Yes, it's finally here! The game all PlayStation 3 owners have been waiting for post-MGS4. It's not Killzone 2, and it's not Resistance 2. It's LittleBigPlanet, Sony's make-your-own-adventure game, a first of its kind, and certainly one of the biggest releases of this generation. Few games have generated the kind of excitement that has surrounded LittleBigPlanet, and with good reason...what other game allows you to create your very own experience? We've got our own copy of LittleBigPlanet, and believe the hype, folks...this is sensational.

If you're not familiar with the concept of LittleBigPlanet here's what you need to know...Basically, you take control of these little rag-dolls called sacks. Your main character's "name" is Sack Boy, a fully customizable doll that'll allow you to change virtually everything about him. You start off with a simple brown Sack Boy, and as you progress through the game's story mode, you'll collect a horde of items. These items will range between anything from decorational tools to customize levels, down to items that you apply on your doll.

I started off with a brown Sack Boy, who, after 20 minutes of playing, somehow formed into a ragdoll incarnation of Jack Sparrow. The creation of Sack Sparrow, as I call him, wasn't really intentional, it just sort of happened randomly while I was toying around with the creator. With my brief time in the beta and with the actual game, I've already seen some really wild creations, including some rather solid attempts at Nintendo characters. The customization aspect is superbly deep, and much like the rest of the game, is arguably only limited by your own imagination. Additionally, these wild creations aren't just limited to customizing your character, but also creating levels.

It's important to mention just how addictive LittleBigPlanet can be. Even though I've had access to the game for weeks now, the amount of time I spend with it per session always tends to be more than a few hours. Time simply flies when you're in the world of LBP, there's just so much to do, so much to play, and so much to try out; a "quick" session of LittleBigPlanet almost always turns into a mini-marathon of exploring a chunk of the stages that have been created thus far in the game's world. And that's precisely how your experience will end up; every time you boot your game up, there will be something new for you to do.

It's comical just how addictive LBP can be, because even the simplistic stages, the ones you'd think you'd never play more than once. have a purpose, if only to finish them the fastest and sit at the top of the leader board. Simplistic stages may be quick and initially seem pointless, but they're not that pointless when you're replaying them, desperately trying to climb the leader board. Artistic stages using music can also be put together; during the beta, I recall seeing a stage where running across a board would play a note of "Sweet Child of Mine" by Guns n' Roses, so if kept your running pace consistent, the melody played consistently as a result. It's simplistic, but its execution is brilliant if only for the sheer amusement.

Like I said, LBP is only limited by your imagination, and to further show you how detailed you can get...some have gone as far as to make their best replicas of stages from Mario Bros. and even Sonic the Hedgehog. Other brilliantly themed levels include a God of War stage, Indiana Jones, and even Uncharted. Again, because all of this is user generated content, the room for variation here is absolutely infinite.

For those who don't wish to just participate playing random user content, there is a story mode that boasts beautiful and lush creations by the Media Molecule team. Each stage is oozing with style and superb artistic details, making LBP feel more like a carefully crafted fantasy storybook...rather than just your everyday videogame. And that's what makes LBP such a special product, it's not an everyday experience and it's certainly not an everyday game. And if you link up with a group of buddies online or off, the experience becomes even better cooperatively.

If I had to address complaints with the game, they'd be limited to just two control issues. First, because the stages support numerous levels of depth, you'll come across levels that will make you alternate between stepping into the foreground, background, or the middle (a'la King of Fighters games). Side-stepping in LBP doesn't seem very responsive sometimes, requiring a more than solid push of the direction in order for your character to perform the action. Furthermore, sometimes the controls can feel floaty and will take some time getting used to. A heavier feeling over your character, something more akin to 2D Mario games, would probably make for a tighter feeling game, for sure.

Visually, everything you've seen from the screenshots has carried over to the final game. The backgrounds are meticulously detailed with some of the best looking textures in a videogame to date. Some of the details in the game are bordering photorealism, even the Sack Boys' cloth texture is beautifully done. While the characters you run into are of the simplistic sort, the art direction and the beautiful texture work still makes LittleBigPlanet one of the best looking games of this generation by far. Feel free to plop your kids down by the TV and show off just how gorgeous this game is, and hey, perhaps even create a storybook stage for them as a treat. The great thing about LittleBigPlanet is that not only is it stunning, but it also runs at a brisk framerate rendering 720p, without a jagged edge in sight.

As far as the audio is concerned, well...that's a touchy subject as many of you may know. While we're not quite sure how Sony is addressing the one track with verses from the Qur'an, we suspect that they will just mute the chanting voice and keep the rest of the track intact. Despite not having an immense assortment of tunes, the soundtrack is nothing short of perfection; this is easily the best soundtrack I've heard since perhaps Donkey Kong Country and Super Mario 64 - neither of which had anymore diversity in their soundtracks. For the story mode, there is quite a bit of voice acting in the game, largely from the narrator, Stephen Fry, who guides you through the game's story with some really sharp dialogue.

