View Full Version : What is the Best looking story level

09-27-2009, 11:22 AM
It doesn't have to be the best level. Throw gameplay out of the window for a second. What is the most visually appealing media molecule level out there. I'd love to see what most people think.
For me it is probably Serpent Shrine from my memory. What's yours?

09-27-2009, 02:21 PM
I'd say either Elephant Temple or Meerkat Kingdom! Elephant temple is pretty simple but i love the visuals :)

09-27-2009, 02:41 PM
I was going to say Meerkat Kingdom but now you mention it Serpent Shrine is really good as well.

Those are my 2 favourites anyway :p

09-27-2009, 02:57 PM
i personally wowed at the mines

09-27-2009, 06:35 PM
I really liked Serpentine shrine for all the detail and decorations. Excellent level visually :)

09-27-2009, 06:42 PM
I think it's the first level in the Gardens, and the worst would be that survival challenge in the Wilderness, I think it's called "Rotor Tubes".

09-27-2009, 07:50 PM
either meerkat kingdom, dancers court or first steps.

09-27-2009, 08:00 PM
serpant shrine, the first level of the weddings, all wilderness levels and the first savanaah level, but if i had to pick one it would be terrible omnis volcano :p

09-27-2009, 08:10 PM
I think that all of The Temple themed levels looked fantastic, but there wasn't a bad one in the bunch. :)

09-27-2009, 09:53 PM
first level of the wedding and the temples were nice

09-27-2009, 10:31 PM
Terrible Oni's Volcano is pretty good-looking, I think. Best would probably be the first Islands level, forget the name. It really pulls of the dojo-esque atmosphere really well.

10-02-2009, 10:43 PM
How can you like the visuals of the Elephant Temple? It uses only two materials and no stickers or decorations.

I have to say Meerkat is the best looking.

10-02-2009, 11:29 PM
I think the Swinging Safari one is the best. But then again I love the color orange. The giraffes are just so cool.
It's also the one that relaxes me the most because of the totally cool African music. I forget what it's called.

10-03-2009, 12:03 AM
I know the one thanatos, it's called.... it's called... I forgot too! : (

I personally like the Dancers Court and some parts of The Frozen Tundra, although i've seen LBPC people make better Ice-themed levels.

10-03-2009, 02:54 AM
I really enjoyed the Wedding Reception and Boom Town.

10-03-2009, 03:00 AM
I guess it really depends on who you are. Many people will like the same levels, but probably not for the same reasons... :grr:


10-03-2009, 12:31 PM
Actually i change my mind. The Wedding is 100% the best.

10-04-2009, 01:01 AM
I think the Introduction level was the most brilliant and beautiful level, but then again I am not sure that it really counts as a level.

10-04-2009, 03:46 AM
I really enjoyed the futuristic feel of The Collector. A cliche, yes, seeing as it's the final boss, but I really enjoyed the detail put into it. Next to that, it would be The Serpent Shrine and the stage with all the mines. :D

10-04-2009, 03:52 AM
The great magicians palace.

10-04-2009, 06:53 PM
Terrible Oni's Volcano and Serpent Shrine are my personal favorites even though these levels were a pain in the butt to ace. XP

10-04-2009, 07:54 PM
This is hard, they all look fantastic! I guess I do quite like the look of The Magicians Palace I quite enjoy all the moody colours of that level like the purple and the blue. That level only stands out a tiny bit to me though. :)

10-05-2009, 03:36 AM
either The frozen tundra, or Skate to victory

10-06-2009, 12:41 AM
Oni's Volcano, because of the lava in the background

10-06-2009, 12:42 AM
The dog was kind of annoying, but I loved the music and atmosphere of The Darkness. Of course, I am Thanatos. (Check Bulfinch's if you don't get the reference)

10-06-2009, 01:11 AM
Low Rider is the best because it was full of stuff.

10-17-2009, 08:59 PM
I don't know if I'm allowed o say this, but my favorite were the MGS pack levels. All of them showed a great eye for what materials go together. (Except the VR ones. Don't like them.) My favorite regular story ones are the gardens.

10-18-2009, 09:28 AM
Yes all the downloadable content levels count too.
I think the best mgs level was Act 3- The Mission.
All the middle eastern ruins was done perfectly by the mm guys and or girls.
I did like VR Training though because I like the way it looks if you look around your screen a bit.

10-18-2009, 04:35 PM

Most beautiful level ever.

10-24-2009, 10:37 AM
serpent shrine i would say is my main favourite but i also like the skuldozer level lol

10-24-2009, 09:27 PM
I particularly like the Dancer's court...As well as all the Meerkat Kingdom...

10-25-2009, 09:13 AM
Meerkat Kingdom and Magician's Palace were nice.

11-18-2009, 09:58 PM
The first part of burning forest is quite good but my favourite looking level has to be serpent shrine. Except when you're playing it online and then its really laggy.

11-19-2009, 05:55 PM
I like the Magicians palace aswell,
and serpent shrine,
and The terrible Ohi's volcano!

