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.

Banned for driving me to end the silence and driving me to say:*Coconuts are a nice fruit and it's as delicious as people think it is. In other words I don't mind if you have your own opinion. I don't mind at all. So even if you have a negative opinion on long paragraphs, I will respect that and let you know that you never need to read all of this. It's just here as part of my ban to Abbergrl. It doesn't matter if you read this because she is still banned. I have nothing against her, Abbergrl is queen. You slay grl. No pun intended. Actually it was definitely intended. Would I lie to you? Na! I should be doing something important but instead I'm doing this. All in the name of queen Abbergrl of the KW kingdom. I shall now bow down to her even though I'm banning her. What is up with me? And what is up with you? Why are you still reading this? Who knew people were so attentive? I wish I was like that TBH; how I envy you. Gah, I'd give anything. Except my family, friends, and electronics. I'd make a shout out to all of them but they won't be reading this and neither is anyone else. If you're still reading this, wow. I apologise if some of my questioning is overdone. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Maybe you lost your place in this paragraph, who knows? Maybe you lost your place in this paragraph, who knows? I love a good mystery. Ever read any mysteries and realised that the evilest looking people are never guilty? Never judge a book by its cover. Known fact: I have never screamed or cried at any movies. Known fact 2: I have written longer nonsensical paragraphs. Yeah I don't like to bore people, even though I just did, so I'll end it here. I warned you there was no point to this. Grey squirrels eat bagels but purple squirrels like knitting, why are circles round? Tulips, because 64 is not an ice cream. Oh, and coconuts for life.*
