Little Big Planet 2 on PS3

Little Big Planet 2 is a Adventuring game available on the PS3. It can be played in Cooperative Singleplayer modes.

Little Big Planet 2 is a Adventuring game. Adventure games are enjoyed for two reasons: they provide enemy encounters that require tactics and strategy to conquor, and they create a fantasy world in which to explore and adventure.

Little Big Planet 2 can be played in a Cooperative mode. Cooperative Multiplayer games provide an experience that is played symaltaneously by multiple players. Unlike the simple arena competitive multiplayer style games where players try to kill the most enemies, true co-operative games are designed to take a group of players through a campaign experience together. This will involve sections where players have to work together to proceed - either from the sheer difficulty as in Halo 3 on 360 or by the design of levels such as LittleBigPlanet on PS3.

Little Big Planet 2 can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.

Tech Gamer review Sat, 19 Mar 2011

Little Big Planet 2 turns engineering into something understandable and electronics into an entertaining game. It's a technical achievement that schools and colleges should really be making more use of.

Little Big Planet 2 builds upon the delightful original by providing more of everything while keeping its homemade feel with sackcloth, sponge and cardboard. The story mode gameplay rewards cooperative play that inevitably leads to mini feuds and "co-opetition" as you accidentally grab hold of fellow players and drop them into pits of burning lava.

Family Gamer review Mon, 10 May 2010

Little Big Planet's central platform experience, is in fact a gate way into a world where you can create you own video games. Using the simply, playful Sackboy character - and given enough commitment and time - players can create, play and share their own creations with an online community.

Platform games task you with getting from point A to point B. The world you journey through is usually based on different levels, and populated with enemies, switches and lifts to be negotiated. As you work through each level you pick up various collectibles that accrue score, special abilities and access to hidden areas.

Eclectic Gamer review Sun, 31 May 2009

Little Big Planet is a tough nut to crack, but well worth it. Even boyfriend assistance didn't get me there this time, I had to make myself sit down and put the work in - so glad I did though. Amongst my eclectic pick and mix gaming experiences this is easily the most creative.

I watched the TV ads with Stephen Fry narrating, and fell in love with the little Sack people almost instantly. I'm suck a sucker for anything that raises remotely maternal instincts.

Returning Gamer review Sat, 13 Dec 2008

Just when we thought it was all tanks, machine guns and zombies, from out of the blue there appears in our midst a game quite different to those on general release currently. First announced in 2007 and released in 2008, Media Molecule brings to us Little Big Planet. The wait is finally over and the game is here so lets take a look at what it has to offer.

LittleBigPlanet consists of a standard platform gamer and a level creation tool. The platform gaming levels are spread across the planet and you gradually traverse the globe, hence the planet in LittleBigPlanet. One or more players can plough through these levels by controlling the incredibly endearing little fella known as Sackboy.
