Rhythm games on handhelds are a hard trick to execute, but Patapon does it masterfully by weaving music beats into actual combat. The soundtrack is addictive (though trance-inducing at times), and there's plenty of depth here as the game continuously challenges you to upgrade your drum-crazy army.

FUN FACT: Patapon won the BAFTA Games Award for Best Handheld Game in 2008.
