Sackboy: Big Adventure Review ( Ideal For PS5)
Sackboy: Big Adventure is a beautiful platform adventure that is ideal for any PS5 beginner looking for a fun collaborative game to play.
In 2008, Media Molecule and Sony launched the ambitious platform game Little Big Planet, which provided players with a wide range of tools that they could use to create their own gaming experiences. Little Big Planet was a huge success, selling millions of copies when it was released and receiving worldwide acclaim.
The success of LittleBigPlanet has created a whole new tentpole franchise for Sony, with numerous LBP sequels and spin-offs. PS5 Launch Title Sackboy: A Big Adventure is the latest Little Big Planet spin-off game, and it happens to be one of the better ones.
While major Little Big Planet games place a high priority on user-generated content, Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a more traditional platform. Inspired by titles such as Super Mario 3D World, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, the four players complete a variety of platform challenges in themed-worlds with their own gimmicks and aesthetics.
The more fascinating aspect of Little Big Planet games is the art style, and how game worlds are always made with real-world objects. Sackboy: A big adventure that takes that design sensibility along with players, created from paper over everyday household items in the world. There are cute little touches everywhere like making water with blue glitter and it takes some part of the fun in these scenes.
Sackboy: Most of the levels in A Big Adventure are traditional platform charges, players jumping over enemies, solving some small puzzles and completing time-lapse challenges. Jumping is great and exploring levels is a lot of fun, though it’s pretty much a ho-hum experience for the game. Sackboy: The biggest problem with a big adventure is that it is so simple, there is no tension that is commonly found in other platform titles.
Sackboy: Big Adventure may not be the most exciting or serious platform game on the market, but it has a lot of variety to combine things from one stage to another. Throughout the game, Sackboy and his friends gain access to specialized gadgets such as boomerangs and grappling hooks, which lend themselves well to puzzles and platform challenges. Similar new mechanics are introduced regularly to ensure that the sackboy is not old.
Although there are tons of variations on Sackboy’s platform game play, there is nothing new in dealing with the enemy. From the beginning of the game to the end players constantly face the same enemy types and this also extends to boss fights. Players must repeat the same boss fight with Sackboy villain Vex multiple times throughout the game, with slight variation in each encounter.
Playing Sackboy: A big adventure with friends can help keep any potential tedium at bay, though the game’s contribution comes with its own warnings that potential buyers should keep in mind. SACK BOY: The collaboration of a Big Adventure with two players can be experienced differently for a maximum of four, as things can become very confusing.
When four people are playing at once the camera is struggling to perform all the actions correctly, and it is very easy to get to each other. Sackboy players inadvertently jump on each other’s heads, send their partners to their deaths, or accidentally grab and hook each other.
Going through sackboy with another person is the most flexible way to experience the game, as it minimizes the frustrating aspects of cooperation while highlighting its benefits. Playing Sackboy: A great adventure in collaboration to explore the world of the game opens the door to all sorts of new avenues, mainly where players can throw themselves into high, inaccessible places. Not only that, there are some steps that require two players in each world.
When launched, Sackboy: A Big Adventure Co-op was limited to locals only. Sackboy: An online multiplayer of Big Adventure is coming up in an update that is in the works later this year, but this means that if you do not have someone to play with players and have an additional dual-sensor controller, they will effectively lock out some of the game’s content. This is unfortunate, but it is a problem that needs to be solved rather quickly than later.
Sackboy: A Big Adventure PS5 makes good use of dual controller control, taking full advantage of its haptic feedback and custom triggers. The collection makes good use of the dual Sense controller’s speaker, which is a satisfying bell when picking up collections or a hilarious dramatic shout when a sackboy falls into a pit.
Anyone who can get their hands on the PlayStation 5 should definitely take the PS5 version of the Sackboy over its PS4 counter, as it adds a large amount of dual sense controller experience.
Regardless of any version of Sackboy: Choose a Big Adventure Player, they have some content to look forward to. It takes about 8-10 hours to reach and defeat the final owner, but there are many secret levels to be found, time attempts to complete, trophies to unlock and tons of cosmetics, even in the typical Little Big Planet fashion.
Each stage is packed with collectible costume pieces that players can use to fully customize their sackboy, not to mention some that can be purchased from the in-game store. Players are free to combine and match cosmetics in the game, including emotes.
Sackboy: Emotes are useful at the end of levels because the game zooms in on players and gives them time to celebrate their victory. The player with the best performance is given a trophy and their picture is taken, although the other player has the opportunity to smack the trophy out of their hands.
It can be fun at first, but by the end of the game, sackboy players want to skip this end-level score counting and celebration altogether so they can get to the next level as fast as possible. There is a fast forward option, but it still takes some time.
Nit picks aside, we’ll be at a loss if we do not mention the best level genres of Sackboy: A Big Adventure and they are steps set to licensed music. The songs include hits such as Bruno Mars ‘”Uptown Funk” and Britney Spears’ “Toxic”, which move in a deliberate way as enemies strike music and highlight lyrics.
Along with gimmicks like the grappling hook and the boomerang, these musical levels go a long way in determining the sackboy: there are varieties in A Big Adventure and never boring.
Sackboy: A big adventure for fans of the platform genre or anyone looking for a collaborative game to play on their new PS5 console. While the perfect little Big Planet 4 is happy to come to Sony’s next generation system, fans can look forward to future Sackboy platform adventures.
