      Little Big Planet is a highly open-ended development and platforming game exclusive to the Sony PlayStation 3 console and the PSP handheld gaming system. While both have large amounts of content, and hours of gameplay, the PlayStation 3 version represents a fuller, more well-rounded game.

      The main premise of Little Big Planet is that the player takes the role of a Sackboy - a little puppet-like character the player is free to dress up as they please - and adventures through special worlds that contain very simple platforming action similar to games as old as the Mario Bros series. Along the way, players will solve puzzles, unlock hidden stickers and decorations for their home, and find new costumes and accessories. Mini-games and new worlds are also incorporated throughout the game, and the narrator frequently comes up to provide hints and the occasional dry criticism.

      The in-game


      content is very enjoyable. While the controls of the Sackboy are a little difficult at first, it is an easy adjustment once a few levels have been cleared. There is one action button, a menu button, and from there just the usual directional controls. Most of the levels included in the game are very basic, without much variety. They are scaled in difficulty, giving the player an easy learning curve to adjust to. This can get boring, though, so it is easy to want to move on to the online content.

      This is easily the most exciting part about Little Big Planet. Other players have created and uploaded their own levels, including emulations of popular games, copies of fictional worlds from films and literature, and many wild, original planets from truly creative players. Along the way, it is easy to encounter very poorly ...


      • planned levels - I found quite a few that were unbearable, either for how simple they were, or for how stupid their premise was - but it is worth wading through the less enjoyable levels to find the game’s many gems. Players have the option to “object” to a level if it contains content not appropriate for younger audiences, allowing players a level of control over what content is approved. I have spent most of my time playing Little Big Planet online, with other players, through player-generated levels.

        The multi-player aspect of Little Big Planet is fun as well. All players must reach the end of a level and be scored against each other. It can get competitive when everyone is trying to collect items, but players can opt to play cooperatively instead, for just as much replay value. The silly costumes other

        players around the globe have put on their Sackboys just makes the game more enjoyable along the way.

        Finally, this is a great, budget-friendly game. With good graphics and a lighthearted soundtrack, the overall quality is very high. The Game of the Year Edition, which includes bonus content not found in the regular edition (such as exclusive costumes based off of characters from the Metal Gear Solid series) retails for a mere $29.99. The player-generated levels are free, and additional downloadable content (such as extra costumes) tends to be cheap, not to mention bundled in a way that provides plenty of content at a low cost. I would highly recommend Little Big Planet to any PlayStation 3 owner looking for a great multiplayer game that takes advantage of the open world of online play and keeps a high replay value even after months of enjoyment.
