    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.

  1. Ostensibly the same again, then, LocoRoco 2 nevertheless pulls its charm tight and burrows deeper into the mechanics, level layouts and set-pieces, presenting more elaborate rewards in visuals and gameplay, and doing a better job of sharing them with you so that you don't always feel as though you're searching for cuddly needles in a Teletubbies haystack. It comes across as a refined, more elaborately constructed sequel that remembers why it was good in the first place.
  2. Even with some new touches and a increased difficulty, there are little changes in this sequel, which is probably the big problem here. The game keeps being as charming and enjoyable as the first one, so it´s perfect for those who love LocoRoco, but it lacks the sense of surprise and discovering of the first one.

    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.
