    Tiny Brains is the definition of accessibility with depth, and especially for new Playstation 4 owners, it’s a great justification for stocking up on DualShock 4 controllers.

    Looking for a worthwhile on-the-couch multiplayer game? Tiny Brains delivers with its fun puzzle-based story mode and score-driven challenge modes.

    Problems aside, Tiny Brains is an undeniably enjoyable experience. While it may not amaze you, it’ll definitely be worth your time if you and a few friends are looking to have a go at a co-op puzzle experience that isn’t extremely demanding.

    Engaging cooperative puzzles and local co-op are reasons to consider an otherwise indistinct game that's over way too quickly.

    Tiny Brains is short, messy, and relies heavily on reusing its ideas, but it's also a funny and clever little game that can delight as much as dismay.

    Some good ideas cannot rescue all these Tiny Brains from their cruel destiny: this is a poor puzzle game with shallow visuals and a lack of personality.

    Multiplayer puzzle games aren’t exactly plentiful on the PS4 right now, but that fact doesn’t make Tiny Brains more appealing. Its short, easy and unimaginative. The Worms and soccer-inspired mini game diversions don’t help its cause as a game to break out with friends, either. Even if this sort of couch co-op experience is your jam, I can’t recommend it.

    This is a great game. A true coop experience in which being a douche is penalized! It's a refreshing change of pace in today's game market. The game is easy to get into, yet it is surprisingly deep as you get better and more experienced. A great mix of old school fast twitch playing and straight up puzzle-solving. Expand

    Having a blast playing this game! The more fun I had since the Nintendo era!! The gameplay is innovative, simple and yet extremely deep. I will most likely spend a lot of my time playing this game during christmas! Expand

    Awesome COOP game! Gameplay is easy to pick up and perfect for a game night. Plus, since the main campaign is around 3 hours long, it's even possible to complete it with friends in a single sitting if ou want to keep playing, the other modes are still pretty fun tough. If you have a Vita, it's also pretty useful to be able to use it as an extra controller, since it's hard to gather 4 controllers for couch cooop.. SONY, make a Tiny Brains bundle NOW! Expand

    So this game isn't out yet and there are dislikes for this game.
    At the time of this submission, there are no user reviews for any other
    version. Why? Because there is blatant hatred for the PS4. Of course, this plagues the Xbox One section too. Basically, the defense force for both fanbases is in full effect Expand

    When looking at puzzle games it's hard not to compare things to Portal (which in my opinion is the BEST puzzle game in recent years), so while this isn't on par with Portal, it is a solid puzzle game that is made even better when playing on a couch with a friend. The graphics of this games don't really show off everything the PS4 can do, but it is still a pretty game that looks great on your HDTV. There are occasions where I feel like I was failing a challenge due to poor controls, but most of the time it was due to not utilizing the "Tiny Brains" powers appropriatly. Also the game adjusts the level design to accomodate if you are playing one player or multiplayer which is nice.

    On a whole I'd say try the demo, and if it interests you $15.99 on with a Playstation plus account isn't a bad price for a few hours of co-op fun.

    i don't really like the premise of this game personally. experimented on animals get superpowers? that's kind of f'd up if you think about it. for such a rarely talked about subject, it's kind of like saying getting raped so much made someone a sexual icon. go look up vivisection and see the hell that it really is..

    just kind of sad to see experimenting on animals made into an ok thing like this, it's extremely f'd up in reality. i guess so is murder and whatnot, but that's often discussed a lot more. this is a subject that otherwise really just goes under the rug.
