5.0 out of 5 stars Great family game. 12 Nov. 2012
By Teggfd
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a faithful entry in the LittleBigPlanet (lbp) series. Its more multi player focused compared to the previous LBP games simply because platforming is more single player friendly. Yet the single player mode is lots of fun given that its a kart racer. There is also a variety of story mode game types alongside karting to keep you interested. RC races (think micro machines) to battle modes and F1 pit stop style races are included. The focus is playing with others and the game has a feature to keep your party connected and flowing through a vote system when you finish a race. This does the job well and the host can always manually change tracks if necessary. Voice chat works great and text messaging is also possible in the traditional lbp pop up way.

Lots of options and a very powerful create mode that is fully 3D from the ground up. It is possible to create certain game types not possible in LBP 2. A good example being you can make a natural starfox 64 style game in 3D or a Jungle Strike with 2d view. There are water/boat racing tracks made by the community. Tower defense and other game types can be made. Weapons can be customised and creators can share weapons through levels. There is a mario kart weapon packs making the rounds. The shells are larger and the question mark power ups are not transparent but its surprisingly close.

Karts are fully customisable. You can change suspension to a floating/flying kart to a tank kart. The game shines here. Costumes are the same as previous LBP games. You will be able to use the same costumes unlocked in the other games soon after a patch.

The karting is closest to Mario Kart and comparisons were already inevitable. The power ups are very similar(and customisable) as are the kart handling aspects unlike Modnation Racers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Potential But Falls Short 19 Dec. 2012
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, I'm a big fan of LittleBigPlanet. This game does justice to LittleBigPlanet fully. It is extremely customizable, very good content creation tools and highly polished artwork and animation. Almost anything the original developers did in this game, you can potentially do as well. The tools are included.

Where it falls short is the actual racing. The game physics is bizarre, if you get knocked from behind you just come to an abrupt stop. The AI will always screw you over with multiple hits and always finds you when you don't have an item to defend yourself. So instead of a party karting game where you want to knock about and race freely, the odd physics and poorly balanced weapons and items makes this one of the worst karting experiences on the PS3. Even when you win, you do not feel you won because you raced well. You feel you won because you were lucky.... And this is my biggest problem with this game in that it's just no fun (especially against AI).

The multiplayer can tend to be better when there are other humans playing and without any bots. Even then there are issues with weapon balances.

It is sad, I really tried to love this game but the actual karting is a huge let down. Absolutely no complaints on any other part of this game, but I think they went too much for customization and trying to sell the game on the name of LittleBigPlanet than make the actual karting fun.

If you are looking for a fun game with countless hours of replay value and customizations, creating levels and the whole LBP experience get it by all means.

If you are looking for a solid karting game with fast racing, fun drifting and proper kart physics... skip this by all means.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for the price 5 Aug. 2013
By Mr. Martyn Poole VINE VOICE
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I love the LittleBigPlant games and a karting game is welcome edition along with the talented voice of Stephen Fry who I now can't see a sack person without his narration. It also gives Playstation owners a karting game that's as close to Mario Kart for those who don't own a Nintendo console.

Problem with games like this is you have to have a lot of luck which causes frustration in my opinion. Mario Kart, Wipeout etc all weapon based shooters you can be stitched up on however I have to say you need more luck with this than any other weapon based shooter. It's one of those cases where you can race the perfect race and stay in first the whole race but then hit with 5 items on the last corner going from 1st to 8th, it's not a great feeling and half the time it isn't avoidable. The game does let you protect yourself with some items but this doesn't always seem to work and even when it does you normally get hit by someone else straight after.
Some other item issues I have had come from my own items that are meant to be a help become a hindrance instead. One instance of this was when I got the boxing glove, which turns your kart into a massive boxing glove that smash karts out the way and speeds up your journey however mine decided to veer into a corner of the track while everyone else passed me. Another problem was a fast forward item, which speeds your position forwards in an instant, mine did just that yet when I was back in control I was at the edge of the track so I drove right off it rendering my fast forward useless. This is just a couple of issues I had while playing to give you some example of some of the games flaws.
