NowGamer - LittleBigPlanet Karting Preview

It seems that this game is shaping up to be everything I'd hoped from it. The excellent United Front kart racing game experience with the LBP influence, charm and creativity that will (or at least should) propel it to be as successful as it deserves to be. However, the quote below from the article sums it up well. It's still gonna receive the ignorant "Mario Kart clone" judgement, even though United Front are doing what Nintendo EAD haven't done in years.

"We don’t know, however, if the seeming apathy of the gaming audience at large can be overcome by LBP Karting, though. Does anybody care if it doesn’t have Mario in it? And does that matter if you can just make your own Mario in the game? Time will tell."

I love, love, love Mario Kart, but this might just be my new favourite karting game of all time due to the sheer endless creativity on offer.
