LittleBigPlanet 2 throws in an absolutely massive amount of new features but forgets to improve upon its gameplay mechanics and in turn loses some of its groove.
What kind of crap site is this, they should be closed down for giving such a low score
I concur with this review...I mean honestly how can they simply add a couple more map making techniques, and fail to update anything else about the franchise?...simply putting a "fresh coat"of paint on the series and calling it LBP2 simply will not cut it with reviewers these days...actually thinking further into it 7.5 may be a little too generous for this lackluster iteration...maybe next time Media Molecule will bring their A+ Game
Lol. Wait, that was a joke right?
The formula is pretty much perfect and entirely unique. What, pray tell, do you suggest they change? They already COMPLETELY revamped gameplay possibilities - now being able to play TPS, FPS, RPG, RTS games like you couldn't do so before. Introduced a whole new way of travelling through the level/ interacting with it with the grabbinator, creatinator, grapple hook etc. Let alone the huge improvement in graphics, voice actors, interface etc... LBP2 is an A+ game - it's the highest rated exclusive of this year and very highly rated on average.
So crafting a whole new single player, adding all new abilities, grappling hook, grabinators, creatanator and the ability to create moving objects. Also being able to make cutscenese, record your voice, and program working Ai. All your doing is being a BS fanboy, this game is one of the most replayable and most accessible games ever made.
Lbp2 isnt lbp1, lbp2 includes mini game making tools and it allows u to build things faster if your a creator the game is for creators/level players. In lbp1 u couldnt make mini games in depth or even movie trailers or machinima mini films in a saga way recording it with a capture device uploading it to youtube.
I like how you accidentally ended up describing HALO(and COD-like games), hahahaha Please GTFO
SHiN OMGFGH LOL I thought the same exact thing. I thought he was about to be clever and make a joke about Halo & Call of duty & Madden, but no.. he was dead serious... lol.
Obviously never played it. Theres more NEW content in LBP 2 than most games have in their entirety. Its almost impossible to fathom how much has improved. Its like asking how big is space? LBP2 is the true definition of a sequel. To imply its merely a fresh coat of paint is insulting. Its raised the bar so high and the bar was still where part 1 left it. The only thing lacklustre, is your opinion.
Who hell are these people!! Did they even open the packageing of the game!!
Their is nothing wrong with LBP2's jumping. Different does not equal bad. But nitpicking/reaching is pathetic. The 7.5 is totally not justified.
I agree. The 7.5 is totally unjustified. Complaining about the jumping when its a known feature of the game which makes it what it is, is plain stupid. All the low review scores seem to pull LBP2 down due to this, but when its BLOPS its perfectly fine to have a laggy as hell and glitched experience.
OH NO HE DI 'NT!
OMG DID THIS SITE JUZ GO THERE!!!!
SHITZ JUST GOT REAL!
Wth, this game is a minimum 8.5......... I have put more hours into this game and spent even longer playing the single player which is brilliantly crafted. Not to mention the created levels are even better. There is more to do, more options and even more gam play tweaks and changes. How can you give it a 7.5.........and for you to say the grappling hook is hard to control is making you seem like you cant play the game, my 8 year old sister has NEVER found the grapple hook hard to use, but you a so called gaming journalist find it hard. Poor form. My sisters and I have aced all the levels, so this precision issue ylou have, is you, not the game. I can be pin point accurate, just because you struggle to play the game, doesn't mean its the games fault, you just seem to suck.
LBP 2 is better then the first game, SP&MP. Don't be fooled by the shit. But remember, HALO1, is better then HALO2,HALO3 AND HALO REACH.
"throws in an absolutely massive amount of new features but forgets to improve upon its gameplay mechanics" This does not make sense. Look, if there are a lot of new features doesn't that alter the gameplay? Oh I forgot, they were expecting you to be able to commando people up close and fire a weapon. In that case yes, LBP2 is lacking. If there is a game with a lot of versatility it's this game. If you don't like a certain genre of a game than why bother reviewing it. Every freaking game out there has the same mechanics to that genre it was built upon. A fps will be a fps, a rpg will be a rpg. I just don't get reviews like these.
Sorry but a game that has 3 .5 million created levels in no way deserves less than a 9 , the game is beyond amazing and only right bitter fanboys would rate this game so low
Why a 7.5?
Christ you people are whiners. 7.5 isn't even a bad score.
When you review a game like LBP. You judge it with it's POTENTIAL. This isn't a platformer where you run till the end of the level and declare victory. What purpose then is for the "stickers". Where are the RPG'S, the Fighters and whole limtless games LBP promised that wasn't in the single-player? EXACTLY. You only see this in the community levels. How then can you review a game if you only touched the surface. If you continue to persist that "XX isn't a bad score", please go to said review site, pick up a review with the same score and compare. Then explain why the game deserve this and that score. I've got 2 examples from you at this site: Sports Champions Band Hero Noby Noby Boy All at the 7.5 range. You mean to tell me LBP2 has as much depth and gameplay to warrant the same score as these games? -End of Line
