Impossibly cute Sony superstar Sackboy is back for another series of fun-packed adventures in the hotly anticipated follow up to LittleBigPlanet. With a host of new gadgets to mess around with and literally millions of levels to enjoy, this modern classic is the game that keeps on giving!

A handmade arcade

A Platform for Games
A powerful new set of tools awaits you, tools that vastly widen the scope of possibility, and that hand you the power to create whole games.

Through a familiar but revamped Popit, you can bring your characters to life, compose your own music, direct cinematic masterpieces, wire controllers directly in to your contraptions, connect easy to use switches, microchips and circuit boards to build epic bosses, vehicles, machines, and puzzles.

Make your wildest dreams come true, yes, even that one.

Grin-inducing power ups
Since the dawn of game, power-ups, enhancements and special abilities have enabled video game characters to go that extra mile, faster, bigger, and better equipped than they'd otherwise be. So what great game would be complete without them?

Our grandest handmade adventure
Bring your little Sackperson on a brand-spanking-new adventure, wrought with mild, and possibly even pant-wetting peril, and spanning an entire cosmos of tomfoolery...

Happy that no more demands are being made to him after his successful adventure to return sharing to LittleBigPlanet, it's all going swimmingly for Sackboy... That is, until a some kind of inter-dimensional, hyper-spatial, 1800 watt Vacuum Cleaner appears in the skies, causing quite the ruckus and sucking Sackboy up into its musty bowels. All jolly sinister and most inconvenient. Happily, a jolly nice fellow named Larry Da Vinci intervenes and rescues him from what has come to be known as The Sucker. Da Vinci, it turns out, is in charge of "The Alliance", a semi-secret, semi-organised group devoted to fighting The Sucker before it destroys the whole Cosmos.

You're about to get recruited, I'll bet my teeth! A grand adventure is afoot, with a butt-load of new themes, toys, enemies and all manner of shenanigans.

One BIG community

2 million levels ready to play
LittleBigPlanet is a manifested embodiment of your perfect dream world. It's all about your imagination, and your creativity and to date you've filled it with over 2 million levels.

LittleBigPlanet 2 is part of that very same dream world, it's all one big ever-expanding cheese-stuffed-crust community, which means each and every one of those two million creations will be yours to play, right out of the box, along with everything you've already collected or built in LittleBigPlanet.

Play, create, share and discover
With two million creations out there, and millions more to come, it's important that you're able to find the experience you're looking for. We've expanded Share to enhance your ability to discover exactly what you want to find.

We've given the searching system a total overhaul, and we've added Activity Streams so you can follow your friends and hearted creators to see what they'e getting up to, helping you unearth all the top notch playable nuggets that are popping into existence all around you.

A new web portal will give every single LBP creation its own home on the web, with a page for every creator and every level. Browse creations online to find fab levels, add them to your queue to play later on, check photos, comments, leader-boards, create and share playlists, and easily promote your levels and games wherever you might hang out online.

I smell a revolution.

  • Everything you need to make your own game
    With our new toolset in your little burlap hands, you'll have all the ingredients of a great game laid out before you, waiting for you to stew them up into something nutritious

  • Loveable characters
    Add life to your levels by dropping in a couple of Sackbots, then tweak 'em to fit your purpose: style, shape, resize and dress them up nice, and then bring them to life with digital puppetry: either choosing their behaviour or recording your own. Sackbots can be friends or foes, robots or zombies... whatever you want!

  • Cinematic masterpieces
    You no longer have to be an academy award winning film maker to build great game cinematics (although it will help it has to be said.) New cinematic tools make it pretty darn simple to wheel in a couple of cameras into your level, choose the angles, zoom in, make it pan, sweep, fade out, and then string them all together to tell a story... With these tools there's no need to stop at cut scenes either: combine the new cameras with Sackbots and you could create music videos, short films or even entire movies

  • Your own controls
    Open up the guts of the Controller by placing a Direct Control Seat into the world, popping up its controller shaped circuit board, and wiring the buttons to whatever you like - switches, motors, sound objects... Your vehicles and creations can behave exactly the way you want them to, or you can just wire up all the controls to various burping noises to make a crude instrument. With Direct control you can take Sackboy out of the picture, and make a game that doesn't even remotely resemble ours. Your very own handmade arcade

  • Intelligent machines, bosses, puzzles and vehicles.
    LittleBigPlanet allowed you to string together vast piston-fuelled logic systems to control your bosses,vehicles, puzzles and machines. We've taken that system and simplified it to save on effort, space, thermometer load, and allow for far more advanced setups

    Circuit boards are your new friends, the very best friends you'll ever have. You can resize them, cover them in all manner of switches, wire it all up, and then shrink it down to a tiny, tiny microchip... stick that on your creation, and give it all the logic you've just defined

 A fantastic sequel

I am a BETA tester for LBP2, and now the restricitons are lifted, I can tell you all about it.

