LittleBigPlanet Karting Review | D+PAD Magazine

D+PAD writes:

Between its fully expressive material planes and the twisted forms its players are encouraged to put forward to one another, there’s no denying that the LittleBigPlanet games carry a pretty distinct sense of character. The series’ fabricated hero Sackboy has always been a good representative for his product’s motif: he’s cute, creative and sort of endlessly customisable. It’s never quite mattered that the main series games have lacked any real platforming bite; especially since you could spend hours doing anything but platforming thanks to the wacky ingenuity of the creation tools’ brightest designers. Similarly, aptly-named spin-off LittleBigPlanet Karting dutifully plays second fiddle to its predecessors by prioritising a sense of style and creation against the backdrop of a merely competent game – or in this case, a merely competent kart racer. (Little Big Planet Karting, PS3) 3/5
