This time around PaRappa must stop the evil Noodle Syndicate that's turning all the food in the world into noodles. The wacky story unfolds in Rodney Greenblat's unique visual style: the playful graphics are 2-D with heavy cel-shading, but aren't much of an advancement from the original; a 3-D PaRappa would have been nice. Similarly, the gameplay is virtually identical to the original's. Although there's a two-player mode that adds replay value, the eight levels in single-player mode can easily be beaten in less than four hours. Perhaps the biggest disappointment is the game's music: although cute, the tunes aren't nearly as memorable as those in the original. Still, players new to the series will find the game charming, though fans of the original are bound to be a bit disappointed. --Raymond M Padilla
As before, the graphics were created by New York artist Rodney Greenblat. There are guest appearances by Lammy and her band MilkCan, plus the ultimate rapping sensei, Chop Chop Master Onion. There's a multi-player mode for two rapping disciples to square off, plus a practise mode for you to learn how to get your beat on.
Gettin straight to the point(THE VERDICT):
-funny script and story.
-Very Well animated!
-Nice two-player game.
DOWNERS:(trust me, this game isn't reall down, I'm just picking hairs here!)
-Dull bonus and training bits.
-Still a very short game.
-Jokes soon wear thin
-The food makes you hungry(see what I mean!)
Graphics = Nice, but you're always staring at symbols:7/10
Sound = Good tunes, enjoyable lyrics and ace rapping!:9/10
Lifespan = Short, easy, but saved by two-player action: 7/10
Overall Score and thoughts:
Better than most rhythm-action games thanks to its jam-along two-player mode. The only downfalls are the shortness and the rather vague jokes. IF YOU LIKE THIS THEN U'LL LOVE SPACE CHANNEL 5(GIVE IT A SHOT!)
SO OVERALL I GIVE IT 8/10!
The story is insane. This time Parappas town is been taken over by the noodle gang, who want to get rid of the Beard Burger hangout and turn the whole town's food into noodles, Parappa is the only one who can stop this evil by using his lyrical skills!
What i enjoy abut Parappa the Rapper and Um Jammer Lammy is that the games are fun and the story is just as important and funny. It's like watching a cartoon on Cartoon Network. The flat graphics by Rodney Greenblat do the job great and the rapping is better than what some MTV rappers say these days (listen to Chop Chop Master Onion!). The songs though aren't as catchy as on the first one, but its still good.
If you're after something new and fun to play get this, but if you like super serious RPGs and shooting games i wouldn't reccomend it.
