Grab your Sackboy by the stitches and delve into a user-created universe, in Little Big Planet, available from Games Basement for just £9.49!
According to a price-comparison, Games Basement’s offer for Little Big Planet is the cheapest around, sparing you three bob! Little Big Planet created quite a stir upon its arrival, promising a wealth of user-creation tools and promising platform gameplay. It averaged an impressive 95/100 on MetaCritic, with G4 TV awarding it a much-deserved perfect score.
Little Big Planet is essentially two games wrapped in one package. To begin with, you must create your own Sackboy, a plush toy avatar of various fabrics and colours who can be customised as you progress. Then, you can decide to enter the story-mode and collect further tools and equipment, or, on a limited budget, begin creating your very own levels with the game’s robust toolbox.
Whatever your decision, both options are simply marvellous. The story-mode is a charming romp across cardboard landscapes, stitched-together with quirky and brilliant storylines. It’s pseudo-2D in the Mario vein, with your Sackboy hopping across enemies and obstacles, although it is augmented with a powerful physics-system. Your Sackboy can drag objects around, depending on their weight and material, and can gain or utilise momentum to his advantage.
But it is the user-created option which truly sets Little Big Planet apart. Now is a perfect time to buy the game, as the community has established a wonderful array of levels and scenarios for you to enjoy and learn from. Some of the best examples rival the developer’s own story-mode creations, an achievement that only serves to convey how well-designed the game is.
