Sony's Sackboy has a triumphant return in the gaming world as its launch has recently garnered a lot of positive reviews. Game buffs and tech geeks have commended "LittleBigPlanet 3's" developer for the game's creativeness shown with the three new plush characters.

The puzzle-platformer video game, released just this week, has already recorded a lot of good reviews from Playstation 4 players. "LittleBigPlanet," a Sony exclusive for Playstation 4 and also works with PS3, features the comeback of its main character, Sackboy. The stitched protagonist came back with three new plush friends.

Sackboy's new player-controlled friends are Oddsock, Toogle, and Swoop. Oddsock, who has wall jumping skills, is the "quick and agile" hero of the franchise's third installment. Toogle, on the other hand, is the adaptable hero than can change from a strongman "Big Toggle" to a light speedster Little Toggle. Lastly, Swoop is the ultra-fast character who can glide and fly through the skies.

LittleBigPlanet 3's developer, Sumo Digital, has also integrated creation tools to the recently released game to make the fun game more accessible as compared to its predecessors. Because of these efforts, Sumo Digital along with Sony has been given two thumbs up by most of gaming and tech websites.

A review said, "Beautiful, creative and filled with knitted joy, LittleBigPlanet 3 does however disappoint in its Adventure mode's comparatively sparse content." The new Playstation 4 game also has "an impressive array of exceptional design tools" that give its players limitless ways of making the game their own.

Sumo Digital and Sony's new game also features the multiplayer modes and new set of character power-ups that made the game more exciting and engrossing at the same time. To date, a lot of reviewers claimed the new puzzle-platformer game is the best among the entire game franchise.

"LittleBigPlanet 3 is a quite major step forward for the series. The wide array of new tools, the removal of limitations and addition of new characters and power-ups will all serve to empower the community to reach new heights."

The game's developer has been vocal about the changes and improvements that they planned to include to the "LittleBigPlanet 3" even during its production stage. With the raves that it has been getting, Sumo Digital was able to pull-off the improvements that they have planned for the well-loved franchise.

"Sumo Digital has made some very sharp revisions and additions that correct some of the series' historic weaknesses, but those all fit into a familiar package." The review also added, "This is the most daring the series has been so far, but it's still very much cut in the cloth of Media Molecule's pre-made pattern."
