1. GAME: Littlebigplanet karting (PS3)
“If you dream it, you can race it,” boasts the tagline, and so it proves. Let your imagination run wild as you build and create your own races and adventures in this karting spin-off from the LittleBigPlanet franchise. Available on PS3, the detail on the characters (Sackboy, Sackgirl and the rest), vehicles and background is astonishing, as is the need to keep on playing. Too addictive, too lovingly rendered and too clever to be dismissed as mere ‘fun’. Fast, furious and frenetic, this is an example of truly great gaming.
