Hey all! Lately, I've been kind of bored and interested in reviewing others' levels! Post the level you would like me to review like this:

Level: *********
PSN: ********

This is how I will review levels.

Well, I will usually review as I go, so you will have to be ready for some intense criticizing! I will be focusing on Gameplay, Visuals, Creativity, Originality and Replayability.

You will receive 1-5 stars on each of those things and then I will average it out... if it turns out to be something like 3.5 stars, I will round down.

EDIT: Sorry all but lately I have been far too busy to continue reviewing! :grr: I will be busy for about a month or so so maybe I will continue reviewing on christmas!(?)

Cheers.

PSN: Coxy224

Thanks :D

Level: IceMaiden and the FireFox
PSN: Coxy224

At first glance this is a pretty level. Nice choice of materials, they really mesh well and I haven't seen many people use them together :) One thing with the environment that I didn't like much was the way the environment seemed to be floating. The ground beneath where I stand is empty and yet the background of the level is dark. This is a minor flaw, so don't worry :)

The next few parts are simple but very effective. Easy platforming executed very well. One thing that I didn't like was the balloon part. It started to pick up A LOT of speed and made it very hard to dodge that last spiky part. The next platforming sections are fun and easy.

Ok boss. Not bad but it seems unorganized sometimes. It is hard to decipher what phase it is on or if it even has a phase! lol

Ok time to get down to business.

Gameplay: :star::star::star::star: -- Fairly simple but fun.
Visuals: :star::star::star::star: -- New, simple but effective.
Creativity: :star::star::star: Wasn't mind blowing but some parts were pretty creative.
Originality: :star::star: -- The visuals were basically the most original thing.
Replayability: :star::star::star: -- Will probably play this from time to time just for some fun :D

Overall: :star::star::star: Worth playing. Nice job! :D

Level: Dreamscape PSN: bonner123

Ahh Dreamscape! I've played this level before, but playing it again won't hurt ;)

Ok, first glance. A completely new style filled with Pale-like materials and City in The Sky theme. The materials mesh AMAZINGLY. You clearly put a lot of time into this and it is easily displayed with the great visuals and style. No flaws I can really see here. The one thing that seems funny to me are the characters xD They are extremely plain and boring yet they fit perfectly and I love them :D

The first gameplay bits feel very much like Pale. Of course this level has many new features and platforming that I have never seen before, which is great. So much jumping and swinging action that I don't even want to get into it xD

Story is pretty creative! It's simple but still very clever and I can't wait for 'Nightmare'!!!

Ok here goes!

Gameplay: :star::star::star::star::star: -- Solid, occasionally mind-blowing fun!
Visuals: :star::star::star::star: -- Effective but this style cannot be made in crazy detail.
Creativity: :star::star::star::star::star: -- The story and theme was awesome.
Originality: :star::star::star::star::star: -- Almost all of the platforming was new-ish, fun and the theme was completely fresh.
Replayability: :star::star::star::star::star: -- An EPIC level deserves to be played over and over and over!

Overall: :star::star::star::star::star: I'm crapping my pants waiting for Nightmare :D

Level: City in the Sky PSN: bonner123

...The second of bonner123 levels for now xD

First glance is decent. Some materials don't seem fit. The style is very fresh however! Now walking through the level I see what is actually a City in the Sky. You've got some interesting features in this level but a lot of the gameplay I have seen before.

The style reminds me of some Assassin's Creed levels because of the way everything is displayed! :)

Well, I'm at the boss. I've played this level before so I know what to do now but the first time I played I was completely clueless as to what to do. Call me stupid but I didn't like figuring it out for nearly 10 minutes xD

Now the moment you have been waiting for:

Gameplay: :star::star::star: -- Fun but not the greatest.
Visuals: :star::star::star: -- Nice style and theme but some materials don't mesh and the Sack cutouts weren't made well.
Creativity: :star::star::star: -- The idea was creative but the way it was executed wasn't amazing.
Originality: :star::star::star::star: -- I've seen a lot of these gameplay features before but the idea was good and the boss was new.
Replayability: :star::star::star::star: -- This is one of the levels that I often play when looking for some inspiring idea. It once inspired me to continue to create :)

Overall: :star::star::star: Decent and worth playing, great job :p

Level: Red and White Obstacle Course PSN: bonner123

Finally something new xD No more black and white!

Not the materials I would expect in a level like this! lol reminded me of vilter a bit! :D Uhm, mind explaining the SLS10 reference? Was it out of good heart or...

The music choices were decent and of course I choice the disco one. Uhh I just died? >_< I see what to do now, but I'm sure plenty of people wouldn't bother replaying it lol. Oh no now I need to keep playing this to beat it and review it! xD

Oh my god, I keep dying! Yarg this is extremely annoying! LOL Oh my god!
Ok i just died again at the jetpack xD This is really bothering me.

Woah just beat it! That was a pain in the A**!!

Gameplay: :star::star::star: If it was difficult, than it was good I guess.
Visuals: :star::star: Plain, not very new.
Creativity: :star: It's just a one life survival course without much creativity so, yeah.
Originality: :star: I'll give 5 stars to the guy/gal who made the very first survival/obstacle course in LBP.
Replayability: :star::star::star::star::star: -- It's difficult, and is a survival level. How can it possibly not have replayability? xD

Overall: :star::star: Worth playing if you want a decent obstacle course.

Hello!

