    Polarising as it might be, it's something everyone should try, because it's also the perfect example of how games can be used to a genuinely artistic outcome.

    Katamari Damacy Reroll succeeds in replicating the magic of the original title, with only minimal improvement needed to make it appealing to modern audiences. The core concept remains unique among the greater swath of games, and the simple act of using everyday objects to create a whimsical ball of destruction never gets old. The goofiness remains, as does the wonder of seeing what kinds of random things you'll pick up. Katamari Damacy Reroll is a classic and a must-have for just about every Switch owner.

    Katamari Damacy Reroll is as simple, silly, and superbly entertaining as it was more than a decade ago. The main experience stays intact, but the remaster does enough to make anyone interested in this game smile. Here’s hoping that Bandai Namco takes this reimagining and invests in the original sequel next.

    Crazy, alienating, funny: a title that every gamer should try at least once.

    From its quirkiness in its aesthetic to its unique level design and progression, Reroll kept me entertained from start to finish while holding a polish that you should expect from a remaster.

    REROLL doesn’t deviate too much from the original that came out almost 15 years ago and frankly that’s a great thing. It’s a short experience, but it’s replay value is pretty high. Completing the collection, finding all the presents, unlocking all the cousins for multiplayer, getting comets for beating each stage’s par time, and building the biggest katamari possible on each stage should keep players occupied for a while.

    If you’ve never played Katamari before, there’s no reason not to pick this up over the original release on the PS2. The game is still a delight, and while it may make you dizzy, picking up objects and watching your katamari grow with all sorts of random objects will always be a delight. If you’ve played this before, though, there’s really nothing new here that’s worth trying out.

This is an all time favorite, and the port onto the Switch is in HD and has never looked better. The colors are bright; rolling is as smooth as ever, and the quirkiness of the game will have you rolling your worries away far into the night. Very few games are a must have, but this one ranks above just about all of them. It's perfect for kids and adults alike. Nothing beats the King of All Cosmos waking up the day after a huge bender making his son fix yesterday's machinations to one of the best soundtracks in gaming history. Na... na na na na na na na na na na na na na... Enjoy. Expand

Every single thing in this game is oozing with soul, even as a remake for crying out loud, this is one of those games where I just feel like you can't mess it up, it's fun, it's enticing, it's unique, it's charming, it's got an amazing soundtrack. Play this game if you haven't, you haven't lived until you played it. Expand

    Excellent game. I played all of the previous in the franchise including the terrible PSP version. This is perfect for the Switch. The artisticExcellent game. I played all of the previous in the franchise including the terrible PSP version. This is perfect for the Switch. The artistic graphic style holds up really well in HD. Got while at the Gamestop Smash launch. I think I was the only dude in line picking this up too lol. Im not going to reduce my score because the asymmetrical analog sticks take a little away vs a Dualshock. This is a must have game for anyone on the switch if you like quirky Japanese games and want something different. Have not tried to 2 player mode yet, really looking forward to it. Expand

Katamari is a fantastic franchise with a simple but insanely fun concept. I've played several Katamari games in the past and this game works great on the switch. Full of charm, humor, and creativity with lots of fun little surprises. All the levels are fun to play over and over again, and it's fun to try to find the hidden gifts!
    There were a few disappointments for me, however. There were some features included in Katamari Forever for PS3 that I wish were implemented here. I miss being able to choose a different cousin to play as as well as finding them within the levels. I also wish that the pause menu in single player gave you the option to restart the level rather than just the two options of going back to the home planet or continuing. Not being able to jump took a bit of getting used to, but being a damacy remake I understood why that is. If you've played previous katamari games, the asymmetrical control sticks can be tricky to get a hang of at first but if you keep at it it becomes second nature. Definitely one of my favorite games for the switch!

    This game is boring and a total waste of money. Was looking for a new switch game and was disappointed.
