Pretty fun game, although the chatty King could be quiet!

Summary: This game is harder than it sounds, mainly because the King gives you only a certain amount of time to roll a ball of a certain size. That took some of the fun out of it for me. I just wanted to play and enjoy the fun of rolling things up into a giant ball, without worrying about a time deadline. However, since this is a game, I understand the need for a timer (but wouldn't it be fun to just roll the ball?).
Summary: This game was... WOW. Are there even any WORDS for this? xD It's hilarious, quirky, goofball-fun, with a serious twist, in a very Japanese way? Aahh, that sounds like a dating ad... Well, anyway, it's FANTASTIC! The only thing that genuinely disappointed me was that it was so short... I easily beat it in three days, but I guess that's what all the sequels are for, right?
Summary: Wholesome family puzzle game, where the player rolls a ball of pixels called a 'katamari' and picks up landscape feature, beginning with small dust particles and escalating into animals, boulders, and large cities. Sort of like 3-D pacman without the ghosts. I was able to play about 60% of the content, before the level requirements were beyond my hand-eye coordination.
Summary: This is a great game. The concept is that you are a little prince with a sticky ball that can pick up anything. Literally anything. There are many hilarious items that you can pick up, ranging from small to huge. The learning curve is a bit steep, but once you get it, the game gets really fun. My only problem is that the game is rather short. I beat it in about 3 hours. I definitely recommend it, definitely worth a play-through.
Summary: This game is lots of fun when you're bored, but when you go to use your save it won't let you select it. I thought it was my memory card, but I used others and it still did not let me select my save. argh!
Summary: I've been dying to get my hands on this game for a long time and jumped when I saw Amazon had it. Just as I expected its similar to the Munchables on the wii. Gameplay: When you start the game you are placed in a training level that allows you to get used to the controls and using the Katamari. Trust me you'll need it. It took me awhile to get used to controlling the Katamari and even though i finished the game it still fills a bit akward at times.
Summary: This game is plenty of fun and is especially good for the non-traditional gamer as it isn't difficult at all to catch onto. It is quirky, weird, very unique and has this strange Japanese vibe going on, as stated in other reviews, but it is appropriate for all ages and fun for all in my opinion. My wife who never plays any video games got pretty into this game and played very often for a good while and we have enjoyed hours of this game together.
Summary: This game is so much fun! My wife and I have spent countless hours playing it both individually and against each other, and it doesn't lose any value in the replay. The only reason I gave it 4 stars for overall review is that I would like to have seen a few more multiplayer stages, either in the battle arena or included in The World (though I don't know if The World opens up for multiplayer at all yet). Absolutely worth buying, even at retail price.
