The Good

Those are three words to describe such an amazing game as LittleBigPlanet. You get to create your sack person, let them take journeys on pre-made levels (from the community or Media Molecule), and even create your own levels. Although it can easily be categorized into a 3D side scroller when you start playing, after your full experience with the game (collecting the trophies, buying things for it like costumes, levels, and creator packs on Playstation Store, completing the Media Molecule story, creating a level, etc) there is one word to describe this game: amazing. It's not only for kids, but for teens and adults alike.

The Bad

I couldn't really say I had much against the game after I finished the main story, but the trouble came when I created a few levels. I decided to get a storage area for all of the objects I had from my journeys in community levels, when a little box popped up that told me I my profile was too large. So I tried removing some things to make more room, but the box kept coming up. I had to press "ok" a billion times. However, Media Molecule released an update for the game available for download. I downloaded it, and though I haven't played the game in a while, I think it fixed the problem, since Media Molecule addressed that complaint fully.

The Bottom Line

A different experience compared to the mostly fast-paced games you would originally find on a PS3. It's an overall fun game that's recommended for PS3 owners.
