A great port of a nine year old PSP game, LocoRoco 2 Remastered is as fun as it has ever been. Colourful and downright adorable, it's a game that everyone can (and should) play.

Aside from some more inventive level design and a couple of new bells and whistles to keep you occupied, LocoRoco 2 Remastered is more of the same, which in our book is no bad thing. There's little here that will surprise you, but it does just as good a job as the first game in providing a simple, grin-inducing few hours. We've rather enjoyed revisiting both titles this year, and we think fans old and new will still get a lot of fun out of them. Games as jovial as this one don't come around very often these days, so if you're after something light, you'll have a ball.

Yet another solid remaster will likely make some gamers wish for a proper sequel in this hyper-cute franchise. The increase in resolution allows LocoRoco 2's cheery art style to brilliantly shine, though this entry's cutscenes leave a bit to be desired. Still, the core of this classic has not been touched, and this remains the same LocoRoco 2 many gamers have fond memories of. Pick this up if you're a fan of the series, or especially if you never tried the original release and want the best version available.

A charming and attractive looking and sounding game that you can't help but smile at. More variety and enjoyable modes are a marked improvement over the first game.

Nostalgic feelings in HD with catchy music? Well, that's LocoRoco 2. I've really had some fun playing this again. It aged pretty well and can be recommended to anyone who missed this PSP classic.

Colorful & delightful, LocoRoco 2 Remastered is simply a great option for all players to revive one of the cutest experiences ever in platforming games. Don't miss it, if you have the chance; it's deeper than it seems.

Sometimes, after hours spent blasting Nazis, Zombies, Aliens and Alien Nazi Zombies, you just want to unwind with a relaxing title that's not going to hinge on how quick your reflexes are. LocoRoco 2 is that title, for me at least, although it must be said that, beneath the deceptively simplistic veneer, the gameplay can actually get quite challenging at times.

As with the first game, LocoRoco 2 Remastered is an unremarkable remaster of a delightfully charming game. The game's bright and colourful visuals pop in higher resolutions, and the music comes to life through bigger speakers than the PSP offered. It's a pity that like other PSP remasters, the cut scenes are a blurry mess, but that's a minor complaint.

LocoRoco 2 brings to the table a solid platform experience that resembles too closely its predecessor. Homewever, the game is still higly recommended for all those who loved the first chapter.

LocoRoco 2 Remastered certainly gets the job done and while it is shorter than the original, there's a ton of side content present. Its charming, minimalist detail looks great on the whole and runs as smoothly as one could hope for. The omission to that is with the low resolution cutscenes, which is somewhat ironic considering the emphasis on 4K in the marketing, but LocoRoco 2 Remastered is more of the same, which can only be a good thing.

LocoRoco 2 Remastered is a solid enhancement over the original release that fails to iron out all of the kinks I would have liked. The simplistic platforming and inventive level design are occasionally let down by imprecise controls, although this is far from a dealbreaker.

This review was perhaps a little harsh towards LocoRoco 2, a game that is aimed at children; specifically stupid children.
