Very excellent value,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: LittleBigPlanet 2 Special Edition Move Bundle - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
Price-wise, as many have noted, this is a very good value at the $80 price mark, as it comes with the eye and both the navigation and move controllers. It doesn't come with the charge stand, but you can still charge these controllers using a normal USB cable to the PS3. The navigation controller uses far less energy than the move controller and rarely needs recharging (I think it gets ~30 hours of play between charges versus 10 for the move), so you rarely will run into a moment when both are totally dead anyway (and the regular dualshock 3 can sub in for the navigation controller while it charges).
The game itself is great and comes with a ridiculous amount of DLC. I owned the original LBP, and I can honestly say this version is significantly improved with a major increase in variation. There are new types of levels, versus modes, race levels, etc. and there are new "toys" that your sack boy can play with, new types of platform mechanics, etc. I'm normally hesitant to buy sequels because they tend to add very little despite their high cost, but I will say LBP 2 does add enough to merit the buy even if you owned the original. If you enjoyed the original, you'll really enjoy this one. That said, the filmic, "story" component of the game is a bit much and tedious and I didn't find it to be a useful addition (although I do think kids will like it); I preferred hopping level to level right away. Not a big deal though.
Overall, a very good game that will appeal to all ages and most types of gamers, even those that tend to play more "hardcore" games. Not as strictly casual, if you are comparing this bundle to say, a Sports Champion bundle.
