If you haven't played since Red and Blue, or even Gold and Silver, I think you should definitely give this game a chance. Enough has changed over the years to give you a different experience. If you've already played through Diamond and Pearl, it all depends on your level of Pokémania whether the changes are enough to make Platinum worth it. Obviously, if you simply don't enjoy the Pokémon series, this game isn't going to change your mind. Conversely, if you can't get enough of the little guys, go buy this game now, if only to have the chance to embark on a new adventure in Sinnoh with a wider variety of Pokémon!"
