    "LBP’s limited 3D – which enables Sackboy to move between three separate 2D layers – you’ll be just as confused here." - I actually liked that mechanic. I think it added just enough depth, be it so simple, to liven up the game. Having to dodge obstacles in those planes was more entertaining to me then the alternative of a single plane. I think what made this game so good was the simplicity of the platforming combined with the cleverness of the developing team.

    Well this is a Day 1 buy I just hope the other ps3 exclusives that come out this year wont make me poor. But they probably will.

    My only issue with LittleBigPlanet, when all is said and done, is just a way for the creative to just find ways to blatantly ripoff every game in existence so they can say that every game is on the PS3.

    i REALLY want this game, but since there are far too many games i want this year, i'll get this in 2012...when it's the Game of the Year Edition!

    I was looking forward to this but I remembered I got bored of the first one after I made a rocket dick with exploding balls. Maybe I just don't have the creativity

    Did not like first game doubt i will like this any better. Would rather pull out the NES and play a proper platform game series. Most overrated franchise in video game history.

    @garnsr: That's a good question. Generally, the publishers tell us how early we can post our reviews (that's called a press embargo), which usually tends to be anywhere from a day to a week in advance. For whatever reason, Sony tends to send out review code about a month in advance, and then sets its embargoes at 2-4 weeks before release.

    I prefer my games pre-made, thanks. The first one bored me to tears, which is a shame because on paper it should be one of my favorite games ever. This one looks to be woefully more of the same.
