    Polarising as it might be, it's something everyone should try, because it's also the perfect example of how games can be used to a genuinely artistic outcome.

    An experience so sublime doesn't need much in the way of fancy trappings to reach a new audience, only new opportunities. [Issue #38 – March/April 2019, p. 75]

    Still one of the most original and entertaining video games there’s ever been, with a surreal sense of humour that permeates every corner of the gameplay and presentation.

    Whether you’re a longtime fan or a newbie that’s looking to try something a little different, rest assured that Katamari Damacy Reroll is the best way to get acquainted with this bizarre, yet endearing franchise. Here’s to hoping this isn’t our last visit from The Prince and King of All Cosmos.

    A classic from the not so recent past, now remastered for the newest generations of gamers.

    If you’ve never played Katamari before, there’s no reason not to pick this up over the original release on the PS2. The game is still a delight, and while it may make you dizzy, picking up objects and watching your katamari grow with all sorts of random objects will always be a delight. If you’ve played this before, though, there’s really nothing new here that’s worth trying out.

    This is a remake of Katamari Damacy, and while i cant really tell if they changed anything, it still feels fresh, the levels dont feel exactly the same as the first, while i do remember some of them. This game is easy to pick up and exciting, but also hard to master.

    Visually, its beautiful as always, i think the graphics are actually a little too good (coming from the ps2 games lol) , but im glad they kept it more or less the same. The music, as in the last games, still 10/10 one of the best and most high production music soundtracks featuring tunes played by renowned musicians and jazz bands from japan.

    If you're a Katamari fan this is a must have. If you've never played the game this is a great introduction. The Katamari series is one of a kind. its artistic, funky, japanese vibe, colorful, psychedelic, funny and cute. Even if you're not a fan of this series i think you will feel like a kid the first time you pick up this game, it's a silly experience and oddly gratifying.

This is an all time favorite, and the port onto the Switch is in HD and has never looked better. The colors are bright; rolling is as smooth as ever, and the quirkiness of the game will have you rolling your worries away far into the night. Very few games are a must have, but this one ranks above just about all of them. It's perfect for kids and adults alike. Nothing beats the King of All Cosmos waking up the day after a huge bender making his son fix yesterday's machinations to one of the best soundtracks in gaming history. Na... na na na na na na na na na na na na na... Enjoy. Expand

It's just crazy, silly, colourful, japanese fun at its best. The controls did take a lot of getting used to for me, but once you get it down, you don't really have to think about it anymore. It is quite short, but it does have a lot of replay value because the mechanic of picking up stuff with your Katamari is just so much fun. For me, this is the perfect game to throw on if I just want to calm my brain down, maybe listen to a podcast on the side. Expand

    It's katamari, so yes, its funny and beautiful and absolutely bananas, although
    i really thought i would love playing it on switch but, i was wrong: the right analog stick being lower than the right one made it really akward for me, maybe because my hands are too big? I dont know.
    But still its an awsome game, it's fun as hell, and i still highly recomend it

    This game is boring and a total waste of money. Was looking for a new switch game and was disappointed.
