  • Summary: In Unravel 2, you play as two Yarnys (tiny magical creatures made of yarn and joined by a thread) in a puzzle-platforming adventure. Run, jump, swing, and solve your way through a world of natural beauty and shadowy dangers, either on your own or with a friend in local co-op.

    Fans wanted Unravel Two on Switch and they got it. While it took some patience, the wait was certainly worth it. [Issue #39 – May/June 2019, p. 30]

    Some games are simply a pleasure to play from beginning to end, and Unravel Two is one of them. It’s a masterfully crafted adventure that keeps you glued to your screen, and melts your heart as the credits roll.

    Unravel Two lands on Nintendo Switch with the same magic it had a year ago. A beautiful game that believes in itself to offer a great coop experience with really inspired artistic and level design.

    Although I would’ve liked more challenge in the campaign, I still had fun with Unravel Two right up until the very end. Yarny is an adorable character that stole my heart right from the beginning, and the unique puzzles that come from both characters being literally strung together made for a fresh spin on co-op puzzle solving. I feel like I missed out on something special by playing by myself, and I think that if you get the opportunity you should definitely play the whole campaign with a friend.

    Unravel Two is a short but sweet little adventure that makes interesting use of its two yarn-crafted characters. While playing the game alone is still an enjoyable option, its focus on light puzzling is definitely more fun when tackled with another player. A visually impressive and charming treat.

    Despite the beautiful and fluent gameplay, the game has its flaws on the Switch.

    Unravel Two lands on Switch losing a little bit of its visual quality, but gaining the possibility of share its gameplay in any place and moment (portable mode included). It doesn't have new content, so if you played it when it was launched last year, you won't find anything new. It's the very same charming platform game with physics puzzles.

Don't expect a Donkey Kong in terms of difficulty (still decent challenges at times), but the engaging cooperation and aesthetics should be more than enough to keep you coming back. Expand

It's not something I would typically seek out on my own, but I bought it to play through with my girlfriend who is not a gamer at all and we had a great time with it. Highly recommended to anyone looking for an engaging cooperative game that does not have a high skill requirement. The controls are smooth and fun, and very easy to pick up on after the first few levels. Expand

    I’m playing this game with my sister and it is just such a good game. The music is so atmospheric and the game mechanics are so clever.

It's very charming, with smooth and satisfying platforming that is challenging enough at times while never feeling too frustrating. It's a fantastic two player platforming experience, so if you have a significant other, friend, or family member to play with, I bet you'll have an enjoyable time. It's probably not the right game to pick up if you're planning to play through it by yourself, though. It's meant to be enjoyed by two people in couch co-op, not by one person in singleplayer mode.

Unfortunately the story of the sequel can't really attract attention with the great plot, but nevertheless you as a player will be well entertained. This is ensured by the good graphic performance and the excellent sound. Furthermore the controls are again easy to learn and the common puzzling and tossing definitely belongs to the highlights of "Unravel Two". So you should also like to use the switch version of the game.

    i played this in two-player mode with a friend. this game is not worth it at full price. it's really only worth it if it's about $5. what Ii played this in two-player mode with a friend. this game is not worth it at full price. it's really only worth it if it's about $5. what I didn't like:
    - very hard to tell what items and features are interactable and what aren't, design/visuals are very confusing where what seems to be foreground objects turn out to be in the background and vice versa. in some levels there were fire spirit things that chase after you and kill you but most of the time, it's quite hard to see them until they're right there on top of you. i wish the game made it more obvious. it was super frustrating
    - game is very inconsistent with what happens when you do stuff. e.g. in some areas, if you touch water you drown. in other areas, you can actually swim in it. or sometimes, you can stand on a revolving gear. other times, it kills you if you just touch it lol
    - perspective issues. my friend and i played it on a big TV but our avatars were very tiny and we felt like we had to squint to see everything on the screen
    - not gonna lie, most of the levels were boring or tedious/convoluted/repetitive
    - the story/plot was boring and hard to follow

    it's disappointing because i really liked the first one and i love the soundtrack of this game
