Katamari Damacy Reroll
Top Critic Average
This remaster gives Katamari Damacy the high-definition graphics and keyboard support that you'd expect in a modern PC game, but that's all. Considering the game's excellence, that's just fine.
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.
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 The graphics can look a little bit outdated sometimes, but the whole concept of the game is great for the Nintendo Switch and also allows more people to enjoy this weird but fun game

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.
I found Katamari Damacy REROLL to be much more frustrating than fun. It lacks modern fundamentals like a good camera and intuitive control, made worse by ill-fitting time restrictions. It's a very repetitive game too, one that I really couldn't play for more than two levels at any given time. A minor HD coat of paint can't compensate here. I suspect Katamari Damacy, though a hit with most critics, will remain a sleeper of a game amongst players, even on Nintendo Switch.
Katamari Damacy Reroll brings the wildly original PS2 game into the modern era, with a true remaster perfect for the Nintendo Switch.
Katamari Damacy is one of those games that everyone should play at least once.
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.
Katamari Damacy Reroll is basically the same game that came out in 2004 but it looks a lot better and can be played portably.
Katamari Damacy is one the most enjoyable games in this industry and it will draw a smile on your face during all of its moment.
