LittleBigPlanet is the latest customisable platform game to gain some attention. It is designed especially for Sony’s Play Station 3 and is their great hope for helping to sell the box. With the immense popularity of the Wii and many others making BluRay capable players, Sony needs this to be a success. So far, the reviews are pretty good.
In summary, LittleBigPlanet is a “novel, imaginative, and highly customisable platform game” in which everything from your character to the environment is geared towards user creation and adaptation. Each level of the story mode is an unforgettable trip through the wild imagination of the designers. It has cute characters that are not based on blood, guts, bullets & fear. Hence, more ages can play so the customer base is larger. This should help Sony.
In summary, the titular Little Big Planet is the place where all human imagination collects, you know –the planet above the cosmos where our untapped creativity escapes when we’re asleep or daydreaming. There are eight themed worlds in total. They vary in style from places such as the Mexican desert to a ninja-obsessed Japan and the African savannah. Each world has either three or four individual levels, most of which can be completed in less than 10 minutes, and each level also has a bonus challenge or race if you can find the key hidden within. These bonus levels offer some of the most fun and imaginative experiences in the game.
Actually, I haven’t played it yet, but it’s been a while since I am happily looking forward to a new game. The reviews are good, let’s just hope it lives up to the hype (both for me and all Sony stockholders!).
