  1. Despite the fact that Klonoa games don't see much change from title to title, it almost doesn't need it. We still see some minor additions in each one, but in the end it's the gameplay that makes Klonoa so great.
  2. The controls are absolute perfection, and the ingenious level design will draw in even those too jaded to appreciate the game's charming presentation. [Apr 2005, p.99]
  3. Sure the difficulty of later puzzles can get on your nerves but all you need to do is take a breather and set your head straight and everything will be fine.
  4. It combined puzzles and action adventure with the platforming for an experience that was not only challenging but displayed depth and variety - and it doesn't feel old-school.

    Namco deserves credit for creating a game so perfectly suited to the handheld format. Each stage is subdivided into multiple sections so that it's impossible to lose more than a few minutes of progress at any given time, and an autosave function makes recording and restoring progress a completely transparent task.

    Don't get fooled by the cartoony visuals--this is one game that'll make you think long and hard in a good way.
  7. Klonoa is a fun game to play but becomes repetitive and tedious quickly, and the fact that it's so similar to the first game is very disappointing.
