LittleBigPlanet: The Edge Verdict

LittleBigPlanet is all about changing your perspective. Just weeks after a limited preview release, this game has exploded, surely, beyond both its projections and its initial code. Even, actually, beyond the conventions of the average review. It's a multiplayer riot, a visual landmark, a feat of engineering, and one of the most charming games ever made. But even those accolades are dwarfed by its scope, its potential, and the apparent endlessness of them both.

What's more, it sees the pariah of this generation, Sony, publishing at the height of its powers. Not since the early days of PlayStation has that troubled brand stood for – and fostered – such a daring, transcendent, magnificent piece of work.

Holy bejeesus you can't get much more positive than that!

The praise for this game is so thick you could spread it on toast!

And well-deserved, too! I'd give the game a 9.5 / 10 just on the basis of its single-player story and the customization options for your sackperson. Add on the multiplayer component and I give it a 9.9, add in the level-creator and infinite supply of content that'll be coming down the pipeline and it's worth 10, easy. I'd give the overall package MORE than a 10 out of 10 if it were even possible for such a score to exist. This game makes previous 10 / 10 games look downright weak in comparison. GTA IV? MGS IV? These games don't have nearly the charm, the brilliance of design and execution, or the long-lasting appeal that LittleBIGPlanet has.

I've finished all of the single-player game so far, but haven't gotten the gold "Play" trophy yet. There is only one level that I haven't yet beaten on a single life. I plan on striving to accomplish that tonight when I get home. And then there's the other 15% of extra goodies I need to unlock for a coveted silver trophy, but I am going to need the servers to go up so I can get into a 4-player round in order to get some of those.

Anyway, to everybody who's got the next week or so ahead of them, please... do something constructive with your time. Because once this game is in your hands, you'll find yourself slacking off on everything else in your life.

I agree with your "more than 10/10 if it were possible" comment - but I think that's more of a reflection that the "out of 10" scoring system cannot possibly fairly represent the quality of LBP (or some other games that are totally original, groundbreaking and fun - portal might be another example of this, though not on the scale of LBP).

Why o why3625d ago

well done to sony for taking the chance with MM and their idea and well done to MM for taking that chance and realising their potential. *thumbs up*

robotnik3625d ago

Only for PLAYSTATION 3, PLAY B3YOND.

robotnik3625d ago

This is a must have, even if you are so macho that cant stand cute things running around.

ultimolu3625d ago

I agree. I guarantee even the macho man can get into this.
Sony/Media Molecule did an excellent job with this.

Lol, does this company even look like they're going the way of Sega?

Please!

robotnik3625d ago

No way! Sony owns 50% of the market of gaming. They are gaining ground day after day.

I havent yet been able to spend much time playing it yet, and when I have i keep doing the same levels over to collect all the items, but im digging it so far. Very simple, yet enjoyable, platformer. I havent yet touched the level creation though.

qqjohn3625d ago

I have just completed the History and it´s well worth the high ratings. It´s short but if you are gonna get 100% on each level, it takes time. Looking forward to go online.

jctoyou3625d ago

how can it be short when u can download all the levels u will ever need!!!!

qqjohn3625d ago

I was talking about the History! I know the user built levels will make this game playable forever, but only a few will match the quality of the history made levels.
