Namco's surreal ball-rolling, junk-collecting series tumbles its way onto Xbox 360 with Beautiful Katamari. For its next-gen debut, Beautiful Katamari offers new levels and objectives to compete, a remixed soundtrack from classic J-Pop artists, and online support for up to four players. Once again the T-shaped character known as the Prince must roll objects into a sticky ball called a "katamari." The Prince will scoop up things great and small, from matchsticks to skyscrapers, while trying to complete such time-sensitive objectives as collecting specific item types or having the katamari reach a certain size. Multiplayer games include both cooperative and versus options, with the latter a race to see who can collect the most objects in the quickest time. The co-op mode involves working together to control the same katamari throughout 19 levels. Located within each vibrant stage are hidden presents to customize the princely protagonist, including the ability to unlock more than 50 of his kooky cousins. Xbox Live subscribers can not only compete against one another, but also view multiple leaderboards, track personal stats, and download additional Katamari content. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
