I got the demo for Patapon on PSP last night. 5 bucks down towards a 20 dollar PSP game, and you get a demo that not only saves your progress which you can continue from the real game, but also grants you the ability to find a spear that is only available in the demo and carries over to the real game. Holy crap this game is fun. I'm not really into rythm games, but this one is definitely the way for me to get into them, but having an army that marches and attacks to the beat of your drums definitely helps. You start off in the camp of the patapons where they are singing and dancing in your name (one is even getting drunk on a tree), but soon after you are off sending them out on their first hunting mission. You don't have to follow onscreen cues like most games of this type. You simply use the beats signifying different moves. So when ever you want them to march forward you hit pata pata pata pon, and when you are ready to unleash hell you hit pon pon pata pon. Not only do they repeat your lines in a song of war, but they will eventually really start getting into it and yelling and screaming it as they attack. The real cool thing is the game has a selectable missions from a mini world map, and you can go back and hunt whenever you want. And since the game doesn't follow onscreen cues, you can be banging away on your beats and watch the onscreen action, including funny conversations the characters have with eachother. It even has an RTS light elements of buying troops, upgrading them, equiping them with weapons found on the field, and buying vehicles like Mountable birds and catapolts, horses etc etc. I can't wait to see what other commands you get and what it sounds like having dozens of these little things attack at the same time (ala loco roco when you get a hundreds of those little annoying things singing). Something about these little guys echoing your drum beat as they unleash hell is going to make me buy this game in two weeks.
