  My thumbs...they hurt

| | See all Splagbot's reviews (16)

Katamari on the PS2 was a great game. Really cheery and really addictive. This is pretty much the same but with controls that cripple your thumbs and leave you shaking your hands at the end of each level while saying things like 'ouch' and 'bloody hell'.

The PSP version also lacks variety in the missions and once you get to a certain point you will just be doing the same thing over and over again. It's cool the first time you roll up a skyscraper but after the 10th time of doing it on exactly the same level it loses it's appeal.

A Katamari, for the uninitiated, is a ball which is rolled around on the ground and used to stick things to. The idea is to collect as many things with the Katamari as you can within a certain period of time. It gets trickier when you're requested to collect specific kinds of things and that, in a nutshell, is that. The game is crazy, camp and, depending on your preferences, as addictive as hell! It's certainly more fun than it sounds and the creators have really gone to town on making 'Me and My Katamari' ooze with crazy Japanese style. If you're looking for something fun, different and original then this is probably worth a punt.
The only reason I'm not awarding it a perfect 5 is because the controls are little on the rubbishy side of things; I'm sure there would have been an easier way to control the Prince than having to rely on both the digipad AND the buttons to move the little fella around. It takes some getting used, is really not intuitive but, to be fair, with perseverance does start to make a little sense.
