Summary: While I admire the fact that this wacky franchise continues on to a next-gen system, and the same quirky humor can be found in many of the Kings rants and throughout the levels, they have just tweaked this game too much to really appreciate it.
Summary: If you've enjoyed either of the previous Katamari games,you're going to love this one. Pretty much the same deal - start as a tiny little ball boy, and roll stuff up until you can roll up the world - then the solar system. Nice to see it on the Xbox 360, but it's still pretty much the same game.
Good game for veterans, too many issues to recommend it to new players

Summary: Beautiful Katamari feels like a port or an expansion pack. It packs competent levels that play well but do not really innovate. It plays well enough to be worthwhile for fans of the series, but has too many problems to be recommended as someone's first Katamari game.
Summary: I was really excited to learn that Katamari was coming to the 360. I thought we would be able to roll the biggest Katamari ever at lightning fast speeds, have 3 times as many areas to explore, a killer new soundtrack and tons of online playability.

Summary: I love the other Katamari games but I found this one a bit of a disappointment. The graphics are exactly the same as the other games in the series even though this game is on a new system and the stages look very similiar.
Summary: This my first time playing a Katamari game, and although many of the levels are fun, it gets somewhat stale later on in the game. The controls take a while to understand, and I don't know why they weren't simplified by this point.
Summary: I have to say I was a little disappointed. I have Katamari Damacy and We <3 Katamari for ps2, so I was glad they were releasing an xbox360 version since that's what console I went to next. So of course I had to get it. But honestly, We <3 Katamari was so much better.
