LittleBigPlanet 2

Following on from the original LittleBigPlanet, the sequel builds on its success by bringing more tools for you to create your own levels with, so that gamers can essentially create whole games by themselves and share them online. Even if you just want to play through the story mode, though, the levels created by Media Molecule are brilliant fun and can be played with up to four players both locally and online.

Ready Up Junior: Max

Tell us about the game.

Max: The game’s all about Sackboy and some people he meets through his adventure. He’s trying to stop the Negativatron that turns Sackbots into evil sackbots. To stop it he must go throughout the land and get advice from the people he meets along the way as to how to stop it. They’ve added in cutscenes since the last game. You can use bounce pads and grappling hooks, the Grabinator and the Creatinator, a very cool helmet that fires out lots of different types of things.

There’s also now a music sequencer where you can make your own tunes and so many other things. I couldn’t really tell you them all. People have added their own levels online and are including all the new things in them so they are quite different from in LittleBigPlanet.

What was the best bit about the game?

Max: I think the Creatinator is best because it fires really cool things. You can choose anything to fire out, even pretend poo. You can make a poo object, then capture it. Stephen Fry says “Don’t just make an object and leave it in your level, capture it!” Once it’s captured you tweek the Creatinator, click the object box which will show all the object you’ve collected including ones you’ve captured like your poo. So that becomes equipable. (Is ‘equipable’ even a word, Mummy?) Then you choose that to be fired out your Creatinator helmet.

What was the worst bit about the game?

Max: I don’t think there’s anything at all that I don’t like. Sometimes the bosses in levels are a bit hard but that doesn’t mean I don’t like those bits still.

What are your final thoughts on the game?

Max: It’s very very fun. I think lots of other people would like to play it. Oh and it’s much better than the last game. Before this game I think I probably thought that LittleBigPlanet was the best game in the world but this one definitely is.

    Pretend poo, love it! I enjoyed the first LittleBigPlanet, but hearing the second is just as good is fantastic. Well done Max!
