Katamari Damacy Review


Despite these minor complaints, keep in mind that none of them should impede anyone from picking up this gem of a title, especially with a price tag of only 20 bones. Katamari Damacy is the kind of simple game experience that can be enjoyed by...

Katamari Damacy on Playstation 2


One Of A Kind

Many of today's game titles, regardless of budget, developer, or publisher, tend to feel as though they were built in a modular fashion. Rather than feeling built, Katamari Damacy presents itself as crafted, as though all of the design team members...

Katamari Damacy


It's very easy to get disillusioned as a video game reviewer. It doesn't take very long to figure out that almost every game that's released is little more than a variation on another game, which is, in turn, a variation on yet another game. That...

Overall, Katamari Damacy is the best ’0 you’ll spend all year. It truly defies description; it’s one of those games that is so simple that it almost sounds boring, yet is nearly impossible to put down once you’ve picked it up. Hats off to Namco for...

What happens when your father the King of All Cosmos screws up and accidentally destroys every star in the nigh sky? He makes you; the Prince, clean up his mess and pick up the leftovers.

Conclusion:Katamari Damacy is an absolute treasure. With some of the most addicting gameplay found on any Playstation 2 game this one will wow you and will even convert non-gamers into addicts once they watch it in motion. It may not be a graphical...

Katamari Damacy - PS2 review at Thunderbolt Games


Boa tarde! Have you ever been to Portugal? We were there yesterday. Wonderful place. Full of colors, whimsical sounds, frivolous extra and mustachioed machismo. We hope that you will be able visit someday, young Prince. But, not today! No. ...

Katamari Damacy


It's comical, it's quirky, it's Japanese & it's great!

The only real hamper on Katamari Damacy's greatness is the length of the title. Even with a twoplayer option, the game is far too short and is over before you know it. It could also be that I played the game virtually nonstop, and my fondness for this...

Katamari Damacy


Picking up Katamari Damacy was kind of an accident on my behalf that turned out to be one of the smarter things I have done in recent times. I was talking with some friends on another gaming forum and they were discussing how awesome the game was and...

Katamari Damacy Review


Call it strange, call it odd, call it Japanese... we'll stick to calling it worth buying.

Katamari Damacy is a shining example of elegant gameplay design combined with a rather eccentric idea. To walk away from the game without feeling overjoyed is insane. It's a rewarding experience that is unmatched at its $20 MSRP, and not liking it...

Product Specifications

Cookies and kebabs, lawn mowers and lamp posts, synchronized swimmers and sumo wrestlers, bulldozers and windmills, giraffes and brontosauruses, Ferris wheels and cruise ships beware! The stop-at-nothing pushing prince is coming. When the King of All Cosmos accidentally destroys all the stars in the sky, he orders you, his pint-sized princely son, to put the twinkle back in the heavens above. How, you ask? By rolling everything and anything on earth into clumps, so he can replace what's missing in space.
