    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

It stays true to the original but adds co-op which allows you to play and experiment together as you find your path through the beautiful environments. Unravel was already a very enjoyable game, but with co-op feeling as natural in this game as it does, Unravel Two is a delightful playground for fans of puzzle platformers. Expand

For me the story has lost it's charm. It is told with less ability and is difficult to relate to. Also the children's pictures are not interesting. The challenge levels annoys me a lot. They are short, doesn't offer anything interesting. It was a total waste of development times. Most of the game now is about swinging and playing the alpinist. A lot of wall to wall jumping. The last chapter is completely at odd with the rest of the game. Suddenly you get a new power and magic areal support. Not much emotions are translate into the game. The music was excellent in the first game. This time it's a mix bag of good and boring. To be fair, the last two chapters have excellent soundtracks. The graphics are amazing, the sounds is very good. You can't fault this developer on it's skill, but I think the story just wasn't that great. In fact, I still don't know what the story was about and you can resume it in two phrases. I give it a 68%. Expand
