  • Excerpt: Beautiful Katamari is the latest in a series of games which often come up in discussions about whether video games are art. Its deceptively simple premise focuses on a cosmic king trying to repair the universe by directing princes and princesses to roll items up in a ball to make stars, planets and...

Beautiful Katamari Review

  • Excerpt: Let’s flashback to late 2004 for a moment. There’s a dank, foul smell in the air created by unimaginative RPGs and carbon-copied first-person shooters starting to rot. It’s almost like developers decided to throw awful games into a cloning machine in the hopes of making some quick milk money.

  • Conclusion: Not having had the privilege of playing any of the first Katamari games I was unsure in what to expect with Namco Bandai’s latest, Beautiful Katamari. In a way this could be viewed as an advantage, I’m approaching the game somewhat fresh and without bias, the downside being – if I was a great fan of...

14 July 2008
  • Conclusion: I’ve heard this described as “charming” and “original” but this may just be one of the trippiest, weirdest gaming experiences of my life. But no matter how odd it tries to be (and it tries really hard), it’s really quite a simple concept.
  • Pros: Simple, addictive gameplay, There’s nothing else like it on the 360
  • Cons: PS2 graphics in 720p – whoopdedoo!, Sometimes suffers from a dumb camera, And always suffers from weird controls, Heavily stylised graphics won’t appeal to everyone

  • Conclusion: Beautiful Katamari is brought to us by Namco Bandai and is the fourth in a series that first appeared on the PS2. The questions are: does this iteration of the series warrant yet another purchase if you have been a fan since the first title on the Playstation 2 and will it's undoubtedly quirky and...

Beautiful Katamari Review

26 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Atari founder Nolan Bushnell was in the news this week defending his wholesale rejection of modern games as "trash" by pining after games that left you struggling for context and means of comparison. Katamari Damacy was and remains among those games.

Beautiful Katamari - Test

Gamefox
3 December 2008
  • Conclusion: Der einst so faszinierend kultigen Kugelei geht langsam, aber sicher die Puste aus. Natürlich macht das Spielprinzip nach wie vor Spaß, es ist aber schon sehr frech, wie die Entwickler sich abseits der neuen Mehrspieler-Features jeglichen frischen Ideen verweigern.
  • Pros: gewohnt unterhaltsame Spielidee, genial kultige Inszenierung
  • Cons: miese technische Umsetzung, keine Neuerungen, Perspektivenmängel, gewöhnungsbedürftige Steuerung, wenige Levels

  • Conclusion: Technisch wird die Xbox 360 sicherlich nicht durch Beautiful Katamari an die Grenzen getrieben. Die Grafik ist stark japanophil angehaucht und eher als witzig und detailarm zu beschreiben.
