United Front may not have created a game that visually matches those of Media Molecule's, but the Little Big Planet characteristics are all present and accounted for. Little Big Planet Karting is childish in a good way, with everything made out of paper, cloth, foam and the like. Mostly everything is made out of every day materials, and naturally you can decorate Sackboys and courses as you wish.
The game borrows a lot from the Mario Kart series. Various weapons are spread out over the tracks, and several are very similar to those in Mario Kart. One example is the rocket that flies to the front of the pack and hits whoever holds first position, much like the blue shell in Mario Kart. Another example of this is the item that transforms your kart into a boxing glove on auto-pilot. Sounds an awful lot like Bullet Bill in Mario Kart, doesn't it? But it's still not a case of a carbon copy of Nintendo's iconic franchise." 8/10
