Reviewed October 14, 2005

John L says: "Fortunately, the gameplay takes itself about as seriously, featuring diverse wackiness ranging from haddocks that flop about inside of your doom sphere to innocent bystanders that run away screaming as if they'd just seen Godzilla.

midwinter says: "Katamari Damashii is a typically Japanese game. And by that I don't mean to infer that it features school girls. Actually for that matter there is also absolutely zero tentacle content and the mandatory giant robot action is mysteriously absent. There are no hard working maids, no panty flashes, no sailor suited defenders of the universe, nada. Heck, there isn't even a single fireball, be it a sho-ryu-ken or otherwise! That Katamari Damashii has forgone these tried and true staples of Japanese p..."

Katamari Damacy is the very definition of a cult title. Japanese, madder than a bag of spanners, and subject to limited release. Now Namco is giving PS3 owners the chance to relive the insanity, though only in Japan. For now, at least. full article
