    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.

    For this third installment it is no longer Media Molecule behind the sackboys so did Sumo Digital managed to make a wonderful game like twoFor this third installment it is no longer Media Molecule behind the sackboys so did Sumo Digital managed to make a wonderful game like two previous episodes ?

    Technically it is disappointing for an exclusivity, you can clearly feel the weight of the PS3 version, the artistic direction is very cute (like always in LittleBigPlanet) but it could have been better detailed, with more effects (collision, dust, etc.). The server are not the strongest and you can be disconnected pretty often if you play a lot. Clearly not the technical level you could expect from an AAA game backed by Sony.

    Concerning the gameplay you will find the three pillars of the game : play, create and share. The play part is upgraded with three new characters, each with their own attributes, it's a good idea, sadly they didn't make a great use of them in the campaign. Which makes for the perfect transition with the "share" pillar, the community of the game is still great, some levels created by regular players are simply amazing and you can find some levels created specifically for those new characters, all the levels from the two previous games are also playable so there is really a lot of awesome content available for the community and brought by this same community. Finally the creating tool is very easy to manage and offers a lot of possibilities.

    The story is classic for a 2D platformer, the young ones will probably like it while the older players will be more fond of the characters and the funny dialogues. But the campaign is also pretty short (6 hours to finish it) even if you have to replay all the levels if you want the 100%, but like I said the content from the community is almost endless so you can end up playing the game for more than 50 hours easily.

    So in conclusion LittleBigPlanet 3 is a good platformer but it is mostly based on the ground work made by Media Molecule and to its community, Sumo Digital didn't upgrade it enough to make this third installment as great as the two previous one.
