    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.

    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.

    I loved the First LittleBigPlanet it was such a cool game that was very enjoyable to play co-op with a friend. Then the second game came, and it was a blast to the past. This new game is done with the same art style and flare as the first two games. The difference is that this is quite a bit harder, the unique weapons can make it a bit confusing since you aren't told up front that you will have to re-visit levels later on to completely 100% the game. Still a fun and challenging game well worth playing.

    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.

    This game would easily be 5 out of 5 if it wasn't for the problems I've had. We our progress saved to my wife's account. After about the 4th time we booted it up to play, she couldn't access any of her stickers, costumes, clothes etc, but I could still access mine (I'm player 2, the secondary player). We went went to the map to select levels, it shows that we've completed 0% on everything, but it shows that we've done a majority of the levels. It's glitches pretty badly and hasn't fixed itself yet. Other than that, the game looks beautiful and it's loads and loads of fun!! I definitely recommend it!!

    LittleBigPlanet 3 (or LBP3) is a great 4 local player co-op game. It also has competitive minigames to help break up the friendliness of the whole experience. The campaign is simple enough to finish but will require trial-and-error (and patience) to get 100%. Once that is done you can hop online with friends, strangers from around the world, or keep it solo in the literally millions of user-made levels. The only problem with this game, is that it has a few bugs, while most have been worked out, dont be surprised if the game tweaks out now and then.

    Fun two player game - challenging at the end

    I bought this game so that my 5 year old and I can play a game. Not many PS4 games are aimed at my son's age and at 8+ (common sense media rating) this still isn't ranked his age but it is by far one of the few games that are remotely near his age range. After a few weeks, we are just about to finish the main campaign. The game is easy enough for my son to play along and challenging enough for me to be entertained. (The last level and boss is a bit challenging for the both of us.) I value the teamwork and problem solving we have to engage in order to play this game together.

    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.

    I've played both Little Big Planet games for the PS3 and even the PS Vita Edition, which I have all enjoy the series. With Little Big Planet 3, its more of the same goofy fun that is suitable for the whole family, from the youngest of the bunch to even the oldest member of the family. Even making your own levels and sharing them with the rest of the world is both fun and a little time consuming. It is quite interesting to play other people's created levels, which just goes to show that user created content can just be as creative as game developers content.

    This game is no doubt in my top three list of the best games ever, just one little downside. This is in no way anyone of the game creators' fault; you cannot play this game if you live out in the country UNLESS you have flawless internet. My boyfriend and I each bought a copy to play while we are away from each other to work as a team to beat the game..he lives in a subdivision so it's perfect for him, I am the opposite. Long story short, if you have Rise Broadband as an interest provider, you can forget playing this game.

    Fun Game... Too many loading screens

    I used to love the original so I was excited about the new game. I was extremely disappointed in the amount of loading screens. They all go on for a minimum of 30s and due to the complete customization of characters it can take even longer. I would be fine with it being on every level but its several times within one level. I would have thought this would have improved over the years. But the game is still lots of fun if your in the mood to wait a lot inbetween. I love the opportunity of playing with other characters. Overall disappointed!!

    This game is challenging but very fun. We especially liked all the achievements we have to unlock which allows us to keep playing the game after completing all of the levels. One issue we had was there were a couple glitches in a one or two of the levels that forced us to restart the level, but that wasn't a huge problem because the game is just that fun. I would recommend this game to anyone who likes challenging and fast paced games. It is fun playing in multi player mode because passing the levels turns into a team effort.

    This is the first Little Big Planet game I've owned and it's SO much fun. I haven't ventured out of the adventure mode yet, but it's a blast to play with friends. Only gripe I have (and it seems like it's a problem a lot of people have at one point or another), is that the game corrupts easily. I got to the second to last level and was helping my roommate catch up and I clicked X to skip the intro and it ruined my file. It's not a super hard game, so it's not a huge deal, but it's definitely a problem they need to fix.

    Good, Not Great

    Little Big Planet 1 and 2 were developed by Media Molecule, and were masterfully crafted, implementing excellent game design with charm, wit, and fun. Little Big Planet 3, however, was made by Sumo Digital. While LBP3 tries to capture the magic of the first two games, and largely succeeds, it is impossible to ignore the long load times, bugs, and crashes. The story and characters are great, as well as the innovations of adding more planes to stages, but it falls short of what Media Molecule started.

    While the main story as usual is great, and the characters are interesting, there just isn't enough going on in the main story line. Seems most of the time will bespent working on your own worlds, or that of online players, when you're done with the main game. My son has played all three games and he was done with this one a lot faster than all the rest. Nice game regardless and I'd say for children 7 and up (if they're playing alone that is) who have played similar games before.

    I am 27 years old and I enjoyed the story mode very much. However it seems to me, much like most modern games the story mode is only 10% of the game. They concentrate on creating levels and replaying levels for 100% completion. None of it interested me so I did not get the full value and nor will anyone else just interested in a long plat-former. However, if you enjoy the all the extras included in the past, you will definitely enjoy this game and the addition of new characters.
