Patapon 3 (PSP)

 

If you're familiar with previous Patapon games, it might come as some surprise to you that in Patapon 3 you don't get to command an army. You're still a deity worshipped by the titular tribe, and you still get to issue the little guys orders by...

Once Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is released, the number of ‘gritty, realistic' war games will go up yet again. Luckily if you prefer your warfare delightfully whimsical and as far removed from reality as possible, their number has also gone up with...

Patapon 3 Preview

 

Portable fans will often sing the praises of Sony's Patapon games; they're unique, engaging, and boast an oddly addictive blend of rhythm and strategy elements. For those of you who have never sampled one of these titles before, you're missing out on...

The depth should be evident once again as well. Not only do you control your mini-army by issuing strategic commands, but you can also upgrade your various units. You can also select exactly which soldiers to take into battle, so there’s plenty of...

The question of whether Patapon 3 is a good game is largely a question about the process of reviewing a video game. If you're looking for advice on whether this game will give you your money's worth: yes, it will. If you're concerned with the craft of...
