LittleBIGPlanet Karting 

 

I had such high hopes for LittleBIGPlanet Karting. On paper it had everything going for it. It had the potential to be a wonderful game for families. Unfortunately LittleBIGPlanet Karting turned into the biggest disappointment game from Christmas 2012. To be blunt, LittleBIGPlanet Karting was a flop. Sadly for Sony it was not the only flop they had trying to reach families during the Christmas season.

LittleBIGPlanet Karting tries to merge the LittleBIGPlanet concept with the kart racing genre. We can modify our vehicles, drives, tracks, etc. ModNation Racers did a better job of this in all regards. Which is really sad since they both come from Sony. Racers pick up weapons in LittleBIGPlanet Karting and shoot their opponents with them. Or at least they try to. This is the majority of the violence in this PS3 game.

Getting hit by something in LittleBIGPlanet Karting can ruin your race. The poor balance can easily move you from first place to last place. The reverse does not happen. I had to constantly fight and work my way from last into first. Depending on where you get hit, you could lose a race that was in the bag. The computer is vicious in pulling this strategy on the player.

There is a story line in LittleBIGPlanet Karting about stopping these other characters. It barely seemed to apply except right before a race when someone would waste our time asking us to defeat them. I got it the first time, I did not need to keep hearing it every single race. Some of the voices and sounds in LittleBIGPlanet Karting just grated me the wrong way.

The controls in LittleBIGPlanet Karting are really loose. Many of the tracks are challenging based on the poor controls. I did not have fun playing LittleBIGPlanet Karting. I have played numerous kart racing games and LittleBIGPlanet Karting is one of the worst.

One family member can play LittleBIGPlanet Karting locally. They can go online to play against others if you allow that in your family. LittleBIGPlanet Karting is compatible with the regular normal PS3 controllers, and with the PS Move/PS Eye combination. Even with the disc you will need to clear 2.2 gigs in space on your PS3 hard drive to be able to play LittleBIGPlanet Karting. Then there are updates, and your saves which add to the memory usage.
