LittleBigPlanet Karting Review: Why? | TheHDRoom

TheHDRoom: "I'm a huge fan of LittleBigPlanet. I've had the pleasure, and the honor, to play each game and to review LittleBigPlanet 2 and LittleBigPlanet Vita, and I am unapologetic in my love for the series. The art direction, the charm, the simplicity, I enjoy it on many deep levels, and can even overlook some of the more wonky control flubs that have occurred while playing. I think the Sack Boy (or Girl) character is ripe for exploitation by Sony and could very well be the equivalent of the mustachioed plumber from that other company.

So, why am I chagrined at the blatant execution of stripping developer United Front's budding ModNation Racers kart racing franchise of all that it was trying to do with the creator-racer genre and then slapping on the LittleBigPlanet art direction and creation tools, (and of course Sack Boy (or Girl) ) to create a "new franchise" with LittleBigPlanet Karting using an established property?" (Little Big Planet Karting, PS3) 5.8/10

Update Score changed to 6.8.

Another reviewer that follows the trend of taking points off a game because they just don't like it when the game works and plays as advertised. This isn't ModNation Racers, the drift is completed different, and so are the share mechanics. Anything below a 7 should be broken and buggy games.

YouThinklTroll you need to use the whole scale, not just 7 to 10
