Starting yesterday, game journalists began posting their final reviews of LittleBigPlanet 2. So far, the reactions have been fantastic! Gaming web sites have given LBP2 extremely high marks and flattering compliments, including IGN (9/10, Editor’s Choice), Game Informer (9.5/10), 1UP (A-), GamePro (5/5), Joystiq (5/5), WIRED Geek Dad (no score, just plenty of praise), and MTV Multiplayer (ditto)—just to name a few!
With so much excitement swirling around LittleBigPlanet 2’s January 18th release exclusively on the PS3, we also wanted to share a new trailer highlighting the many adventures Sackboy will face. Check it out above!
