Promising some solid platform gameplay, along with some very impressive creation tools, all entwined in a rather remarkable community aspect, LBP really does sound like one hell of a game. Well, it's time to find out whether this is a planet worth exploring.
For those of you who haven't seen or heard anything about LBP (shame on you!), the core gameplay revolves around a sort of 2D platformer. I say 'sort of', because whilst it is 2D, there are 3 different planes of movement; foreground, middle ground and background. You can switch between these planes by simply moving up or down, a simplistic idea that really does enhance the gameplay, with hidden items and routes that can only be accessed by switching the different planes at the right time. Aside from the different planes, the game is rather simple. You can move, jump, and grab onto objects, collect items, and that is just about your lot. Occasionally you can fly about on jetpacks and ride on vehicles, but the game really is all about standard platforming, which is a good thing, because the platforming is done well..."
