    Patapon 2's remaster still retains some dated discordance. However, the 4k/1080p remastering of this sequel’s unmistakably cartoony beauty will strike a chord, as will its harmoniously musical gameplay. Ultimately, Patapon 2 remains one of the greatest rhythm games of all-time, if not the greatest.

    Patapon 2 was really good in its orignal form, so in 4K it looks even better. The same sticky sounds, its fun gameplay, its many secrets and mechanics with depth ... It is still a great game to claim, although it is true that the remaster neglects some aspects, such as scenes that have not been remastered.

    Patapon 2 is a fun game of its time. It still feels like a relic of the PSP days with its big chunky menus and relatively straightforward gameplay, but if anything sets itself apart as much to warrant its own remaster, it’s the charm that comes through loud and clear. I enjoyed my time with my Patapons. It’s not a game I’d play forever, as my tastes have changed over the last decade, but if you need any reason to get back in, then look no further my god friends. Pata, pata, pata, pon!

    For the first time on PlayStation 4, the celebrated member of the Patapon franchise, Patapon 2 Remastered is available to introduce a new generation of players to the earworm of a game that plagued PSP owners.

    Its addictive beat-based combat is satisfying and truly unique, and while it shows its age in some of its systems, it is something that should be experienced by every self-respecting PlayStation fan.

    After the experience of playing through the remaster in a binge setting brought to light some foibles that went previously unnoticed, this is still a top quality entry in a series that has gone woefully underappreciated. Hopefully time will change that.

    Patapon 2 Remastered fails to compensate for the fact that the Sony PSP was a very different device from the PlayStation 4, and in the end, controller latency sinks this classic game adaptation. If the game had compensated for the particulars of its new home, it may have been immensely enjoyable – the core of a great game is intact. But as it stands, Patapon 2 is frustrating and unfun.

    Very basic remaster, graphics are upscaled and that's about it. Also, people who complain about audio sync issues should fix their own setups,Very basic remaster, graphics are upscaled and that's about it. Also, people who complain about audio sync issues should fix their own setups, because I played the game with my headphones plugged in and the synchronization was the same as the one on the PSP version (Yes, I actually compared them both side to side because I still have the game on my old handheld. No issues there. So, if you want to play the game again, in higher resolution, you might want to check it out. But don't expect anything besides a higher resolution. Expand

    Instead of revamping the local wireless as either couch co-op or friends list parties, The dev team thought it was more appropriate to deleteInstead of revamping the local wireless as either couch co-op or friends list parties, The dev team thought it was more appropriate to delete it and call it a day.

    I have loved this series' campaign and aesthetic since the psp, and multiplayer was one of the driving forces of it. Being over a decade later means there is NO excuse for this lazy rushed PORT. If anything it is Demastered.

    You get more value from buying the 2008 version

    I Pray to IT that we get a multiplayer patch because I WANT TO LOVE THIS SO BADLY
