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. One problem I noticed with this game was that at times there were jerks and lags in gameplay.
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! It reminds me of the shoddy games delivered through the 1990's on the sega saturn!
Excerpt: "...done. Tomorrow I am taking Beautiful Katamari back from whence it came and using the refunded money to buy GTA4. Maybe I can pretend that the gangsters I blast are all the cousins of the Prince. I have never been hurt by something so beautiful. ...
Pros: Still quirky, hilarious and addictive gameplay .
