    Unravel is the best puzzle-platformer since Journey, and the best side-scrolling one since LIMBO.

    A poetic and emotional journey, capable of charming even non-gamers thanks to its realistic approach to visuals and puzzles. Definitely an experience worth doing.

    In an industry that can sometimes feel cold and sterile, Unravel is a welcome injection of warmth and love. The insanely cute Yarny, the emotional story, and the vibrant worlds all radiate a serenity that can really change a person's outlook on life itself.

    Unravel is a romantic and funny platform game in which emotions and beauty are tied tightly with simplicity.

    As a metaphor for the ties that bind a family together, Yarny and Unravel are exceptional; beautiful, and invoking a quiet contemplation, It's just hard not to wish it was a better game.

    Unravel is an ode to cherished memories, but it doesn't create any of its own. It is gorgeous to look at and listen to, but its repetitive, sometimes laborious and frustrating, puzzles undermine the game's relaxed tone without offering much in the way of a challenge.

    Amazing graphic, gameplay, atmosphere (didn't really like to music that much), this is an amazing little gem.
