Excerpt: LittleBIGPlanet on the Playstation 3 is a game I purchased many months ago. I have finally gotten around to playing, and reviewing it. I can see why the majority of the industry has embraced this game. The level of creativity and interactivity is extremely high in LittleBIGPlanet. This goes from changing your character to the gaming environment. Unfortunately I did run across an issue or two with this PS3 game.
Summary: This compelling, imaginative adventure is the best LittleBigPlanet yet and breaks new ground in a hybrid space of touch-and-button-based gaming that is only possible on PlayStation Vita.
Pros: Exceptional platforming and level design, augmented by clever new mechanics, An empowering suite of creation tools that take full advantage of PS Vita's unique features, Bridges the gap between console-quality gaming and mobile accessibility
Cons: The rare inconsistency with touch response, No support for user-made levels from previous installments
Excerpt: Product Description PlayStation Move redefines motion gaming with the world’s most immersive and realistic motion gaming experience only possible on the PlayStation 3 system. Now, the LittleBigPlanet2: Special Edition Move Bundle lets you play, create and share like never before. Get started today for just $129.99MSRP.
Excerpt: 2D Platformers have all but been discarded in favour of much more open and less restrictive 3D platformers, but once beloved franchises like Sonic have often been frowned upon after finding that extra dimension, in LittleBigPlanet however, 2D Platforming at its purest and most fiendish, is alive and well. But that’s only one half of the games wonderful whole, as LittleBigPlanet also allows us gamers to get in on the whole creation process too.
Conclusion: This game belongs in every single PS3 owner's collection. It's that good. It's also, again, worth buying a PS3 for, but the bottom line is few games will ever be this creative, charming and flat-out wonderful. Yes, ever.
