A HUGE enjoyable game suitable for the entire family!

LBP2 is a better executed version of LBP1. Everything is better, including it's graphics, levels, and just the overall playing experience. The graphics are sharper and the colors are more vivid. The first game was pretty much just a side scrolling game. And now the second iteration has become a better gaming experence. Some of the improvements include some great cinematics, it really makes you feel like your a part of the game, I get so involved in what I'm playing that sometimes I feel like I'm a little sackboy bouncing around in my own little world, it truely is that enjoyable. Some of the levels are actually a story line that progresses as you play, which helps in getting me so involved in what I'm playing.
There are a ton of minigames that are worth checking out. Some of the minigames in certain levels are designed to be played by two or more players, so you have to work together to get the special prizes at the end. Sometimes this requires both players to cooperate their game play to progress and accomplish a successful level. There are just so many different levels that you can explore, it is truely massive beyond explanation.
If all you do is play the game developer's story line then you will find that it is very simple and generic, but it is still an involved and fun game to play. It also has a few levels excusively for the move controller, but most of them don't require the move controller. However when it is required it brings a new additional element to the game play which draws you into the game further. So again, the move controller is not needed to play this great game it is only needed on some levels. But you are able to choose whether you want to play those levels or not. So if you don't have a move controller, no problem!
LBP2 is not compatable with the PS2, you can buy a PS3 version or a PS4 version. I have only played the PS3 version but I can imagine that the PS4 version has even more intense graphics.
I love being able to create my own levels, that's what got me interested in LBP in the first place. In LBP2, creating levels is the same as in LBP1 but there are a few new tools that make it easier to create these levels. The tutorials for each tool is also more educational than LBP1 and is easier to follow, which also helps make your levels more enjoyable for other players. I believe this easier tutorial has helped in establishing such a huge plethora of player supplied levels.
Through the many hours of game play I have accumulated with this game, I have never ran into any glitches. However, there was one community created level where I got stuck in the game and could not progress or go backwards and had to end the game and restart it.
My favorite part about LBP is exploring all the levels everyone has made. One thing about this game, you will never run out of things to do. There will always be new levels to play, there are literally millions of them. I could play for hours every day for the next 10 years and still only scratch the surface of the levels available. Technically, this is probably the largest game available on any gaming console ever made, and this is because of the player added levels. I just wish the creativity that you find in this game were available in more games. Expecially given the ability to keep on expanding the size of this game through the Playstation community's input.
The special edition version comes with a huge selection of extras like:
* LittleBigPlanet 2 Move Pack: Rise of the Cakeling which is a new story with 14 levels, and allows you to create your own ps move games.
* A huge bonus to this game is that it allows PS Move support so that you can play LBP2 with the move controller
* Disney's Toy Story Level pack that has several levels, including extra costumes, objects/materials for building more expansive levels
* Animal Costume Packs which have several different dog, cat, and other animal costumes to wear.
* Many, Many more costume packs to choose from that range from seasonal characters to all of your favorite movie/cartoon characters
Over all this is a great game to play with the whole family that I recommend to anyone and all age groups.
