Little Big Planet review

29 Oct

So I ran out and got Little Big Planet, a game I have been so excited about. Here is the gameplay trailer to give you an idea of what the game looks and feels like.

I only played for a few hours, but greatly enjoyed it. I usually skip tutorials but it was so fun and so integrated into the feel of the game I just had to sit through it. Even the opening credits are interactive and fun. The sack people are SO cute and I love how different you can make yourself look with costumes and stickers and accessories. My sackboy ended up being a pirate bunny complete with cute fluffy bunny tail and hook hand and eye patch.

Sadly, the online servers were down but thats ok because the single player game is a blast. The challenge will definitely be in finding 100% of the items in every map. The harder levels are quite hard too, but still have such a nice sense of fun. I was very impressed by everything, it has a flawless user interface, so intuitive and fun to use. The music is fantastic, the physics impressive. This is a game-changer, this game sets a new precedent for what an innovative game is. The ability to create any map you want is amazing and although I am sure some inappropriate levels will be made, overall there will some fantastic stuff. I haven’t tried the map creation part of the game yet, but plan on toying with it soon. Just look at some of the maps made during the beta phase:

Some Cool User Created Maps

Here is one 9/11 Little Big Planet map, and another.

Also here is a pac-man map, a working calculator that is composed of 610 magnetic switches, 500 Wires, 430 pistons and 70 emitters and god knows what else, and of course a super mario map.

Penny Arcade Little Big Planet

Overall I give the game a 11/10 and it’s the only reason you’ll ever need to own a PS3.

    HEY! I pre-ordered it and so I got the God of War costumes and stuff…right now I’m Medusa! It’s HYSTERICAL!
    I can’t tell you when I EVER laughed playing a video game before this.
    The servers are still a little hinky but I was able to get on over the last two evenings.
    I agree 100% with your accessment.
    (And if you have any hints for getting past the part in the wedding reception where you bounce on the hanging platforms and then down onto the pop-up skulls surrounded by electricity, PLEASE fill me in! I’m stuck there for the time being.)
    And add me as a friend! I have the same handle there as here. Just identify your bad self so I recognize ya.
