Is LittleBigPlanet fun?

1 min read

LBP has been getting rave reviews ever since it was first shown publicly and anow that we are in the final run up to it’s release the hype is building even more.

However there has always been that undercurrent of whether or not the game is actually any good or just groundbreaking…

While the ability to create stages and share them is hugely groundbreaking (for consoles at least) there are people who keep mentioning that it is purely a side scrolling platformer and really isn’t a whole lot of fun.

Personally I think it is high time the platform scroller returned and I am really looking forward to it, I don’t think we need more than that to be honest and I expect months of fun from this game.

But could you imagine if the game actually sucks… then your stuck with a development tool that can only do one thing…

I can be as suspicious as I like about this game but as soon as I click play on a LBP video I smile. It just feels like a great game.

    I love platform games like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro but it seems that nobody makes any good platformers anymore. I hope that they bring a decent one to the Xbox.

    Well, Ratchet and Clank was fun 😀

    A lot depends on how flexible the tools are, I think. If they are powerful, the community will create some great levels even if the ones that ship with the game are so-so.

    For me, the game I’m looking forward to the most this year, even above Gears 2 or Resistance 2. The art-style alone makes it a winner in my eyes.
