Beautiful Katamari

Game Over Online
16 November 2015
  • Excerpt: When Katamari Damacy hit the scene a few years back and became a cult hit, no one expected to see the Katamari series’ popularity and influence soar like they did. If you had told me at the time that we’d be seeing its influence in pop culture-licensed games like Jackass: the Game and the Simpsons...

Beautiful Katamari

Fragland

  • Excerpt: It looks completely wacko, has lots of happy colours and is all about a sticky ball… That has to be a Katamari game. With Beautiful Katamari, the series leaves the Sony platforms for the first time.

  • Excerpt: Beautiful Katamari is the latest in a series of games which often come up in discussions about whether video games are art.

Fight Night Round 4 Review

IGN Entertainment
25 June 2009
  • Conclusion: I have mixed feelings about the changes to the Total Punch Control system as well. The original layout was genius, one of the most innovative control schemes for any game ever, boxing or not. Everything from punching, blocking and weaving was on the two sticks and two triggers.

Puzzle Quest: Galactrix

Hooked Gamers
2 April 2009
  • Conclusion: Puzzle Quest: Galactrix has dozens of quests to perform and this combined with the various puzzle types (crafting, haggling, Leapgates, searching for rumours, mining) will have the gamer playing for hours.

Beautiful Katamari

Game Vortex
26 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Beautiful Katamari is the series' first venture into the next-gen world (in fact, this would also be the game's first stint on a non-Sony system). While the game doesn't change its look or feel much with the extra horsepower that comes from the Xbox 360, the scale of the game seems to have grown.

Beautiful Katamari Review

VideoGamer.com
8 October 2008
  • Excerpt: You can't really pigeonhole Beautiful Katamari. Despite being the fourth game in the series, rolling things up on an increasingly large sticky ball still hasn't got old. You can't help but get a little excited when you finally roll up a ball big enough to pick up people or, later on, houses.

Expert Review

About
19 September 2008
  • Summary: The Katamari series is one of those unfortunate franchises that burned the brightest with its first release, and despite Namco Bandai’s attempts to recapture that magic in subsequent releases, it just hasn’t been the same. Beautiful Katamari continues that trend.
