JeffLevine: Best story mode in a platformer in years (decades?), still not sold on the community stuff though.

Polyphonic: I find the gameplay of LBP a little boring. If not for that, this would easily be the game of the year for me. I find this game impressive, and it deserves to be mentioned.

Jamescobo: Of course it was a disappointment – how could it not be a disappointment? You’re kidding yourself if you can’t see the brilliance of what it actually turned out to be, though. Thanks to the occasionally frustrating controls, LBP is, if not a Mario-slaying classic platformer in its own right, at least a studied, well-executed tour of the genre’s most reliable conventions, right down to the deity-invokingly infuriating final level before the boss (that wheel can go fuck itself for real). Besides, I’m tempted to cut Media Molecule some slack out of respect for their sheer corniness; the only way they could ever hope to release a sequel to this neverending game would be to promise to get the jumping exactly right.

Why LittleBigPlanet Is Web 2.0 For Games, Fulfilled

EZ Snappin: It’s a beautiful concept with striking art direction wrapped around a floaty turd of a platformer.

ZS: It’s too bad that I’ll probably never own a PS3 and my friends don’t have one either. I’ll never see this in action, other than Youtube clips, likely.

Forksclovetofu: Gawd, if this makes me buy a PS3, I’m gonna be so pissed.
