Sackboy makes a return in an all new Little Big Planet for the PSP. Fun on the go is promised, but what was sacrificed along the way?

Play, Create, Share is the creed and motto of the Little Big Planet games, so how well does the PSP version size up?


Play

As Sackboy, you are able to run, jump and grab your way across levels. Along the way you will encounter puzzles and dangerous traps. Don't be fooled by the cuteness, this game can be hard! Luckily, you have unlimited lives to play through the levels, but dying will affect your score.


The PSP version features brand new levels. The main story of the game involves gathering up all the creators for a big carnival. There are thirty levels included in the game, spread across seven themed regions.


Unfortunately there is no multiplayer in the PSP version of the game, but that does not mean you cannot interact with other fans of the game!


Create

The main hook of Little Big Planet is not just the platforming, but the level creation. Collect prize bubbles while playing in order to get items to use to make your own levels.


Most of the creation process is good, but there are a few hiccups. Players familiar with the original game may get annoyed that some things don't work the same way as before. As well, as there are less buttons on the PSP than on the PS3 controller, it can take longer to do simple actions too. Finally, the game suffers lag with big levels and can crash your game.


However, in time you will get used to how the editor works. As well, you are able to take your work with you on the go and that makes a big difference, since you can always work on your level whenever you have the time, which is a big bonus.


Share

It is very easy to upload and download levels. You are able to download onto your memory stick and play them whenever, even without an internet connection.


Little Big Planet for the PSP looks and feels like the original. Some things have been sacrifice for the handheld, but the game still stays true to its motto.
