As you can see, I had a ton to say in this review, but that's because there's a ton to this game. LittleBigPlanet is a massive game, one that is essentially two parts intertwined so well that they're practically inseparable. Media Molecule has created a brilliant platformer, and then given you the tools to recreate the whole thing over again, or better yet, to create your own ideas from scratch. It's not perfect - - the controls could be tighter, automatically shifting between planes can be problematic, the editor isn't quite as robust as you might hope -- but what's there is nothing short of astounding. If you own a PlayStation 3, you cannot miss this. If you don't have a PS3 yet, this is the reason to get one.
The way that everything is intertwined and flows and works together is perfect. The tagging system needs to be fixed, but that's it.
Pixar would be proud. The visuals are cute, clean, stylistic and simply beautiful, while the art direction is absolutely top-notch.
The soundtrack is as perfect as it gets. On the editor side, there could be more specific samples, but you won't be counting while playing the Story mode.
The controls could be a tad tighter and the plane-shifting stuff needs work, but the overall package design is simply phenominal. The editor is amazing given that it's on a console.
9.5 Lasting Appeal
There's a ton to keep you coming back to the Story levels, but the user-created content will give LBP life for a long, long, long time.
OVERALL= 9.5. PS3 FTW ! Detailed review awaits at http://ps3.ign.com/articles/919/919111p1.html
