3.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet October 19, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was really excited to learn that Katamari was coming to the 360. I thought we would be able to roll the biggest Katamari ever at lightning fast speeds, have 3 times as many areas to explore, a killer new soundtrack and tons of online playability. Unfortunately, Katamari fails to deliver on several of these expectations.

First, this game, like the other Katamari games: Katamari Damacy, We Love Katamari and Me and My Katamari, is a BLAST to play. For those who don't know, you play as the Prince of the Cosmos who has been sent by the King of the Cosmos to use a sticky ball known as a Katamari, to roll up items in the world to create stars, satellites and planets to re-populate the solar system after the King has done something to mess up the galaxy (always something funny). The Katamari starts out small and at first you can only roll up small objects, but as the game progress you'll be able to roll up people, cars, buildings and even landmasses (and much later... entire planets!). This kind of unique gameplay is addictive and fun to say the least. Here's where the game falls short...

I defeated the game in a day and a half (that includes obtaining the online achievements). The game is very short compared to other Katamari releases. Also, you end up re-visiting several maps that are being passed off as new levels simply because they have a few different items in them. With the 360's power, I really expected there to be tons of levels and none that repeated themselves, which isn't the case here.

The sound was a let down also.

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
The creative force behind Katamari Damacy and We Love Katamari did not work on Beautiful Katamari, so I didn't expect this game to have as many new gameplay mechanics as those games. But a new Katamari game full of new levels with new objects and maybe a few new challenges sounded appealing to me anyway. As near as I can tell, there is such a game on this disc. Unfortunately, you can't play all of it just by buying the game.

When I first played through the game, I thought it was a bit short. Even including bonus unlockables, there are only about 9-12 levels and several of them are very similar to each other. Almost every level on the game has the same kind of goal: get as big as you can while picking up as many objects of a particular type (drinks, cold things, "powerful" things, etc.) as possible. The only exceptions are one level where you have to raise the temperature of the katamari by picking up hot things and avoiding cold things (very difficult), one where you need to pick up as many "rings" as possible (which is pretty fun), and a bonus level where the type of object you need to pick up changes every minute or so. There are no get-an-exact-size challenges (like Saturn in the previous installment), no pick-up-only-one-X levels (like the CowBear level), no katamari-on-fire levels, no underwater levels, no snow levels, no pick-up-lots-of-one-item (as in the firefly level), and not much clever at all. So when I completed the game, I was slightly disappointed that there wasn't much more to do.

That's when I heard about the "downloadable" content. There actually are more levels in the game, but you just can't play them unless you pay (about $3.50 each level) to "download" them. I put "download" in quotation marks, because the levels are already on the disc.

3.0 out of 5 stars Price Makes it Worth a Purchase if You are a Katamari Fan November 27, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I love the other Katamari games but I found this one a bit of a disappointment. The graphics are exactly the same as the other games in the series even though this game is on a new system and the stages look very similiar. Speaking of the stages, however, they may look similiar but there seemed to be a lot less that was interesting and funny to roll up.

The game was fun to play because the controls were quite simple to use, but the game is quite short and does not contain anything new. It is pretty cheap so if you like the Katamari games this is probably worth a purchase. If you are new to the series of games and have one of the other systems I'd think about getting one of the other games as you will probably get a longer game play out of them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing November 16, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I loved the original Katamari Damacy. It knocked my socks off. It was fun, quirky, original; it was my favorite game. I loved We Love Katamari. The controls were a little less sensitive, which meant that the learning curve was not so steep. It captured the essence of the original perfectly and it seemed to go on forever. Every time it seemed like the game was over, the king popped up with one 'last' request. It was fantastic. I was so excited about the release of Beautiful Katamari, but it was not all I had hoped.
The levels which were included were fun, but the game was short. I didn't expect it to be as long as We Love Katamari but it was short enough that I couldn't believe it was over. I re-checked all the levels, sure I had missed something that would unlock the rest of the game. It turns out the rest of the game was available as downloadable content. This game was not cheap enough to justify it's length in my opinion. It really felt like they made a whole game, but only put half of it on the disk.
Additionally for those with a PS3 the newest Katamari game, Katamari Forever, contains all of these levels, including at leas one of the downloadable ones, and a better story line.

Fantastic game. Its so quirky, so unique. The sense of humor is fun, yet not gross or obscene. The visuals are easy on the eyes, even if your not use to playing other JDM games. Read more
