Memorable quotes

What’s more, it sees the pariah of this generation, Sony, publishing at the height of its powers. Not since the early days of PlayStation has that troubled brand stood for – and fostered – such a daring, transcendent, magnificent piece of work. 10/10.

– Edge

LittleBigPlanet is perhaps one of the most dazzling demos I've seen in the last 10 years.

– BBC

If you really need comparisons, the game is like Line Rider meets Garry's Mod meets Super Mario Bros. meets an orgasm.

– Kotaku

LittleBigPlanet is the epitome of imagination

– IGN

Easily the best PlayStation 3 game that Sony has ever shown off

– Wired

This is the reason to buy PlayStation 3.

– Slashdot
