MasonicGamer.com: LittleBigPlanet Karting sees Sackboy move away from his 2d’ish side scrolling platformer and move into the 3D world of Kart Racing. Gone is Media Molecule and in are United Front Games who you may remember from Sleeping Dogs. Can the studio responsible for a GTA clone set in the gangster underworld of Hong Kong, handle Sony’s mascot and launch him in a whole new direction? In a word, yes. Before they ruled the streets of Hong Kong, United Front Games released, ModNation Racers, and aims to put it to good use in what could possibly be the new generation of Kart Racers.
So what is Little Big Planet Karting and is it just another Mario Kart clone? Sort of, but this is not a bad thing. Mario Kart was and still is one of the most fun multiplayer racing games of all time. Even though LittleBigPlanet Karting lends from Mario Kart with the use of over the top weapons it is not a direct clone. The story based missions separate this game from those before.
