Join Sackboy in a completely new adventure - filled with new abilities, new game play rules, innovative tools and a smarter LBP Network, evolving the Play, Create, Share experience.
LittleBigPlanet 2 (LBP2) is a puzzle-platforming game for PlayStation 3 with new built-in functionality allowing players to create advanced content, including full-fledged games of all sorts, which can be shared with others within the LittleBigPlanet online network. The third game in the LittleBigPlanet franchise, the toolset within LittleBigPlanet 2 provides players with the ability to easily change the mapping of objects in-game, add abilities and non-player AI characters, create cutscenes, link levels and more. Additional features include backwards compatibility with content created with the original LittleBigPlanet game, a 50 level deep Story Mode and all new platforming gadgets.
A Whole New LittleBigPlanet Adventure
Join Sackboy in a completely new platforming adventure, spread across 50 levels.
Some time has passed since the events of the original game and its PSP sequel and Craftworld is in trouble. An evil device, force, thingy known as "The Negativitron" is threatening to suck up everyone and everything, including Sackboy, into the void. Only an intervention by a rebel organization known as "The Alliance" saves our hero. And with that Sackboy decides to lend his creative platforming powers to the cause. Along the way he'll discover new abilities, gadgets, gameplay rules and innovative tools to get the job done.
A Platform for Games
LittleBigPlanet 2 is about more than a game storyline. It is about player creativity. Loaded with a powerful new set of tools that vastly widen the scope of possibilities in-game, LittleBigPlanet 2 moves far beyond familiar level editing and delivers the power to literally create whole games. It is in fact, a platform for games. Whether you are talking racing games, mini-games, action/adventure games and even multiplayer shooters, using the Direct Control feature you can create/recreate a mapping for objects and abilities from the Sixaxis controller for use directly in gameplay. You can also link levels to extend the fun and/or create a new gameplay experience. Bring your characters to life, compose your own music, direct cinematic masterpieces, wire controllers directly in to your contraptions, connect easy to use switches, microchips and circuit boards to build epic bosses, vehicles, machines, and puzzles. All the tools are at your fingertips. And with custom heads-up displays (HUDs) for scoring and game data exported to a game ending grid, allowing winners in created multiplayer games to celebrate while opponents look on in shame, the sky is truly the limit.
Play, Create and Discover
LittleBigPlanet 2 is fully backwards compatible to the original game. With millions of creations existing in the LittleBigPlanet universe and millions more to come, finding the experience you're looking for is important. With that in mind the developers of LittleBigPlanet 2 have expanded Share functionality to enhance the player's ability to discover exactly what you want to find. In addition, the searching system has been given a total overhaul, and Activity Stream functionality has been added so you can follow your friends and hearted creators, helping you discover the top notch playable bits that they have brought to life. In addition, a new web portal gives every single LBP creation its own home on the web, with a page for every creator and every level. Browse creations online to find fab levels, add them to your queue to play later on, check photos, comments, leaderboards, create and share playlists, and easily promote your levels and games wherever you might hang out online.

The levels in LBP 2 are even more creative than the first one (if that's even possible), the graphics are more polished (if it matters), and load screens don't seem to take as long. The create mode is a thousand times easy than the first time (very user-friendly). Create mode is easier in the sense that all of the tutorials are right in front of you and you don't have to try everything on your popit in order to see them all. ALSO maybe my favorite improvement is that when you go to create and enemy (using the brain) they are just mindless going back and forth, they actually do what you would expect an enemy to do.
The online system is also amazing. The internet style level search bar looks like it will make finding levels you want to play a breeze (since nobody has really made any levels yet, I have not had the pleasure to use it yet).
When it comes to cons there really aren't any that I can speak of. Graphics are clean, gameplay is funner than ever, load screens are bearable, and sackboy is still cute as hell.
So overall I would give this game 10/5 stars, but since they won't let me I'll just have to give it 5. I know what I'm doing in my free time this week =]
After playing the original Little Big Planet and enjoying it, I figured at such a cheap price I couldn't go wrong buying it. To start, this game required at least an hours worth of updates before you actually get to play. Just install the updates, get it over with and you're good to go.
If you have a LBP1 profile you can import your character, levels, and DLC to LBP2. If you liked the original there's a good chance you'll enjoy this game as well. It's the same concept, now with more features. This game is an improvement in most ways that I can think of over the original
I give it four stars because I prefer the created level search format of the original game (personal preference), I also don't like how on the "shark survival" levels the camera goes crazy shaking and zooming in on the sharks / monsters when they get close to you. That didn't happen in the original and it puts a damper on the game mode for me.. The story is okay, I wasn't particularly interested and skipped most of the cut scenes out of boredom and impatience. I give it high marks for creativity, though. Other than that, I like the game.
My 4 year old nephew loves the game, he's not the best at it but we can get through levels together, sometimes it takes a few tries and I have to help him. I think the game is meant for someone a little bit older, maybe 7-8 or 10 years old to be safe. You do have to read sometimes and it helps to have grasp on the concept of the game requiring problem solving skills.
The storyline has the same amount of charm as the first one while gameplay remains relatively the same. Even better is that all the user created content and DLC from LBP1 will work with LBP2.
A must buy for any fans of games.
