Fair enough, the original could be tough.

But watching that vid, it appears they have scaled down the challenge a ridiculous amount.

Hopefully they put in a choice for difficulty, or find some other ways to make the game challenging. I mean its a rythm game for a reason, if you take out the need to be able to keep in rythm, then its going to need to expand on its strategy elements.

To be abel to choose the difficuty would solve that.

I didn't think the first one was very difficult. It was just tiresome to me, because I have to constantly keep moving either my feet or my head to keep up with the tempo.

In case someone lands here from a search engine:

In the demo, you can choose the difficulty level. Medium difficulty appears easier than the first Patapon game. I haven't tried the hard difficulty setting yet.

The retail ver of the game also has difficulty select.

well they need to make the sequel more accessible for newer players to the game. I for one did not play the first Patapon because I didn't know what the hell it even was. I heard about it from a podcast and downloaded the demo not knowing what to expect. Thinking about getting it soon though.

I didn't like the first one all that much, and I have the same criticisms with this one. There's still a grind and I hate that.
