I got the go-ahead to download Kodu Game Lab last week and was hopeful that it’d be another outlet for my creative juices but it’s turned out to be more of a sieve, holding those juices back. Check out the full “review” at NfamousGamers.
I know it’s not quite fair to compare Kodu Game Lab to LittleBigPlanet. Media Molecule has had years to work on LittleBigPlanet and millions to back it up while Kodu was produced at Microsoft as an XNA Community Games release by a team of only six on an undisclosed budget. But at the most basic level the two strive for the same thing, to empower players to create games of their own, and in that respect Kodu has more potential than LittleBigPlanet, but its presentation and approachability are what are currently keeping it down.
