This compelling, imaginative adventure is the best LittleBigPlanet yet and breaks new ground in a hybrid space of touch-and-button-based gaming that is only possible on PlayStation Vita.
- Exceptional platforming and level design, augmented by clever new mechanics
- An empowering suite of creation tools that take full advantage of PS Vita's unique features
- Bridges the gap between console-quality gaming and mobile accessibility
- The rare inconsistency with touch response
- No support for user-made levels from previous installments
(continued from previous page) ...paint the future of portable gaming with finger swipes and photographs? The answer isn't clear, but the end result is. LittleBigPlanet PS Vita is magnificent fun, a remarkable display of innovation that is only possible on PlayStation Vita, and the very best reason to own one.

Looks like you tried to knock the game judging by the two dislikes. "Rare inconsistency"? "No support for user-made levels from previous installments"? You act like the same studio made every single game and as such everything should be compatible. This is clearly not the case, but shows how much is known about the game(s). Guess LittleBigPlanet can't do that well in PSU's book. Ah well, still going to be one of the greater Vita games to release. Heck, somehow even the original LBP only deserved a 95 to them, if that helps make the connection.

I try not to comment on comments, but "Presidents" that is just plain funny. LBP "can't do well in PSU's book"? Give me a break! Go troll another site. How in anyone's mind a 9.5 is not doing "well" is beyond my imagination. This is one of the most glowing reviews PSU has ever given any game and the author's two minor, minor, minor dislikes (which, by the way, don't take points away!) is just that, something he didn't like and felt worth pointing out to would-be buyers.

Good review! I really can't wait for this game. Seems like you enjoyed this game, and so will I. Been looking forward to this game since I bought my Vita! I also agree with #2 this is like the best review score PSU has given any game that I can remember, and the game deserves it and it delivers a game like LBP2 and more! But I also disagree with #2 bout the first comment because...
"No support for user-made levels from previous installments" shouldn't really be a negative, I played the LBP Vita beta, and the size where you can actually build your levels in is slightly smaller to allow the game to run so smoothly on the Vita. So its impossible for the Vita to run previous LBP levels and the fact its running on a different engine and made by a different team.
But in saying that! Its fair enough to dislike it as it would of been awesome if they where able to transfer the levels over, it should just be noted in the review, that it would be impossible for that to happen because the Vita isn't as powerful as the PS3 but is still able to produce a game that rivals or even in some cases surpass LBP2.

I never understand why, if the dislikes provided never subtract from a score, they never really explain what does. I figured the whole point of the "Like/dislike" section was a TL

So picking this up!
i personally would've thought 9.3 or something. 9.5 is impressive for a handheld XD
time to gear up my creativity cap!

@Presidents (Comment 1)
So, you do know that a score of 10 means "PERFECT" - this game is not quite perfect, in fact, it's very hard to have a truly perfect game, what on earth is wrong with a 9.5?? That's basically perfect with a few tiny things wrong with it, for real, you're probably the type that thinks a 7.5 is a horrible game.

@4 It's not so exact as Likes adding points, Dislikes subtracting points. Really, the score is something decided completely independent of those bulletpoints. It's all about the game makes me feel - is it a truly phenomenal, genre-defining classic that will be remembered as one of the best games of the generation? Then it's probably a 10. Is it just totally awesome and a game you'll absolutely love? Maybe more of a 9.5.
I view the Likes and Dislikes as a way to summarize, at a glance, my main feelings about the game. The best glimpse always comes from reading the review, though. Thanks for your input!

How can you go wrong with LBP? I pre-ordered the game and can't wait to play it! Viva vita!
