View Full Version : LBP1 DLC Levels - How well do they play in LBP2?

After reading about MM's backwards compatibility (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?44101-LittleBigPlanet-Backwards-Compatibility) post, I was wondering if anything broke or went wrong in any of the DLC levels, like these ones:
Metal Gear Solid Levels
Monsters Pack Level
History Pack Level
Pirates of the Carribean Levels
The game hasn't arrived yet (I'm expecting Thursday or Friday) but will anyone verify if these levels would still work? :confused:

All the levels should play the same, but some of them won't look good. I know at one point invisible gas was physically breaking certain levels, bit I believe it was fixed (don't quote me on that though).
Any LBP level that is dark and made use of lighting effects will look like a four year old made it, but any levels using medium to bright global light settings should be mostly unaffected. This is why the new lighting is only an issue for a certain percentage of creators... those if us who try to create mood and atmosphere through lighting and hazards. Hazards... also look completely different and mostly horrible now. Levels that relied heavily on gas are completely ugly now, so the Monster Kit Ghost Train looks pretty bad, but I don't have time to play through them as the Story levels are kind of distracting me. But I can assure you this will be the case with all levels making use of Gas, Lightning, and Fire Hazards. With gas especially, and in those that used a lot as an "invisible barrier" in the LBP engine, it simply isn't invisible anymore and looks ugly.
I know... it sucks, which is why I simply won't play many LBP levels anymore. Backwards compatibility should have been dropped all together and the two games treated as just that.... two separate games. :(
To sum up, lighting and hazard-heavy areas of levels now look
Amateurish at best.

Where is the metal gear solid level on my moon? I cannot find it, only the pirates. I bought it with LPB1 of course and imported my profile. Is it a backwards compatibility issue?
