    The game exudes a sense of innocence and charm that quickly sweeps away any frustrations, and leaves you whistling the theme song long after you put it down.

    It may not be nearly as deep as the first game in terms of levels, but LocoRoco 2 delivers the same kind of visual flair, solid gameplay and musical addictiveness that the first game had.
  3. No better and no worse than the original - but still an absolute joy in nearly every respect. This is a must-have title for the PSP.
  4. LocoRoco 2 is a great title at a great price point. Its misgivings -- short playtime, lack of narrative substance and meaningless collectibles -- are easily trumped by the game’s character and solid gameplay.
  5. LocoRoco 2 is a fresh and original experience for players and for the PSP line too. It has lost the surprise factor of the first game and the new features are not enough because offer a similar feeling. But LocoRoco means innovation, is an alternative expression and this generation needs it.
  6. LocoRoco 2 may play it safe, choosing not to mess with a successful formula, but it adds a few nice twists here and there.
  7. It’s one of the happiest pieces of software ever released, constantly throwing tunes, trinkets and new tricks at the player simply to amuse them. [Jan 2009, p.93]

Minor gameplay additions in terms of enemies, friends and platforming. Music mini-games added, which is a good thing. More alive and more populated than the prequel. All and all, a worthy upgrade and an excellent starting point for those who never tried the first one. PS: A demo is already out on the PS Europe store. Expand

LocoRoco 2 is light and breezy and has that classic easy to learn/hard to master learning curve. The music is lively and the colors jump out at you. This creates a great energy running throughout the game. The game is a joy to play even if its lightness means that it won't be particularly engaging or involving. Expand
