LocoRoco 2 Review
Posted on April 27, 2009 by Oscar Gonzalez

Loco Roco was a hit when it was released on the PSP in 2006. It was one of the most diverse games on the PSP, and it provided fun and laughter due to its silly atmosphere. It was a great exclusive and was a big pick up and play game. The audio was cheerful, the graphics were crisp, and the game had great replayabilty. Did the sequel live up to the first? In one word, yes.

Having successfully repelled the Moja invasion, the LocoRoco returned to their fun-loving existence. Unfortunately the Moja would not accept defeat so easily. They've returned to fight the LocoRoco causing pain and sorrow among the beings of the LocoRoco's world. The story to the game is definitely not its highest point but it does give you a small motive to go on and defeat the bad guys.

LocoRoco 2 is a platformer with some cool elements. You only use the right and left shoulder buttons and the circle button to control your character. The right and left shoulder buttons move your LocoRoco by tilting the screen in which you are traversing. Pressing both the right and left shoulder buttons at once will make your LocoRoco jump. The circle button will split your LocoRoco in several pieces so it can travel through smaller crevasses. Holding the circle button shall recombine your LocoRoco back to its original size. The goal of the game is to get from one side of the stage to the other while enlarging your LocoRoco. You also can collect other objects to add to your overall completion. Environmental hazards and small amounts of enemies will be the only threats you face. A few mini-games are included on the disc as well. You have whack-a-mole and others like the sound to button mini-game.

The graphics in LocoRoco are nice, colorful, and crisp. The game's art style is very cutesy and fun. Now the game doesn?t have the most detail, mainly because the game is supposed to look like a crisp and clean flash game. Characters in the game have their own charm to them, very original stuff.

Music was very cheerful and it fit well with the graphics. One thing that may turn some people off is the "voice acting". The LocoRoco's sing in a foreign language and other characters just bleep and bloop when talking. I don't have any complaints though as this adds to the overall theme.

There the fun mini-games which you can play using Ad-Hoc, which is cool if you have other friends who like the game too. Collectibles will also keep your coming back. The game is truthfully a pick up and play title. Also since the game is shorter than the first it's easier to complete, meaning you could beat it in much less time over and over again than you could the first game.

I enjoyed the game and I'm still enjoying it. If you want a cheerful and non-stressful platformer with crisp graphics and silly sound or if you liked the first game this is defiantly something you should try out. With a price tag of twenty bucks, I don't see why you would skip the title anyways.
