LittleBigPlanet Review

When it comes to the platform games Super Mario Bros has invented the platform game genre as we know it, but times have changed and so did the platform games. Sure, Super Mario is still the best platform game on the market but we’re seeing some new interesting games that are trying to change the platform genre as we know it. There’s one game that stands above all other games and that’s LittleBigPlanet.

LittleBigPlanet is a platform puzzle game that has been released exclusively for the PlayStation 3, but after the PS3 release time has come for the PSP version. As you know, LittleBigPlanet is game that allows you to create and share your own creations with other players all over the world, similar to the ModNation Racers. If you’ve played LittleBigPlanet on the PS3 you’ll notice that PSP version is a lot more than a plain port. Game has been changed and you won’t be running through the same levels like in the PS3 version, instead you have a whole new 30 levels to explore. Main menu consists out of three planets, one is the Earth that represents the 30 levels that developers have made, other one is the Moon where you can create your own levels and the third one is the community planet where you can share your own levels and download other players’ levels. This is a great solution since LittleBigPlanet has no multiplayer option but that’s not a big problem since you can download hundreds of maps to play and only limit is your storage space.

You begin the game by creating your own character also known as Sackboy and customizing it the way you like. After creating your character you’re ready to hit the levels. The key of this game is to collect objects and to create your own levels so while you’re playing with your own Sackboy you’ll collect objects that you will place in your own levels and stickers that you’ll put anywhere you like. Gameplay is slightly changed comparing to the PS3 version and controls are bit weird and hard to master but just like in any other platform game it takes a lot of time and practice to master it. There will be a lot of running, jumping and floating in this game so if you want to master it you’ll have to practice, a lot. Game isn’t that hard like the PS3 version because it has a lot of checkpoints, and you can continue after you die from the last checkpoint unlimited times, unlike in the PS3 version. You’ll simply lose a bit of your points but it doesn’t matter, even if you lose all your points you are still going to be able to continue from the last checkpoint.

Besides playing the levels you can also create your own levels with the editor. Creating of levels is simple but if you want to make a really good level you’ll have to invest some more time and effort. It takes a lot of time to master it but luckily there are hundreds of levels available online so you can use them if you don’t have the time to make your own levels. It takes some time for you to adjust to the level editor but after some time you’ll be able to create anything that you want. Editor works great and you have unlimited possibilities with it, you can create anything that you want, and all that you need in order to do that are the objects that you collect through the levels and some free time. Best of all, you can easily share your levels with other players and play levels that other players have made.

So what can I say about LittleBigPlanet? Everything about that game is simply amazing: the graphics the sound, the gameplay. Everything looks so cute, cardboard graphics fits perfectly and it looks amazing on a handheld console such as PSP. Only flaw of the game are the controls but you’ll be able to master them after some time. Same thing goes for the stage editor, the more you practice the better you’ll get. Since there are many levels available on the internet LittleBigPlanet has almost unlimited replay value and you won’t be bored with this game for a long time. LittleBigPlanet is simply amazing and it’s one of the best games on PSP that you must try.
