9.0 LittleBigPlanet Review

As someone who's bemoaned the number of ports in the PSP's library as much, if not more than the next person, it comes as something of a shock to realise that by being exactly that, a beautifully accurate port, LBP somehow becomes a better game in the process. Its core concept of an ever expanding universe filled with bite-sized platforming chunks dovetails perfectly with the pick-up-and-play nature of handheld gaming to the extent you start to wonder if it was actually always meant to be played this way.

Obviously if you loved the original then this fresh slice of near identical pie should delight you once again, if however, you loved the ingredients but were left a little nonplussed by the whole thing last time then this second helping could convert you.

Yeah really. I've been kind of skeptical about this version of the game for some reason. I love the PS3 game to death but I haven't decided on getting the PSP one yet. I still don't know if it's entirely needed in my library. I don't really play my PSP or DS too much, I'm more of a console gamer.

Yeah, I wasn't sure about it too but it looks like it came out good. I just want to know if it'll work with a hacked PSP.

I wanna get it but I don't want to buy it before I know that. Anyone know?

ReservoirDog3163269d ago

To be crystal clear: I do not, do NOT, condone piracy.
The PSP hacked is just a better music player. So, anyone out there, do you know if I put in a legit umd copy into my PSP, would it work?


saint_john_paul_ii3269d ago

it depends on the custom firmware you are using and if the game is compatible to the custom firmware i believe.

5.00 m33 but I'll change to another if it means playing this and Jak and Daxter.

GOTY 2008 ONLY on and ONLY possible on PlayStation 3.

LBP on PSP proves the physics can be done on 360. Lets not even talk about graphics of the console version of LBP because it was mediocre at best. Also the create mode was garbage. That stupid temp meter limited the full potential of LBP. You can't even create a decent level or object without that meter overheating. See, that's what happens when you have a console with only 256mb of ram. Media Molecule would have been better off making LBP for the 360.

ha, you expect people to actually believe what you're saying ??

The only thing that really pushed up the thermometer was having loads of creatures, which could be solved by having emitters that worked on a use once basis, problem solved. Sure the thermometer made sure you couldn't make it a stupidly long level, but it certainly didn't stop brilliant levels from being made.

Look at the bunker for example, great level, simple yet upon first few tries bloody difficult.

Also the user created dead space levels had great atmosphere to them.

"the create mode was garbage"

Trolling Xbot CONFIRMED.

Sigh3269d ago

So you're admitting that a 360's graphics/physics are equivalent to a PSP's? I'm fine with that argument, lollll.

I was very skeptical. Was afraid they compromised too much. Still I think this will end up averaging AA (80s). Great score nonetheless. Media Molecule sure have made a mark.

Saaking3269d ago

Even the PSP gets more exclusives AAAs
