In all honesty, the online creative aspect of LBP Karting carries this game. This is where the real fun takes place. Designing your own courses and test-driving other user’s circuits from across the world knock the story mode out of the park. In fact, other than its way of unlocking collectibles for your creative juices to run riot, story mode needn’t be there.
Iron out the actual driving should LBP Karting 2 come along, and the boys and girls in Mushroom Kingdom will be in real trouble.
