PaRappa the Rapper is an interactive cartoon about a shy puppy named (oddly enough) PaRappa, who has a crush on the beautiful Sunny but doesn't know if he has the courage or power to impress her.
The graphics and audio, however, just might: All of PaRappa's characters are comically animated paper dolls moving against colorful 3D backdrops, a simplistic and charming visual design that never would have worked but for the game's theme and some brilliant camera motion.
PaRappa is undeniably cute and hip - the ideal PlayStation mascot in that he's so universally acceptable and nonthreatening.

 The Armchair Empire - Playstation 2 (PS2) Reviews: PaRappa the Rapper 2
The story is very light throughout the game and it does a good job of bringing a little humor and a Saturday morning cartoon-style to the character interaction, as PaRappa tries to figure out whose behind the outbreak of noodles so he can put a stop to it.
While PaRappa himself raps to everything, the tunes he does this to have a good mix of jazz and funk to them as well to allow for a far more groove-oriented style to the tracks, instead of being pummeled with your typical 4/4 time, robotic beats.
In so far as the visuals are concerned, the game takes on the same sort of aesthetic as that found in the original PaRappa the Rapper and UmJammer Lammy with it’s two dimensional, paper cutout-esque character design.
