    Overall, a great start for the PS5 era and a perfect example of a game that doesn’t have to be in-your-face to still dazzle.

    Sackboy: A Big Adventure is incredible — solo or with others. It has an amazing amount of content for a game that most will write-off haphazardly. It’s an example of fun creativity that comes with people who are passionate about bringing a good experience to gamers of all ages.

    It has been very easy to forget about Sackboy in the whirlpool of new generation games, attracting so many expectations. But it's even easier to fall in love with it, becoming one of the surprises not only of PlayStation 5, but the year. Sumo Digital has understood the genre perfectly and although there is nothing here that you may not have seen a few times already, it is impossible not to be impressed by the good design of its levels. It doesn't matter if you move to the new generation: if you like platform games, you have to play it.

    It's innocent, it's fun, and it feels unique. We need more games like it, even if they don't push the genre forward...which is by no means a requirement.

    Sackboy: A Big Adventure is dripping with charm and makes excellent use of the DualSense controller.

    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.

    Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a beautiful yet very classic platformer. Sumo Digital delivers a decent game mostly made for children : with a repetitive gameplay and a lack of real challenge, it still offers to a younger audience an unharmful and colorful adventure. Too bad the DualSense wasn't used more on PS5.

    This game is really cute and an absolute joy. You wont regret 100% or platinuming the game. Amazing moveset, level design and stunningThis game is really cute and an absolute joy. You wont regret 100% or platinuming the game. Amazing moveset, level design and stunning visuals. Story is full of great humor and will make you laugh even when youre an adult. Its just amazing platforming experience and i dont regret any second of it. This game is just fun and in later worlds challenging at the same time. Time trials (or knitted knight trials) are the most fun i had with time trials in a game. This is a must play when youre a fan of platformers and have PS4/PS5. Stunning and Amazing game 10/10. Btw the plush with special edition is just sooo cute and i would reccomend the special edition of the game more than the standard one. Its really worth 90 dollars and you get a lot of content with it. Or when youre digital only theres digital deluxe edition that includes the digital content of the special edition. Its the same but without a Tiger Sackboy plush and a phisical artbook. (You actually get the digital artbook in both versions) Expand

    Absolutely fantastic launch title for the PS5. As a long time fan of Littlebigplanet it's nice to see a departure from the main formula. TheAbsolutely fantastic launch title for the PS5. As a long time fan of Littlebigplanet it's nice to see a departure from the main formula. The controls are responsive and less heavy compared to Littlebigplanet. We now have combat moves to freshen things up. The soundtrack is great, fits the overall mood and setting very well. The graphics are absolutely stunning and ray tracing has been implemented well in reflections and lighting. Yet the game still retains 60fps with ease.

    The story is as you'd expect in a mascot platformer, but not to say it detracts from the experience.

    There is lots to do, from collecting all the orbs, completing the challenges as well as co op and single player trails.

    If you like 3D platformer. Sackboy: A Big Adventure should not be missed.
