Other than the poor quality of the cutscenes, LocoRoco is filled with oodles of charm, a soundtrack that delights, and the most adorable characters in any game ever. There's no escaping the happiness you feel when playing LocoRoco.
What we're left with is a decent port of PlayStation's happiest game. If you can forgive the occasional audio bug and a teensy bit of slowdown, you'll have a wonderful time with LocoRoco Remastered. Fans will no doubt pick this up regardless, but newcomers should expect a kaleidoscopic, sing-songy platformer with simple, tactile controls, a catchy soundtrack, and a decent variety of stages to roll through. It's well worth the price of entry, and a pleasant reminder that not all games need to make you feel empowered or make you think. Sometimes, it's enough simply to make you smile.
LocoRoco is an important piece of identity for PlayStation consoles, and this well executed remastered is an excellent opportunity to all who never played the original game on the PSP. More than ten years later, LocoRoco feels fresh with this remastered.

Ten years after its original release, LocoRoco is still an undeniably fun experience which has aged incredibly well, owing to its simple yet beautiful aesthetic as well as its unique and straightforward gameplay. While the remaster doesn't add much in terms of content, fans of the original might enjoy replaying one of the PSP's most delightful exclusives at a higher resolution and with the new motion controls. And those who weren't able to play it on the PSP will definitely enjoy the endearing yet brief experience of LocoRoco in its best form yet.
LocoRoco Remastered reminds us how unique and fun the game was back in 2006. Its trigger-based gameplay gives a new taste to the plateformer genre, and the level design never ceases to renew itself. Unfortunately, this reissue do not offers any new content when there was so many things to think of.

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.
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!
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.

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).

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.
