  1. Once again, the LocoRoco 2 soundtrack takes center stage for me, with some great tunes scattered about the levels that are only aided by the different noises the LocoRoco and other creatures will make that seem to run in tandem with the music at times.

    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. If you enjoyed the first, or are interested in getting into the series, then I would highly recommend checking this game out. Plus you can’t beat the $20 price point, that is some serious bang for your buck.
  4. LocoRoco 2 is basicly the same game than LocoRoco 1. That is by no means a negative fact as gameplay is exceptionally clever and fun and makes you fall in love with guiding the cute little LocoRocos to the goal. A platform game with a bit of puzzle and action in between has rarely been this much fun and never as heartwarming as now. [Jan 2009]
  5. 82
    LocoRoco 2 is as amusing as the original, but the differences between the two are marginal at best. Luckily, the swell controls and endearing visuals will enchant the audience of the first all over again.
  6. Cute, charming, and an utterly magical joy to play from start to finish, LocoRoco 2 is your new best friend.
  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]

    An imaginative and original game that utilizes unique gameplay and fun visuals. 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
