Namco releases a big bunch of Beautiful Katamari Damacy screenshots, as a playable demo have just hit the 360 Marketplace yesterday. Besides the screens, we also learn that the game will showcase an online four players versus mode, as well as a leaderboard. Nice !

We Love Katamari is sold in Europe. I think demo is not in EU marketplace because it is in some magazines demo disc or something. Can't remember where I heard that...

I was disappointed they put a 3 min. time limit on the demo =( Like i know the real games have a time limit but really... 3 minutes? Also I like rolling stuff up =P

I expected the graphics to be updated, they look just like they did in the first game.

Nevertheless I'm gonna get it as I don't have PS2 or PSP.

Great demo. Controlls suck as usual :P

Way overrated.
As a game, most definitely. As a work? The first one? Not one bit. It's really just run out of things to say since then, and even more importantly, its charm has waned. Now it's just a has-been quirky game with controls that are just as weak as they ever were.

There's a reason publishers don't like this type of thing, you can't really bottle and resell it.

Wow, I swear the developers of this game must have been high when they made this. The game had fruity all over it, I mean you are rolling a ball around making it bigger and the music is...
Commented on 2007-08-16 09:44:30
Yeah, the music is really trippy, but the dialogues are very strange, too! I played the second game, and it was a very unusual experience, believe me. But it was fun! ...

The first Katamari was awesome, i really enjoyed it. Really. But i think that's because it had a weird but fun style, something i had never really seen before and well...it just doesn't work the third or fourth time around, you know? They could have at least upgraded the graphics a bit, something to make it stand out from it's predecessors.

About the game
