So, given all of the massive hype that's surrounded LittleBigPlanet, is it justified?
For once, we can actually say "yes," most of what you've read about the game is true. Granted, there are a few niggles. The controls sometimes feel a little sluggish, especially when trying to time jumps on bouncy platforms. There are a couple of gotchas in the level design mode which, while not exactly show-stopping, are at least annoying.
But despite those minor gripes, what we have here is possibly one of the PS3's first absolute must-have titles. Media Molecule has taken the platform genre and reinvented it in a cool and beautiful way that can excite both hardcore and casual gamers alike.
