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!

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.
