Review: Three Speech's Apnomis on LittleBigPlanet for PS3

100°
316w ago - Today Sony's semi-official blog ThreeSpeech has made available a LittleBigPlanet review by a 'regular' there who goes by Apnomis.

In tune with many other recent LBP reviews, it appears Media Molecule's hit is still winning fans over in a big way.

To quote: Apnomis gave us his thoughts on LBP in a thread earlier today as follows:

"I was scared that LBP wouldn't live up to the hype, I needn't have worried - it's absolutely brilliant!!!

It's one of the best designed and most enjoyable FUN experience I've had on a console in years! There's just a charm about it that you can't help to be drawn too!

The story mode can be fun for the kids, but at the same time is incredibly challenging for a serious gamer that wants to unlock everything (the Gold trophy for completing all levels without dying should be tough), and the side unlockable levels are a great edition to keep things fresh.

I also played online and again this was just really fun, I couldn't even tell you why, there was just something so charming about 4 little sackpeople running around, dancing, helping each other, slapping each other, blowing each other up etc it was just incredibly entertaining! Often you'd hear people literally laugh out loud over their mic!
