I downloaded the beta yesterday and have played it for about an hour in total, I've raced on every track available and done a few of the mini games, I am happy to say it's not terrible. I was very afraid it was going to be bad, you see the worst part about the Little Big Planet games is I don't think they play well. Sure they have a great soundtrack and art style, there "Design your own characters/levels is neat too, but the games were never fun to play. This time around they keep all of that but the game is fun to play, it is very Mario Kart but thats a good thing I suppose. When you drift you get boost, if you get a green rocket it will fire in a straight line and a red rocket will home in on the enemy in front of you etc. I think its a cool game and can't wait to get to play the real game when it comes out.
Anybody else have any impressions?