PSN: MrsSpookyBuz
Level: Dragon Rider

I was wondering if you'd like to review my original Dragon Rider level. It's one of my older levels, but I've never put it up for review before so I'd be interested to see what you make of it.

Thanks very much for your time. :)

Level: Trouble in Halloween Town PSN: xDante95x

Upon first glance the level is dark and spooky. The environment lacks in detail but doesn't look bad at all. I liked the pumpkins! They were very... delicious :kz: The moon following me is cool but also kinda pointless. Don't see a reason for that. The rest of the visuals were similar although they got progressively better throughout.

Next few gameplay bits are solid. Nice Idea with the bats and the coffin thing, that was coolio.

When I grabbed the guys 'head that hurts', it was very boring. Could have had a snapping sound or something, all there was was a dissolve. :/

Gameplay: :star::star: -- The gameplay was solid but not very fun and exciting.
Visuals: :star::star::star: -- Some parts were very mediocre but others were decent.
Creativity: :star::star: -- It's a very simple idea that didn't do much for me.
Originality: :star::star: -- It was a NBC level so you can't expect me to give you full credit for everything.
Replayability: :star::star::star: -- 3 stars because I liked the way you interpreted NBC and I love that movie so i will play this again:kz:

Overall: :star::star: I know you are capable of fixing some minor boring spots so don't worry. :)

Level: Dragon Rider PSN: MrsSpookyBuz

Glad to see you here! :)

Decent intro, but not very interesting. at first glance this level is very snowy and the visuals are pretty mediocre. OooOOOooOH! Nice characters though! :D The level is mostly made up of 3 materials making it look boring. What really makes this level look good are the characters and the EPIC dragon!

I liked the extinguishing of the flames, that was creative!

The platforming is slow paced and requires patience which I don't have lol But I still find it fun to play through this. The part with all of those walls closing and opening was awesome! *clunk clunk* x 40

Gameplay: :star::star::star: -- Not much platforming, but when there was it was pretty good.
Visuals: -- :star::star::star: -- Mediocre but the characters = win.
Creativity: :star::star::star::star: The level as a whole was pretty creative and filled with some nice additions!
Originality: :star::star::star::star: -- The level in general was pretty darn original, and it all seemed fresh to me ;)
Replayability: :star::star::star: I'll probably look back at this level to play with friends to inspire them, and myself, to create more.

Overall: :star::star::star: Worth playing, solid level. :)

Thanks Fancy! I did this level in a "record time", so it's normal that it's not good. I asked you that because i want to know how i was able to reproduce the atmosphere of NBC. I liked the city and the NPC, but the rest was bad. Now i'm working on real project, and i can spend as much time as i need. If you want, i just released my contraption for the CC08, you can give it a look, it's called CC08 Atomic Ride, it's only a contraption so it doesn't need all the votes. If you have time, give it a look,thanks

Level: Pale PSN: bonner123

Gosh darnit bonner I am going to kill you. ;)

The level has an AMAZING feel to it. Plain, but relaxing and full of goodness! The materials do mesh but occasionally don't seem to fit.

The platforming in this level is excellent! Going across this chubby cross things is a lot of fun too :) The rest of the level has the same amount of fun! This level has basically just as much gameplay fun as dreamscape! Yay!

Don't want to keep rambling on as I think I've said enough about the level right up there :)

Gameplay: :star::star::star::star::star: -- Fun, fresh, awesome. Period.
Visuals: :star::star::star::star: -- Some materials didn't mesh but otherwise i loved the style.
Creativity: :star::star::star::star: -- The style and theme was creative!
Originality: :star::star::star::star::star: -- The level is one of a kind and extremely inspiring to me.
Replayability: :star::star::star::star: -- I don't often play it, but whenever I have friends/family over I show them it and occasionally claim it as my own! LOL jk

Overall: :star::star::star::star: Great level, great creator :p

Level Name:SIREN: The Lost World [Episode 3- Holes]
PSN: Exalted_Yawn

When I played it I selected the Hard difficulty, because I'm hardcore :kz:

The level has a nice spooky atmosphere to it. Makes me feel like I'm there. The way the camera zooms in on the player makes it feel a lot more intense and makes it more enjoyable IMO. The ladder was a ****in' great idea! :D

xD that part where everything went red scared the sh*t outta me! LOL

I can ramble on forever but I'll get to the chase.

Gameplay: :star::star::star: -- Not much platforming, more backtracking which I found fun, but occasionally annoying!
Visuals: :star::star::star::star: -- Some parts were great others lacked detail.
Creativity: :star::star::star::star::star: -- This was one hell of a creative level let me tell ya that!
Originality: :star::star::star::star: Pretty original but not too MIND BLOWINGLY ORIGINAL since I've seen horror levels similar to this.
Replayability: :star::star::star: It is annoying for me to back track so much, but I had a great time playing this! :D

Overall: :star::star::star::star: Great job! Hope to see even more from you! :D

CC08 ATOMIC RIDE

Seeing as how this is just a contraption contest entry, I won't full review it but rather state my opinion on it.

The idea was great, it was executed good, but I didn't do much in the level except wait, grab and spin until I blew up. Other wise great job!

You made a new record time in reviews XD Wow thanks a lot! If you have fun making review, i'm going to help you XD You can try a quite-good level imade 5-6 months ago: the link of the showcase thread is in the sign, and the title is long and i'm writing with the PSP ( XD ). If you want, try it, but it's long ;) Thanks for the 2 reviews! Oh, and the review for this level isn't important, but you did that very quickly so i'll be happy to receive some feedbacks :)
