LittleBigPlanet Karting Review | Destructoid

Jim Sterling writes, "I felt sorry for ModNation Racers when LBP Karting was released, but now I just kind of feel bad for both of them." (Little Big Planet Karting, PS Vita) 6.5/10

Ok, so I'm not interested in the score here but what I'd like to point out is something that I've seen mentioned in a few reviews now, including IGNs:

They tell you that there is less cart modding. That couldn't be further from the truth. This game offers far more modding than in MNR. You can take the parts available and mix and match them, or you can take anything you make with material and make that into a cart, or you can make ANY object into a cart. You can also change everything about the way that cart handles. AI can also be tweaked.

What this boils down to is the fact that the tools are so deep and complex that it will take weeks or even months to come to grips with. Because it's in 3D, it becomes quite a challenge to get your head around -- I know I couldn't in the beta (and I complained about it over at the official beta forums). But, once I'd seen what the community had created with this game, I had to concede that it was my inabilities that made me draw the wrong conclusion.

I think there are a few dummies being spat in these reviews.

IGN and Destructoid says it all. Trolls and trolls. The only way to kill a troll is with flame >:D

I just don't care about reviews anymore. If there is a game I am interested in and there is a good review of it, I will read it, because then they will be honest about the flaws. Granted Skyrim received reviews based on early gameplay.

Reviewers are the worst though, their collective work amounts to nothing but a giant pile of dung. No one builds statues to critics. These lame "journalists" can't even create a crappy game in a lifetime, yet they self appoint themselves to title of "critic." What a joke!

I agree, game journalism has long ago forgotten what makes a game fun.

All they care about is their next paycheck.

like dude said in comments of ign review for this game.If its not brining up glitches and technical issues dont worry about it , treat it as another comment on n4g

I have played the beta but I dont have the game so I cant judge. But I never really looked at reeviews until Gt5 released so I dont know if reviews have always been as subjective as they are now.But I have read and watched music and movie reviews and they always review as the consumer and throw hype completely out the window. What I mean by as the consumer I mean they dont share personal opinion if its not their cup of tea ( or dont let their personal opinion effect the score), they instead put they self in the consumers shoes.
Its pretty much the opposite with game reviews.
Some of thse so called journalist might think they enjoy all genres but its pretty obvious they dont and much prefer shooters and rpgs more.

And to continue what Gribble was saying, That just shows they spend a limited amount of time actually playing the game.Same happened with gt5 when a review said you get more damage when you reach a certain level.Haha I bet kaz and pd where like Wth if they read those revies

There are already things I prefer about this game over MNR.

1. It actually has a theme.
2. Shorter Load Times
3. Event Variety (Races, Death Match, and Egg Capture)
4. Options to vote on multiple maps online

I have lost all faith in many reviewers these days. This is a solid game that is better than the 5 given by IGN.

The weird moment when people call Greg Miller a fanboy for Uncharted 3... and then call him a troll for LBP Karting
GribbleGrunger  +   1193d ago
Well some people just can't help but make their attacks personal I'm afraid, but I don't think the IGN situation is about Greg Miller, it's about IGN since they're App deal with MS. Greg Miller needs employment at the moment.

"Ok, so I'm not interested in the score here " that why you've only written this in the reviews where it scored lower than 7?

Reviewers? No such thing s reviewers anymore. Just gamers who play games earlier than we do, and get paid for it. Sounds like heaven until they have 6 games on thier desk to review ASAP, so they be the first to have it on their site. Then it becomes a race to beat six games (or not) instead of analyzing it correctly.they start comparing games to other games they previously played. Then they post what they can see like frame rate, graphics, or controls. U know,the stuff anyone can see after 30 minutes with any game. Instead of actually enjoying the game ( or trying to enjoy) they race to beat some and concentrate one the ones they like. I'd say they're too busy with halo or AC to actually properly review the others like lbpr or rag odd. Sadness really gaming has gone Hollywood ... Smh
