and that is exactly what Parappa the Rapper is -

The final verdict on Parappa the Rapper for the PSP is that it is still a very good game just far too short and far too basic. It is unfortunate that Sony wasn’t able to do more with this classic game, to take it to the next level. Unfortunately I...

PaRappa the Rapper


Want to relive one of gaming's most-loved cult classics? Money money money is all you need!

A pioneering classic is back; added downloadable remixes and multiplayer; songs, art style and story still hold up

Meager six stages end before you know it; remixes must be downloaded, arenÃ'Â't that great; too pricey for barebones port

Believe it, PaRappa the Rapper is coming to PSP, and he's even getting some bonuses to boot.

Well crap, now we have to find that alarm clock...

Product Specifications

PaRappa is a rapping puppy with a crush, and to win the heart of the dreamy Sunny Funny and see off his rival, Joe Chin, he is going to need some help. So begins a musical journey of kung fu tuition with Chop Chop Master Onion, driving lessons and cake baking! PaRappa The Rapper returns to the stage for a 10th anniversary special on PSP. Developed in association with legendary multimedia musician, Masaya Matsuura, and famed New York artist, Rodney Greenblat, PaRappa The Rapper combines infectious and vibrant hip hop music with the iconic art style and flattened animation (PaRappa means "paper-thin" in Japanese).
