Excerpt: Downloadable for £1.99 via PSN, we're not sure LocoRoco Cocoreccho is a game at all. Sony has called it an interactive screen saver, but we'd say it's more like Lemmings, except without the danger, so you can just put the controller down and trip out, if you were so inclined. Fans of the first LocoRoco game on the PSP who were hoping for more of the same will be disappointed.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is When the PSP hit the gaming scene one of the first games that came bundled with it was LocoRoco. Players had no idea what the game was about until they sat down with it for a few hours and surrendered to its addictive gameplay. the objective was simple – lead a couple of dancing colourful blobs around a level until you get to the end, while avoiding the few evil ‘Moja’ (floating Bob Marleys) scattered around the level.
Conclusion: LocoRoco Cocoreccho is a very very fun game to play that happens to look beautiful on my Gaming HDTV in full 1080p resolution. It has some great functionality with the SIXAXIS controler the song the little LocoRoco sing is just too cute not to like. It would be cool of Sony decided to make more levels for this one, but since it only cost $5.99 at the Playstation Store, you really can't complain too much about how short it is.
Summary: While the game isn't as deep or involving as
some other titles, LocoRoco more than compensates through its sheer charm and
coolness. Its simple, accessible controls means gamers of every level and stripe
should be able to jump right in and enjoy the gameplay without too much effort.
Its unique look and level designs are a sight to behold and the simple, yet
sophisticated graphics leap right off the PSP screen.
Conclusion: LocoRoco Cocorrecho! is the perfect package, easy to pick up but hard to master. If you haven’t already downloaded this game then at two pounds you can’t really be excused for not trying it out. For what it is, for what it sets out to do, I’d say the game was almost perfect. A shining example of what all mini-games should be and the most fun I’ve had with motion controller to date. Make a point of getting this game as soon as you possibly can! What more can I say?
Excerpt: When LocoRoco Cocoreccho was first announced for the PlayStation Network as an ‘interactive screensaver’ (lol wut) we weren’t that surprised. How could something so irresistible and loveable like LocoRoco be anything but slightly bizarre?
Excerpt: Was mögen sich die Entwickler von Sony Japan nur gedacht haben? Okay, sich für eine Fortsetzung frische Ideen auszudenken, ist grundsätzlich nicht verkehrt, insbesondere wenn der Sprung von der PSP auf die PS3 gewagt wird. Allerdings geht der Schuss nach hinten los, wenn ein knuffiger Geschicklichkeitsspaß mit genial-simplem Prinzip genau dieses verliert. Bei LocoRoco Cocoreccho!
Summary: Anfangs war ich schwer enttäuscht, dass die Entwickler das bekannte Spielprinzip des PSP-Originals in LocoRoco Cocoreccho! komplett über Bord warfen. Gerade das SIXAXIS Pad mit seinen Bewegungssensoren würde sich dafür doch geradezu anbieten. Hat man als LocoRoco Kenner diesen "Schock" aber erstmals überwunden und sich mit den neuen Steuerungsmöglichkeiten angefreundet, sorgt der Ausflug in die bunte, kindliche und stellenweise schrille Welt für fast genauso viel Spass...
