A review of the Metal Gear Solid Level Pack for LittleBigPlanet, answering if the DLC is worth the $6 price tag.
it's only 6 dollars, c'mon this article is necesary?, even muy beers cost more.
Not sure why people are disagreeing with you. Yeah, you're a fanboy, but you make a good point. Most people pay this much or more for food, and get half the enjoyment out of it. This LBP mod basically turns the game into a completely different one. I'd say 6 bucks is more than worth it. This article though? Worth-LESS.
Yeah, see people disagree with the USER not his comment, so if the user is disliked no matter what he says he'l get a disagree Anyway hope you had a good christmas tatitoburn
I can afford to gamble a couple quid, i'd imagine the Mgs pack would b quite fun
it's so worth it,just being able to get the license to use MGS tunes in your own levels makes it worth it,creating shoot em ups a few new things like the plasma balls,then new materials and stickers,then you get the levels,and they are some off the best in LBP.then the levels make good challenges for the leaderboards if you do them as races.
As an MGS fan yes and no. yes it adds to the already great and fun game that LBP is but the content as far gameplay wise is a little on the short side. got it a second after release finished the entire thing within the hour well all except the vr which I haven't received trophy for....but it really is fun though... but only 5 stages...... oh hell I enjoyed it and still keep going bk for more my fav is fighting the MG Rex
I understand what you mean as it can be done in a hour,but so do the chapters in the story mode,I haven't tried to ace them or nothing yet though so I still have a few more hours on it
When did people become such tight arses? If its fun, its worth it. I'm not a rich guy or anything, but if I spend anything more than 15 minutes procrastinating over whether its worth it or not, then I could have made that $6 working and bought it.
"When did people become such tight arses? If its fun, its worth it." That's what I think when people complain about the cost of XBL.
XBL is a infra-structure, not a game or add-on. So you are not paying to have fun, you are paying to access the enviroment where you can buy fun. I'm not even saying it's not worth the money (in my opnion it's not worth unless you really don't have other way around, but hey, it's not my money too...), just pointing that this coment don't really fit in here.
@bishop-br Good comment. Bubble up..
This is the best DLC I have ever bought and it is only $5.99. Went ahead and got the costume pack also because I am a true MGS fan.
At 2 bucks I probably buy it.
There's at least $6 worth of entertainment, even if you add on the costume pack, it's still worth it. It's probably the only LBP paid DLC that is worth it.
some killzone 2 costumes would be great fun too, little helgasts jumping around. but like you said some kind of final fantasy pack would be a great edition.
Sony is my favourite of the big 3, but I think they're just whoring out LBP content as a quick cash in. A buck here for a new costume, 2 bucks here for a new level. I never subscribed to the microtransaction model for DLC and I never will. I bought the game and that's the only money I'm paying. If the DLC is free, that's another story but I'm not giving away another 5-10 dollars for some meagre addon that'll extend the game's life by 15 minutes.
i used to think the same thing about having to pay for DLC, but my opinion has changed after reading some of the interviews with media molecule. When asked by journalists if they are working on a sequel for LBP they answer saying that several DLC level packs will take the place of a sequel and you will be able to continue playing new levels forever and ever. So really it makes sense that they should cost money. instead of the MM team working on a sequel they are working on new levels for an already incredible game.
The weapons alone are worth it. Sure added to my giant mechanized robot. Have to say though, there are too many junk levels keeping good content from being played. It really hurts(not really but it's a damn shame) that know one has played my level, It's practically not worth the effort.
@Kain My only deception is that I just realized with this last patch that my FF patch desire won't come. I want to have real enemies and I was hoping that FF patch would bring in some swords (giving us some hack'n'slash / beat'em'up gameplay) as MGS patch bring weapons, but I was just told that no AI for enemies was ever set (I didn't buy the MGS add-on, but my friends, which was expecting to have some more natural enemies too told me). The best we'll get is our home-made enemies that only go in simple routines But, even with that said, I can't expect for the FF add-on too. @beatrixkiddo Bubles up for the common sense and great Kill Bill name.
odd no article on GEARS2's dlc
Quite odd, indeed.
All the reports show that not may people are playing Gears online so go figure. Halo 3 is back at number 1 and Gears 2 is like 4th behind the Call of duty games, Street Fighter HD and left for dead.
give me your hitttssssss
I broke my controller while trying to get the trophy for firing 40 paintballs in 5 seconds :( The R1 button keeps sticking now.. Oh dear!
Do what I did... just get a water bottle, where the side of the bottle is bumpy (the kind of water bottles that come in 24 packs at the grocery store). and take your controller, and rub the side of the bottle against the R1 button, if you do it right, you should get that trophy pretty quickly... Hope this helps. :D
I just went into track and field turbo mode and did first time :) I got the fastest finger in the west
that's what she said
Worth every penny IMO
its 6 bucks, is a review really necessary?
You'd be surprised at how many people are still on the fence about whether to buy it or not.
