An imaginative and perfectly presented platform puzzler that works just as well on a home console as it did on PSP.

I'm glad LocoRoco is back, even if it isn't as perfect as I remember it being when it first released 11 years ago. This remaster adds tilt controls, 4K/HD graphics, rumble, and surround sound, all for a reasonable price. If you've never played LocoRoco and you love cute games, now is the time. Those looking for a challenging game that will last them till the next big AAA release will want to look elsewhere.

With heavy hitters like Horizon, Nioh, Yakuza 0, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, there's no shortage of fantastic exclusives on PlayStation 4 this year. That said, Sony continues to galvanise this lineup with a stalwart range of remasters. As with PaRappa, LocoRoco hasn't been idly slapped together – there's a thoughtfulness and diligence there, preserving the original look and feel of the game in a way modern audiences can now appreciate.

This game still is a very funny and entertaining installment where music and graphics are a true beauty, even thoguh its remastered version is not as good as it could be.

Despite certain control limitations and its short duration, this game retains all its charm and joyful spirit. It looks great in 4K, by the way.

Despite being more than 10 years old, LocoRoco is still a beautiful and entartaining game, thanks to a deep gameplay, a brilliant level design and a relaxed atmosphere. The remastered is not that perfect (low-res cutscenes, a new – luckily, optional – motion-control system that is not so accurate), but fortunately LocoRoco aged very well.

There are few rhythm games that are as joyful or as fun as this. If you need a happy place, this should most definitely be it.

Though it perhaps worked best on the PSP, with alternative control methods and 4K graphics, it's a welcome addition to the PS4 library and I can only hope that more PSP classics receive similar treatment.

Eleven years have passed, but LocoRoco is still wonderful to look and enjoyable to play. The level design is top-notch, and the art direction is truly beautiful. It could've been a perfect game, were it for some minor flaws in the control system.
