Katamari Damacy Reroll
Top Critic Average
Wonderfully weird and inventive. Katamari Damacy isn't perfect, but it holds its own impressively well 14 years on.
Reroll gives a whole new generation the chance to experience this wonderful Japanese fever dream.
Still one of the most original and entertaining video games there's ever been, with a surreal sense of humour that permeates every corner of the gameplay and presentation.
For those who haven't yet given Katamari Damacy a shot, if you long for the unexpected and uncomplicated, Katamari Damacy REROLL offers respite from the norm of today's games. If you've always had a soft spot for the series, this is your chance to relive the joys of proving yourself through a brighter, more clearly defined lens.
Whenever there's a conversation about video games and if they can be considered art, Katamari Damacy needs to be involved. 15 years ago, it arrived on PlayStation 2 touting an absolutely unheard of style of gameplay, art and music. 15 years later on the Nintendo Switch, and it remains one of a kind. Katamari Damacy is a wholly unique video game, and it is an unabashed love letter to the copy-and-paste pop aesthetic of Japanese 1990s pop culture. It's bright, weird, silly and cute, and is a must play for anyone, anywhere.
A clean and easy HD version that doesn't mess with the perfect formula of the original. Katamari is amazing today as it was 14 years ago.

Katamari Damacy REROLL is a fantastic experience for people who have never experienced the game before but it is a pretty barebones port on PC.
This remains the magical, bizarre, joyful and utterly peculiar game that earned its place in gaming history. It also remains very short (about four hours at a slow pace?), but also extremely replayable, with so many targets to meet. And it’s very funny, in a super-dark way.
Katamari Damacy Reroll is as simple, silly, and superbly entertaining as it was more than a decade ago. The main experience stays intact, but the remaster does enough to make anyone interested in this game smile. Here's hoping that Bandai Namco takes this reimagining and invests in the original sequel next.
