Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

If you’ve been concerned that the new generation of consoles has had relatively little in the way of new ideas, then LittleBigPlanet should be the game to restore you faith. It’s difficult to describe properly, which is a good thing, because it means it’s very different from the norm.
Peculiar machines like this are the norm in LittleBigPlanet
Although combat is a minor part of the game, there are some huge bosses
Creating your own levels from scratch is as easy as playing them
Objects can be made out of anything from wood to sponge, metal, and felt

Amazing graphics bring the world of the main character, known as Sackboy, and his fabric-coated pals to life with realistic physics and a stunning level of detail. Played with friends it’s a great puzzle adventure, as you co-operate and compete across each level.

The game’s trump card though is its customisation, not just the characters themselves but the whole game. It’s extremely easy to create your own levels, and the best fun is had simply setting up areas for mucking around and then sharing them online with other people.

Key Features
  • Unreal reality: There’s never been a game that looks like this, with ultra cute characters but realistically modelled physics and materials from wood to sponge.
  • Co-op fun: Co-operate with up to three friends, as you run, jump, and swing around each level and overcome the cunning puzzles and dangerous enemies.
  • Everything changes: Every single element of the game is fully customisable from your player character to each of the levels and all of the objects within them.
  • Mad scientist: Create your own unique levels and change the properties of any objects to make Sackboy mincing traps or huge machines that can move whole levels.
  • Eye see you: Use the EyeToy camera to further customise your game with special stickers that allow you to add your own photos to any level.

4.0 out of 5 stars Adorable Fun 23 May 2009
By S. Porter VINE VOICE
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have to confess, even with the sickening, slobbering praise this game was generating before release, I really wasn't too sure what to expect, or if I'd even like it, so I was a little nervous when I first slid the disk into my PS3.

Within moments of the installation, I was captivated by the music, the visuals and Stephen Fry's playful narration. It really was a joy playing through the settings and following the little tutorial segments, and our hero Sackboy was just so adorable and beautifully rendered that it was impossible not to love him.

The gameplay is pretty much what you'd expect from any platform game, but the superbly polished visuals and your ability to interact more with the environment are a magnificent departure from days of yore and I found myself playing with the happy slack-jawed joy of childhood.

The much vaunted facility to design and upload your own levels is something I haven't taken advantage of. If I'm honest, I'm not sure I ever will, but for those with the time, inclination and creative talent, I'm sure it's something that can reap rewards.

Overall, LittleBigPlanet is a fun and refreshing take on what might otherwise be thought of as a rather stale retro-gaming style, and I'd recommend it to anyone who refuses to let go of the child inside.

4.0 out of 5 stars LittleBigPlanet - In a world of it's own 15 April 2009
By Domokun
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As an experienced gamer, I was reluctant to buy a game that has been marketed straight at the kids/casual market. Media Molecule's 'World of Fart' TV adverts painted an immature and childish portrait of the game that alienated me as a 'serious' gamer.

After hearing only good things about the game from various trusted sources, and the wild price drop on the title, I picked it up on a whim, and I'm not regretting it now!

This title is beautiful in its own way, and MM have done themselves proud on the exceptional, if unoriginal level design. The levels are grouped thematically, with a half-baked, and somewhat unnecessary storyline roughly stringing the sections together.

If I had complaints, it would be the reliance on the User generated content, which, whilst hailed as the driving force for the next generation', ends up being disappointing. Wading through many, many levels to find a real gem becomes boring very quickly, and the heaps of 'free stuff!' levels clog the system no end.

Overall, this game is worth the cash, but don't expect anything totally original, or longevity without sections of boredom.

4.0 out of 5 stars A platform game with a difference 8 Nov. 2008
By Bookish
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After all the hype, I wasn't exactly sure what I was getting when this game arrived on my doormat, but I was eager to find out...

Basically, this is a platform game.
The game opened and I started out by being given a Sackboy, which is not made of sack at all but is knitted. I had one or two items to dress him (her, in my case) in, and add hair etc. to personalise her. She looked quite cute when I'd finished, and I was amused to discover that I could use the controller to make her smile, pout, look round (by moving the controller itself round), and move her arms.

Then on to the game. Firstly,Stephen Fry narrated a series of platform tutorials which showed my Sackgirl how to walk, run, jump, pull and push things, and grab hold of things so that she could swing herself to different levels. I didn't want to do these tutorials but I had no choice: can't play the game until they're done! As I completed each one, the next one unlocked and taught me the next set of skills. I realised eventually that I needed these skills to get anywhere with the game...

The platforms were great to look at: very realistically 'constructed' out of wood and material and sponge and cogs and wheels and all kinds of interelated items. It felt a bit like being inside a big toy shop. My Sackgirl had to negotiate her way through all kinds of obstacles, without getting squashed or vapourised in the process. Along the way, my Sackgirl collected items hidden around the platform - items of clothing, hair etc., stickers (which you can actually stick onto surfaces, resizing and re-orientating so that the sticker fits exactly...) Little Sackgirl jumped, ran, pushed, pulled, swung and flew (using an airpack - neat!).

3.0 out of 5 stars Little Big Hit! 30 Jun. 2013
By Amy-Hols TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Everyone else loves this game more than I do.

Don't get me wrong, I do not hate it, but it seems like my partner, his two kids, and a lot of my friends, love this game a lot more than I do.

I never intended to get LittleBigPlanet, from the videos and screen shots I had seen I pretty much dismissed it as a kids game. However a male friend a few years older than me kept pestering me to get it so I could play the levels he had made. Eventually I caved.

I was very impressed with the look of the game, and loved the narration by Stephen Fry. I played my friend's levels and gave the obligatory hearts (they were good levels though!) and we played online together a fair bit in the story mode and in levels people had made. But after the initial fun, I got bored. The story was not exciting enough to keep me interested, it was just a device to move from one level to another, and the level creator did not interest me at all, I'm just not that creative I prefer to be entertained rather than work on providing entertainment. I wish I were more creative, but I'm just not... oh well.

On the other hand, my partner loves this game. He has totally embraced the creative side of the game, and has spent many hours making age and ability appropriate levels for his two children. They are 7 and 8, but have actually been playing LBP since a lot younger due to him making them suitable levels. We also play together sometimes just for a laugh, but I do not play the game for long sessions as it does not really interest me in the same way it does other people.

PROS: If you are a creative sort, the sky is the limit, there is so much you can do with this game, it is amazing.
