Britney’s Toxic level was one of the most unexpected and enjoyable gaming experiences in my life.

That Bruno Mars one was fire too

Nothing tops Psychedelic Porn Crumpets.

I love that one. I'm not sure the name of anotherone I loved but it was in the water world and had a groovy beat and the bouncnebads bounced to the beat of the song.

Uptown funk got all the praise cause it's at the beginning. But the toxic one is easily the best

I haven’t gotten to that one yet, but now I need to go back and play this again

It think it is a bonus level that you can find by using the world map to travel to the 4th world from the 2nd world.

One of my favorites.

This sounds like the Rayman music levels I loved those

ID: gy3htsj

It's 2000000 times better. If you haven't played this, you really can't understand. One of the coolest gaming experience. Sumo knocked it out of the stadium on these levels.

And to be fair, the whole game is very enjoyable and puts a smile on your face in a lot of places. 🙂

Imo the ones in Rayman were much better

Cool when the pandemics over and I can couch coop again I'll prob pick it up .. I bought Rayman on 4 consoles purely because I love the music levels so much.

ID: gy5vpog

I mean. The Rayman ones are also phenomenal. They are different experiences but great ones.

This game is seriously great. Except the last Knitted Trial trophy. Fuck this trophy

ID: gy3nmhv

It's not too bad if you slow down and take your time. At the very end, there are a bunch of clocks that you can pick up that will knock your time down. I got it in a hair under 8 minutes by rushing through the first 1/3, and then taking my time from the crabs until the end. It's very doable.

Of course I say this after spending ~12 hours going balls-to-the-wall trying to cut every corner and go as fast as sackingly possible...

Only took me ~2 hours once I learned patience.

There are 2 things I want to fully collect in Sackboy - the special orbs hidden throughout, and the Knitted Knight trials.

I think I have 1 or 2 trials left, then the grand finale... the finale is 8 minutes long? Please tell me it's not like a boss rush mode of all the other trials...

ID: gy4c5eq

Thanks for advice I will give it a shot!

ID: gy40ry3

I'm sure you've had a look at some videos, but I put together a few things I learned and ended up getting the trophy, and then again for my wife. Here's my playthrough of it:

Put this damn game on sale . 🙂

ID: gy429al

Oh wow the game is still at its launch price! I would've expected this to go on sale before 2021.

ID: gy49v1z

well the good news is that means its still selling well, or they would have lowered the price

ID: gy4hu87

If you’re in the US.

Gamefly has a used game sale.

$29.99 +10% off code = $27 shipped + tax.

ID: gy558fl

Dammit I would but it seems you have to rent it first then you can keep for 30, can't outright buy it like you usually can

Favorite levels were the music ones, wish there were more.

7 : Anonymous2021/05/14 13:54 ID: gy3lv9u

These levels were a huge surprise and had me smiling the entire time.

This game deserves so much more recognition.

Hearing big wild as one of the first levels I knew this soundtrack would be great. The whole game did not disappoint at all and to match the levels with the sound was done brilliantly.

ID: gy59i77

I couldn't believe I was hearing big wild! Soo good

fly me to the moon was my personal favourite

10 : Anonymous2021/05/14 17:26 ID: gy4faux

Now please let it go on sale!!

Best game I have played in ages. The kids have fallen in love with Sackboy too. It looks and plays gorgeous on ps5

Honestly the music levels weren't that good imo. Not as good as the ones in Rayman:Legends anyway

ID: gy5vfip

I mean. Comparing them is a bit unfair. The music levels of rayman are basically a rhythm game. An absolute amazing rhythm game.

One of my favorite games of 2020. Such an awesome experience all around. Its every bit as good as a 3D mario game and that is high praise.

This was such a blast to play with my siblings during the holidays, seriously hoping for a sequel.
