With its great art and challenging scenarios, it was a joy to play Little Big Workshop. Although I hope they introduce a sandbox mode with your own criteria set, it took nothing away from the enjoyment I had the original story line. A must have if you are into you management sims.

Little Big Workshop is exactly what it says on the tin, a big sandbox experience set within a small table-top workshop. Although you can play the game casually, the fun begins when you get in-depth and begin to micro-manage and oversee all of the various jobs either by getting hands-on or automating the production line to the highest efficiency possible. I do feel there are a few mechanics, options, and features missing, which would open the game up to more casual and less-skilled gamers, but those who love to get their hands dirty will love the number of things you can manually manage.

Little Big Workshop is an adorable slice of capitalism and taking over the market one quality product at a time, provided that you're willing to work for that dream. Batteries not included in dreams of wild success.

The characters and the overall art style are cutesy, sure. But that shouldn't deter you from the solid build-em-up that's underneath it all. A great game to get into the resource strategy genre with, and just as good for those that are au fait with the genre already.

Little Big Workshop is a factory simulator built for the masses. It gets the little details right while setting up big goals for those new to the genre, even if the little workers can cause headaches at times.

Fans of management simulation games will likely enjoy their time in Little Big Workshop. It’s got a charming art style and gives you plenty to do as you work to make your shop the market leader. The stability issues that I encountered do need to be patched by Mirage Game Studios though. Outside of that, their first game has set up shop on consoles rather well.

Little Big Workshop is an enjoyable entry in the management sim game. It features cute diorama style visuals, but has surprisingly deep systems to tinker with that will keep you focused and strategising for the best way to grow your factory.

Little Big Workshop is stuck in the middle, it is a good factory simulator, but it has some lack of depth.

Overall it's a relaxing play for people who enjoy the genre, outside of that it might be a little too scary for some people unfamiliar with this type of sim game, especially with all the number crunching. Aesthetically it's very pleasing and even the little workers are fun to watch. If you have a head for numbers or just want to try out a sim game I'd recommend it.

Little Big Workshop's biggest flaws are its generic character designs and a few control issues, but these are greatly overshadowed by how fun this is.

Still, the state of the game at launch remains inexcusable, and even after several patches, some major issues continue to plague the game's complex mechanics. If you have picked up Little Big Workshop right after release and got turned down by the technical issues, then wait for a few more patches and give it another chance. If you're considering the game, wait for a discount since Little Big Workshop might be fixed by then.
