This one of the most creative reviews I've seen done. I think I fall in the A+ range.

Army_of_Darkness2841d ago

You got disagrees cause they think Lbp2 is also on another platform?!?! Lol!

Omegasyde2841d ago

You can't call out GOTY in the first month of the year. Shaka you are feeding the trolls, when and if a better game comes out.

Sev2841d ago

I really love that quote. Fits perfectly with LittleBigPlanet.

negroguy2841d ago

That really is a dam good quote. Props to whoever thought of it.

-Alpha2841d ago (Edited 2841d ago )

It comes from an older quote that I think came from Chinese proverb that goes:

"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime."

stormeagle62841d ago

Yup Alpha hit it on the head.

Ducky2841d ago

Don't forget the many, many, many spinoffs.

"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day."

lol the trolls now start reviewing

a minus for being to cute? seriously wtf? this game is rated E for everyone was to be appealing to small children as cute. this dumbass play fps games all day or what?

-Alpha2841d ago (Edited 2841d ago )

There is no negative for being cute. You didn't read the card properly. The last card is their report. The ones before are some sort of scoring guideline, it is NOT their final opinion on the game. And they complain about the floaty controls and steep learning curve. That's it.

The review is fine. Not everybody has to give it A++

Edit: wow, you get 8 agrees for inaccurately making a wrongful claim, it's quite evident people didn't read the review but simply start crying when they see any score that isn't up to their liking.

Disagree till your face turns blue, there is nothing wrong with this review giving the game a B+

Sev2841d ago

@ Alpha, you've got a good head on your shoulders. Let me put something together and I'll get it to you before the week is over.

hoops2841d ago

Alpha...thats N4G.COM for you....

-Alpha2841d ago (Edited 2841d ago )

The report says B+

The C is in reference to a "Do it Yourself" Scoring guide. The opinion of the reviewer is that the game is a B+:

"Hope you had fun! And hopefully you were able to figure out where you fit on the spectrum of gamers, cause LittleBigPlanet 2 will elicit a wide range of responses from those who play it. Anyway, on to the “real” report card, because the powers that be demand it of me."

+ Entertaining story mode
- …minus some floaty controls
+ Tons of collectibles
+ Great co-op and versus play
+ Unprecedented level editor abilities
- …with a steep learning curve
+ You should always find new creations online
+/- Pretty much entirely community-driven

stormeagle62841d ago

Please pay attention to the whole review before jumping to conclusions. Report cards A, B, and C are NOT the actual grades, they are reflections of what certain types of gamers would think. In this case, report card C is from the point of view of someone who isn't into level editor type stuff. It isn't at all indicative of the final B+ grade, which weighs those different points of view together.

Game Revolution is widely known for being particularly tough on games.

According to Metacritic they rate games on average 10 points lower than the average critic score. With Game Rev, you know you are getting a unbiased, quality review as they've been around for roughly 15 years.

Game Revolution has published over 2300 reviews. How many have you published?

49erguy2841d ago

What the fuck is up with these lower scores lately? In a few months (or weeks after release) they'll be eating their words with the communities' creations. They'll be creating things beyond our wildest dreams! Just wait and see......

-Alpha2841d ago

The review doesn't complain about the community levels, it complains about the campaign's floaty jumping and steep learning curve. I really don't understand why everybody goes apeshit over a slightly lower review score.

hoops2841d ago

They go apeshit because they are fanboys.
Reviews are ONE persons opinion. That's why reviews are just guides and for the most part...nonsense.
The person BUYING the game should be the judge. Not someone we don't know from Adam.

GeneGodHand2841d ago

No one is going apeshit it just some people feel like it shouldn't get a B :/

49erguy2841d ago

Maybe I wanna go apeshit. SO THE FUCK WHAT. Its my opinion that this game deserves a better score and I commented. That's what comments are for. If you disagree then say it. No reason to diagnose me with fanboyism.

49erguy2841d ago (Edited 2841d ago )

"floaty jumping and steep learning curve"

I can see where it can be a matter of personal taste reguarding that. Much like Killzone 2's "weighty" feel. The floatyness is a trademark of the game. Its synonymous with sackboy. What do they want KZ3 to be COD and LBP to be Mario?

If they consider that a steep leaning curve then I can only assume they didn't play the first LBP.

goflyakite2841d ago

And I guarantee you if they felt like COD and Mario, it'd still be a minus in these people's books.

There is NOTHING wrong with LBP controls, they are different, that is all. I can control LBP just as well as any other platformer out there, if you can't, you're just not good at the game. Which in that case, should NOT result in a lower score.

Kon2841d ago

Strange score. It deserves more than B+

Lirky2841d ago

most games that are infinite especially after the story mode + online play infinite fun should deserve A+ i agree with you.

stormeagle62841d ago

Geez, Didn't you all get the point of the multiple report cards? Or did you just not read the whole thing? The review (and the final score) is pointing out that this game isn't for everyone. Some people out there will view it as an A+. Some who just aren't into the level editor stuff will like it less. The final score is a reflection of that.

goflyakite2841d ago

"Some who just aren't into the level editor stuff will like it less."

I didn't make a single level in LBP and it is still in my top 3 games on this generation. That statement is simply not true. Even if you aren't into creating levels like me, you get to play the millions of levels from people who are.
