Will LittleBigPlanet Karting Fulfill Our Mario Kart Wish List?

1UP- "United Front Games' upcoming LittleBigPlanet Karting doesn't divorce itself entirely from Mario Karting; the game still features drifting, boosting, and a collection of weapons remarkably similar to those wielded by members of The Mushroom Kingdom.

But in applying the crowdsourced creativity of LittleBigPlanet to the karting genre, United Front Games might be able to defy expectations with a racer that promises to surprise, despite its very familiar trappings. Though Sony didn't show enough of the game for me to for a definitive opinion, I can at least reach back five months into the past to determine if LBP: Karting will fulfill our karting-based desires."

The story is too old to be commented.

Mod Nation Racers already did that. The only problem the game had were load times. :/

... I rather would have seen a Modnation Racers 2, with more content, and less load times and less DLC-milking. They really should have fixed those issues and release a GOTY or something.

I like LittleBigPlanet as much as the next guy (unless the next guy hates LBP), but I much prefer the 'style' of Modnation Racers over LBP when it comes to kart-racing.

The LBP-kart trailer did nothing for me.

It's not MNR.That was different game.

I expect quite a bit of customization, creation and community stuff.
I can't think of any other game like it.

Also, I wish people would stop comparing with other games all the time.
They're different.

It's not Mario Kart. It's LittleBigPlanet Karting.

I freaking hate people who say "it's a ripoff." WHO CARES! Just stick to playing with your Wii and stop being idiotic fanboys. Thank you. (:

Separate types of games from what I can see. I think Mod Nation was fun, but lacked a true mascot, which is probably why its getting Sackboy now.

Hopefully it still has a lot of customization, I know people will compare it to Mario Kart, but there have been some solid kart racing games that were inspired by Mario Kart, like Crash Nitro Racing and Sonic And Sega All Stars Racing.

Agree. I'll buy it only if the load times are fast and it's 39.99 and available on PSN to download.

I don't care if it's anything like Mario Kart, which has rarely entertained me much. LBP, on the other hand...
