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.
