Review: LittleBigPlanet 2
by Jim Sterling

Media Molecule once said that LittleBigPlanet would never get a sequel, that it was something the studio wouldn't ever want to do. Whatever changed between then and now, LittleBigPlanet got the second installment that the more cynical among us always thought was inevitable. 

The trouble with a sequel to a game like LittleBigPlanet is that it's difficult to imagine what more you could do. LittleBigPlanet was more than a game; it was a breathtaking toolset of new ideas and fresh content. Following that up with enough content to justify a sequel was always going to be tough. 

Your mileage may vary as to whether or not you feel Media Molecule got away with it.

Media Molecule launches LittleBigPlanet community site

The bigger issue with user-fueled games like LittleBigPlanet usually isn't the lack of creativity; rather, it's having a system that makes the good content rise to the top and everything else fall to the murky depths. The jus...

Wolfenstein 3D level for LittleBigPlanet 2 is, uh, wow

It's funny how collectively, we always rush to see familiar recreations of beloved properties (Level 1-1, Green Hill Zone, etc.) in user-created content rather than inventive, new ideas. Why play as some no-name character in...

LittleBigPlanet 2 looks so good HNNNNG
by Jim Sterling

I'm not what one could call a "graphics whore" -- I love Wii games, and Deadly Premonition is one of my favorite games of all time. However, when a game looks as gorgeous as LittleBigPlanet 2, screw it, I'm going to bust a nut. 

This latest trailer shows off the grappling hook and is well worth checking out. I'm quite eager to see the full game in action, so if Sony would like to hurry up and send us some copies, we wouldn't say no!
