Sackboy and friends hit the kart racing track! Customize anything you want in LittleBigPlanet Karting!

Go kart racing in video games is not a new thing. Heck, customizing your own kart and tracks and sharing it with friends has been done in games such as TrackMania and ModNation Racers. However, what LittleBigPlanet brings to the table is Sackboy and all his charming friends and extras. Surprisingly, this counts for a lot and LittleBigPlanet Karting is definitely worth picking up even if you thought you were done with racing games before.

Big at Heart

Don't let it fool you, LittleBigPlanet Karting may have the word little in its title, but it is crammed pack with content. The creation tools in the game allow for an infinite number of tracks to race on and can even add objectives, such as collecting eggs and bringing them back to your stash. There is, of course, racing and battle modes, but people can also use the creation tools in the game to create a pinball table or boss battles with multiple transformations.

Rest assured, if you are only in it for the racing, LittleBigPlanet Karting delivers on that as well. The controls are tight and there are quite a number of technical skills, such as drifting and grappling, that will help you win the race. Best of all, there is no random annoying blue shell to ruin your day. In fact, as long as you conserve your power-ups, you can use your skills to avoid attacks from other players.

Little Gripes

Overall, LittleBigPlanet Karting is a winner. If you love karting games, this one is a no-brainer. As the game is still new, there are a few hiccups here and there. The game can freeze for a bit now and then and the creation tools are a bit hard to use if you are not used to them. Still, it is easy to just download other people's creations and play those!

Have Your Ever Tried Kart Racing?

  • Yeah - it's an awesome speed rush.
  • Yes - but I didn't really like it.
  • No - but it looks like fun.
  • No. I prefer slower sports like chess.

I'm pretty sure that EVERYONE knows that testingcheatsenabled true code. If you didn't, right here fellas. But there's MORE. Let me tell ya.  NOTE: Some of these only work for PC. I'm not sure about console as I've never actually tried.  familyfunds [lastname] [moneyamount]- get as much money  as you want.   freerealestate- enables you to buy ANY house you want (must be done in map mode otherwise it's useless)  Buydebug- lets you buy ANYTHING at all.  enableLlamas [on/off]- this one is personally my favorite due to how funny it is. It gives a message saying "Llamas enabled."  constrainFloorElevation [true/false]- allows all terrain adjustments regardless of objects, Sims and other structures on them.  Know some more?

My favourite Pokemon is probably Magikarp, as when it evolves it is UNIMAGINABLY strong. I have one in Pokemon Red!
