"After spending the last couple of weeks playing the wonderfully unique, hilarious and hugely ambitious plaything that is LittleBigPlanet, I am prepared to declare that it's going to be very difficult for anything else to dislodge it from the lofty position of "my favourite game of 2008".
The charming LittleBigPlanet might not help shift as many PS3 consoles as Sony hopes, but it is the "killer app" the PS3 so desperately needs. Players of all ages will be entranced and thoroughly entertained.
With up to three friends alongside you joining in the fun, there are over 20 incredibly clever and imaginative platform-leaping obstacle courses to explore, plus dozens of bonus challenges.
The "hand-made" levels are filled with collectibles, puzzles, vehicles, mechanical foes, traps, rollercoaster rides, bosses and hazards like fire and electricity. Each is set in lush areas like colourful gardens, temples, jungles and canyons, with stunning Japanese, Indian and South American-inspired stages the highlight.
Controlling your adorable Sackboy character is simple, with only three moves to learn - run, jump and grab.
Many players will enjoy puppeteering with their Sackboy and dressing them up in various outfits, or the simple pleasure of seeing them bounding around on seesaws or swinging on ropes."
