Little Big Planet [PlayStation 3]
If you’ve been concerned that the new generation of consoles has had relatively little in the way of new ideas, then LittleBigPlanet should be the game to restore your faith. It’s difficult to describe properly, which is a good thing, because it means it’s very different from the norm.
Amazing graphics bring the world of the main character, known as Sackboy, and his fabric-coated pals to life with realistic physics and a stunning level of detail. Played with friends, it’s a great puzzle adventure as you co-operate and compete across each level.
The game’s trump card though is its customization, not just the characters themselves but the whole game. It’s extremely easy to create your own levels, and the best fun is had simply setting up areas for mucking around and then sharing them online with other people.
