Like its predecessor, LittleBigPlanet 2 is a platform/puzzle game which, while following through the story and levels, also allows you to design your own and publish them online. The story's playthrough is not particularly long - a few hours at most. But then you can go online and play the millions of levels created by others around the world, ranging from poorly made to fantastic.
In the story, an interdimensional vacuum cleaner appears out of nowhere and begins sucking up everything in sight. Sackboy is saved by Larry Da Vinci, the leader of a group known as The Alliance. After passing several tests, Sackboy is ready to help the Alliance and battle the evil Negativitron.
If you've played the previous LittleBigPlanet game, than you know what to expect as far as difficulty and time consumption. While the majority of the trophies in the sequel are slightly easier than the first, the method is the same - ace all the levels, collect all the prize bubbles, design your own level, have people play it, play others online.
NOTE: The Online servers in the Japanese region closed in July 2016, which means the online trophies - and therefore the Platinum - is no longer obtainable in Japan.
As with the previous game, it's recommended that you first play through the levels in order to get a feel for the game, collect some prize bubbles which you can use in your creations, and gather ideas for your own game.
Once you've had enough of the story and wish to get into the community/create stuff, we recommend creating your own level, first. That way, when you start playing the community levels, you can post a request that the same player check out yours. Without advertising, it may be difficult to gather the 50 people required to play your level for the 50 Unique Players trophy, no matter how good it may be.
Once you have your level made, it's time to go online and play others. Aside from the various other challenge trophies, you'll need to play at least 75 levels to get the Play 75 Community Levels trophy. For the 160 Yays or Boos trophy, you needn't play the level - simply hit start on the level and select either the happy or sad sackboy.
First off, you'll need a walkthrough to collect all the prize bubbles. So far, IGN has the best which includes videos and images:
