  • Excerpt: I’ll be the first to admit that while I like puzzles in a game, I don’t really like games that focus on puzzles as the core of their game play. I mean I liked Tetris as much as the next person, but it wasn’t a terribly compelling game at all. Anyone who knows my gaming habits knows that I go for story and action in my games. So, I picked up Katamari Damacy with a little trepidation and not a lot of expectation.
  • Pros: + Fun to play.
  • Cons: - Not that great looking.

  • Excerpt: If there's one thing the Japanese know how to do it's "weird." I've always wondered what the meetings to produce such games looked like. I'm assuming they involve lots of drugs and porn.
  • Pros: + Simple fun
  • Cons: - Almost too weird

Lost in Translation

  • Excerpt: So what exactly is a Katamari? Well you see it's a..ah...Well it's shaped a like a um..Urhm, well you see, it has bumps all over it and the way it works is umm....Hck, I don't know. All I know is that the title of the game is "Katamari Damacy" which translates from Japanese to "clump of souls." How do I know this? Well I have my sources. Unfortunately, the game itself does not translate so easily as the name. Let's not beat around the bush here any longer.
