Nov 3, 2022Sackboy: A Big Adventure, while downright gorgeous and playful, doesn’t really offer anything when it comes to even remotely challenging gameplay.
Nov 3, 2022Sackboy: A Big Adventure isn’t at its best on PC, with consistent stuttering and not many graphical options, but it’s still a fun experience you can play with just about anyone.
Nov 8, 2022Two years ago, Sackboy: A Big Adventure proved Sumo Digital was more than capable of creating its own unique vision of Media Molecule's banner Little Big Planet series. Now in 2022, as I write this while listening to the game’s choral remix of Material Girl, I can’t help but be excited for what is next for weird potential of future Sackboy games. People should go back and play this game, just not on PC.

A good platform game.
For me, the coolest aspect of this game is the song and the design. There are some stages with vibrant songs like uptown funk where the song matches the level design, for instance when the song gets more vigorous the ground makes Sackboy jump into the air and there are some paper dolls dancing in the background. But it is just a few stages that are like that, not all, which is a shame.
About the gameplay, it is ok, just generic 3D stages. It isn't bad but I think some stages lack some creativity, it just isn't as creative as the Mario 3D Games like Super Mario Galaxy or Odyssey.
The story is also super generic, basically just an excuse for the adventure to take place. It is a shame because here it could easily win the Mario franchise that has a generic story too but it just copied it, playing safe. The story is just about defeating Vex a 100% Manichaean bad villain that wants to conquer the world. But at least the dub is good and although it is a super simple story it can entertain. When you play safe, at least you can't go totally wrong.… Full Review »
