Like previous Katamari games, this entry in the series is mainly about pushing a ball around and gathering objects to make it bigger. There are often time limits in which to accomplish this and minimum sizes you must achieve, but it's basically the same goal on each level. It's fun, addictive gameplay, but there's very little that hasn't been a part of previous installments.

The series trademark humor is intact -- and it even winks at the string of disappointing past sequels. Unfortunately, Touch My Katamari does not move things forward enough to stand out from the pack. While it's a very good portable version of the game, the series has been around long enough that there doesn't seem a need to take it on the go. True fans will have fun -- but can probably wait until the price drops.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
