Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
I must admit this is the first Katamari I played so I didn't have previous games to compare this with altough this isn't that big a deal :D
Long story short: You play a tiny dude that must create celestial bodies with common items found on earth... go!
+ Customizability. Not that it changes the gameplay itself but it's possible to find new skins (the so-called cousins) and accessories. Some are real fun so it might be worth your time to look for them.
+ Unique gameplay mechanics. By now everybody knows it but that doesn't diminish the fact that this is a pretty darned weird game.
+ Difficulty. Most levels are hard... others are brutal :D This is a good thing because you'll mostly be rollin' in places you've been before, forcing you to prioritize.
+ Graphics. Not the quality but the cuteness! This game is hard but never frustatingly so because of the way this game looks.
- Levels. There aren't too many and you'll be doing them multiple times.
- Difficulty. A challenge is real nice but sometimes it's absurd. I still shiver when I think about the mission where you've got to get your Katamari to 1000° Celsius... And getting Endless mode is quite a pain as well.
- Online. I really think they've missed a good chance there but ok...
