    I've never tried the katamari series, so I'm wondering if it's a good game, and I don't wanna waist 8 bucks. There are mixed reviews from the customers, so what are your guys' thoughts on it?

    Do you have PSP or PS2? If yes, you'd better play it on those. The graphics look much better and the framerate is way higher too.

    I honestly think that I wasted my money on it. It's alright, but I barely play it. At least I don't play it enough for it to be worth as much as it was.

    I don't remember the price but if you really liked that Katamari series, get it!

    I also did NOT like it. Sure I didn't play it a ton before I reviewed it, BUT
    the frame rate was so bad and jerky, I didn't want to play it any longer.
    Check YouTube for reviews of this game before you buy it.
    (Maybe it's better now, I don't know)

  8. i don't understand why they spend the time to make such a huge and complex game, yet they are unable to spend a little effort to implement calibration for the tilt

    the lite version was so stupid, and the crappy framerate was still present. overall crappy game

    You can say that again.
    I wish more games used calibration also.

    It's not worth it

    There isn't much replay because the places are too small and get boring

    Wow, you're really stupid. I tried that, and there were no threads asking if i love katamari is worth 8 bucks. There are threads asking if people liked it, but I checked those, and none of them told me if it was worth the money.

    ...You see, some people think before they talk (in this case, type) which is something I did, by checking the search, unlike you did, and unlike stupid people like you ever do.

    They did have tilt calibration in v1.0.0. You can tap the little guy at the bottom corner, but it was unclear so they removed it in the new update.

    So I'm guessing it's not a good idea to buy it...;)

    i liked the lite version and its overall funniness but i just found it hard to control, i only had frame rate problems when the katamari changed size

    You can tell people to search without being an asshole about it. People like you make these forums worse than they need to be. Toucharcade would be better if you left, not him.

    have you read the rules?
    create less work for mods

    yes, i could have said it nicer but guess what, being mean gets the point across better.

    now back to the topic...

    i thought that the iphone katamari would be brilliant
    but the iphone can't hold that power yet
    the levels seem really short also
