\"Review:\" Loco Roco
OK. So. There's this game that's out in Europe & Japan. It's called Loco Roco. See, you use the L & R trigger/buttons to move the world. And this yellow thing (or pink, or blue, or etc.) rolls around.
This concept is obviously CRAZY to Japan since the game did shit in sales. I think it's the most charming game ever. You eat flowers, get bigger, strike yourself with lightning to break into pieces, and get to a handful of weeds to finish a stage. There's also some pretty raicst enemies.
Anyway, you roll around and beat stages. It pretty much redefines the platformer genre. It's a better Gish. A much better Gish. Fantastic level design with Katamary Damacy inspired music and personality unmatched by most contemporary titles results in a game that Japan, Europe and America should be all over.
If you were silly enough to buy a PSP at launch, this game pretty much quantifies the entire purchase. So when it comes out in America, you have two choices. Buy it or trade your PSP in for a DS.
I give it an 11 out of 3 for being very cute.
