Katamari Forever

 

If you?ve ever played the Katamari series before, then you might be sorely disappointed by Namco Bandai?s newest entry. However, for those of you who are newcomers, you?ll find a very unique game that?ll keep you entertained for hours. From the very...

While Katamari Forever is a fun, quirky and interesting experience, it suffers from a number of issues which really disrupt the flow of the game. Nevertheless, it is a highly addictive game that will have you playing for hours on end

When I first saw Katamari Damacy, it was shoved into a corner of Namco's booth at E3. There were no plans to bring the game to North America, but I tracked down the person who claimed responsibility as a producer or overseer of some sort and begged the...

Great storyline ; Still charming ; Great gameplay

Lack of new levels ; Jump doesn't always work (even with the button press and not using the motion controller) ; No online play still

Those that have played all the previous Katamari games may want to give this one a pass. If you passed over a few of the previous Katamari games, or are new to the franchise, this is a great introduction. I just wish it was a little cheaper.

Review: Katamari Forever for PS3

 

If you've played any of the Katamari games in the past then you have a pretty good idea what Katamari Forever has in store for you. In Japan the game is known as Katamari Damacy Tribute, a fitting title given that it is largely a recollection of...

Katamari Forever - PS3 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

The King of All Cosmos has amnesia. Despite all his power, getting hit by a passing meteor was enough to take him down. Now that he's out of the picture, there's no one left to manage the Cosmos. You'd think the Prince and the rest of the royal family...

I hadn't played the Katamari series in years before receiving Katamari Forever in for review. The newest, PS3-only, entry into the Katamari series that began on the PS2 features updated visuals, a new move, some other new gameplay elements, and all of...

Katamari Forever doesn't try too many new things with this first PS3 version, but the old formula still works well. That said, I'd recommend this to newcomers and series veterans alike.

A rolling Katamari gathers no moss. (PS3)

Balls. That’s what Katamari’s all about. Indeed, that’s what a Katamari is - a big, sticky ball. That’s what it’s been since Katamari Damacy debuted on the PS2 in 2004 and that’s still the way it is now, five years later. Katamari Forever couldn't be...

Rolling a katamari is as charming as ever, but you may have rolled most of these katamaris before.

Rolling katamaris is still loads of fun ; Looks much better than any previous game in the series ; Wickedly catchy soundtrack ; The king and the roboking are funny and memorable ; Unlockable modes add some replay value

Almost entirely made up of recycled content ; Same limited multiplayer options as previous games, with no online play ; Camera sometimes loses sight of you

The soundtrack of the game features a slate of remixes; there's few new tunes. The remixes of classic Katamari music are usually pretty good, though in some of the later stages that take 10 minutes or more, they really need to switch mid-song, as...

And the Prince rolls on and on...

My review here was mostly negative, largely because there's still many problems in terms of general mechanics that still haven't been ironed out. However, it's still the same old Katamari overall, which is a good thing if you've never played it (or...
