Earlier today, my copy of LittleBigPlanet 2 dropped through the door, waiting for me to get home and rip it open. Rip it open I did, and, well, I currently have mixed feelings.
I don’t plan on reviewing this game, nor do I expect my feelings to be taken as how I definitively feel towards the LittleBigPlanet.
I do not like the physics model in LittleBigPlanet 2. While I can get used to the floaty jumping, inertia when running, etc., the fact that everything is made of in-game ‘stuff’ that you can get stuck to momentarily, stuck behind, or even totally blocked on your path is incredibly frustrating.
On the other hand, the amount of imagination, ingenuity and pure childish glee contained within is completely unrivalled. Lord knows how they do it, but damn.
It’s just one of those games that makes you say “Hell yeah. Life. I’m living it and it’s awesome.”
