CGRundertow LITTLE BIG PLANET for PlayStation Vita Video Game Review
The minds behind the LittleBigPlanet series are some of the best in the industry. They just understand what makes for fun and entertaining video games. The style for the games fits perfectly with gameplay, to create a seamless experience. And I just knew that if you gave these wildly creative and talented people new fancy hardware, they will come up with some incredible ideas on how to work it into the series. Well, out comes the Playstation Vita, and a little bit later an all new LittleBigPlanet game that makes great use of all the Vita’s features. The game’s story is similar to the other games in the series. You are a sackboy, off in the world of LittleBigPlanet, the place where all our ideas and thoughts go after they have left our head. But this time, you are in the world of Carnivalia, a world that is a giant carnival. The Puppeteer has taken over the world with his drones and you are recruited to save the world. But the story has always played third fiddle to the gameplay and creation. The Vita version continues everything that is great about the series.
You will run, jump, grab, swing, bounce, and ride through tons of widely creative levels. The gameplay feels just a tight as ever, perfectly recreating the feel of the console. You can customize your sackboy with prize bubbles, just like the console and share prizes with the world. The levels are all beautiful too, making the Vita work overtime with so many colors and moving objects. But with this being made for the Vita, of course there is going to be some aspects making use of the features. The touch controls are implemented wonderfully, not feeling imposing and tacked on but rather like the series has been waiting for them all these years. You can move and drag objects with the touch controls, touch the background to open new paths, even use the camera to take pictures and create your own ingame stickers. Everything works perfectly and has no hiccups. You will always be looking forward to the next new feature. LittleBigPlanet Vita takes the series to a new system with incredible results. It is new and more LittleBigPlanet, so if you never liked the series before, this won’t change your mind.
But to any fan, this could quite easily become their favorite in the series.
