Boing! That's the sound of your patience snapping...

Lovely colors and shapes ; Still unique ; Still rewarding

Too tough in places ; Boinging changes everything and not for the better ; Only 16 stages and two minigames

Oddly, and perhaps this has a lot to do with the game’s sound and visuals, such grievances don’t completely detract from your enjoyment. On the whole, this is a shorter, less successful and considerably more hardcore experience. But damn it, it’s still...

Yo soy loco por LocoRoco!

 

Despite the creepy title and intro video, LocoRoco Midnight Carnival brings us a bouncy, yet infuriatingly difficult, successor.

A great point for new gamers to come in, as they will hopefully continue the series with "Boing!" included henceforth. A strong narrative and multiplayer would have only helped this game, but neither were really explored. A great portable title.

It may look like LocoRoco, but you won't find any of the previous titles' charm and fun here.

LocoRoco Midnight Carnival Sony PSP Review

 

As your game begins, the LocoRoco sleep peacefully in their village. (And they're so cute doing it.) None of them take notice of a snarky little BuiBui (an evil version of the MuiMui, a little critter that hops around like crazy), who flips a switch...

Reasonably priced at $15, looks and sounds just as delightful as previous games in the series, the new Boing gameplay mechanic works, the Pachinko and crane mini-games are delightful inclusions, decent multiplayer

Shorter than previous LocoRoco games, some of the challenges may drive younger fans bonkers

Oh, those crazy LocoRoco. Just when you think their adventure is over, along comes a new tale that keeps them rolling. They already appeared in two great PlayStation Portable adventures, and now Sony has a third available for download through the...

A BuiBui Bust.

LocoRocos are still adorable; Catchy soundtrack

Extremely difficult; The Boing mechanic isn't great; High degree of frustration; The game makes puppies cry

These bubbly and happy LocoRoco are back and as cute as ever as we take them through the carnival.

LocoRoco: Midnight Carnival

 

The hardest game in the series is also the best.

It's hard to say whether the difficulty will put you off of the game though. For those that are a little more casual in their approach to how they play the game, and enjoy slowly opening up new sections and finding little secrets within each world, I...

New gameplay mechanics and multiplayer support are welcome additions to the series, but they come at the cost of accessibility.

New Boing! mechanic is great ; Online scoreboards and replays

Steep difficulty curve ; Requires repetition to progress ; Limited multiplayer options ; Short single-player campaign

LocoRoco Midnight Carnival

 

It was only back in February when PlayStation Portable owners had in their hands the wildly enjoyable LocoRoco 2. That hasn't stopped the team over at Sony's Japan Studio from releasing the follow-up LocoRoco Midnight Carnival to coincide with the...

Same LocoRoco charm ; Ranking System ; The ability to download and upload replays ; Multiplayer ; Boing' is an interesting addition

Difficult ; Very little new in the Audio and Visual Departments ; I'm not kidding, this thing is really hard

By no means is Midnight Carnival a bad game. The problems with it lie in the fact that it is just too difficult to be enjoyed by a wide audience. The new challenge, interesting multiplayer and the incentives brought with a world-wide leader-board are...

LocoRoco: Midnight Carnival (PSP) review

 

A game this cute shouldn't make you swear so much...

It's good to see a new mechanic introduced to a series that risked stagnation, but questions remain if it's that great an addition. Regardless, Midnight Carnival is good fun and if it were pricier, this number would have been smaller.
