Man, haven't done a post in a while, 'bout time.
Me and Takeshi got a chance too pick up some pretty awesome games; Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Little Big Planet 2, which are both freaking great
I haven't played MvC3 much as I've been playing LBP2 more so I'll talk about MvC3 in my next post, so let's get this going, shall we?
P.S: This is my first review thing so my apologies if it ruined your day.
This game is amazing
. When you start the game, you go through the normal introduction as in the first, go through the easy levels such as the new grappling levels, which are crazy fun, grappling feels great and is really fun when bringing your friends down with you when you die, heh. Around world 2-3 the game starts to get harder. The controls feel a lot tighter and more fit then so in the first LBP. Slapping is easier, and there's even a trophy for slapping multiple people. (wether or not that's in the first one it's still epic.)
Community levels upgraded by like, 10,000. I've spent a ton of time playing them, they're amazing, a couple of you steamy nerds even made Destructoid levels, which we're awesome. The versus mode levels are amazing and kudos to those of you who made them, you're awesome
. I'm pretty horrible at creating levels but I'm sure that's because I haven't taken enough time too go through all the tutorials, I will one day, however. One
Also, CUSTOMIZATION IS MAXED OUT TO THE MAX SCOVILLE!
Not only can you carry over all of you're costumes, stickers, and decorations over from LBP1 over to LBP2, but there's also a TON of new crap yet to be discovered. I think this game deserves a prize for how much work is put into it, honestly. Not only is there tons and tons and tons of built-in costumes and whatnot, but there's even more DLC for crap like that, and it's awesome
. If you already have this game or plan on picking it up, get a PSN card with it, you'll need
The Music is amazing
I can not
get over how good the music in LBP games are. Me and Dre we're talking about this yesterday for a while, listening too the eargasmic
music in this awesome game. I'm going to list some of my favourite songs, only because I love them so much.
To name a few, look around, there are tons, and their all beautiful
. I need too buy the soundtrack for both, sit down, and just listen too them.
The Graphics are kind-of-ish updated
There's not that much too say about the visuals, else then that they obviously updated them, textures look more, texturey, if that's a word.
I guess I should like, talk more about the story, as that's kind of a big part of a decent game, I guess.
During this oh so adventurous story mode you'll meet interesting characters such as Larry Da Vinci, and others members of "The Alliance", you're team of other oddball's like yourself. Freaks.
However up until the final world the game is quite easy, the entire first world gives you unlimited lives, which I guess is only fair towards people who are new too LBP, but whatever, I just wish that after the first world they made it a little more challenging.
Online is great, as always. Barely any lag, and when there is, it doesn't really effect you whatsoever. Unless you're connection sucks, then you're screwed.
This has one of the best soundtracks I've ever heard, it's really great and if you get a chance listen too some of it. Or all of it. The story mode is sure a pleaser, but many may find it short and easy. The community levels have only gotten better, with the extra tools LBP2 gives you it makes making levels better then ever. The customization is also insanely awesome, as always. With the amount of customization tools you have for your sackboy, you can create nearly any character. Now Niero just needs to send Media Molecule and Sony an email for a Mr. Destructoid outfit. This game will have you playing for days on end even after you've beaten everything.
I definitely recommend picking this up.
LASTING APPEAL: 9.5
Also, before I forget, remember to add me, Dre, and Takeshi on PSN.
