Little Big Planet 2: Thoughts on gameplay from beta rooms event

Dualshockers: I recently got to the chance to play Little Big Planet 2 at Sony’s recent Beta Room event in the UK and I can sum up my experience with one single word – “WOW”. Check out the video above to see my reactions and thoughts on what I believe is a very strong contender for GOTY 2010.

I hope Sony has a open beta for this game

A beta would be a nice sweetener but it really dosnt matter. Base on what i have seen and what this guy says then its a day one purchase for me.

Yeah, I agree, I trust Media Molecule. The thing with LBP is that it's a giant learning process and a game that builds on top of it's predecessor. LBP1 was pretty much the beta for LBP2 and I know that the devs have been paying clear attention to us.

As long as jumping can be tuned, gravity can be tuned, loading and lag is fixed, and creation becomes easier (along with the ability to create/publish something with multiple users) then I'll be fine. And since all of that is apparently in the game with a ton more being added I'm just super excited.

Regardless I'd like a beta just to play the game early and find bugs for these guys.

I know that gravity can be tweaked during level creation as we played one level which was like an LBP version of Unreal Tournament deathmatch, with really low gravity and missile launchers - it was pure awesome. Played out kind of like a long range version of super smash bros.

Anyway your right to be excited, i cant wait :)

Also creating sequential episodes that automatically cycle through as you play would be great, imagine making a game series that does not require you to find each chapter but loads one after the other.

-Alpha2781d ago (Edited 2781d ago )

Oh, what I REALLY want is the ability to program characters. So if someone makes an RPG they should have the ability to save stats-- if at the end of the level I have 3 life, 2 strength, 4 magic, etc, it should save for a sequel or the next level like despair suggested (cycled levels).

Cycled levels are actually confirmed from the trailer.


that sounds awesome.

It'd be really cool if they can add FPS, or just depth. But I suppose that's for LBP3. When they add depth then that is going to take LBP to a whole other dimension (pun intended).

I remember some of the PR hype for the first LBP were media molecule described it as being a platform rather than a single game - I dont think that quite came to fruition on the first game because you were always limited to the 2D ish, 3 tier platform game.

thats completely gone out of the window in LBP 2 and we saw some carzy stuff. I really do think that the only limit on this game is going to be peoples imaginations.

Yeah i remember that speel.

The "cat beast thing" you mention in the video just makes me think of that creature in The Last Guardian.

MariaHelFutura2781d ago

LBP2 has the potential to be one of the best/the best game ever created. When considering how the community ran wild w/ the first game, LBP2 is going to create some epic levels/games. Faster, Better, Stronger. LOL.

I just want LBP2 to screw with reviewers and GOTY awards, because there's racing and shoot em ups. They may have to create a new genre 'Play create share.'

D4RkNIKON2781d ago

Maybe it will win in multiple categories lol.

Racing GOTY goes to LBP2
Shooter GOTY goes to LBP2
Platformer GOTY goes to LBP2

haha just kidding but who knows lol

mrv3212781d ago

Racing GOTY goes to GT5 :p

I have been patiently waiting for this title since I heard about it. I'm so stoked to be able to create actual games, and not just levels. I was a big fan of the first, and solely purchased it on the fact that I could create my own world. This is honestly one of the most original games that has been released on any console. Hands down!
