Our videos of LBP karting

LittleBigPlanet Karting was the promise of the perfect combination between ModNation Racers and the LittleBigPlanet franchise. Released this week, the game fails to deliver the amount of fun people have come to expect from a Mario Kart-like, mainly because of a lack of balance between the different power-ups and also a clear lack of speed. The creation tool is still very promising as we can count on the community to bring new content in the months to come, but will it be enough to keep players interested in the long run? In the end, the game seems pretty average, which is quite disappointing considering how great it could have been. Frustrating when playing solo (AI will give you a hard time shooting you down repeatedly, making victory rely on chance mostly), United Nation Games' title is clearly destined to multiplayer mayhem.

Diddy Kong Racing & Crash Team Racing not only matched, but evolved and bested Mario Kart in many ways at the time. (MK64)

But that doesn't mean it will sell.

No way did those games you mention best Mario Kart on the SNES. No karting game has even come close to the sheer playability of the Super Nintendo game.

As for LBP Karting...what a waste considering how good LBP platform games were! :(

Yeah, don't know why devs wasted their time on this. Can't see this selling good.

Loved LBP 1 and 2 btw.

Looks decent.

Mario karts are great games, but i've been impressed with sonic all stars racing, and the new one evolved looks to better all other racers imo.

From land/sea/air.

Except crash team racing which is still the kart racer to beat. Nothing seems to come close though.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The 360 was great though.. but I even if Spencer is comparing XB1's performance to the 360's... that seems like yuge spin when you compare it to the PS4. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Some of those games are not Xbox exclusives. (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @MikeManiac61: Hold on, no memorable games? Halo 3, Reach and 4?,Gears 1-3? Forza Motorsport and Horizon? Lost odyssey? Condemned? Crackdown? Alan Wake? Come on now :) (5 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the first game reminds me a lot of the souls series. doing dungeons/bosses in different orders, cryptic messages and hard to find areas. (5 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth Legend of Zelda done, now on to Link to the Past. (5 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: That's true. I can't remember any memorable IP's from the 360 days lol. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The success of the 360 had *a lot* to do with it being the best multiplatform console. There may be a diminishing returns thing there though... we'll see. (6 Hours ago)
