Console yourself: CONSOLE REVIEW
PaRappa the Rapper (sony) playstation
Saturday 20 September 1997
Although this might not sound particularly enthralling, the game is hugely playable. Admittedly, the player's involvement is limited, but there is something strangely addictive about this computerised karaoke. The graphics are of the cutesy, cartoon variety and won't impress the "serious" games player, but then this isn't a game for the serious games player. The tunes are probably the catchiest you'll hear on any format, and I defy anyone not to chuckle at the antics of Chip Chop Master Onion. The only real problem with it is that it's too short - there are only six levels and they are relatively easy to complete.
If you are looking for something a little, or a lot, out of the ordinary, that will brighten up your day, go and pick up a copy of PaRappa the Rapper.
