The Little Big Planet demo is a hefty 917MB, but features a small selection of levels from the game and community database, along with a handful of creation tools to test out.
The game revolves around the player’s control of a small character, known as a Sackboy or Sackgirl owing to their appearance, in a variety of platforming scenarios. Though the game features a set of pre-built levels for the player to explore, the game’s customisable nature is equally important, from altering the player’s character and personal space, to building entirely new objects and levels, and then sharing and playing them online as part of the LittleBigPlanet community.
Whilst the creativity nature is appealing to many gamers, it is possible that those who have never seen or experienced the title may consider it an embarrassing or childish purchase; especially if you’re a single guy in his mid thirties!
Why not beat your curiosity and try the demo, you can always make it an online purchase - no one need ever know!
