My daughter has been addicted to Little Big Planet for a couple of years, and when she saw the commercials for the LBP Karting game, she absolutely had to have it. I was skeptical, because she had never shown an interest in racing games before. Even Mario Kart could not hold her interest. However, when Christmas rolled around, somehow this LBP Karting game made it under the tree. My trepidations were short lived because she ended up enjoying this game as much as she does the standard LPB video game. The karts can be customized, which she loves, and the racing tracks can be customized as well. Because it is a multi gamer community, players can join with each other in playing on standard tracks or ones that have been made by their fellow gamers. There is also the option to race against someone at home on a split screen, which makes for fun family game nights. I definitely recommend this game to anyone who has kids that either love Little Big Planet, love video racing games, or both. Since it is an online game, be aware that there is the opportunity for your child to interact with other players online. That is the only reason I gave this four instead of five stars.
