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.

Top Customer Reviews
The Sackboy Plushie: For a lot of people, this is possibly the biggest selling points of the collector's edition. Sackboy may just be the most adorable character to come out of the past decade, so having a licensed plushie of him would be, for many, a dream come true. It's disappointing then that the quality of the plushie is rather poor. The plushie looks significantly different than the Amazon image above and the image on the box. Compared to what is displayed, the plushie is a much darker brown, its head has more of a pronounced egg shape, its button eyes are smaller, and it just has an overall "school arts and crafts" vibe about it. I thought perhaps I may have just received a bad one, but I have seen images of others that are just the same poor quality. The image also shows the plushie sitting down which suggests that the legs can swivel or are loose enough pose. However they are stiff and cannot move. All this is upsetting because the Sackboy plushie displayed is clearly an entirely different plushie than the one you get. If your main reason for getting the collector's edition is the plushie, I would suggest possibly passing on it (Or at least look at images of the actual plushie you get to see if the quality is good enough for your liking. I have posted an image here on Amazon.)
The Bookends: Though they (intentionally) have a cardboard look to them, they are made of a stiff material and are sturdy. Each bookend is about 8 inches (20 cm) high and 5 inches (13 cm) wide. There are two cardboard cutouts, one on each bookend (Sackboy holding an arcade cabinet on one, and LBP's Da Vinci surrounded by Sackbots on the other) which add some 3 dimensional pizzazz. Contrary to the plushie, these bookends are pretty nice.
The Costumes/Avatars: For others, this will be the big selling point of the collector's edition. It's probably important to point out again that these are downloadable content costume packs and are NOT on the disc (otherwise meaning your PS3 will need to be hooked up to the internet to acquire them). Inside the game case is a small voucher with the code that you can redeem on the Playstation Network. The Jak & Daxter costumes are only available in the collector's edition of the game, so if you want them, this is the only way to get them. All the costumes are of good quality like the other LBP DLCs available and are definitely the highlight of the collector's edition. LBP costumes on the Playstation Network cost roughly $1-2, so all the costumes make up more the than half the additional cost of the collector's edition which helps justify it. The voucher also lets you redeem 5 avatars which you can display on your PSN ID if you want to show off your adoration for LBP2.
While the plushie is a bit of a letdown, the decent bookends and fun costumes pick up the slack. You would probably spend nearly $20 on the costumes anyway, so if you're interested in them (especially the Jak & Daxter costumes which, again, are only available if you get this edition of the game), you might as well pick up the collector's edition and get everything else.

____ THE GAME ____
Okay Little Big Planet, if you have not played it before, is pretty much a platform'er w/ some adventure and wonderful creativity thrown into it. The game is suitable for all ages and has almost infinite re-playability. When you finish the campaign not only do you have item collecting to do but online user created levels, can create your own levels, dress up your pod, play mini games or redo the campaign with up to 4 people and have a blast just enjoying yourself.
LBP2 made some changes to the formula which I think gave it a much stronger campaign. While the levels early on can be a bit annoying or challenging (due to the grapple gun mechanics) the game as a whole is very polished and boasts a fantastic sound track, some really good and funny voice acting. They implemented a more solid storyline this time and it gives each level a lot more meaning to it. The new versus levels are a lot of fun also with friends.
The online play is extremely fluid, hopping into random games or inviting friends is even easier than the first game. If you loved Little Big Planet this game will easily bring a smile to your face once again. If you loved to create levels in little big planet, LBP2 will blow your mind with what you can do. You can recreate games like pac-man, asteroids, street fighter, even play a game of basketball; the versatility of this game is never ending.
If you never played Little Big Planet but were very curious about it, this is definitely a title worth picking up. Next to the Uncharted series, LBP is easily one of my top titles released on the PS3.
9.7 / 10 ( 97% ... 5 stars ) for the game. There are some minor bugs that aren't game breaking but can cause that happy smile to turn into a frown for a few moments but not enough to hurt this game. I expect many of the little problems to be patched out within a few days as these are just your typical launch bugs
____ COLLECTORS EDITION _____
Now... I am going to review the collectors edition. Essentially, is the CE worth +$20 ? Lets review what you get with the CE first
1. Book/Game ends (60%)
** These actually are much better quality than I expected. They do not feel like cardboard at all but I have a feeling they are probably heavy duty cardboard w/ plaster coating over it. They seem far to light for the material. However, they do work quite well. I have tested it with a bunch of games and they hold just fine. They also do a good job holding a bunch of books; though small books like paperbacks such as Lord of the Rings, The Wheel of Time etc Each end has small rubber/felt feet(4) on it and I think here is the problem with why people are having issues with them. They dont' have enough "grip" to really hold these ends in place. On a smooth surface like my polished PC desk they slide far to easy and a simple bump would cause it to lose its hold on the books. Replacing the little felt feet with solid plastic/rubber would resolve the problem but overall, out of the box - these kinda-sorta work.
2. 5 PSN avatars (50%)
** What can I say, they are PSN premium avatars. Nothing special honestly and they don't even look that good IMO
3. Jax and Daxter exclusive costumes (100%)
** These are exclusive to the CE. The costumes look fantastic in 720p with high detail put into them.
4. 11 DLC costumes (100%)
** Who doesn't want more costumes! Depending on pricing when the hit official DLC it can be $6-$11 in savings (technically since you are paying $20 more for the CE)
5. LBP2 game disk (100%)
** Of course you get the game silly! At least you better have a game in the box ^_^
6. 7" Plushie (collectible) (50%)
** If you don't already own a sackboy / sackgirl plushie then this might be worth having as they do sell for anywhere from $10 - $30 depending on the quality. However they are all usually 10" in size not 7". This is pretty much a smaller version of the standard plushie you find anywhere. From the original pictures included of the box set when announced they showed a completely different , higher quality Sackboy plushie. It was the first thing I noticed also was that this wasn't the advertised Plushie in fact it is all over the internet, in these reviews, my friends pointed it out also. Is this a killer, not really as you still get a cute plushie! Its just a bit of a let down as well as slightly misleading pictures/advertising
ANYHOW as you can see , in my book the CE scored 2 100's 2 50's and a 60 so doing some math that's 72% (i'm not including #5 in the calculation for obvious reasons :) )
72% is pretty low in my book for a CE box set. (C- aka.. BARELY passing) With that said:
*** The CE is a PASS. Do not spend $20 on this unless you honestly want a 7" plushie for the kids (or to add to a collection or something) and some bookends that sorta-kinda-maybe work half the time 0_o the costumes are really nice though but I'm sure you can end up buying them as DLC later on. Save your money
