The 9 Best LittleBigPlanet 2 Levels Thus FarBy Jared Newman
There’s a certain thrill of the hunt that takes hold when searching for the best user-made levels in LittleBigPlanet 2. Finding something amazing to enjoy later with friends and family is like returning back to the cave with a week’s worth of wild boar — or so I imagine.
But sometimes, you don’t have time to go digging. Your party is restless, and they demand entertainment. Never fear. Although LittleBigPlanet 2 has only been available for a week, I’ve scrounged up nine great custom levels that’ll keep you and your friends occupied for hours.
Blast Radius by johnee
We’re sure to see plenty of space shooters with LittleBigPlanet 2′s support for controlled objects, but Blast Radius nails it with flashy graphics, multiple weapons and multiplayer support. The leaderboards are already hyper-competitive.
National Motocross by pate59
This modern-day version of Excitebike is short, but sweet, with plenty of tall jumps and a loop-de-loop at the end. For more of the same, check out pate59′s follow-up level, Rooftop Motocross.
Classic Zelda 1-1 by Bluetonberry
In the grand tradition of
ripping off paying homage to the classics, Bluetonberry’s Zelda clone hits all the right notes. It even has an inventory screen.
Galactic Base Defence by urbandevill
This simple tower defense game has four levels of increasing difficulty, with three types of upgradeable weapon towers. And it’s old-school, requiring you to conserve resources for the highest score.
Super LBP Fighter II Turbo by Hymanator
The action isn’t quite as fast as the real thing, but that means Super LBP Fighter II Turbo could be the mainstream fighter we’ve all been waiting for. You can throw a fireball by pressing down-to-forward and both punch buttons, but my favorite move is the double leg kick.
Rio Dance Off by Wexfordian
The main game in LittleBigPlanet 2 has a couple of mash-the-buttons levels, but this one adds a little flare with selectable characters and a colorful setting. Finally, a way to figure out who’s best at memorizing the PS3′s weird button scheme.
Mediterranean Street Racing by steve_big_guns
A top-down racer in the tradition of Super Sprint and Off-Road, Mediterranean Street Racing is simple but polished. It’ll scratch the racing itch until something more elaborate comes along.
Lunar Explorer by JusticeCovert
Funk the haters who downvoted this level. I’m a sucker for retro and JusticeCovert does justice to the Atari classic Lunar Lander. Yes, the rotational controls are touchy, as they should be. More of this, please.
Sackboy Basketball by Scumble373
There’s a different basketball game with high gravity that’s currently getting all the attention on LittleBigPlanet 2′s hot list. Ignore it and play Sackboy Basketball instead. Why is this one superior? Because the standard gravity allows you to smack players down for the steal, streetball style. It’s not griefing if it serves a purpose!