11-23-2009, 02:11 AM
i like the darkness, i think it has a cool effect to it, but i dont know what it is. I think it was what i dont like about it is i cant get all the prizes:mad:

11-29-2009, 06:57 PM
I dont kno what u guys are talking about i like the Gardens the best
its so peaceful....and has great music....let alone its an easy lvl!

11-29-2009, 07:00 PM
I think that everyone is forgetting the Intro! :)

11-29-2009, 08:02 PM
The Intro. Definately.

12-01-2009, 04:56 AM
I loved the look of the gardens levels, the visuals in those levels were absolute eye candy. When I think little big planet, I think of the gardens. A good variety of stickers and materials are used, providing some diversity that is absent on some other themed levels in the story. The savanna and canyons visuals were great also, but the gardens just has that flare that makes it my favorite theme. (Visuals wise! :))

12-01-2009, 06:04 PM
The gardens are a bit under decorated, deliberatly I think, to not overwhelm new players instantly and to try and to instill the ethos of 'I could make this'.

I think the levels don't start getting pretty until The Burning Forest but the pique of perty for me will probably be The Dancers Court.

EDIT: Or Boom Town *drools*

12-09-2009, 06:03 PM
A tie between the Bunker and the Terrible Oni's Volcano.

12-09-2009, 08:15 PM
The Introduction and Meerkat Kingdom levels. :P I go play those for inspiration.

12-09-2009, 11:18 PM
I liked the Final level in the Wilderness. If not that, Definitely The Serpent Shrine.

12-09-2009, 11:27 PM
I've posted in this thread before, but opinions change.

1. The first Metropolis level, "Lowrider".
2. The second, "Get A Grip", or third, "Skate to Victory" level of the Gardens.
3. The Monster Pack, but I'm not so sure about that one.

12-10-2009, 04:07 AM
Looking back it's kinda hard to tell, almost all the Story levels are a bit outdated. If I had to pick, it would probably be the Magician's Palace, and even then it would have lots of competition from many community levels.

12-11-2009, 03:31 AM
i would say boom town, the whole western look was quite incredible, not to mention one of the most fun levels too.

12-19-2009, 07:56 AM
I like the the Wilderness, the intro, and Meerkat. I didn't care for the serpent shrine to much. The moving snakes were kind of klunky.

12-20-2009, 06:06 PM
Serpent Shrine was beautiful, as were all the Savannah levels.

However, all the Temple levels were stunning. All the motion and characters that made up the levels were amazing and the mechanics behind all the puzzles didn't only make for a visually amazing section, it was also really fun to play.

12-20-2009, 10:55 PM
Speaking of which, I played an incredible level that was very like The Magician's Palace in style, but I think it was an overall better level, if slightly more difficult.
By A creator called.... can't remember. I'll edit tomorrow and You all should check it out. It has very few plays.

Also glad to see a thread of mine going somewhere :p

12-21-2009, 04:50 AM
I can't choose, but you know LBP should be an awareness for an ad to save the Earth or something because every time I finish story mode, I couldn't stop but think that people out there are destroying our one and only home.

02-03-2010, 08:24 AM
the island levels. they just have a great atmosphere and are in my opinion the best levels. they're quite easy as well.

The Gentleman
02-07-2010, 01:25 PM
The wilderness, for reasons unkown to me. Maybe I'm just a cold person. I love the atmosphere as well with the wailing banshee wind and the foggy abyss.

02-08-2010, 01:24 AM
I was most impressed with the Savannah levels. The giraffes are my absolute favorite creations by Mm.

02-13-2010, 12:39 AM
Hmm, to me its probably the wedding levels, I love the use of lighting n stuff used in them.

02-13-2010, 02:27 AM
I like the Intro, the last stage and the Temples. They all looked really good.

07-01-2010, 08:53 PM
the bunker its cool and complex

Night Angel
07-02-2010, 01:44 AM
The Introduction level! Simplicity is always beautiful!

Just kidding...Probably Serpent Shrine or the level you have to save the Creator Curators from the cages (I forget what it's called).

07-02-2010, 02:16 AM
It's too hard to separate the gameplay for me. :/

07-02-2010, 02:42 AM
Hmmm... Probably one of the Canyons levels. They were the most visually appealing to me. I've always enjoyed mines... :p

07-02-2010, 03:17 AM
Meerkat kingdom, first steps, and all of the mgs levels.

07-02-2010, 05:25 PM
It's obviously me..

I mean the Islands, of course. :)

PS: I you ever wonder why i'm so good looking.. L'orEal.

Because i'm worth it. ;)

07-07-2010, 07:42 AM
All of the Indian levels are beyond fantastic. Well, all of the story levels are, but those ones stand out to me.

07-07-2010, 02:56 PM
I just replayed them all with my sister because we were kinda bored. I'd have to say The Dancer's Court. Or the Serpent Shrine.

07-08-2010, 03:23 PM
I liked The Dancers Court and the Subway.

07-11-2010, 06:00 AM
SPLINE RIDER, its a minigame though... Still beast! :P

Photon Man54
07-13-2010, 02:30 AM
idk... the good ones are boom town, dancers court, the first weding level, swing safary... lots of them are good looking to me
