Life ain't easy when you're made out of sack, but that sure doesn't mean it can't be fun!

LittleBigPlanet is a... well, it doesn't really fit into any category you ever heard of, so we'd probably best just describe it. We'll start with the more recognisable stuff - platforming. LittleBigPlanet comes packed with over 50 levels of traditional platforming goodness.

Well, we say traditional, but don't expect it to feel like any other platformer you ever played. It comes in 2.5D, so it captures that classic side-scrolling feel while still offering a bit of depth to play with. What really sets it apart, however, is the physics and the ingenious level design. Everything moves as you'd expect it to, which can make for some interesting playing when you're trying to manoeuvre a mine into a blockage on a jetpack! Throw in co-op play and you've got a pretty rich experience right there!

What really makes LittleBigPlanet unique, however, are the creation tools. Players are given an absolutely huge array of materials and tools to work with. We've seen everything from a working calculator to a level that recreates the Final Fantasy X song 'To Zanarkland' The best thing about all that is that players can upload their creations to the PlayStation Network for all to enjoy, meaning you should never run short of new stuff to play with.

Plus, LittleBigPlanet's so darn cute (and crisp) that it'll make your teeth dissolve just from looking at it!
