    Retains all the charm it had ten years ago. [Issue#155, p.84]
  2. PaRappa the Rapper is not only a rollicking trip down memory lane, it reminds you how groundbreaking the game was and the path it has laid down for so many pretenders in its wake. Well worth a look for PSP owners.
  3. PaRappa is just as refreshing today as he was 10 years ago, though somewhat hampered by the PSP's control scheme. [Aug 2007, p.101]
  4. 68
    If you've never played the original game, it's worth a quick look. But for anyone hoping PaRappa can compete strongly in today's music game category, look elsewhere.
  5. Entertaining and charming, but a little on the "incredibly short" side.
  6. Provided that you are willing to persevere with the game’s difficulty, Parappa provides a lot of fun.
  7. There's a sense of satisfaction to slogging through each challenge in normal mode, but with only six levels to beat even this proves to be a hollow victory. [Aug 2007, p.109]

    One of the great games that has been created for the PlayStation to the PSP. It's still the same from the original PS One classic.
