    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]

    LocoRoco 2 is a truly imaginative title and one worth revisiting on the vita if missed on the psp. The aesthetic is extremely vibrant andLocoRoco 2 is a truly imaginative title and one worth revisiting on the vita if missed on the psp. The aesthetic is extremely vibrant and gorgeous. The whole game exudes colour and this is matched with the equally colourful and infectious soundtrack. The soundtrack and visual style are used effectively to contrast the good in the game with the evil. With a game with limited narrative, the occasional text box, the story is effectively told through the animation and music. The characters are perhaps one dimensional but act as simple and lovable balls of colour and sound. Having the choice between characters is nice but I found myself sticking with the default LocoRoco. The gameplay is very innovative and engaging but quick movement and changes of direction can make certain scenarios frustrating and make some deaths feel cheap. It is however a pleasure to explore the well designed and varied levels that truly encourage exploration for secrets and offer incentives for replaying by introducing new gameplay mechanics that can open up previously closed areas. The level of difficulty is low allowing the player to enjoy the visuals, level design and music. LocoRoco 2 is padded with some mini games which are a bit unnecessary and not too engaging, adding to the length of the game to its detriment.
    Overall LocoRoco 2 is a pleasure to play through its visuals sound and gameplay and is definitely recommended.
