Mod Nation Racers: The lovechild of Mario Kart and Little Big Planet
8 August 2010
Excerpt: Mod Nation is the second game?in the new genre Sony seem to have?invented with the ?Play, Create & Share? games. Little Big Planet was a huge success last year, when for the first time it introduced the user to character and level building in a blend of developer and user, meaning an endless supply of user generated levels involving cute characters could be created. Mod Nation Racers could be quickly described as Little Big Planet in Go karts. That's?
Excerpt: I heard a lot about LittleBigPlanet on the Playstation 3. So when the opportunity came up to play the Playstation Portable (PSP) version I was all over it. Customization is one of the major draws of this franchise. Players get to take on the role of Sackboy in LittleBigPlanet. Players get to collect clothing, stickers and more. The background can be manipulated in levels as well as Sackboy. If that were not enough players can build their own levels.
Excerpt: Could Sackboy make the transition to Sony’s compact and bijou PSP after playing about on the PS3 a year past? Will the game still be as playable and loveable as before? Yes! So that’s this review over but just in case you’re not sure of the phenomena… LittleBigPlanet PSP is a platform game. In both the original and this instalment you manoeuvre your virtual knitted companion, Sackboy, around environments and negotiating increasingly trickier puzzles.
Conclusion: Techniquement parlant, LittleBigPlanet PSP s'en tire vraiment bien. La modélisation s'avère de bonne facture, offrant des environnements hauts en couleurs. Qui plus est, l'ensemble se veut très fluide et fortement agréable à parcourir. Néanmoins, quelques petits bémols viennent entacher la plaisir des yeux. En premier lieu, la taille de l'écran de la PSP ne permet plus de bien discerner les éléments de customisation appliqués sur le sackboy.
Pros: Techniquement réussi, Des niveaux initiaux d'une grande richesse et fun, Bande sonore immersive, L'éditeur de niveaux accessible, Un effort effectué sur la prise en main...
Cons: ... mais cela manque encore de précision, Absence de mode multijoueur coopératif, Temps de chargement intrusifs dans l'éditeur
Imaginative PSP platformer is fun and lets you be creative.

Summary: Parents need to know that LittleBigPlanet for the PSP is very similar to its like-named sibling released last year for the PlayStation 3. Its side-scrolling action involves only a modicum of violence: your sack boy avatars can be singed by lava or electrocuted, and you can jump on enemies to boot them off screen or make them disappear. Should players choose to use the level editor it can become a very creative -- perhaps even educational -- experience.
Excerpt: Rumours about LittleBigPlanet for the PSP emerged before the PS3 game even hit stores, so excited was the PlayStation fanbase about the upcoming physics-based 2D platformer. It made perfect sense. Sony was looking to improve the flagging handheld's software line-up and the Media Molecule developed title has few peers when it comes to hardcore appeal.
