The Story
Living peacefully on a faraway planet, the LocoRoco and their friends, the Mui Mui, help grow vegetation and look after nature, making the planet a pleasant place to be, playing and singing the days away. When the Moja Troop comes to the planet to take it over, the LocoRoco do not know how to fight against these invaders from outer space. As such, the player assumes the role of "the planet" that is capable of tilting back and forth, and bouncing the LocoRoco in the air, to defeat the Moja Troop and rescue the LocoRoco. The player will also meet many different characters along the way, some of which are unknown to the player. The player must find out how to interact with these characters, and find out what they know, while determining if they are beneficial or should be avoided as foes. Mui Mui can be found in secret areas within the game.

Key Game Features:

  • 25 colorful new stages with hidden challenges to uncover
  • Enhance LocoRoco by collecting music notes
  • Play 6 exciting new mini games
  • Challenge friends Ad-hoc 4 player battle
  • New LocoRoco Actions: Climb into shells to roll and destroy obstacles, Swing on vines and Jump across grass blades, Sing together and collect notes, Swim underwater
Gameplay
The player controls the planet the LocoRoco inhabit to move the LocoRoco around. The player can also split larger LocoRoco into individual LocoRoco, and then recombine them. Splitting is required into order to fit through tight spaces and also solve many puzzles. (For example, smaller LocoRoco start singing when left idle for a while, which is required at the end of the levels.) There are 5 worlds to clear, each consisting of 8 levels.

The object of each level is to find and eat as many "berries" as possible to increase the size of the LocoRoco, to a maximum of 20. There are also "Pickories" and "Mui Mui" to find. The "Pickories" are used as currency for playing the minigames Mui Mui Crane and Chuppa Chuppa, while the "Mui Mui" unlock more minigames and music for the Loco House. The player must also be careful to avoid enemies, mainly "Burrs" (spiky obstacles) and "Moja", which can cause them to lose LocoRoco or even die if the last LocoRoco is lost.

LocoRoco 2 is an absolute blast. This game is addictive, easily accessible and a joy for all ages. If you have played the first LocoRoco, the mechanics have not changed. The controls remain seductively simple and for the most part, the difficulty scales appropriately. As others have mentioned, there is a new stage select system. It is less sterile, more organic than the menu in the first game. While it takes a little getting used to, I find it an improvement that adds to the overall feel of the game. Additionally, there are several new mini games which offer a break from the traditional platform game. They are a very welcome addition and serve to break up the action a bit. My personal favorite is the Mui Mui House. As you play through the games stages, you collect items which allow you to build and furnish a house for all the Mui Muis that you rescue! For example, it takes 3 specific items to build a guitar. Once it's in your house, a Mui Mui will pick it up and play it. As he does so, you can hear a guitar added to the soundtrack. As silly as this sounds, it is incredibly fun and rewarding.

I have heard LocoRoco described as the happiest game ever and I could not agree more. It is hard not to smile while you are playing it. : )

The Good: Charming visuals, fun mini-games, relaxed play style

The Bad: Finicky jumping mechanics, secrets are really tough to find, collecting items feels pointless, almost identical to the last game, grows tiresome quickly

LocoRoco was one of the PSP's killer apps and brought cute platforming fun to the handheld. LocoRoco 2 is a disappointment because of how little it changes from the first game. The gameplay and graphics are unchanged with just new levels and bosses. There are a lot of things to collect, but the mechanics a second time around just seem a bit frustrating.

You control the blobs by tilting the world with L and R and pressing both to jump. This is fine except I wanted more control. Some levels require precise jumping and tilting the world doesn't provide that precision. There are underwater levels that feel the same way, but I really enjoyed the mini-games however, they were short lived and only last seconds. The goal is to get to the end of the level while collecting pickories, fruits to make yourself bigger, and knocking out and Moja along the way. You can help out creatures by having enough fruits and using a pretty simple rhythm mini-game to earn rewards. These rewards come in pieces to help build the Mui Mui's giant treehouse. This is great for kids, but as an adult this is just kind of boring and feels useless.

The game uses physics for everything and it works well enough, but just feels a bit floaty. The boss fights are extremely difficult and I couldn't get past the second main boss. The jumping mechanics just aren't precise enough for this, but it doesn't make it a bad game. You have to use momentum to be able to jump up high so tilting left and right until you get enough speed then jumping becomes tedious.

This is one of the first games I ever had for my PSP and it's also the first game I played that made me happy to own my PSP. The gameplay is really unique and the visuals and sound are pleasant and colorful. I recommend this game strongly. Its a good deal.

I was looking for a game for my daughter but there seem to be a lot of boy-related games for PSP. I saw this here on amazon and it had many good reviews so I thought I'd give it a try. Well, it's a hit. My daughter loves it. She likes all the silly shaped characters and she really gets into the games. It seems really different than other games she has (for Wii and DS) and so that is a nice change. She wants to look for Loco Roco 1, which I didn't even notice when I bought this. But no rush. She is still hooked on Loco Roco 2 for now.

I have never been the biggest videogame enthusiast since I am more of a puzzle and challenge kind of girl rather than action adventure or shoot em up game. I just recently purchased a PSP so I had a change of pace from my Cooking Mama and Super Mario Bros on the DS that you have to use the pointer for most of the time to play (sometimes I just want to play a good ole fashioned videogame). I turned this on and literally have had to make a large effort to put it down since! It is challenging enough that you have to think about things however it isn't to the point where you just get frustrated and give up and refuse to play the game anymore ha ha. I can see how if you are a crazy action fanatic this can get boring for you, however if you are like me and like the puzzles but don't want to be stumped into not being able to do anything in the game then this is the game for you. I am looking into purchasing the first one as well since apparently it has more levels yet the same type of play.

One of the most brilliant games on the PSP is back for a second helping, and it does NOT disappoint. Really, this is one of those PSP games that will have your unit shutting off because you didn't notice how long you had been playing and how low your battery is running. Like its predecessor, LR2 is a classic because it is so simple to learn and easy to control, yet you need skill and practice to pick up all the berries, mui muis, and other bonuses. Apparently there aren't as many worlds in this sequel as in the original game, but there are more goals to achieve in each world, including collecting and playing musical notes. There are also new minigames, including some sort of jousting game with ad hoc multiplayer support. Game levels and graphics, plus the variety of game play, are again inspired. LR2 is quite simply a must-have for PSP owners, and one of the most exciting exclusive titles for the system. Just about the most fun $20 can buy you these days.
