Few games can simultaneously promote a philosophy (i.e. the power of imagination and creativity) and live it out across every single pixel, but LittleBigPlanet 2 does it, and with an ease and skill that is just remarkable.
Awesome, another perfect review!
LBP 2 - I expect nothing less than ecxellence & perfection. ^_^
Too many games, so little time. LBP was a blast and it looks like LBP2 is being taking to a whole other level, literally. Cant wait!
Can't wait to play this next week!
Now lets see if Meta critic will post this review. the Meta score is now down to 92, i swear Metacritic leaves out certain review scores for some reason. LBP2 should atleast be at 94 meta
They do leave out certain reviews, not really sure why. And it can't be source alone, because I've seen them post two reviews from the same site, with the same review, same score, just translated different. But the scores don't matter, cause by now we know its going to be a quality game. The only review that matters is yours now when you buy the game and play it for yourself.
I've noticed some popular sites not on there but they add sites that no one has ever even heard of. Thats why metacritic isnt a good site.
They weight the reviews in the average though. If a review has been left off the list, I would suggest e-mailing them so it can be added. I don't think they're biased, maybe just a little inept.
They don't include Destructoid in their database. BAM! Automatic win.
I agree with your statement because of Jim Sterling. He doesn't honestly rate games. If he gets crabby and is on his period he will give a game that deserves a 6 or 7 a 2 and so on. He will probbaly rate LBP2 a 4 because Dominos delivered his fat-ass a pizza too late and he is hungry. Hungry Jim Sterling = Unhappy.
I wrote the above not realizing that Fatty Sterling himself already reviewed it at 7.5 A 7.5 seems awfully low but a review is an opinion. Still, Jim would have rated it a 9.5 if he had gotten his Pizza in time.
Dude give it a rest, Jesus. How far can you dig to try to come up with some sort of conspiracy. Oh no, it's down .0001 points now. Does the meta score effect your enjoyment of the game? Honestly, answer 1 question, why do you care? Why do you give half a sh!t about the meta score, it's a arbitrary median score based on the --> *OPINIONS* <--of X number of random journalists that may or may not have thought the game was worth a 9.25 instead of a 9.5. God you people are so tedious.
Which is exactly why I don't care about Metacritic. gamerankings.com is by far the best score aggregate site for video games. Every score that is taken into account is because of certain parameters or requisites. Such as "site needs to have X number of reviews if they're mulitplatform, or X number if they're only one system" etc. Not to mention it goes into even more depth with the sites, such as what the average of reviews for that site is and how many. Just a much better site IMO.
@HelghastDrake They stopped including G4TV scores a couple years ago I think. Some of their inclusions are just plain weird. Wtf is IncGamers?! Meta' has their 85/100 up but still haven't posted the 10/10 from the Official Playstation Magazine UK from December which was actually the 1st review anywhere, lol. They always post OPM scores, don't know why they're holding out on this one. They had no problem posting the shitty OPM Australia score which knocked Demon's Souls from 90 to 89. Get on the ball meta'.
G4 does not allow it's score to be posted on Metacritic. All of those 60's they assigned most Xplay reviews that were 3 out of 5 pissed off Adam Sessler enough to nerd rage on Metacritic at a public event.
Ouch for if this review is approvaled under the xbox 360 tag. CHANGE IT!!!
ok ok i see that all the lbp2 reviews are in, and it's confirmed that this game is liable for goty. i'm just wondering when will that killzone 3 review come in, i remember hearing OPM will release their review this month
@Kran prob the person did it on purpose to confuse give xbox360 owners false hope....that's kinda cruel
Dang little GOD planet 5/5 nice nice.
perfect review score for a perfect game :D
I am so getting this game.
Nice, LBP 2 is gonna be awesome, but I'll be picking it up later this year or the GOTY edition, cuz of money problems, so I think Killzone 3 will be my first new game of 2011 :)
Lol...I've been playing the beta for 4 months non-stop. If you can afford KZ3 then why can't you afford this?? ITS THE BEST GAME EVER!!
The excitement level has grown into an almost unbearable level. One week to go!
Four more days! :D
One of the 3 major games I'm thinking of picking up on PS3 this month. ... This is how 2011 is kicking off?! Holy sh*t, this is gonna be a crazy year for games, mainly for Sony's console right now.
Bestbuy i herd are doing a buy 2 get 1 free sale soon.
As soon as I opt for one of those frickin PowerUp cards in Gamestop.... Arrrgh
This is a Game of The Year contender. Lets see that again in LBP style.....GaMe oF tHe YEaR!
If you like having fun, then you'll like LBP2. 'Nuff said.
Are you going to pay 4.99 to buy the week 1 t-shirt with the animated lbp2 green tree on it. I am its worth it
i knew this would happen, great review score but littlebigplanet 2 plays better than the reviews scores.
I really want to like this game.
That is a decent score. Isnt it?
