The Playstation 3 had a first great month of 2011, with LittleBig Planet 2, Dead Space 2 and Mass Effect 2. All great games and personally, i couldn't possibly choose just one for GOTM.

LittleBigPlanet 2 is under-rated and under-appreciate by a great many (not all) critics. What is going on? It deserves to be even higher rated than its predecessor. It's an improvement in every conceivable way, and vastly so. It definitely should have been the PS3 game of the month this month in my opinion. I like Mass Effect 2, but LittleBigPlanet 2 is absolutely unmatched in this world of games.

yeah, LBP2 is absolutely awesome, and is so much better than the first, but it doesn't feel as new and fresh as when I played the first, which could explain why it hasn't been rated better than it.

Am I the only one to be annoyed by the cutscenes? I don't really care about the story, I preferred how the first game did; just throwing you into a level and just putting in two speach bubbles from "NPCs".

LittleBigPlanet 2 is underrated because most people these days prefer their endless dose of first persons shooters thats why the market is saturated with these cut-outs. I don't hate FPSs because I prefer gaming on them on an occasional basis but people should look at other games of other genres because people will look back at this gen as when generic shooters dominated.

uh mass effect 2 for game of the month.
sure its a great game and all.
but littlebigplanet 2 rightly deserves the title of game of the month.

Add DCUO to the under-appreciated list alongside LBP2.

Just a great month. DCU set sales records for SOE, LBP set Guiness records in Times Square. Critics however were extra negative in January, ending off with Dead Space 2 getting a 58/100 on the Onion AV Club. Lot of tunnel vision out there. Even with ME2 as game of the month a year later. It's time to move on.

LBP2 robbed. Pure and simple.

ME2 is great, but it's a year old now. Ah but it's IGN...
