    Still playing it! Finished the main game the other day and have 53% of trophies. My most completed retail game.

    Now going through trying to be a completist, get all the items and ace all the levels. Not looking forward to Boomtown or The Bunker for that. Incidentally, I did The Bunker on the 4th try... yes its old school platform hardness but a bit of practice nails it. If you want to go through a game without dying, go back to FFX!

    I can actually do most of The Bunker without effort, the Big Wheel Of Death is hard, the bit following it is hard too. Big question marks on how I will Ace that.

    May go back into creation mode instead.

    Its FANTASTIC. And FUCK ME I LOL'd at the scene right at the end of the pack... hilarious and very acute awareness from Media Molecule. I reckon this pack has only been made since the game has gone live because of whats at the end.

    Doesn't take too much to belt through, of course there is the challenge of being able to collect everything, ace it and do all the trophies.

    I CANNOT WAIT for the FINAL FANTASY add on.

    The game is insanely good, it's trully a pity that it "only" sold like a milllion and a half copies. If only half the globe wasn't brainwashed by the whole Wii campaign...

    Anyway, I'm shocked at the amount of brilliant user made levels that can be found online. :o That and add-ons (like the MGS one) have the potential to make this game huge and endless.

    This game was PANTS! Sorry guys, I know you all love it! I really wanted to like it too. I sold it for £33 though so that wasn't too bad. I kept that little sackboy figurine though.

    I tried it on the 31st at my father's and I loved it! I am in the process of moving out though so I don't know if I'll be buying it.

    This is NOT fun when you are over someones house and three of the players have played it loads already, and they are zapping stickers and pulling faces, and you are just following around going where they tell you.

    My only fun was TRYING to hit people with my frying pan, but that was very hit and miss (literally).

    I felt a bit out of place as well when I first played (with my littlesister :shy:) but I quickly got the hang of it. Must be my superior intelligence. Better luck next time, Diddy sweets.

    well you can't have it all EASY.

    Remember this was but 2 days of faffing about on the beta with only the tools that you get from The Garden!

    I keep planning to do a MEGA LEVEL, I will settle down and do that at some point.

    Anyone still play this much or does it fade after the first flurry of excitment? It looks like quite a fiddle to get a decent level going - and the controls don't seem to be the best for the main game. "Floaty" is the main criticism I keep seeing.

    I've gone back to the single player mode recently and I realised how much fun it is. But only in short bursts, I understand that a lot of the replayability comes from building levels but I'm just not interested in that.

    They hadn't sorted the controls out - you get used to the "floaty" gravity of the characters jumping, and once you get your head around jumping backwards and forwards when you don't intend to, it's manageable.

    But it ain't the saviour of the PS3 by a long shot. Nor is it a classic.

    On my first playthrough I felt it was a classic with an immense amount of replayability but I haven't touched it in a good few months.

    I hadn't touched it for months but tried it again this week and LOVED it. There are TONS of brilliant user made levels out there. I just can't wait for the Water DLC now!

    And yes, I do think it will be considered a PS3 classic and I trully find it one of the best games ever made. It's just so uplifting and gorgeous.

    Here are a bunch of good levels

    And aside from that:

    "The Miracle of Life" by poms
    "Zephyr Valley" by mrsupercomputer (all his levels are good)
    GruntosUK has a few good levels.
    "Up & Away In Sky Town" by jump_button
    Jackofcourse has a few good levels, too.
    "Lafarge's request" by Keldur

    All of those are pretty good.

    Best if you search "@username". If you found a level you like I'd recommend clicking on the option that shows you all levels by the author or go through his hearted level list.



    Some more good creators:
    Nuclearfish (Especially "Clocksworkx")
    BasketSnake
    wexfordian
