(7.3) Review - Littlebigplanet - Lots of good lots and bad.
on June 11, 2010
Littlebigplanet can be as bad as it is good.
Some of the levels are so much fun to play, interesting game mechanics and physics, great music and some interesting level design modes if you have and extra 40 or 50 hours to make one.
Some issues with the game are its to hard for kids. You die from poor jumping mechanics all the time there are no infinite portals so it makes you restart the whole level over and over and over...blah
The campaign is only 2 hours long for $59.99??
level building is a real time consuming pain and unless you have tons of time and patients they wont be fun or work right.
The community offers some fun levels but for every good one there about about 10,000 bad ones and they is no way to mark the ones you don't like so you will often reload those poor levels people make and the loads times are killer. In one hour you may be lucky to find one good level and will spend the rest loading and frustrated being stuck on some poor design level.
Playing together also doesn't work well , if one of your friends goes off screen its over they auto death and that's it... Nice
camera angle problems.
Had they offered some infinite spawning portals for kids ages it would have been much better. My kids have beat Dragons Age, Metal gear but they cant come close to playing this game and just don't have the patients to spend 90% of the time reloading.
In the next version (LBP2) they promised to address some of theses issues. In the mean time pick it up for 10$ or rent it.
Recommended for rental first.
This game can still be a lot of fun to play muti-player, when it works well it is fantastic!
