We never thought you could summarize the concept behind Patapon in a 10-second TV spot, but somehow, they managed it. Granted, this is a title that might appeal more to the Japanese gaming crowd, but it's certainly not something that North American gamers should ignore. It's not often we get something entirely unique in the video game world these days, and it doesn't get more original than Patapon. It's a rhythm game melded with a strategy premise; your units respond to musical-based commands, which you have to "input." Without any doubt, it'll make for a worthy addition to the PSP's library, so doesn't that mean it's worth a look?
