Pros: Excellent multiplayer design. Little Big Planet games have always revolved around 1-4 player games, whether it's online or local.
Cons: Not as good a platformer as the first game. They focused too much on adding extra gizmos and gadgets. Although they did a good job with that, they lost the core platforming elements that made the first game so much fun. As for the online, the rating system is gone, so you can't search for highly ...
Summary: I won't comment on the game since it's been covered extensively, but regarding the extras in the Collector's Edition, my opinion is that they aren't worth the extra cost over just buying the game by itself.
Doesn't measure up to original -- need to see what community levels have in store.

Summary: When compared to LBP1, the game lacks a soul. Most of the story levels seem little more than demos of the new features. One can only hope the community can exceed the new features and restore the beauty and magic of the first version. It is a non-trivial task.
difficult to rate this...five for the game, three for the CE

Summary: obviously there are numberable reviews for this product so i will keep this short. the game has been exhaustively covered, so i will focus on the collector's edition extras. the game ends are fairly cheap; nothing i would have gone out of my way to purchase outright. the sackboy plush is..
Summary: A solid if derivative platformer with a beautiful aesthetic, and a great editor: not a huge leapo from its predecessor, it will be interesting to see if this one can keep a large community over a long period.
Summary: The game has changed a lot since the first one. Lots to do and create. It is the most fun game I've played in a while. The graphics shine and the frame rate does not drop a bit. A must have game for any LBP fan. The collectors edition on the other hand....a huge disappointment.

Summary: So, I think those of us who have played the first littlebigplanet all know that this game is going to be perfect, but one question still remains... a question of identity: are you a collector or just another standard consumer?
