A throwback to all the good things the Katamari series has brought us. A bit too recycled, but c'mon, it's Katamari!
Katamari veterans might be a little bored by this game. Again, this is essentially the "Best of Katamari." If you own and played every game, you'll quickly realize that half of Katamari Forever is just a recycling of the old. However, the game boasts a few new levels to pique your Katamari interests, along with all your favourite Cousins, and a blatantly weird J-Pop story as always. The graphics are absolutely phenomenal, and a feature allows for plays to switch the graphic styles from "classic," to cel-shading, wood, and others. An online leaderboard allows for competition on the big ol' internet, and of course there's room for some good ol' fashioned sit-down-with-your-buddy multiplayer fun.
And let's not forget the music. As another tribute, all the old songs have been redone and remixed, with lots of electronic and 8-bit jubilant along with the expected bubblegum J-pop delightfulness. And c'mon, it's Katamari! This is one of the simplest, funnest games on the market these days, and it's all kinds of fun. Let it absorb you.
