  • Summary: not a great game. Levels get damn near impossible, which caused me to lose interest in the game.

Same as the PS3 Katamari Forever

  • Summary: I thought there would be some differences when i purchased this since it has a different name, but it's the same levels as Katamari Forever with fewer features.

Pretty average

  • 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. This game also features some sort of world map, which is painfully slow to navigate, because your character just sort of strolls everywhere.

Not as good

Laura T. "wolviechick121", Amazon

  • 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. The gameplay was longer, there were more interesting things to roll up. This one... it's just back to basic and has even fewer levels than the first game. I was kinda disappointed by that.

A Great Distraction

Shannon, Amazon

  • Summary: When you're in a bad mood, when you don't feel like using your head, or if you're just bored, this is the perfect game. I love this game because it's very relaxing. Don't get me wrong, it's extremely trippy and strange in all aspects, but it calms me down. I compare it to Geometry Wars. Your mind is focused when you play this game, but it feels numb because you seem to get lost in space (pun intended).

Crazy for Katamari

  • Summary: Not your normal game, very addictive regardless. Cant stop playing it! Content is low but if you like getting really good at something pointless, this is your game!

The most frustrating game in the series.

S. Forbes, Amazon
4 March 2009
  • 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. I found myself actually saying "I hate this" when I couldn't even complete the third mission.

Got it for my girlfriend, played it myself

Chris, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this game hoping to get my girlfriend more involved in my hobby. She enjoyed it, but not nearly as much as me. I never thought rolling a ball around for just a few minutes at a time could be so fun. The very last level seals the deal on this delightfully mindless game. A+.

Good game for veterans, too many issues to recommend it to new players

Matthew T. Weflen "Matthew Weflen", Amazon

  • 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. First, what it does right: The graphics are certainly improved. Widescreen 1080i really helps the visibility of your target objects, which makes the game fun to play and watch.

Same old, same old...

Adam C. Pare "developmentalist", Amazon
26 June 2008
  • Summary: If you really really love Katamari then you should buy this game. If you really like the first two Katamari and were hoping for an evolution of the series, then you'll probably be disappointed. It's the same game, only the King is now impossible to please and makes you feel bad about yourself all the time. Also now that it is in HD it sometimes makes me nauseous.
