    It came as a surprise to us, but we really enjoyed playing this game. Although the graphics reminds us of the PS2 era, the gameplay is quite fun. It’s a bit like Katamari, but with a windy touch to it.

    As a game experience, it is an interesting product which distinguishes itself from other better-selling videogames, but its main shortcoming is its short durability.

    Perhaps the most nonsensical game on PS3 - and all the better for it. [Christmas 2009, p.107]
  4. The good gameplay and the quite good story make this game to an exciting one, even if the sound and graphics could have been better. The only problem is that you actually take over controls of a tornado and destroy cars, houses and other stuff people had to work for.

    A nice twist on the Katamari template, but it soon gets repetitive. [Winter 2009, p.86]
  6. Each level follows the exact same progression path, and this dull repetition ultimately makes what could have been a great tornado game nothing more than a funnel cloud.

    Instead of making an entire retail version of this game, it would have perhaps been better to bring out the game as an arcade title. However Tornado Outbreak did surprise us, and therefore it deserves a nice mark.
  8. It's cute enough, but this Katamari clone won't blow you away.

    Fun for the first few hours, but ultimately pricey and repetitive. [Christmas 2009, p.82]

    Even the repetitive pacing and level structure can be forgiven, because it's simply fun to annihilate stuff. [Holiday 2009, p.85]
  11. With its simple Katamari Damacy-like game mechanics and cartoon-like visual style, Tornado Outbreak manages to entertain despite a relatively short campaign and underwhelming graphics.

    Bland atmosphere. [Issue#186, p.82]
