    The fun is still there, but poor online co-op

    As with the previous Little Big Planet games, there is no lack of creativity, and fun. The levels go from simple, to challenging, but nothing impossible for a solid gamer. There are some negatives though, and they are pretty major, if you plan to play co-op online. The game has some real issues keeping things synchronized between players. Many times, my friend would appear 'floating', where he was clearly in a different location, on his screen. To top it off, it would move my character, when it sync'd with my friend, resulting in some very unpredictable movement. Additionally, the camera movement was terrible, and often followed the player that was behind, and would kill the person who was ahead. This often wouldn't be a big deal, since it essentially punishes someone for running to far ahead. The problem is, some of the checkpoints are poorly placed, and if a player dies, they will get respawned WAY behind the surviving player. Often, it made it impossible to meet up again, and we'd burn up all the extra lives, just to make the camera start following the surviving player. Overall, if you want this for single player, or local multiplayer, then I still suggest buying it, because it's a really fun/creative game, that makes you think a bit more than the generic button masher game. If you want to play online, I caution buying it, unless you are willing to accept laggy gameplay.

    Another great addition to LBP

    It's a fun game, this time made by a different developer so it lacks a bit of the charm of the first two. Where it takes a slight dip in charm and level design in my opinion, it makes up for it with better controls (jumping precision and level creator tools) and other controllable characters with new abilities. For the cons: load times are rough. And I ran into a glitch maybe where I wasn't able to import all of my purchased content from LBP 1 & 2. The store actually wanted me to but it again for LBP 3 even though it says it's compatible with all 3 versions. Even with those issues it's still a fun time and even more fun with friends. The online community is great but your mileage may vary. There's an endless number of player created levels there from all three games so you'll never run out of content to explore.

    Rated E for EVERYBODY

    Played this game for about 3 hours now. I'm 24 and wanted to finally play this playstation only game since I have been a Xbox guy before this. Now that I have a PS4 I figured I'd give it a try while it was on sale. I'm more of a Adventure/Sports/RPG player but this game is pretty fun, I get that it is wildly considered a kids game but for just sitting back on a day with nothing to do or wanting to kill some time, it's mind numbing and great. Awesome graphics, Patrick Stewart is a great voice for the game. Only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is for no ability to change the difficulty which I can see being hard for this type of game and wish it was a tad more challenging but obviously it's a game kids have to enjoy as well. Fun buy.

    This is a very solid title, though it's not quite as good as LBP2. The game has some game-breaking bugs in it, that will occasionally require you to completely restart certain levels or even the game. The new characters are a lot of fun to play with and each bring something new to the table, however some are more useful than others and Sackboy has no new powers to compensate. Overall, the level design is decent but it doesn't have that magical feeling that previous installments did. Community levels are backwards compatible, which is fantastic. The story and new levels still fall short of what previous installments have offered and I would not recommend you purchase this game, unless you're new to LBP in general.

    Great platformer for PS4

    I bought this because I had played and enjoyed the previous versions of this game on the PS3 and I wanted a nice platformer to give me something to play when I needed a break from GTA or some FPS games. This was an excellent choice for that. The graphics look great and the game runs smoothly. It's also fun to be able to play levels with someone online. There's a lot of great levels with little puzzles and secrets to find. Lots of replay value because there's so many things to collect, plus all the online levels and the creator features. Also at this point the game is well priced and makes a great addition to any library.

    I was extremely concerned when I first heard media molecule wasn't working on this one as they developed the first two but sumo digital didn't fail me on this game. Still has all the enjoyment of the original with the added characters and mechanics that they each have and cool new tools that you can use at any time instead of having to pick up like the paint guns or jetpacks in the first two games. As always, significantly more fun with more people, but I enjoyed this game going through it by myself just the same. Tons of great user created levels as well and all of the user levels from 1 and 2 are accessible in this one.

    A sequel that I didn't have to think about buying

    It can be hard to get use to the PS4 controls for the older crowd (talking 50+), but once down, it is very fun. This game style is so refreshing from all the first person shooters and violent game content. The story line and approach are very unique and keeps the interest level for all ages. My daughter enjoys the game and plays online with boyfriend. Having the book, as with most games today, makes a large difference in hitting all the highlights of the game. While not necessary to enjoy the game, if you want to "complete" the game, it would be very hard without the book.

    I bought this game because it looked like a fun multi-player game for my children. I wanted something that they could work together on, instead of competing. They play great together, but sometimes one player tries to go ahead and collect the stickers and bubbles before the other players. I think that there should be something in the game that blocks players from getting too far ahead, instead of the threat of the player dieing. We had the first version of this game and this one is even more addictive.
