|Sony's most unusual release for 2008 is, on the surface, a platform title starring a stitched burlap doll called Sackboy. Yet beneath its whimsical exterior lies a robust editing tool that allows owners to create, save, and share custom levels. You are introduced to LittleBigPlanet through a campaign simply entitled "Play." This mode features an interactive tutorial and a series of offbeat levels where you'll be able to drive vehicles, activate switches, avoid hazards, solve puzzles, and defeat boss characters. By collecting orbs throughout each level, you'll earn various items, accessories, and stickers to help personalize the game to your liking.|
The other two modes are arguably the heart and soul of LittleBigPlanet: "Create" and "Share." You can cobble together levels filled with an assortment of objects, platforms, dangers, triggers, and other surprises. Tools to create more exotic stages are unlocked by completing the tutorial, and other useful items will become available while advancing through the main campaign. Up to three custom levels can be published to the online community, who will rate and rank your creations. Those who deliver exciting content will be allowed to publish more levels, but there are no restrictions on the stages you create for friends. Up to four players can work together during the campaign as well as the creation phase.

I have played this game before on my friend's system. I decided to buy a PS3 and knew I had to get Little Big Planet.
This game is based around addicting platform style gaming as well as a fun and always changing story line. You will go from playing a level that takes a lot of patience and strategy to an absolutely fun a fast-paced level so as to give the player relief from constant stressful levels. The music is awesome and fitting for continuous platforming. Everything about the campaign levels pulls the player in a keeps the player always interested.
Aside from all the fun, the power that is packed into this cute and unassuming little game is far beyond impressive. This game's story line is based around an ever expanding universe created by the world's combined imagination. When I speak of power I speak of the player's ability to create fully customizable levels that are based in real life physics. Everything has a weight and everything moves based on its mass and the in-game gravity. It is truly impressive to play through the levels and see how intricately they have designed them. The player himself is given the tools and abilities to be able to create the same kinds of deep levels as the creators have done, and could even go further. It takes but one's imagination and patience to create a beautifully sculpted masterpiece.
Aside from the amazingly developed campaign and level building modes, they have created a deeply immersive network of user-created levels. You and your friends can play in levels that people from around the world have created, thus achieving a part of the games basis of its story. If you don't have anyone to play on the network content you can always join up with other player from around the world.
Final say: This game redefines platformers and is as impacting as the original Mario Bros. This has risen the bar and will go down in gaming history as one of the best games ever created!
The main storyline is that you play in a world conjured up by everyone's dreams. This game is exactly that - if you can dream it, you can make it! From customizing your character, "Sackboy", in just about any way imaginable, to creating your own levels, to even designing your own home space, or, "Pod", this game pretty much works for you! Tons of customization items can be found throughout levels, letting you let your Sackboy represent YOU. Using stickers and added decorations, you can fully customize the design of your Sackboy. You can also save the outfits that you make for your Sackboy, so that you can wear any outfit you make whenever you want. You can use stickers and decorations found on levels to customize the look of your Pod to the design of your EXACT liking. Still not enough? You can create your own levels, making them exactly how you want to. The tools that are given to you allow you to make your levels look as professional as the levels in-game. You can use designs that you unlock for your level, or you can creat your own designs, both 2D and 3D, by editing the existing ones. The sky is the limit - no - there IS NO LIMIT to the customization and fun that this game brings to the table. The story mode has amazing levels, and you can play them alone, or, for added fun, with friends! All in all, this game is WAY MORE than I expected it to be, and, in my opinion, it is one of the greatest, most innovative games ever created, hands down. You will definitely be blown away by this game, a clear 'Game of the Decade' nominee! (If such a prize exists!) :]
In most cases the phrases "cute" and "great game" don't belong in the same sentence let alone the same review, but Little Big Planet is a game as cute as it is creative as it is fun.
You control a little "sackperson" which can be completely customized to look however you want him or her to look. Once you are done with dressing up you doll to look as silly as you want it to be you set off on your adventure! The game plays like an old nintendo platform game, you collect points and you jump, The only difference is you can play with up to 3 others and their own special sackpeople. This game is definitely more fun with more people but if you lack friends or they can't come over you can go online and instantly start playing with other people, no codes or special invites required!
The game is easy to play, needing really only a stick and the 'x' button to play, so anyone from your baby sister to gramps can play it. But don't mistake it for easy, some levels can become quite challenging. Its worth the price because of its infinite replayability through user created levels.
I didnt get a chance to get the game when it first came out, but I can honestly say I missed out on a lot of things. the game has a constant internet connection going to help levels load super fast; and boy do they ever; as you run about in a side-scrolling 3D world. you have the ability to create your own character in most any way you choose.. skin color, clothing, hair, even decorate them with stickers and things, or put a flower in their hair. it features 4 player capability, both online and offline. you can even create your own levels, with many MANY intricate tools given to you throughout the game. the difficulty gets progressively harder as you play through, but the main attraction isnt the story mode, so its not terribly difficult, just tricky. as the aim is to play in a multiplayer fashion, the game even has an ability to play other people's levels from around the world, through the Community option. truly this is a game for anyone who likes to create, have fun, or even just tinker with explosives(yes, you can even put bombs in your levels)
The Game of the Year Edition fixed a lot of bugs from the original, some of which were actually very useful, and others quite detrimental. it even includes many MANY extras that would normally cost you over $30 to buy from the Content menu, such as the Metal Gear Solid themed levels; which are exquisitely done, and even come with special items for you to use in your levels to make them like MGS as well! even more content is being added, but some are being taken away. so the earlier you get this game, the better!
On the outside, this game looks like a linear 2-D platformer with amazing graphics and design. The awe inspiring catch is all the stages you play through the story mode can be made and changed by you. Once you get into the level creator, expect to lose countless hours being your own little Miyamoto. It's astounding to see what other people have made through the online community. You can go online and play, share and talk with other's stages and your own. The tutorial for level creating is in depth and easy to follow. The only gripes I could come up with is the jumping ability of the sackboys/girls is not accurate. You tend to stay in the air a split second too long (BIG problem when playing a mario replica stage). Also, the level creator may be TOO big for more casual players. You really have to invest time with this game if you want create a good level, but if you don't consider yourself a Da Vinci, you'll find the story mode and the endless amount of creative content can keep the fun going for years! This IS the killer app for the PS3 (MG4 came close) and there is no reason not to get this masterpeice of creativity and fun!
