I recently got to the chance to play Little Big Planet 2 at Sony’s recent Beta Room event in the UK and I can sum up my experience with one single word – “WOW”. Check out the video above to see my reactions and thoughts on what I believe is a very strong contender for GOTY 2010.
Just to ellaborate on a couple of the points I raise in the video I really do think that LBP2 is going to be something amazing. I was one of those people who thought that while the first LBP was certainly cool and unique it wasnt in the same platforming league as the classic Mario or Sonic games. That opinion has completely changed with what I saw of LBP2. There are so many cool new things that have been added to the basic gameplay, such as new abilities & enviroments, that the mind verily doth boggle at what kind of mayhem the player community will create once they get their hands on these tools.
Now unfortunatley Sony did not allow us to shoot any live footage or take any pictures of the game in motion but you can check out some of the new features in the gameplay trailer below.
