The 2005 game includes alternate characters that give you extra modes of play.

What I've heard is that the alternate characters were designed in-house at FFG instead of by Knizia. Some people really like them, others just stick with the originals, if you get the 2005 (or later) edition then you have your choice.

Also, the 2002 edition was in a small box (slightly larger than the standard size of the Kosmos two player line), but the 2005 was in the big square box instead.

This is the Deluxe Edition. It was originally printed in a medium sized box (Ticket to Ride size). The character pieces were double-sided and could flip in their stands between games. There were also twice as many once-per-game cards (four for each side). The additional characters and cards were developed by FFG (CTP and Eric Lang), not by Reiner.

The edition in your link was the original version. The characters were not double-sided (so there were only nine per side rather than eighteen) and were in fact not intended to be removed from the stands. The box was a smaller box (think Blue Moon or Jambo, if you've seen either of those), and a smaller board consequently.

The 2013 version from FFG (out of stock at the publisher) returned to a smaller box with a smaller board, but contains all of the gameplay additions of the deluxe edition, and so it is included in this BGG entry. Although the pieces are smaller, their identifiers are still reversible for alternate units, with details printed on associated character cards. There are also the extra "Special Cards" usable once per game in addition to the basic combat cards for each player.

And the 2013 release dropped "Deluxe" from the title, hence why the BGG listings now have the same title.
You can think of it as a new edition, but it's expanded the game enough to be considered a separate entry.
