Tasty yet disturbing
It seems that lately, no matter what I'm doing, I'd rather be playing Katamari Damacy. It's the most bizarre, original, addictive video game I've played all year. Basically, you roll things up into a big ball. But when I say "things," I mean everything. You start with stuff like thumbtacks and lego blocks, but as your ball grows, you move on to large fruit and small animals, then furniture and vehicles, houses and airplanes, and eventually, entire cities.
It's exactly as much fun as it sounds. Even as I am sitting here at my computer, I am glancing around my room, sizing up objects for their rolling potential. Plus, the game has a slick visual style and a great soundtrack. If you have a PS2, you need to get this game. And if you don't, you need to do what I did: borrow someone elses PS2 and get this game. It's so good, I was actually willing to write this rant twice.
