    Unravel Two is just a pleasure to play. There is enough personality, charm, challenge, and life in this game to deem it a far better improvement over the original. The two-player complexity was a tough sell, but well worth the buy once you get into it.

    A whole lot of charm packed into a tiny little title, Unravel Two is an easy recommend for both fans of adventure titles and puzzle/platformers with cutesy protagonists.

    Unravel Two is equally as good as the emotionally pleasing original. The platforming may still be spotty, and some of the puzzles may not present players with much difficulty, but at least frustration doesn't set in because of viable attach points hiding in plain sight. The story may not be as powerful as the original, but the addition of co-op play makes up for that and offers new experiences. In the end, Unravel Two is a great title for platforming fans.

    Unravel Two is a fairly compact jaunt with only seven levels and some optional challenges for those who want them, but I found it to be the perfect length for what it is. The runtime offers a satisfying array of puzzles that function equally as well with one player as they do for two, it’s stunning to look at, a pleasure to listen to, and although they might not be ranked alongside other videogame luminaries, I adore yarnies. I’m not sure if a third game is in the cards considering how quickly Unravel Two was forgotten, but if so, I’d be more than happy to go on an adventure with them again.

    Unravel Two changes the formula in ways it improves the game, but diminishes the strong atmosphere. So it's a win-lose situation. But fear not, it is still a great game -AND you can enjoy it with a friend, in an all new co-op mode. It deserves the third installment, fair and square.

    Unravel blossoms in co-op, which additionally alleviates one of game’s problems – again interactive elements in the environment are often hard to spot (especially under pressure), so second pair of eyes helps. Other than co-op it’s more of the same (sometimes I even wondered if I saw a particular level before), but still I enjoyed it more than the original game, even if the first Unravel’s visuals were more impressive when it came out.

    Charming and beautiful, Unravel Two does have some bright spots. However, those spots are few and far between thanks to some clunky platforming and dull puzzles throughout.

    I was so excited when EA announced on Saturday that there was going to be a new Unravel and even more excited when I got to buy it straightI was so excited when EA announced on Saturday that there was going to be a new Unravel and even more excited when I got to buy it straight away. It is an absolutely beautiful game, as good as if not better than the first. The platforming is improved in my opinion, the puzzles are more varied, the tutorial more in-depth (OK maybe a little long) - and the spark that guides you is perfect. BUT the best thing is I get to play this with my 8 year old daughter. With Unravel 1 we played separately - each finishing the whole game in separate play sessions. In Unravel 2 we play together, sometimes we race each other, but all of the time we figure the puzzles out together, deciding what role each of us will play in solving the puzzle - and we laugh at the situations we get ourselves into. And we help each other, I am not as good as her at the side to side jumping - so often she grabs me on my back. It's super fun. The game can be played like that all the way through but we prefer to play in co-op. We love the music and the settings to. And now we are on the bonus levels. it is a wonderful game. Expand

    Nice surprise and a sweet game for $20. Didn’t finish the first game but did finish this one and games are meant to be finished. Lots ofNice surprise and a sweet game for $20. Didn’t finish the first game but did finish this one and games are meant to be finished. Lots of challenges still to do (some are insane). Controls, puzzles and mechanics are much better this time around and coop design is clever. played on my own and then with my son - anything that can drag him away from Fortnite is a winner! Music, atmosphere and art a breath of fresh swedish air. Expand

I likedI've played this entirely in local coop mode and we had a lot of fun. It's a beautiful game; we loved the calm, mysterious atmosphere. I liked the controls better than in Unravel 1. It's mostly an gamepad-action game, but there is also a fair amount of thinking needed; I found the balance to be just right. The biggest drawback of this game is that it's quite short (around 5h of play). But for 10$ I gave it's a bargain. Expand
