Alright so I got the Munchables,i've been hooked on it sense I started playing it,the controls fell very nice and for the first time in a long time I actually prefer The WiiMote&Nunchuck controls over the Gamecube controls.This game has tons of humor,I could'nt stop laughing when I saw the dancing Cucumber riding on the Magic Carpet,so basically the gameplay is it's platformer mixed with some Katamari elements it's very addictive & I would highly recommend this to any Katamari fan out there.IT'S AWESOMESAUCE

I think munchables are overpriced and over-rated. However, they are obviously marketed at young children who will make their parents buy them to be cool. (Whooosh! The joke just went over the heads of every Non-Australian here, and probably some Aussies too. Those are the jokes I like to tell.)

VGP: you compared it to Katamari...is there a similar mechanic in this game? From the little I've read I can't really get a sense of how this game is supposed to play. Oddly enough, I can find loads of information on the plot (which, something tells me, isn't meant to be taken seriously), but almost nothing on how the game actually feels to play.
What's it like? Level-based? In place of rolling up more items to increase the scale of your playing area, what does this game do?

@Chicken Brutus:Yes the game Is level based.When I say it's similar it's like in Katamari you go near an object and roll it up & in here you go near the vegetables and eat them.In Katamari if your to small you can't pick up certain objectsin the Munchables also if your to small you won't be able to eat certain vegetables yet.when you eat enemy's you grow bigger,but what seperate's it from Katamari is that above the enemy's heads shows it is at a certain level you have to ether reach that level to eat it or you can attack it ram into it and break the vegetables into smaller pieces and then eat it,will eating also increase the scale of the playing area? yes it will.theres also power ups in the game.
& yes sadly it is a little to short,same like klonoa Wii

I find it kind of sad that it is so much like Katamari and made by the same company! I still want this, but I would have much prefered Katamari Wii (and Nobby Nobby boy, that game is perfect for the Wii!).

Than you VGP for shedding some light on this game. It was on my radar and I am waiting for reviews and more opinions before making a purchase. From my understanding it seems like Namco-bandai has plenty of under-the-radar hits (like We Ski) that can easily be dismissed as 'casual' or 'kiddy' shovelware. But I know better and always try to keep an eye on their products. Again, thanks for the heads up.
Abandon hope all ye who enter here.

Excellent, need to put this on "the list."
19 June is the UK release date according to Amazon.co.uk and they're offering the budget price of £17.99! Hopefully that price holds because I'm getting the Conduit this month...

Another thing you can do in the Munchables is you go through the level looking for these Shiney Acorns and you'll get gifts with accessories inside of them to put on your characters,and every level you beat you'll receive that song from that level onto the menu to listen to.Each world is very different,like you'll go to a world in the sky that'll be almost just complete platforming,then you'll go to a world that is completely underwater.