It's a great time to be a gamer, and with a game like LittleBigPlanet part of the PlayStation 3's portfolio it's just gotten a lot better. If you haven't made up your mind on a purchase of LBP yet, then allow me to convince you; not owning LittleBigPlanet and being a PlayStation 3 owner should be a crime against, well...something. Media Molecule has created a game that'll go down in videogame history as one of the best gaming achievements ever, and you'd be extremely foolish to pass this up. There is absolutely nothing out there that can give you this much bang for your buck.

Even if you may think you would never make maps, the amount of possibilities with all the mechanics in the game will still draw you in to make something. You might surprise yourself and make something completely awe-inspiring. If you really aren't sure, then it is at least worth a rent.

Haha, 11/10 is so very true. Awesome review, Arnold. I completely agree with the control issues regarding switching on the Z plane, but MM has made a statement that they too aren't satisfied with it and are hopefully working on a smoother way to do it. They made a very good decision with the guy who does the narrator, he is just fun to listen to.

Have a great vacation, Blackstar. Trolling will not be tolerated. You've been banned until my 45th birthday. I.P. ban if you return.

I also don't like how they said that they will be releasing the game the Week of the 27th. It may mean nothing, which I desperately hope for, but this could mean the delay is longer than at first though for us pre-orderers.

And Come on people. I haven't even been here half a year and I've known Arnold the entire time. Ben even said in a previous update that Arnold was going to do the LPB review...

this is the best fan-based play-station game site, most up-to-date news for PS community, and really hands-on reviews. thanks to Ben, Arnold and all the other staff! hail gaming!!!

P.S. As I stated in my other postings, I am only a JRPG fan, but after the review here, I might give it a try for this LBP just to extend my gaming horizon. Hope it is as good as stated.

BTW, I find IGN game reviews sometimes are so biased, the reviews are sometimes so not reflecting the real quality of games, i.e. their most recent review for Golden Axes Beast Rider only gives it 3.2 out of 10, thats totally irresponsible for the gamers and for the developers. Judging by the video trailer or youtube gameplay, it does not deserve that low score wutsoever.

Personally I don't think IGN is that bad.

If you want bad, look at sites like Eurogamer. In my opinion, they are just this shy of being blatant 360 fanboys. EVERYTHING they write - including news articles/spin, game reviews and previews - seems to imply that the 360 is better value for money. GameSpot is bad as well (I'm thinking of the R and C: TOD review with "too much variety and diversity" being a factor for marking it down), but in recent months, it seems to have toned down the 360 fanboyism somewhat.

Compared to these two, IGN is WAY better.

ceedot: I take offense to that. I don't think I've EVER said the PS3 version of a multiplatform game is better...at least, not yet. And I'll be the first to recommend the 360 version of certain games, like The Orange Box, Madden 08, and others.

I'd be very interested to know where I ever said anything questionable about "the PS3 being superior" in a certain aspect where that clearly wasn't the case.

If Ben had reviewed this Arnold would he have given it the 11 also lol ? As Ben doesn't give out 10's so probably not me thinks.

I knew it was Arnold haha
Yes I do read at the bottom of the article to see who it was.

But yes great review, it'll have to be re-reviewed again when they fix the 3D movement of the sackboy(backwards/forwards). Then I think it'll get a perfect 10, well at least I think so...

Can't wait for this, I really hope you guys play my two levels: Meteor Strike and Ninja Ways(still need to edit this one some more, but it's deadly good)

Aftab: Aw, I thought I was diplomatic, too. ;) And if you don't think Arnold tells it as it is, wait until you see his MotorStorm review......

I know you're not being offensive or anything, I'm just saying. :)

@Ben or Arnold (I know the difference hehe) - I've been wondering about this for the longest, but always forget to ask.

How many MB do LBP levels usually take up? I'm hoping they're about 30MB or so, because the PSN is so slow.

Or anybody else that can answer this, thanks.

LOL @ 11/10! Being a regular review reader for many years, I have been waiting for the day someone finally rates over the standard limit, and you sir are a genius! Great review Arnold.

Cannot wait till I FINALLY get my hands on the game! I've only played the beta for about a day, sampling the story mode and all, and have to say I'm addicted... Then the game gets delayed the week I am free and is released the week I am bombarded with work lol.

I've seen the question posted. For the record, this game is only HD if your TV supports 720p output. If you have an older TV that supports 1080i but not 720p, expect to see a fuzzy Wii style 4:3 game in 480 standard definition (albeit progressive) instead. Neither the game nor the PS3 firmware upscale its lucious 720p HD graphics to 1080i, so you may end up playing LBP in standard def.

This was the tipping point for me to start saving to get a PS3. One of the main reasons why Halo 3 is my favorite game is because of its user-created content, what with forge, file share, and gametypes so customizable that you can play a racing game, then a sports game, then a platformer, then a shooter without changing disks. I generally don't get many new games in a year, so replay value is one of the most important things I look for in a game. As an example of what I mean, I've logged over 500 hours in Oblivion in all my various characters.
