Who is picking this bad boy up?  Ign gave it a 9.0 (wow) while Gamespot gave it a . . . 7.6 if I recall?

I looked it up (ow, my clicking finger...what a workout).  Gamespot actually gave it a 7.7.

I was all gungho for this game, but I've read that it is on the shortish side and that the don't do much to make the gameplay interesting across the length of the game.  Basically, what you saw in the demo is all you do all game and while I love the charm of the graphics and such, I am was kind of hoping there was more to it.  I will probably wait to pick it up when it comes down in price.  Before the month started there were more games to buy than I could afford and so when something like this comes out and it isn't as great as I thought it might be, it is nice because it relieves some stress on the pocket.  Next week for DS alone is insane and then you factor in that I want Lego Star Wars 2 on the 360 as well.  That's all in one damn week.  Crazy.

This game is fun for the first two worlds then it just gets overly repetitive.  I agree with the 7.7 far more than the 9.

That song is infectious.  It was woth the 2.7 upgrade just to have that gem on my system.

Throw on some Animal Crossing: Wild World mp3's.  I wish I could have the AC:WW theme play whenever I turned on my PSP.

I would buy the LocoRoco soundtrack but I'm not sure I want to subject myself to the game.  A whole game full of...that?  I don't think I can do it.  Plus I really suck at it.

The "wow" is a reaction due to IGN giving it a 9.0 - it's a bit surprising given their "harder" scoring system and how shallow of a game Loco Roco apparently is.

Damn depward, so you'll go pick up LocoRoco but still wont give Socom a chance! 

For anyone who wants to give it a try, use your PSP web browser and point it to www.locorocodemo.com (it only works with the PSP browser) and you'll be able to download the demo directly to your PSP memory stick. (Only about 8mb in size.)

I tried the demo and it seemed neat.. but it was just too childish for me personally. Seemed like a nintendo game if anything, but hey, I'm all for kids games on the PSP as we need more of them.. as there's no shortage of Teen and Mature games out there already for the PSP.

This game is amazing.

Handheld GOTY, easily.  And I was ALL ABOUT Tekken when it came out...but this game, this game's something special.  I <3 it.
