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

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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