It's a game changer man, I don't know anyone who has purchased it and regretted it. If the rest of the DLC packs are of this quality from MM then they have my money for as long as possible.
Definitely agree. This brings a completely new element into making levels. I'm still designing my first level and the paintinator is something that fits PERFECTLY with it.
It's cheaper than some iPhone games out there.
It's cheap and it's really, really funny. The Metal Gear boss battle is hell of a fun. Just one thing I don't like and that is that one of the levels is an introduction and completely useless.
Grab the sticker switch and get a bunch of new items by hitting all of the targets with it. It is not a totally useless level because you can still gain a bunch of new items.
Seems like ill have to stop playing r2 online for a while and dust of lbp loved mgs should be fun might w8 a week or so though r2 online is just to awesome Skirmish you had me at hello
Talk about addicting; R2 is the ultimate online experience. I was loving the 60 player competitive, but then i got stuck on the co-op; level 29 spec-op.
I did it the other way started on coop lvl 30 medic (thats max lvl for coop) then got hooked on competitive lvl 20 yep one of the best online fps i have ever played
Moved to 1.3
Metal Gear Solid 4 LBP Map Pack: Is this a sign of the Playstation 3 and Blu-Ray's demise????????????????????????
Was that some form of sarcasm?
It is bloody brilliant, thats all i can say!!!!!!!!
yea it is. i have been playing that VR mission alot. (survival mission)
yes it was worth it and I hope they keep it up. You know what's not worth it? virtual HOME shirts at $2.00 a piece.
yeah i'm not too keen on paying for DLC in Home when it's still in beta. I'm thinking they could take away all that stuff we paid for at some point in the future.
I only purchased one item off home and that was only because I had 90p left on my account. That is the first and last thing I intend to pay for on home.
Great fun, new trophies, great online multiplayer action, adds tons of new options to level creation. And anyone who doesn't but the DLC can still play the MGS levels with others and also user-created levels. Well worth it!!! The Paintonator is genius and shows what potential LBP has for the future. Check out my level "Paint This!". It's short and simple but shows what can be done with the new DLC. psn Bantha274 I'm working on a UFO/Alien Adventure level that will knock your socks off! Trying to use every tool/device in LBP on this level. I'm already easily 50 hrs into it and still going. Coming soon!
Is the 360 worth all the hassle and headache of burning your house down? Enough with these stupid articles. OBAMA!!!
If I can shoot guns without the DLC, I probably wouldn't get it. The MGS gamepack likely would be fun, but Corporate DLC undermines the concept of getting fun games made by a gaming community to me. But maybe I can look at it as a needed add-on. With bonuses.
I think Burnout Paradise and Criterion/EA have proven corporate DLC hasn't undermined anything. I'm all for expanding my gaming experiences via DLC. IF it is worth it. And this is definitely worth it.
some with semi automatic and some were full on auto, check out my LBC-1 level, no guns in there but you will get to see my LBP ingenuity.
NICE! That's what I'm talking about.
of course its worth it. Unless , you don't have any money & are bitter that Santa skipped your house & forgot your ps3. Ha ha! No ps3 this Christmas means no one really loves you. Bye bye now, future trolls of n4g.
feels like megaman or contra i loved it before the paintanators
Well this time I'm not going to read the article, cause my answer for the title is, yes it is worth it.
I have it and its awesome. Puts a whole new spin on the game, just imagine if they do Resistance 2 packs, Killzone 2 packs, Rachet and Clank packs. it would be smart for Sony and Media Molecule to do things like that cause it can add life to the game. lets just say $6 times 1,000,000 users........... thats a lot of money. So why wouldn't they do that. i say bring on the packs!!!!!
All those packs would be SOO SWEET! LBP really has so much potential. Sony is doing something special with this game and the possibilities are right there. I hope this game continues to grow and expand.
The Metal Gear Solid Level Pack for LittleBigPlanet introduces a new costume, 5 new story levels, a new challenge level, along with tons of new stickers and gadgets to enjoy. For $6. do they need to say more
it reminds me back when i used to play mario i gives me that simple joy again.
The real question is. Was the combustible map pack for Gears of War worth the ten dollars? I dont know about you, but I could have bought a downloadable game for that much. Sorry guys, 3 new maps is not worth 10 dollars. I bought them like an idiot, but I was expecting alot more.
I was really impressed by the amount of stuff you get for $6.00. If you haven't gotten the pack. Get it. I is definitely worth it.
but ever since I downloaded it my LBP game doesn't save...anyone know a fix?
Did you happen to change your password/sign in address recently? Because if so there's a bug going around that f*cks up your save game files or something like that.
no... sorry but im not paying extra for this crap... the same people who bash gta dlc are also buying this... shame on you
This is the only DLC i have bought for LBP. Love it!!
I think the level kits/packs (whatever they call them) are worth it but the costumes are too much.
worth it. so shut up!
for $6 it was worth it to see my 7yr old niece run around the screen with the Paintinator spatting everything with blue paint. its just to bad you can only use it on the MGS levels and on home made levels
