I thought it was the case that Euripides' play was the first version of the story to represent Medea as killing her children (in older versions, they were still killed, but by the Angry Mob), which would make this play Darker and Edgier, rather than making the other versions bowdlerizations.

That's what Helen M. Hoover claims in her (YA'ish?) novel "The Dawn Palace", in the afterword.
