Critic Reviews for Grow Up!


7.8 / 10.0

Grow Up doesn't feel terribly different from Grow Home other than its larger world, but its main achievement is to strengthen some of its predecessor's weak points. The drive to climb to the top of everything remains, but here it's improved on with new methods of climbing and flying, and the option to toss down plants that serve as tools for any situation. The camera sometimes complicates this, but not enough to bury the charm of the original.

This quickfire follow-up to one of 2015's real gems doesn't make any big steps forward, but it's a charmer all the same.

A superb remix of Grow Home that gives BUD a bigger sandbox to play in, at the expense of some challenge.

Some of the new features could’ve done with pruning, but Ubisoft’s willingness to nurture indie style experiments continues to bear fruit.

Grow Up's frustrating physics and controls conflict with its charming presentation.

Drifting over the polygonal landscape looking for crystals is still a peaceful good time, if you can overlook a few flaws.

Those are the issues that are easy to pin down. But really, Grow Up suffers from all the downsides of not giving the player structure. It just feels like less of a problem here because the developer is wholly transparent about that fact. Grow Up is as Ubisoft as a Ubisoft game can get. It may be a lot of bloat, but at least the game's comfortable enough to carry it proudly.

Grow Up is a videogame that is perfect for our eyes, but not for our controllers. Its mechanics are rough and difficult to get used to. However, this is a great sequel for Grow Home.
