Tearaway Unfolded Reviews
Tearaway Unfolded is fun and fizzes with ideas, even though some of the original's charm has been lost in translation.
Visual improvement is usually the only real reason to pick up remastered versions of old games, but Unfolded goes one better. The fact it looks better is merely an attractive bonus. Even if you've already played the original game through to completion, it's absolutely worth playing it again in this incarnation.
Though Tearaway Unfolded does wonders with paper, it sometimes leaves you feeling flat.
A noble effort to recreate one of the PS Vita's best games on a home console, but the end result never feels quite as elegant or organic as the original.
This is a great family game, and it's an opportunity for people who don't have a Vita to see why it's a favorite
It's just plain fun, and while it might overstay its welcome, Tearaway Unfolded is a wonderful excuse to jump back into one of the most creatively rich platformers in recent memory.
A lovely game with a delightful story, this platform puzzler has very high audio-visual appeal. It's also really fun to play - although it does have areas where poor camera choices and slightly awkward controls can make the proceedings frustrating.
Tearaway Unfolded improves upon the original by adding innovative controls, a handy companion app, augmented reality features via the PS Camera, and a plethora of new content including expended environments with new quests. With this much whimsical content, it's going to be hard to tear away from my TV.
Tearaway was a game deserving of a much greater audience than the one that it got on the PS Vita, but Unfolded goes a long way beyond simply trying to port that game across to the PS4. It reimagines many of the ways you interact with the game's papercraft world and it expands and builds upon some of the ideas in the handheld version, yet never strays too far from what was already a wonderful experience.
While the controls can be a little awkward at times, Tearaway Unfolded is a delightful package overall. Its distinctive look is matched by equally creative gameplay that has you interacting with the world and leaving your mark in ways quite unlike anything else. If you missed it the first time, don't let it slip by again.
The best Vita game just became one of the best PS4 games. Utterly essential, buy this, so it can finally get the love it so richly deserves.
Tearaway Unfolded takes the enjoyable platformer from the PS Vita and makes it even better on the PS4. It might lose a little bit of its luster in the transition, mostly due to the two year timespan in between, but fans of Media Molecule's gaming style will find a lot to love here.
Unfolded ranks as one of the best remasters released, exhibiting a clear sense of love of the property that simply isn't seen when many older games arrive on new systems.
[T]he poor camera, lackluster new levels and story beats, and overall larger size of Unfolded makes it a lesser experience than it is on the Vita. It's a semi-remake that fails to match all the charm of the original.
Tearaway Unfolded has an inspired art style and memorable music, but both the gameplay and the story are rather undemanding.
Sadly, the pacing issues just grind the smiles away and unravel an otherwise elegant experience. Were it not for the dragging of the feet in later chapters, Tearaway Unfolded would be a must-have PS4 release. As it stands, it's a damn lovely game that nonetheless doesn't need to be clamored for. Likable, yet not as lovable as it deserves to be.
Not the same as the Vita game but not a sequel either, Unfolded is sweet, refreshing fun mixed with a hint of disappointment
Tearaway: Unfolded is full of the same enchanting charm and clever design found in the original, and the PlayStation 4 gives it a new stage to captivate both returning and new audiences alike.
Puzzles are remixed, new areas added, and a link to a mobile app provides intriguing new features. Superb music and delightful visual design round out an unmissable package.
Media Molecule's papercraft world made the jump from PS Vita to PlayStation 4 in style.
