For those who have never played PaRappa the Rapper, it's a rhythm action game where you hit buttons when prompted on-screen to the tune of rap songs, and star PaRappa performs actions to your presses. It's got a quirky, eye-catching visual style, all the characters paper-thin. If you're down, eye ourreview of the Japanese import.

You play through a number of scenarios, including learning karate with a onion-humanoid and taking your driving test with a rapping moose, with the ultimate goal of winning the heart of flower-creature Sunny Funny.
