Great,Fun and Suspenseful

Really makes good use of PSP controls. May be very slightly scary for very young kids (due to spiders) but otherwise all good.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Easy to play/use

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (2):

Complementing its colorful and simple graphics and smooth animation, LocoRoco excels in its catchy soundtrack. In fact, the LocoRoco seem to like it, too, as they sing along with every song. Along with the single-player adventure, LocoRoco includes three Mini games. You can even build a custom LocoHouse by collecting pieces, such as a teeter-totter for stairs.

Good news for parents: the E-rated LocoRoco doesn't contain any inappropriate content. Even the occasional "combat" elements in the game are simply one blob bumping into another. LocoRoco is a refreshingly charming, fun and original game for players of all ages. Run, walk or roll to the store to see for yourself.
