    It only took me a couple of good sessions to play through everything Katamari Damacy Reroll had to offer, but the vast majority of those six or seven hours was spent with an enormous grin on my face, my head nodding along to the incredibly catchy, eclectic score. Katamari Damacy was a breath of fresh air on first release and it still is today, almost 15 years later.

    Wonderfully weird and inventive. Katamari Damacy isn’t perfect, but it holds its own impressively well 14 years on.

    Katamari Damacy REROLL is a fantastic experience for people who have never experienced the game before but it is a pretty barebones port on PC.

    It’s a delightfully bizarre adventure that everyone really needs to go on at least once. And even if you’re well-versed in Katamari Damacy, there’s no reason to not jump back in.

    Katamari Damacy Reroll is short, simple, but so very sweet. And at a price point as low as this, it's honestly hard not to recommend, even with all the great games that came out this Fall.

    Katamari Damacy is still very much worth playing, especially if you haven't done so before. It is disappointing how barebones the rerelease feels at the asking price of 30 dollars. Bandai Namco should have made Katamari's rerolling onto the scene just a little more spectacular, but even with those grievances, it is without a doubt a gem of a game. Katamari is still just as ridiculous and heartwarming as it was on the PlayStation 2.

    As a port of the original, Katamari Damacy REROLL is definitely a great way for people to try this bundle of rolling wackiness for the first time. Just note that it can get very repetitive very soon, and that it clearly comes from that awkward phase where 3D games weren't that refined.

    Great game but the port is less than ideal. Having played and finished the original several years ago on the original system, this port feelsGreat game but the port is less than ideal. Having played and finished the original several years ago on the original system, this port feels very good but I can't help but feel the experience is a little bit different. For me this game was a solid 9 on the original system, but this port comes up like a wasted opportunity to get it perfect and just as a "good enough" attempt at a port. It feels emulated at times, not really ported, also they didn't go any extra mile to make it at least a little bit more compelling.
    Great music, quirky, very original concept still to this day, relaxing, unique, but feels like they just wanted to sell an emulated 'port' instead of really doing an effort to revive the Katamari experience.
    I still give it a very high score becasue I hope this sells well enough, so Bandai Namco wants to make a new sequel (and soundtrack!) for this great IP.

    Le concept est intéressant et le côté décalé du jeu très amusant.

    Le concept est intéressant et le côté décalé du jeu très amusant.
    C'est sans doute un jeu que j'aurai adoré jouer enfant, sur ma PS2, mais clairement, aujourd'hui y jouer sur PC est très compliqué tant le gameplay est peu maniable et par moment désagréable.

    Je suis persuadé qu'avec quelques heures de jeu, je finirai par réussir à le prendre en main, mais à une époque où l'on a une infinité de choix, je vais choisir de passer mon temps sur des jeux plus abordable et moins prise de tête.
