Sony has big plans for its latest platform game as it tries to turn the PS3 into a social networking console. But is LittleBIGPlanet the answer? We get playing to find out.
The premise is simple. You play Sackboy (or Sackgirl for that matter) and are charged with completing the 2D platform levels full of puzzles set out before you. Think early Sonic or Mario and you'll be on the right lines.
Doesn't sound that exciting or cutting-edge does it? Well the cutting edge bit comes in the fact that you can make levels and then share them with other LittleBIGPlanet users around the world with the best levels showcased in an online area within the game.
To that add some really cute graphics (think Monkey from the OnDigital and PG Tips adverts), a funky soundtrack and a tutorial voiceover by Stephen Fry that guides you through the game and you've got the makings of a classic from Sony that is sure to drive console sales in the run-up to Christmas.
