"The initial appeal of Puppeteer mimics that of LittleBigPlanet, which, in its own right, is one of the first games since to seemingly attempt a similar style to Media Molecule’s giant franchise. After moving past the main menu, we learn that Puppeteer is almost nowhere near what LBP has done--which is a good thing, in this case. The initial intrigue of something completely different opens up to you once Puppeteer begins its light-hearted quest for entertainment. The stage is set for something greater than itself, and the ever so slight stage fright keeps this ambitious title from receiving a standing ovation."
