LittleBigPlanet: Game of the Year Edition
LittleBigPlanet gets re-released with new bonus content, but all of that content is already available online.
LittleBigPlanet is a great game - released last year it received an Award of Excellence in our review of the game and was a recommended game in our Holiday Gift Guide last year. In time for this year's holidays the game has been released in a Game of the Year edition. In addition to the the original game, this release includes eighteen bonus levels that were created by gamers since the game's original release and additional add-on content originally available for download such as new costumes for the game's hero, Sackboy.
If you already own the game, then there's no reason to go out and re-buy the game. You can download all of the extras, and even if you want to purchase all of the bonus content in the Game of the Year edition, it will cost you less than the purchase price of the game. If you haven't purchased the game before, then check out our review to see if it's for you ... and unless you simply don't like platform games you'll probably be quite happy with LittleBigPlanet. Keep in mind, though, that you can probably find the original version on the used game market for a lot less than the new game and still have plenty of money left over to buy the bonus content online.
