FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

The Good: Great, catchy graphics, and songs

The Bad: Demanding precision makes playing extremely frustrating, simple game play doesn't hold up, passable downloadable tracks

While Parappa was a huge success back in the 90's it doesn't hold up to today's standards. What mostly kills this game is its extreme difficulty due to the fact that it demands such precise timing. I found myself restarting the first level 30+ times because you have to hit the button EXACTLY when you need to unlike most rhythm games. While the songs and graphics are catchy and light hearted you don't care because the game is so difficult. The game doesn't have that many songs either and the downloadable ones are a waste of time. If you liked Parappa back in the day then you might be disappointed now because it just doesn't hold up.
