The LittleBigPlanet universe enters the kart racing genre with some style. Great art style, impressive track design, competitive racing and infinite replay value.

We like

  • Striking art design that LBP fans will appreciate, as well as a stunning soundtrack.
  • Collecting stuff is as addictive as ever and the races are ultra-competitive and fun thanks to some excellent power-ups and level design.
  • Tons of customisation thanks to a great tool-set and great tutorials to help out. You're only limited by your imagination.

We dislike

  • Long loading times prior to each race can get a little irritating.
  • Races can feel a little slow compared to karting greats, such as Mario Kart

When that spinning turtle shell, or any other race-wrecking pow...
