Katamari Damacy Reroll
Top Critic Average
Katamari Damacy Reroll is a great chance to explore one of gaming’s most revered cult hits. The gameplay might not be all that creative after a while, but it’s still a whacky, whimsical game of colors and shapes and rolling around that definitely merits a playthrough.
EXCELLENT - The original Katamari Damacy is a timeless game, and this updated version is a great improvement with its new HD graphics. Some might have issues with the motion controls, but luckily the traditional stick controls are here as an option as well. It doesn’t get much zanier than this!
Katamari Damacy REROLL is a nice stroll down memory lane. While the graphical touchup could’ve been more substantial, the game itself remains quite a joy to play years later.
Reroll reaffirms that 14 years after its debut, Katamari Damacy remains a bright streak of design vision and an iconic waft of imagination. It’s the kind of no-fuss game that’s fantastic in short bursts, which makes it well suited to the handheld console (I played through a lot of this in bed while interstate and visiting my folks, for example). It’s a fun world to flitter in and out of, and it has one of the best soundtracks imaginable. I do wonder if Bandai Namco could have done more than just plonking the original game out here, but I guess at the end of the day they knew what they had held up, in all its grand simplicity, pretty well.
Katamari Damacy REROLL is a great way to experience a title you may well have missed.
Katamari Damacy is one of those games that everyone should play at least once.
All in all, it is so good to have a Katamari game on Nintendo Switch. Katamari Damacy Reroll is a brilliant game and is one for anyone who wants something truly unique, the weird gameplay and wonderful sense of humour combine to make a game that will have you quizzically smiling throughout, then promptly jumping back in to see if you can beat your last scores. You’ll have a hard time stopping once you start rolling.
Even more than a decade after its original release, Katamari Damacy REROLL still holds up and is beautifully charming. However, if you've played the original, you won't find any reasons to replay the game here.

Katamari Damacy Reroll brings a 15 year old game to Switch. The graphics can look a little bit outdated sometimes, but the whole concept of the game is great for the Nintendo Switch and also allows more people to enjoy this weird but fun game
