    A tricky and challenging single-player game, joyously mad multiplayer action, and an incredibly in-depth creator mode combine to deliver what is without doubt, the best LittleBigPlanet game yet. Wonderful stuff.

    It’s charming, fun, lighthearted and has a plethora of content to play and create. It’s a shame that the experience of LBP 3 couldn’t be a little more polished or the story mode just a little longer, because these are the only two blemishes on an otherwise excellent addition to the series.

    The addition of many new tools is a giant step forward for creative minds. The story mode is short but sweet and we had a good time exploring the new characters. Too bad the cute little friends seem to attract a lot of bugs.

    With the best level design yet, this is more LittleBigPlanet, but the new characters help keep it fresh.

    We don’t know if this is no longer Media Molecule’s LittleBigPlanet series, but Sumo Digital has done a nice job with its third iteration. There’s also no doubt that the game will be supported with awesome and limitless user generated content.

    LittleBigPlanet 3 is a great game for those who will dedicate themselves to the production of content and want to experience the creations of others.

    LittleBigPlanet 3 is still a charming platformer and creative sandbox at heart, yet without the full attention of Media Molecule, it feels like it sorta lost its soul.

The game has exceeded my expectations so far and I thoroughly recommend playing with friends who might be on the fence using the SHAREplay function because its a blast with more than 3 people playing at once. Lots of chaotic fun I promise you will be laughing all the way through because it really is that enjoyable, so if you liked the previous two LBPs you'll enjoy this one and if your new to the franchise and want to try it for yourself before you buy ask your friend to share it with you.

    Ever since '08 when the first LBP came out, I've loved this series.

    Ever since '08 when the first LBP came out, I've loved this series.

    The elements you enjoyed in the previous two games are still in this game, and in addition, you have new characters to play as!

    Level editor is fun, character customization is fun, stickers are fun.

    Overall, this game really shines on family game nights, and just a casual hangout with a buddy.

    I give LP3 an 8.1/10

    LittleBigPlanet 3
    Near Endless possibilities
    Newton wants to become the most creative person in the imagishpere and its up to you to stop him, so you set out to awaken the legendary sack heroes…
    This is my 2nd favorite littlebigplanet campaign behind the original..
    And of course you can play with friends or alone
    The campaign clocks in at around 5 and half hours and not only offers a decent challenge... but a great variety in level design that’s fun to play through and sparks the imagination for those interested in designing levels for the community…
    Each world acts as a hub world with 2-3 main missions and a few side missions
    In the main missions you’re going through unique and charming levels to collect a marble..
    These levels all feel different and each world introduces a new gadget to use...
    which give even more possibility to level design…
    You do occasionally have to reuse these items in later levels of the game... but I really appreciate the fact that they didn’t shove them all down your throat to use at once...
    There’s no constant switching items which I find insanely annoying when games do that…
    You’ll primarily be using 1 gadget and 1 gadget only in each level..
    These levels also of course contain prize bubbles which adds variety to the creation tool giving creators incentive to play through the campaign other than to get ideas for all of the cool new hazards…
    Sadly I feel the customization items for your characters are a bit lacking.. Tons of costumes... but very few accessories and other items to make you feel truly unique...
    However if you have played through little big planet 1 or 2, you get to import your unlockable from them
    once you’ve gathered both marbles or all 3 you unlock one of the 3 legendary heroes…
    There’s Oddscock, Toggle, and Swoop… all of which are even more fun to use than sackboy…
    Oddscok is a dog like creature that can run up walls and wall jump…
    Toggle is the brute that can toggle between large to weigh platforms down or break items and to a smaller version to get launched into the air, walk on water and fit into small cracks... a character who I believe had the most promise in terms of level design… and swoop is a bird that can fly and swoop…
    Sadly each of these characters only have 1 dedicated level each..
    They’re so fun to play as that I actually wouldn’t have mind if sackboy got a bit of a break and most of the levels belonged to them…
    But not completely focus on the new 3 because sackboy is still the star...
    Each world also ends in a boss battle… and the final 2 levels are dedicated to all 4 characters which are easily the more stressful parts in the game…
    especially considering the checkpoint limits where when you die too many times in one spot you’re punished by having to restart the entire level..
    I’ve never been a fan of this concept and I’m still not…
    and it definitely sucks when you have to go through these lengthy sections as each of the characters...
    mess up with one and you have to do the others you succeeded in all over again…
    And the checkpoints here are a little too generous at times in spots they don’t need to be while smacking you with very hard stretches that have no checkpoint in sight…
    Making levels feel a little unbalanced at times...
    The 2nd chunk of the game comes down to if you like playing levels or if you want to get your hands dirty and design them…
    There’s an online mode that lets you play countless levels designed by the community and for those looking to design those levels..
    Your only limitations are your imagination and your hard drive...
    and of course the 16 layers max for your levels constraint... but you can go wild with everything else as you’re able to link levels and create adventure maps
    You can design with any of the characters in mind that again play and feel completely different… it really is a great playground for the creative type.
    And littlbigplanet 3 also does a great job at teaching mechanics by delivering tools and their functions in a puzzle mode...
    so while you’re getting through these puzzle levels with the tools you’re also learning how to use them in creative mode without realizing it…
    Littlebigplanet 3 is a huge improvement that offers a great deal of possibility in level design and gameplay... The campaign feels standalone again and the community creations here are the most impressive yet... so if a 5 and a half hour campaign isn’t long enough to you, head online and enjoy the community levels...
    There’s something here for everyone and is a staple that should be in everyone PlayStation 4 collection…
    I give LittleBigPlanet 3
    an 8/10

    This is just another broken game to come out this year.

    This is just another broken game to come out this year.
    Developers should be held accountable for their broken games, i had no idea this game was broken until i played it.
    Planets disappear when i go into pod, that's a regular game breaking bug i keep on getting, some movie levels give me an error code and then crashes all the time so they only way to get further into the story is to skip the clip quickly after the clip starts.
    My game save has been corrupted once, but save was saved in the ps+ cloud.
    The boss i have to face with toggle, when i first got to the boss i little toggle disappears and i can't even see him, and when i restarted i was playing as sack boy.
    And here we are 1 and a half months after release the game still has not been fixed.
    I was a huge fan of the first 2.

    I'll give a positive review when the game becomes playable.
