We are already entering a new generation of consoles, which comes with great launch titles, technical details and other aspects, but it was announced out of nowhere ‘Sackboy: A big adventure’, a title that after having played it, surprises a lot, and without making noise. But before starting your analysis, it must be clarified that this installment is not an exclusive title for PlayStation 5, but can also be enjoyed on PlayStation 4, just like the standard version of ‘Spider-Man: Miles Morales’.
ONCE UPON A TIME
However, ‘Sackboy: A big adventure’ is not a ‘LittleBigPlanet’. The title created by the study Media Molecule He was very ambitious and had a very large creative component, outside of jumping, solving puzzles (‘puzzles’) or generate a large community, while the new Sumo Digital It is not this, but a platform title, neither more nor less. That’s right, an excellent platform title, which although it does not invent anything, what it presents does so in a big way and notably improving those subtle details where it failed ‘LittleBigPlanet’, such as the precision of the controls.
The plot that presents us ‘Sackboy: A big adventure’ it is not his strong point. although it is not weak either. What’s more, you can play the levels without further explanation and everything would have worked the same way, but the developer Sumo Digital used a series of characters to create a story, which also makes use of an interesting handling of dialogues … and jokes. Outside of this, the world of ‘Sackboy’ and his friends was quiet until he appears ‘Vex’, the villain on duty who seeks to destroy everything. And there, assuming the role of the charismatic character, we set out to ruin their plans. Nothing new, except the characters that will guide us on our adventure, funny and that will make everyone’s journey happy.
Where the game excels is in the handling of its mechanics, since jumping, hitting, and being able to use various objects is very entertaining, even if they are the basic actions. Outside of this, little by little we can make use of weapons and other objects, but like the franchise, basically everything focuses on collecting the maximum number of orbs in each level. We are sure that the PlayStation 5 version will have made the most of the new control and functions of the ‘DualSense’, since in our case we have analyzed the version for PlayStation 4.
Another interesting detail is the game camera, which is not free. We will not be able to move it to our liking, but they are true, it is not necessary at all, since Sumo Digital’s work is very good and precise in this aspect.
Now, the fact that we are talking about a platform title with a childish appearance does not mean that it is easy or simple, because as we progress in levels, the difficulty will increase without reaching impossible levels, of course. And it is that the level design complies and very well, starting from a few simple ones until reaching authentic crazy things that more than one will seek to repeat and replay over and over again, with the aforementioned orbs to collect, in addition to a special type of currency that It will be used to buy costumes and other cosmetic objects and some blue orbs that will allow you to unlock levels.
‘Sackboy: A big adventure’ It is a title that we can play alone or in the company of three other players. The online mode will come later. Detail aside, there are specific levels that we can only complete with other players. It is not that they are complicated, but that they cannot be played if we play alone. And as a bonus to the levels, which have an artistic section which is wonderful thanks to its color palette, there are some of them that when we play them we will listen to musical themes from well-known artists.
Now to finish this analysis, I must say that ‘Sackboy: A big adventure’ is a title that many overlooked and that they did not have on their radar, but it is undoubtedly a great video game. It promises two very clear things, platform game and fun, and it delivers. If you like this genre, you can’t miss it, and if you have children at home, even better, it is a perfect option to hang out with your family.
