Summary: I loved the original Katamari Damacy. It knocked my socks off. It was fun, quirky, original; it was my favorite game. I loved We Love Katamari. The controls were a little less sensitive, which meant that the learning curve was not so steep.
Summary: I'm going to fully explain why this title deserves what i've given it, a 2 star. First of all, i'm not a fledgeling roller, i've played and beaten the previous two katamari games on the playstation. and i have to say this one simply does not do them justice.

Summary: Namco must have fired their innovators & replaced them with the laziest programmers on the planet. Beautiful Katamari feels like a quick port to a new platform without much thought or creativity put into the effort.
Summary: I'm very disappointed in the new Katamari game! One of the things I really enjoyed about previous installments was the variety of challenges, but so far all of the levels fit the profile of make a katamari of x size in y amount of time.
Summary: This Katamari game isn't much different from the others. Near identical control scheme as the PS2 versions, and gameplay much the same. The graphics are much cleaner than the previous Katamari games, as is expected on the XBOX 360. However, they have not changed in style.
Excerpt: I don't generally say this about a game that doesn't involve football, but Beautiful Katamari is quite possibly one of the worst games I have ever had the displeasure to play. I'm getting ahead of myself though - I've just summarised my review before I've even started writing it.
Theres good diffrent, there weird diffrent. This is a bit of both

Excerpt: Beautiful Katamari, This game is one of the weirdest things I've ever played, and I've played all of Suda 51's game. Story: The story to this game... This game doesn't really have a damn story. Your a little green creature, only ever refereed to as a the Prince.
Conclusion: I bought this at 9.99 a day ago, thinking that at 9.99, it could be a forgotten gem, like viva pinata, but i was wrong. You could forgive the stale graphics for great playability or a great storyline, but this game has neither!
