Combine LittleBigPlanet 2 With Jurassic Park And This Is The Result [Video]

LittleBigPlanet 2 may be an “ancient” game at this point since it came out early last year, but the game is simply the gift that keeps on giving.  I don’t think anyone expected the game to produce as much goodness as it has done so far with people creating elaborate FPS mini-games or entirely original creations that attempt to tell a loose narrative similar to that of Journey.  The LBP2 community isn’t close to dying and I doubt such a thing will happen unless LBP3 is announced (which I have a feeling it won’t be) but in recent months not much has caught the eye of people.

Maybe it’s just because I haven’t played the game for a while, but there haven’t been too many “holy crap you need to watch/play this a.s.a.p.” LBP2 levels as there once used to be.  But that changes today with this terrific ode to the film Jurassic Park.  Since we’re still out of luck in receiving a good Jurassic Park game, this LBP2 rendition of JP1 is likely the best we’ll get for now until Universal Pictures gets some common sense and gives the JP license to someone who can do it justice.

Recreating the first encounter with the T-Rex in JP1, this LBP2 user level goes into great detail in nailing the mood of the level along with featuring some fine work on the smaller things like the JP logos scattered about and simply having good directing.  For all the children of the late 1980s such as myself who saw Jurassic Park when it first came out in 1993 I must say that you’re bound to be pleased as all the memorable parts from the T-Rex scene are hit including the slightly infamous bathroom scene featuring the lawyer.

This recreation of Jurassic Park via LBP2 kind of has me jonesing to play the game again and to see if anyone ever attempted to do an Inception level, a concept which nearly drove me mad in trying to figure out.
