Patapon 2: The Hero And The Bird Boss

By Spencer . November 21, 2008 . 12:05pm

The Patapon are at war again and need God’s drum beats to march to victory. After Haripon’s ship crashes he awakens to your rhythm after and sets out to find survivors. If this sounds a lot like Patapon you’re right. Sony didn’t deviate much from the formula of the first game. Instead they expanded upon […]

By Spencer . January 30, 2008 . 2:29am
