LittleBigPlanet PS Vita is a must-have for early adopters of Sony's latest handheld game system. It puts the device's multifaceted interface to terrific effect, making smart and sparing use of the system's motion and touch controls. For example, you can touch the rear touch pad to push objects in the background forward, creating new platforms and grappling hook latching points, and use the touch screen to throw switches and play musical instruments found in the environment. Some mini-games even have players turn the Vita on its end and use the right thumb stick and action buttons in a fashion akin to an old arcade machine.

But, as with previous LittleBigPlanet games, the Vita edition shines brightest in its creator mode and online community. This game gives players an authentic taste of what game design is like. It's an outlet for ambitious and inventive kids, and a place where they can connect and share the things they make with like-minded people. Few games act as a platform for such satisfying creativity.
