It’s unique, colourful and is great for short bursts of play. It’s simple enough for kids, and also complex enough for adults. Is it the next big hit? No.
All in all, this game is definitely not made for children as they would easily get frustrated by the puzzles and traps in this game. It's a puzzle platforming game at its core and if you just want to waste some time then this game is for you. But if you get frustrated easily with platforming then I suggest you look elsewhere.
PSVG new comer Tyler gets in on the audio review fun with LocoRoco remastered on PlayStation 4. Check it out if you feel this review interested you into trying the game!
The game is well put altogether. It has its moments when it gets mundane since you are doing the same action all throughout the levels. But along the way, bright crisp colors, lively characters, the uncanny way LocoRoco fluidly morphs to landscapes and the charming music makes players just play without any commitments and with no pressure on the story line.
A simple and cheerful game that you'll play to take part in its joy and hum along with its music more than to take on its challenges. Even with its flaws, more games of this kind are needed.

LocoRoco can be confusing, wearisome and infuriating at times, but it's still impossible to stay mad at it for long. It's a happy game without gratuitous conflict or drama, and its sheer optimism alone prevents its shortcomings from ruining the grand vision. It's a game which just works, and without a doubt, the PS4 remaster is the best way to experience it.
LocoRoco Remastered was a masterpiece in the platform genre, and it is again today. The gameplay and the level design didn't aged at all, and now LocoRoco is even more good looking on TV in the glory of 4K resolution (for PS4 Pro users).

In contrast to PaRappa, LocoRoco is a good remaster. The game has aged very well in the past decade. LocoRoco is still adorable, overjoyed and it looks exceptionally good on the PS4. Only not so good thing are poor quality cutscenes.

With its smooth and bright visuals, catchy soundtrack and easy gameplay, LocoRoco Remastered is a great way to unwind and play something a little less serious. Not much has changed in eleven years since its initial release, but that goes to show how simple and solid a game it was at the time of release. Prepare to get stuck with earworms over the soundtrack though!
Over a decade later, and LocoRoco remains one of the bubbliest, most charming games I've encountered. Uniquely beautiful, LocoRoco's aged well too, and is still a delight to play.
