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
