  1. The title, although a bit short in the level variety, certainly is worth its price in other content, including one of the best senses of humor to be found in a game.
  2. There is no real feeling of "competing for the conclusion" that most games have. This is really just mindless, goofy fun.
  3. Perhaps a bit less imaginative than its PS2 counterparts, the game's still a quirky example of pure fun. [May 2006, p.93]
  4. Weird and funny. It suffers from clunky controls and PSP's small screen. The special missions are a nice addition, but overall thte game is too repetitive. [Aug 2006, p.53]
  5. This is a Katamari game in all its glory, only a bit truncated. It doesn't have the longevity or the broad appeal of its predecessors, but it has the basic spirit, which is what counts.
  6. With the most bizarre humour you're ever likely to see in a videogame, the same simple premise, the strangely hypnotic tunes and a functional stab at getting the basics right, Me & My Katamari is a thoroughly recommended title for fanatics and newcomers alike.

    The lack of variety in the levels was a major factor. But even more so was the constant loading and unnatural, abrupt transitions.

When peopleThis is my first exposure to Katamari after hearing about it so much. I love it!!! It is so original and whimsical, and fun!!! When people throw around the criticism that it is repetitive, they are themselves reacting in a repetitive and conventional fashion. It's a game, not life (which can be multifaceted) All games happen to be repetitive in some way or another. If it happens to be a repetition one likes then more often than not, the reviewer doesn't mention the crirticism of repetition. The review can only be as competent as the human being doing the reviewing. They can't all be Da Vincis and Einsteins!!! Trust me. Read my 2008 review of Speed Racer, the movie. Expand

    A pretty darned good conversion of the console game. The controls take a while to get used to, but it's a really fun game.
