The subject line is supposed to have a heart symbol in it - but it didn't come out right. So it should just read: We Love Katamari. Anyway, I just got this last night. It's basically the same experience from Katamari Damacy, only with slightly better graphics and slightly more defined level goals. Can't say I have any reason to complain, though the sense of "discovery" is (by necessity) diminished this time. There's not quite the same feeling of awe as a world comes into focus around you. The game is aware of its own status as a cult phenomenon, and doesn't fail to remind you of it. This is pretty hilarious actually, but does make it a little less charming than the original. This time around, the King talks... A LOT. So do other characters (before and after levels, especially). You might find yourself pressing the start button to skip past all the explanatory dialogue just to get to the game. The music is really quite good, but not quite the catchy revelation of KD. Some of the songs are experiemental remixes of earlier tunes ... and some of it is very noisy. The two-player modes are better this time. I especially like the cooperative levels (though the control is difficult unless you communicate with your partner), because I don't care much for split-screen. But if battle's your thing, you'll find a much more fun experience this time around. The worlds are much more fantastical and imaginative this time around, too. Big lakes, fantasy forests (complete with centaurs and gingerbread houses)... and of course the regular worlds we all love. Definitely pick this up if you liked the original. Just don't expect an evolution in gameplay.
