    All games you ever liked mixed together into one huge colored gaming orgy. Even so, it is not all chaos but a catchy and fascinating game which makes you thrilled to the end. [Issue#200]

    LittleBigPlanet 2 is a special game that entertains effectively, and does nothing less. Playing together with friends, and enjoying the unrestrained power of man's creativity is a sight to behold.

    An amazing game that will ultimately only be limited by the imaginations of the people who play it. [Issue#201, p.86]

    If you're looking for a platform game LBP2 is a great one, although not as good as Super Mario Galaxy 2, Donkey Kong Country Returns or even Super Meat Boy. But if you're looking for an extremely powerful set of tools to unleash your creativity, LittleBigPlanet 2 has no rival.

    Littlebigplanet 2 is a triumph in user generated content that expands the original in ways previously thought to be impossible.

    The sheer amount of content and improvements more than warrants the price tag and you would be crazy to pass up this delightful package.

    Its depth can be terribly intimidating.

Very rarely is a game's sequel not only a great improvement, but also a carrier of amazing additions that make it feel like a fresh new game. I can hardly contain my fanboy madness at the new gadgets, tools, tweaks and CONTROLLER MAPPING!! The ability to create games that are no longer stuck on the platformer genre, but open the world to everything from RPG's to FPS's. This game redefines the custom builder mechanism that is slowly becoming more popular. A king of creation, Little Big Planet 2 is truly limited to your capacity for creativity!! Expand

    The one tiff I have with this game is when sometimes you create something, you come back the next day to find it mysteriously broken.. WTF. this happend to me many times and it was frustrating.
    Overall good game.
    Must buy

    little big planet rent or buy my verdict...buy! why? because little big planet 2 is a very fun and rewarding game.That being said do not shylittle big planet rent or buy my verdict...buy! why? because little big planet 2 is a very fun and rewarding game.That being said do not shy away from this game because you think it's for little kid's.At heart i think this game is for everyone parent's should buy this for their children.And buy this if you have friend's who play it i promise you will have a great time.Well i guess i haven't told you much about the game or the gameplay.I guess we will start with the gameplay this is a cooperative game at heart the more friend's the more enjoyable the game is it's just that simple.Okay you jump with the x button grab with R1 and you move with the left analog stick very simple but fun.the story i won't ruin but basically you must stop a monster from destroying the world.Thus leading to a collection of fun,unique,and colorful level's.Now don't get me wrong this is a great game but it fell short of being perfect like it's predecessor and that is why i am rewarding little big planet 2 a merely perfect 9/10.

    In case you're wondering why I bought the second, I didn't, a friend did and I played to do him a favor. A huge favor it was and he will never be able to repay it.
