    Incredibly cute adventure that will inspire, entertain and maybe even touch you. A must-have for the fans of platformers.

    With its expressive character and amazing environment depictions, Unravel excels in sending the player through a cascade of positive emotions. From its narrative to its core technical elements the game can only be described as art at its purest form. The perfection of simplicity.

    Amazing platformer nearly without any mistakes. Visually stunning, soulful, great, pleasant and with catchy music. Unravel is a pleasure to play no matter your genre preferences.

    Beautiful and moving jump & run with puzzles, solid game mechanics and a great hero.
  5. Yarny is one of the most adorable characters among the games that we played recently. Unravel has a beautiful environment but the gameplay mechanics are repeating themselves at the same time.

    Most of the time Yarny will be traversing beautiful locales, but you’ll also have to visit a chemical waste dump and a house overflowing with cockroaches (which will tear Yarny apart like a school of piranhas). At moments like these, all charm of the game totally disappears. [Issue#207, p.76]

    Unravel looks beautiful, but it's ultra-slick sheen with nothing much to say. Faux-emotional, if you will.

Send them to the creator and maybe the creator will give us an Unravel 2 with a twist. Other than that...this is my GAME OF THE YEAR FOR 2016! This game helped washed the taste out of my mouth on a plethora of broken games, Rise of the Tomb Raider game breaking bugs, fighting games (Street Fighter V, MKX XL and KI season 3) and etc. THANK YOU TO THOSE APART OF UNRAVEL!!!

    Unravel is one of the few or honestly speaking only adorable puzzle platform-er that I have played in my entire life . The levels of videoUnravel is one of the few or honestly speaking only adorable puzzle platform-er that I have played in my entire life . The levels of video games are mostly designed from critical thinking but over here in Unravel it is designed from heart and emotion . Unravel is not only a game rather a journey which teaches us that at the end of the day our most valuable asset is the sweet memories that we come across throughout our lives with loved ones and in this game this journey is experienced by holding the hands of the cute protagonist Yerny . The graphics and aesthetics are incredulously beautiful and well crafted . The environmental puzzles are so intricately designed that sometimes I had to check let's play videos to get pass some of them . Finally I would like to say that Unravel is a journey that you cannot afford to miss . Expand

I've enjoyed it but only because the ambience. If you're into small object manipulation (kinda like Little Big Planet, but much clunkier) it's the game for you. If you hope for a plot or a story, well, you might be disappointed too. You get some clichés at the end of each level. It is pretty and shiny and easy so you might consider buying it for your child (3-7) if you don't mind grinding through some annoying jumps (some youtubers just make a cut in their videos). Overall, solid 7, would play it with my daughter if I had one ;P Expand
