After watching a bunch of video reviews of LBP karting, I just can't bring myself to pull the trigger. Freezes, so-so gameplay, poor online multiplayer integration, poor create mode tutorial, still lack of cross-DLC costume inclusion, and that it dropped 75% in 2 months makes me think its going to get dropped like Modnation racers. Or are ALL the reviews just overly critical?
I found a lot of the negative reviews (especially IGN's) seemed to focus their criticisms on the fact that LBPK was not very similar to ModNation Racers, which the reviewer must have really enjoyed.
Ironically, that is what sold me on LBPK. I really didn't enjoy ModNation at all, so hearing that LBPK was pretty different from it was a huge plus for me. In just playing the LBPK demo, the game felt a lot better to me than ModNation ever did. The sizable story mode sealed the deal on me buying LBPK last night.
