The quirky, zany and oh-so-Japanese style pushed the concept of gaming for me in all sorts of unique and odd directions. I will say here and now that Katamari Damacy ranks as one of my favorite gaming experiences of all time.
That means that I was right there as the series lost momentum and began to spit and sputter its way through We Love Katamari, Me and My Katamari (PSP), I Love Katamari (iPhone, the one with broken controls) and Beautiful Katamari (360). The charm and appeal to the series degraded through issues in control and graphical slowdown and clipping. As the consoles and methods evolved, this game stayed the same and then started to get worse. As a fan that wanted more and more from Katamari, it started to get frustrating when I got less and less. I still loved the series and the experiences within, of course, but it just wasn't the same..."
