    Sackboy: A Big Adventure doesn't reinvent anything but it does well what a 3D platformer can do well. Unfortunately, the solo experience doesn't have the same excitement as playing it in co-op. In fact, playing single player means missing the multiplayer levels. If you have someone to share it with, you are going to find an adventure that makes you smile at all times, offering lots of fun. A challenge for adults and children.

    Sackboy: A Big Adventure features some great platforming across gorgeous levels, with plenty to do and collect along the way. The music is a lovely touch to a rich and fulfilling adventure, and playing with others is the best way to enjoy it.

    Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a blast to play, no matter where you play it. Its PS4 shortcomings only lie with with graphic fidelity and loading times. Apart from that, Sackboy is back and better than ever on all fronts and generations.

    It's a first look at how games developed to work on both last-gen and current-gen will be adapted to that challenge, and in this, Sackboy: A Big Adventure appears to shine - although we only got to try it on PS4 for this review. This 10-12 hour adventure's humor, quirky personality, and entertaining gameplay offer tons for those looking for a fun family experience this holiday season. While it's harder than ever to bring people together, this is an experience that should be shared, so waiting for the online patch to release would be the right move.

    Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a successful outing, which with some adjustments in a possible next installment could even be a step in a better direction for the knitted protagonist. Especially in co-op great fun, although unfortunately we still have to wait for online co-op.

    Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a delightful platformer that mostly does a great job despite playing a bit too easy most of the time.

    A fun and well designed platformer that lacks the charm to make a long standing impact. You should try it if you want a good and family friendly game for PlayStation.

    This game is great. Better than the LittleBigPlanet games. It's a very well crafted solid game. Haven't had this much fun in couch co-op in a while.

    I'm not the biggest fan of LBP games, although I own the PSP and Vita titles. This game seems to be more of a Mario-esque LBP game, which isI'm not the biggest fan of LBP games, although I own the PSP and Vita titles. This game seems to be more of a Mario-esque LBP game, which is welcome in my opinion. It sort of reminds me of the Yoshi games as well, with its craft-centric visual aesthetic. I think the levels are designed wonderfully, the progression is perfect, the gameplay is fun and addicting and the characters are endearing. The music is also one of the standouts. It's light on story but that doesn't detract much from the experience. Overall, this one hit me hard in the best way possible. I wasn't expecting to love it as much as I do. I just can't stop playing it. Let's just say that if this was a Mario game, it'd be getting 9's and 10's from all outlets. The developers should be applauded. Expand
