Another Katamari Hit

The quirky game that made our thumbs sore in 2004 is back, and it's better than ever. The graphics still aren't much to look at, but many other aspects have seen an improvement. The menus are much easier to navigate than those of We Love Katamari, and the addition of the multiplayer cooperative mode is refreshing. Yes, there are the nearly-obligatory trophies, as well, which some players may find useful for an additional challenge.

The real reason to buy this game, however, is the tweaks to the gameplay. The Sixaxis allows for a new move to jump up to higher ground without having to roll over it, and the "heart" item allows the player to pick up items that otherwise would be slightly too large. And if you're one of the unfortunate PS3 owners who cannot enjoy backwards compatibility, fear not--the developers have recreated some of the best-loved levels from the previous two games.

There's plenty here for everybody, from the grizzled veterans who remember cartridges, to the newcomers who are just now encountering our favourite pastime.

Same game as the old school versions. nothing new. I love the early katamari games, and this is a good game if you haven't played those
