"Awesome, unique game!"
LittleBigPlanet is among the most unique video games I have ever played. It has fun, simplistic gameplay, a unique visual style, awesome soundtrack, and tons of re-playability. LittleBigPlanet is among the best exclusives on the PS3, and it has a sequel coming later in 2010 that many are excited for.
Gameplay - 10/10
The big part of every game. LittleBigPlanet delivers in this category. It consists of a pretty simple side scrolling platformer - you can jump, run, and grab on to things as you progress through levels. The physics engine in this game feels crisp and smooth, and highly realistic. It is a very easy game to pick up and play, as I actually got my parents to play with me and they actually understood what they were doing quite well.
Graphics - 9/10
The icing on the cake. The graphics in LittleBigPlanet are quite interesting! A lot of the stickers you obtain throughout the game are "cartoony", but many of the elements, including the water from one of the DLC packs is quite realistic and nice looking.
Sound and Soundtrack - 10/10
The soundtrack is quite excellent. Lots of unique tracks that fit the levels they are on, and they are also quite catchy. The sound effects in the game range from many different noises including silly things such as farts or odd animal noises.
Online and Level Creation - 10/10
The best part of this game. In LittleBigPlanet, the main thing is the idea of creating your own level out of stickers, objects, and other materials you obtain throughout your single player experience. There are many hundreds of stickers to obtain from the 29 single player levels, and they can all be used and morphed in various ways to create amazing levels. As of right now, there are about 2.5 million levels in the online feature - all of which you can play and enjoy. This is definitely the selling point of this title, as you can play for hours and hours and still not even scrape the surface of the amount of levels in the online feature.
Overall - 10/10
One of the best exclusives on that the Playstation 3 has to offer, LittleBigPlanet can now be picked up for a little more than $20. With a deal like this, there is definitely no reason not to pick this game up - it's phenomenal - and a MUST own for PS3.
