Review by Ben Fritz:
"Most videogames use technology and artistry to suck players into an ever-more-immersive experience. "LittleBigPlanet" in an exercise is anti-immersion, attracting even the most casual player to its irresistibly adorable cartoon world, then slowly pulling back the facade until they're left with a blank canvas and the tools to create levels on their own. Coupled with a robust sharing system that borrows the best elements of YouTube, "LittleBigPlanet" is less a game than a platform for making and downloading videogame levels. Ultimate success beyond a niche of wanna-be game developers will depend on an extraordinarily active community that gives everyone else a reliable dose of new creations."
