Product Description

Product Description

A terrible event has occurred causing the stars to disappear from the night sky and the King of All Cosmos to fall into a coma. The Prince must use his finely tuned Katamari rolling skills once more to re-create the absent celestial bodies, save his royal father and restore order to the Cosmos. Thumb tacks, sushi, cats, people, skyscrapers, ocean liners and continents - nothing is safe as the Prince makes his way through the largest variety of stages in a single Katamari game ever. New graphical styles give Katamari Forever a certain “je ne sais quoi” that all new Katamari games possess. A few of the new styles include Wood, which uses warm sepia tones to give stages a wooden feel, while Comic creates thick black outlines on every object while filling them in with deep, rich colors. Make sure to try them all out and find your favorite for a totally new way to experience the world of Katamari.

Amazon.com

When the King of All Cosmos bumps his head and loses his memory, the Prince and his cousins design a RoboKing to replace him. But the situation goes terribly awry when the RoboKing goes out of control and destroys all the stars. With the fate of the Cosmos hanging in the balance, the Prince and his cousins must roll their Catamarans to fix the RoboKing's destruction, restore the King's memory and bring color back to the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Worthy Addition September 22, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm certain others will be more detailed on the history, but there was a storm regarding "Beautiful Katamari". That storm happened because it was released on the XBox 360, but not the PS3 even though up to that point, the entire Katamari franchise had only been released on Playstation systems (PS2/PSP). But thankfully the developers went forward with "Katamari Damacy Tribute", which would in the US be known as "Katamari Forever". So for fans of Katamari Damacy, the wait was over and we get to see the game in HD for the PS3. I'll try to explain the game without giving too much away. So be forewarned, there might be a minor spoiler there in terms of gameplay.

First, this is NOT like the XBox 360 version. The story fits in line with any other Katamari story. Short, basic and (sometimes) confusing. The king takes a knock to the head and it's up to you, with the help of "Roboking", to restore his memory. Among other things. The overall gameplay remains consistent with one major change. You can now (spoiler) jump! Hard to reach places are no longer an obstacle and on some levels you will really need to do this to get higher scores and to different areas, not to mention collect gifts and cousins. Otherwise you use the PS2 sticks the same as always. The other difference is that the Prince gets a bit tired from doing dashes and stays that way for a bit longer, which is a little annoying to be honest.

The "Tribute" part of the game comes because really, there's not a whole lot of new material here. Whether it be items or even levels, chances are if you've played the previous incarnations of the games you've already seen all of the levels available.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid fun, but a bit hackneyed now... October 1, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I now own three Katamari games - Katamari Damacy, We Love Katamari, and Katamari Forever. And while this one might be the "best" of the bunch, I'm starting to wonder...about the wonder. The fact is, we have all been here before. Literally.

"Katamari Forever" essentially repeats the stages from "Katamari Damacy" and "We Love Katamari". And when I say repeat, I mean it literally. You'll see a race stage. You'll see a sumo stage. You'll see a stage to create the moon. You'll see an underwater stage. Yes, the total number of stages are pretty staggering (and more so when one considers the different modes - more on that in a moment). But they are just like their earlier counterparts. OK - so the graphics are in HD. I wasn't aware that this game was selling itself on graphical prowess.

But anyway, on to

Pros:

- Fun. This game is still fun. And while I have played nearly all of these stages before, it doesn't change the fact that it is a lot of fun to create a massive sumo that eats an entire town.
- Game Modes. OK - Katamari Forever mode is what you expect, and if the whole game was simply this, it would rate 3 stars. But then, you unlock "Katamari Drive" mode, which puts everything into super speed. And honestly, this is what Katamari should be about. The super speed levels (and you can play them ALL in super speed) are, simply put, the most fun I've ever had playing Katamari. Play well enough here, and you can unlock Eternal mode, which allows you to roll as long as you want on any stage. It's great if you are wanting to complete your collection, but it's also nice if you just want to roll a really, REALLY big Katamari.

3.0 out of 5 stars More of the same, for the 4th time. January 18, 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I was lucky enough to get the first Katamari game for the ps2 when it first came out, and experience it before seemingly everyone got Katamari fever. The game was completely original, fun, had an excellent soundtrack, and I place it in my top 10 ps2 games. It got a sequel fairly quickly, and then another one on the PSP a few years later. I enjoyed the PSP game a bit, though was a bit curious as to why so many levels from the first game (and apparently the second, though I never got to play it all the way through) were in there. Now with Katamari Forever, I can see that the developers don't know what to do with this franchise, and it's easy to see why the creator has moved on to other things- this is more of the same.

If you haven't played a Katamari game before, then you'll probably really enjoy this game, and can add another star to the rating. You play as the Prince, a little green guy who rolls around a Bumble Ball-looking object called a Katamari. You roll it around rooms, streets, towns, and over the entire world eventually, collecting everything in your path. Your Katamari will start out small, but can grow to be thousands of kilometers in size! An example being that you start out in someone's messy bedroom, but after you collect enough, you'll be big enough to pick up cars and people outside, and after that, you'll be picking up islands, boats and entire countries. When done in a level, your Katamari is used to create an object in space like a star, satellite or planet. It's totally fun, and somehow relaxing, though there are a few problems I'll get into in a bit. You control the Prince/Katamari with both analog sticks- if you want to move forward, you tilt both up, etc.

If you even like Katamari a little then you should buy this. If you go through the entire game in all modes you can spend days-weeks on it. Read more
