    Pixeljunk Monsters is easily one of the most addictive co-op games available in the console market. It seamlessly blends the ease of simple controls with devilishly "just one more try" addictive gameplay. I can guarantee that you'll spend a very many hours attempting to "rainbow" every level! For those who enjoy a little more competition, your scores can uploaded via the PSN to a Global Leaderboard to show off and gives it that extra layer. A welcome addition to any gamers collection, whether hard core or casual. Well done Pixeljunk! Expand

    The core PixelJunk Monsters experience is unchanged in Encore, and the expansion really just provides more of the same content to enjoy. If that's alright with you, you certainly won't miss your six dollars.
  3. For the $6 that PixelJunk Monsters Encore will cost to buy, you get a bunch of new levels, some gameplay improvements, some new music, and the satisfaction that your PixelJunk Monsters fun can stay alive for a while longer.
