If you are new to the Patapon series then i would start with P2. P3 has taken the character power up system and turned it into a chore. All Patapon games rely on replaying levels over and over to gather materials and currency to inprove you army to move on to the next set of levels that you will be stuck on before upgrading again. This was the fun part with lovely graphics and satisfaction when you can eventually beat a certain boss, P3's update system is overly complicated and adds nothing to the fun of the game. The new minimal character (1) per class also takes away the acheivment from beating a level with a depleated and war worn army also. The balance of the game seems a little off too, with the feeling that you bludgen your way thru a level instead of choosing the right team and choice of attack, retreat, defend etc.
The graphics are a improvment and the addition of mutiplayer (not played) are a plus but the negatives above should only appeal to the dedicated follower of the series.
P4 on the Vita perhaps.

Happy gaming.

Everyone knows, that Patapon = grinding. But Patapon 3 = lots of grinding! Game is tough, tougher than previous games. It's also simplified - minigames in your village are gone. You now only have 4 patapons - hero and his 3 helpers. To level them up, you need to grind, and you need to do it a lot more than in previous games. On top of that - is simplified as I mentioned, so grind is almost only thing left. Playing the same stages, over and over again, either to get more xp, or just to level up because you can't beat next level (and they are hard sometimes, a lot more than in previous games). All in all - if you've never played Patapon, buy Patapon 1 or Patapon 2 first. Only if you liked previous games you have a chance to like this one...

The Patapon series is a beautiful rhythm game, where you press the buttons along to some very funny and catchy Japanese tunes. The graphics to this game have always been unique - you control an army of very colourful, and perfectly designed little patapons, giant 'eyes' who sing, dance, and fight. I played Patapon 1 and 2 for days, and had hoped that the series was headed to perfection with the 3rd part.

For the most part, Part 3 is an interesting refinement of the core ideas - rhythm action, XP levelling, and strategy all come together quickly and (kind of) simply.

However, the Patapon series' biggest problem is sadly again here in evidence: it is incredibly obtuse, and the game's objectives are so poorly presented that just getting into the flow of it can be a struggle. The game is very often unclear about what it is you need to do, and the lateral leaps of imagination needed to progress are often so obscure as to leave the game unplayable.

I've played over 70 hours on the first 2 games, and within 2 hours on this game I'd hit 2 difficulty spikes that were pretty much insurmountable. Blind luck got me past the first one, but the second stopped the game dead. The game keeps killing you, and offers precious little help in steering you toward a solution. I just gave up, as life is too short.

There's a cute game in here, but that cuteness is at complete odds with the ridiculous difficulty level. 2 stars - a major disappointment for me!