There is a new game engine, so the game is a lot sharper and crisper than before, with a lot of new stuff to play with in create mode to boot.

Speaking of create, the things people have created so far is fantastic, you really can create whole games with the help of a ton of new features. This is a truely great game from what I can tell so far from the BETA, I would advise getting it ASAP, as these will fly of shelves. You can also decorate your planet and moon with all of the stickers and decouratioons you have collected, and you can keep all of the stickers and costumes you got from the first game as it interacts with you old profile

it is great to be able to talk about the BETA, so take a look at some youtube posts on it. Bear in mind it is a BETA, so the original game will probably have a lot of other stuff, and the quality of the posts will NOT reflect the release.

This is just a massive improvement over LittleBigPlanet, but still retains everything that you loved about the original LittleBigPlanet.

To begin with, the single player is so much more compelling. The storyline actually is very decent and the core gameplay is fantastic. For instance, the addition of gadgets such as the grabinator and the cakeinator really energise the gameplay and offer variety in the way you play the game.

The one issue I had with LittleBigPlanet 1 was the connectivity when playing online. You'll be pleased to know that the connections are very stable; although, I won't lie, I have been victim of a few hiccups here and there, but the improvement is gargantuan. You can play a level with 4 people quite easily.

But I would not recommend LittleBigPlanet 2 if you are only going to be playing the single player. The world of LittleBigPlanet lies beyond single player and in the realms of the community. The community of LittleBigPlanet 2 are a fantastic and very talented bunch. I would recommend you take a quick look at Youtube and you'll find some awe-inspiring gameplay footage of different levels that ordinary people have made.

The best part of all this is that you can play these levels very easily using the search buttons if you are looking for something specific or using the other options such as MM (Media Molecule) picks; it is a complete doddle. But if that's not enough for you and you have some ideas floating around in your head, head straight to the creation area and starting making your ideas a reality.

LittleBigPlanet 2 has unlimited replay value. Why? Well each day more and more levels are created with new and different twists to them. They're bigger and better than LittleBigPlanet 1 so expect some great things.

Basically, if you're 7, 18, 25 or 40+, this game is extremely enjoyable and will cater for all ages. Don't be fooled by the cute, cuddly sackboy. I very much hope to see all of you on LittleBigPlanet 2 in the near future, because it is a brilliant game for your PlayStation 3.

 This doesn't deserve a lower rating than four from ANYONE.

Motters' review should not be taken into consideration when buying this game, as it is very misleading. This is NOT a single player game, it should be bought purely for the online experience. If you don't have the internet, don't buy the game. There are three million existing levels from the first game, all the existing creation tools and more, plus the ability to create a variety of your own games; not just levels, GAMES. It has been out for a week and all ready there are some incredibly fun levels to play - with time this game will just get better and better. It is one of the most fun same-console multiplayer experiences you can have! The content available is practically LIMITLESS, so to give the game three stars and state that it's "too short" is absurd and frankly insulting to the immensely creative options available in this game.

My only complaint are the floaty controls, which are sometimes imprecise, but this is a minor trade off for the huge vat of quality content available, especially since the gameplay options can be tweaked to suit the games they are made for. The tutorials also take a while to get through if you want to create something good, however those dedicated should be able to make some brilliant levels. This five-star rating is coming from someone who doesn't like making levels - if you're creative, this game is even more perfect!

 Outstanding

This game is a massive improvement for lbp1 (which was already a masterpiece) and the new tools allow for so many possibiities. The story is a lot better. In lbp1 I didn't even get around to finishing the story for about a year, but I saw this one all the way through in one day. The level creator still requires you to be really creative, which is where som (like myself) will have a problem. Take me as an example, I can think creative but don't have the ability to actually draw out my thoughts or I can't work out the logics to making things in my levels. Luckily there are some good tutorials on youtube and other websites to help, so I'm a long way away from making a masterpiecs, but at least a now have a chance of getting there.
Even if creating isn't your cup of tea, the community levels are truly outstanding. For example, I cam across a perfect re-make of the origional donkey kong game and a micro machines racer. Some of the movies people make are also amazing. (speaking of movies, the game explains how to place cameras but I can't work out how to hit the "record" button or how to make an actual movie. if anybody has any advice please message me, my psn is ljhrocks).
Overall the game is amazing with a great, talented community. If you're like me you won't be creating any masterpieces anytime soon, but i still find it satisfying to create a level that may not be visually appealing but still very challenging and watching my friends suffer as they fail to beat it. I reccommend this game to all, if you don't buy it, it's your loss
