LBPK takes you through eye popping, fast paced, and overall creative tracks in order to stop the Hoard, a race of creatures who steal crafts and never uses them for others.
Race, Arena, and Pathfinding levels with weaponators (weapons / boosts) to aid you to first place across eye-popping, familiar (from the series), and greatly designed tracks. Solid controls.
A story mode, level creators, and a large community of players (Requires a purchasable online pass). Local split screen and online multiplayer.
A creative, but semi-brief, story taking you through 7 worlds. Unlockable minigames available over the story.
Sounds / Music:
A slew of guest artists and a comeback of soundtracks from previous games. SFXs are good.
Pros / Cons:
+Creative Tracks and Story
+Soundtracks are Great
-Medium Length Story
-$10 Online Pass
-Can be challenging for younger people
-Overall Price is "Iffy".
Overall, I have to give this game a standing ovation!

the popularity of this series may seem overated to some but the creativity itch some of us have really what makes this game spark the game is a racer spinoff of the popular little big planet series like mariocart iam saying mariokart cause thats at its core its predessor. the game the story overall isnt why you play this game its the multplayer and its online play which do the creativity itch the community is well earned which that was the core aspect they made this series cool is the i call it minecraft syndrome.Which means your given a toy box full of tools items etc which some you can earn both in story and online and you can build and create your own race tracks which may seem kinda boring for a normal racer but in big planet the ideas and concepts are endless graphics stick true to games past artwork it hasnt changed and i hope it doesnt it really makes this series stand out this the game you would get your family to play with you its alot of fun and reminded on why i loved mariokart as a kid and this isnt mariokart. Gameplay again copys the play dirty get a gun rocket fire it at your fellow racers to slow them down the controls take some time to get used to and the ai sometimes isnt great which this is the games only fault overall i would gave karting a rental at the last i doubt you will not play it out after you collected everything but i would atleast get for when you have friends over and you want to have a good time. overall i give this game a B-"
overall grade B-
+ stands out isnt a wasted attempt at mariokart nor nintendo
+ community is where the true experince is with this series not the story
+ online play
- controls take time to master mostly while on the track when you need to grapple onto something to swing cross a valley or whatever
