Final Breakdown

Gameplay:

In a word, addictive.

Graphics:

The cel-shaded graphical style works better the larger the Katamari gets, and feels odd at the start, so I have to count it down a bit.

Sound and Music:

The charm of Katamari Damacy's music is back in full force - though repeating sounds in the game map can get annoying.

Difficulty:

You can expect constant challenges, and even going back to earlier stages is no easy task. Kudos to the game designers for letting players pass on to higher levels in the game without requiring robot-like memorization of the available maps.

Controls and Interface:

The controls for the Katamari series are quirky and odd - it doesn't feel 100% intuitive all the time, and mastering them will take quite a lot of patience.

Overall:

Ultimately, I've got to give this one four stars, with a hearty recommendation to purchase.
