The first thing we thought when we heard ModNation Racers would have LittleBigPlanet levels of customisation was 'Oh shit'. Not that we doubted the quality of creation tools involved, it's more to do with the fact that you need a degree in engineering to build a semi-decent stage in the Sackboy world.
