Product Overview

We Love Katamari features the diminutive yet determined Prince with an assortment of celestial cousins and the eccentric King of All Cosmos. The King of All Cosmos grew to stardom after taking all of the Prince's katamaris and replacing the stars. His fans knew no bounds and wished to see more katamaris fill the sky. The King of All Cosmos desired to appease all of their requests and recruited the Prince and his cousins to help. Now they are tasked with rolling up even more clumps, each larger and more different than the one before. In We Love Katamari, players find themselves in various new locations around Earth as the Prince and his cousins roll up different katamaris according to the fans' requests. We Love Katamari continues the series' trademark graphical style and musical excellence with an original soundtrack and hundreds of brand new items including Koi fish, angels and famous Earthly landmarks to roll up. The Prince's celestial rolling has no boundaries; as his katamari grows larger, he can roll up literally everything in his path--from underwater creatures to mountains and even the Eiffel Tower itself! Players can also roll with a friend in the all-new two-player cooperative mode. With each player controlling part of the clump, they will have to devise new strategies and communicate their rolling intentions in a new level of katamari madness. Battle Mode has also returned to We Love Katamari in extended form with three size scopes for competitive rolling action.

Review "Katamari Damacy" is still on my short list of favorite games of all time. It's an incredible game, and I'm not giving up my copy for anyone. But We Love Katamari has managed to beat it, hands down, in almost every single way.

Review Despite the game's single-minded clarity and apparent repetitiveness, the creative challenges provide clever variety. Goals include tidying a boy's room, creating giant snowmen, lighting campfires, tearing around racetracks, satisfying Hansel and Gretel's gluttony and even saving Earth from a meteor storm...Much of the game's undeniable attraction comes from Katamari's presentation, with psychedelic Lego-like worlds and the most memorable, infectious soundtrack since PaRappa the Rapper. The sound effects when rolling over assorted victims are equally wonderful and will provide lots of giggles...Love at first sight. Many players are sure to enjoy this joyous and creative game.

Review Namco is going right out and saying it - they're making this game because the fans of the original want to see more katamaris. It's a bit trite to say, but this game is like Namco's thank you to the fans that made the first one a runaway hit...This game adds several new environments, including a campsite, an island race track, a school, and an underwater grotto. Moreover, these environments are much larger than ones available in the previous game. You only had a given number of resizes per level, when the game would zoom out and show the katamari was ready for larger objects, in the original. While still true, the game resizes much more, and more often, in this game. You get to see a much larger world with many more items strewn about, resulting in bigger katamari in less time...Katamari Damacy is still on my short list of favorite games of all time...But We Love Katamari has managed to beat it, hands down, in almost every single way.

Review It is a sequel, but We Love Katamari has not lost any of the original's surreal edge. It may have been said before but it bears saying again: whatever the guys have been taking to make a game this weird, I wish it came in six-packs. Nothing this strange could have been imagined without chemical assistance. But of course rolling up everything in your path, including multitudes of people, and sending them to a blazing death as the heart of a new star or the core of a planet is perfectly normal, good, clean fun, right?...In We Love Katamari, the music is again very catchy. I don't think it is quite up to the standards of the first game, but others could disagree. It all still works to make hours of katamari rolling never get old.So while We Love Katamarimay not have the "WOW!" factor that its coming-out-of-left-field predecessor Katamari Damacy had in 2004, it is still more fun than the majority of games will ever be.
