  1. This game would be super fly at a party You won’t be whizzing through it unless you’re super smartie.
  2. PaRappa will win over anyone with his hipster looks and smooth style. [Nov 2001, p.50]

    The kind of inexplicable game that you have to own.
  4. The music is incredible, catchy and well-written. But best of all, the concept is original.
  5. The magic of PaRappa will not be easily cloned and we'll probably only get one like it in our lifetime. Sure to transcend cultural differences, PaRappa is special; plain and simple.
  6. The game is on the short side and once you are well practiced it won't take much longer than 30 minutes to beat it. But believe this, this is one great party game, you'll be in stitches as people fumble their way through the rap when they first start. Parappa is a must have game.
  7. The only real problem with Parappa is concerning the depth as this title really does not allow much variation and Sony have only included six fairly short levels.

    It is far from perfect, but it is essentially one of the most original and appealing games on the PS1. Pros: It is one of the funniest gamesIt is far from perfect, but it is essentially one of the most original and appealing games on the PS1. Pros: It is one of the funniest games I've ever played -- and heard; the 2-D sprites and art style are cool; the story and characters are unforgettable. Cons: Too short and too shallow; no replay value; frequent mechanical bugs. Expand
