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
-poor AI
- controls take time to master mostly while on the track when you need to grapple onto something to swing cross a valley or whatever

Obviously this game is a modnation copy, we all are aware of that and its just one of those spinoffs. Honestly, I liked LittleBigPlanet better without the racing and the karts. Just saving characters in Craftworld was good enough for me.

I was excited to play the game, knowing some wonders will await me. Though one I saw that you needed an online pass, 50% of my excitement broke down into despair. But hey, you're thinking, well what about the gameplay part. To me, the storyline is half the game, then the online portion completes that half. I know they're trying to make more money but, online passes, for littlebigplanet? Come on.

The gameplay was ok, there were a few glitches with the drifting maneuver, but overall the controls were okay to me. I got quite bored though, I didnt want to go through all the story without some kind of online gameplay with my friends. But then I remembered about the online pass. Which really crushed me about this game.

If you're planning on buying this game, I wouldn't recommend it, but if you really want it go ahead. I would rather much rent it than buy it.
