Is It Any Good?

Just like the first game, We Love Katamari has a delightful presentation to match the unique gameplay. The graphics are so-so, with blocky characters and objects, but this works well enough within the cartoon-like world of the game. Every board dazzles the eye with hundreds of multicolored things, people, animals, etc., moving about, evoking a world of crazy toys. Also, just like the first game, We Love Katamari features a soundtrack of kooky pop songs that are a fitting aural background to the action.

Though We Love Katamari is a bit longer than the first installment, it is still a little on the short side. Nevertheless, the charming world of the game provides enough of a draw to ensure a good deal of replay value. Players can revisit any board they've played to collect different objects or attempt roll their katamaris bigger and faster. There's also a two-player cooperative mode.

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.
