    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

Play your LBP1 levels on little big planet 2 and the graphical difference is amazing...more smooth, more specular effects and loads more colour to boot. The level creater is in there but this time round there's much more you can do with it from making the usual LBP1 type standard levels to creating a new game altogether...race games, rpg zelda type games, the choice is yours.......is it better than LBP1------oh yes! and then some....10 out of 10 without a doubt.

You don't need me to tell you what it's like because if you don't own it now, you probably never will. What you do need is me to tell you that you're wrong to not revere this game and allow it to extract every drop of creativity from your surprisingly inventive mind. Expand

Anyone who doesnt like it shouldn't be so negative. It is beautifully made with amazing graphics and superb gameplay. The Story in my opinion, is fantastic and very enjoyable. The extra features, which i wont say, keep you coming back loads of times. The Creating is much easier and even me, a rubbish creator, can make something ever so simple, but good. I think this game is amazing. Expand

But unfortunately the charm of the first game is gone. LBP 2 is a charming game but doesn't have the same look and charm as the first game. But this game is better in any way, it's easier to create your own levels (even make whole new games!) and the graphics are improved. The singleplayer is good and funny, but I have to say that I miss the good old collector. But I'm sure everyone can meet him online. The multiplayer is better and It's easy to get new friends. GO BUY LBP2 IF YOU HAVEN'T! DONE IT YET Expand

    The story mode is a bit lackluster, but the multiplayer is absolutely superb. Tons of creative and fun maps and mini games to choose from.

    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.
