Unravel Two will help you feel that fragile but precious thread once again. In its initial seven levels and numerous additional challenge stages, you will appreciate that delicate little piece of yarn. There will be moments when your instincts help you progress forward, and other times where you just need to feel the weight of that truss as it plummets onto the ground while you think of how to tackle that seemingly impossible challenge.

The team at Coldwood Interactive have took what was already a delightful platforming experience and improved it ten-fold thanks to the addition of a second character. Swinging your way through Unravel Two’s impressive levels with a friend is just a blast, whilst the improved level design and tighter controls just add to the experience. Unravel Two was a really pleasant surprise when it was revealed at E3 2018, and after playing it through to its conclusion, it’s actually exceeded my already high expectations. Whether playing on your own or with a trusty co-op partner, Unravel Two is simply a stunning adventure that you don’t want to miss out on.

Unravel 2 is more than just a puzzle game. It's a journey of working with someone, sometimes that someone being yourself, and going on a journey that will change you. It's a marvel how the developers evoked such feeling out of this slick combination of gameplay and visual storytelling, even one without words. Like me, it will leave you speechless at the end.

Unravel Two is everything a sequel should be. 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.

Although the controls can get a little too fiddly for my liking in the latter half of the game, an issue that the first game also suffered, Unravel Two refines the platforming elements to near-perfection and incorporates its puzzles in a way that doesn't feel half as intrusive as it did in Coldwood Interactive's last effort.

Unlike its predecessor, Unravel Two now has the gameplay to match the game's gorgeous visuals. For the low price of £18/$20, players are getting crazy value for their money. Sure, you could make the argument that the game is short, but at no point does ColdWood Interactive bore you with filler sections that are impossible to enjoy. Instead, the developers have put together a concise selection of levels that can be played in one sitting or broken up into multiple sessions  Do yourself a favour and pick up Unravel Two, it's one of the best local cooperative games I've played in years.

While its core story might not have the emotional punch of the original, Unravel Two improves upon the original in every other respect. The platforming is more responsive and demanding, while the puzzles are far more inventive and satisfying to solve, which is largely due to the excellent implementation of a second character and co-op.

It somewhat goes without saying, but Unravel Two feels like the organic evolution of the franchise. The introduction of cooperative mechanics proved to be just enough change to keep things fresh, while still preserving what made the original so special. Weaving the matured puzzle design in amongst the already stunning art style produces a visual patchwork quilt that is unlike anything else on the market. If you can set aside the odd storytelling decisions and the occasional platforming quirk, Yarny's newest quest is one you won't want to miss.

Unravel Two is a great platform game. It presents cooperative mechanics that are excellent in two players, but that can be very well used in the single-player mode. The campaign can be relatively simple, but there are challenges that will require effort from the player(s). The downside is the few stages and the story that the game wants to tell that is not very interesting.

Just like its director speaking onstage at E3 2015, the game isn’t perfect. Certain aspects of the controls could be better and playing the game solo can feel repetitive and a bit of a drag at times. Unravel Two, however, makes up for its faults with its earnest disposition and likable charm. Co-op play especially enhances the experience, turning it into a fun and hilarious exercise even when you're failing miserably. If you’re a puzzle-platformer fan who's looking for a game to enjoy with friends, your kids or a significant other, Unravel Two is one needle that you’ll definitely want to thread.

Yarny is back for another lovely adventure trip through Swedish landscapes, this time accompanied by a second playable character. This results in some deep puzzles, great challenge rooms, and, bundled with the more precise controls this time around, a better game than the first one, whether you're playing alone or with a friend - but also one that's over just a bit too quickly.

Overall, Unravel 2 is an adequate follow up to 2016's indie darling. It hosts a plethora of new puzzles that force players to think, but without making them go mad. Too many checkpoints may turn off players looking for a genuine challenge, though. The all new dynamic of co-op really gives a jolt of energy to this game; Without that new component I'm afraid Unravel 2 would've just felt like a level expansion. Those that really dug the first Unravel will love what its sequel has to offer.

If you're a genre fan, Unravel Two would be a very good choice, even more so if you have someone to enjoy its puzzles with via co-op. While some of its choices didn't quite hit the bullseye –  much of the folk music clashes with the on-screen action – it offers a solid amount of high-quality content. And again, Unravel Two will leave you thinking, which is another plus.
