As you can see from my star rating, I do beleive this is a good game, its nice, has all the charm of the ps3 vertion and you now have the privelidge to create on the go.
Little big planet is a fantastic game to have. you can download levels from online and play them later, without worrying about what will happen to what you are playing if you turn it off. This also means that you have an unlimited supply of free content from the levels and there are a lot downloadables on the playstation store for free, but some have a price tag.
The only downside to this game is that it will not have that same "revolution" in gameplay anymore, and the game will lose that sticky charm pretty quickly, as there are other play create share games out there.
If your gift recipient or indeed yourself is unfimiliar to the little big planet sereis, then this is a must buy, but for people who owned the previous, this will eventually get boring, and traded in
