This is starting to sound a lot like Never Alone which also relied heavily on physics based platforming and was riddled with bugs to boot. Ugh. 

Is Unravel going to be the third title to complete the unholy trinity of 'crap platforming games'? (the other being LittleBigPlanet and Never Alone of course)

I'm on level 4 of this and I still haven't decided if I like it or not. On the one hand it looks incredible, and has a relaxed pace which it shares with the Trine games.

 

On the other, parts of it manage to be boring and frustrating at the same time, and the emotional plot stuff feels a bit glib.

 

If I'd waited and payed half what I did I'd probably be much better disposed towards it, but I'll keep playing regardless.

 

Also those gnats on level 3 can fuck right off.

What? Are you saying there have only ever been 3 shit platform games?

This is brilliant, absolutely loving it.  Have done the first 8 levels so far.  I am not moving onto the next level until I have found all the secrets and completed it in one go without dyeing.

 

I can't say I have experienced any issues with the platforming or physics so far either

 

Its just a charming game for me

Been playing this all day and really enjoying it. Up to level 8 as well (got all the secrets on each level but I'm not good enough to complete each level without dying!) There's been one or two slightly frustrating parts but overall its just a really nice game.

 

Playing it on Xbox and I think it looks fantastic.

This I agree with, especially as I didn't realise until finishing the level that you could shoo them away with the yarn! :lol:

I've finished this now. It's an odd game really, very low-octane and it doesn't really work either as a platformer or a puzzle game.

 

I wish they'd found more things to do with the yarn trail, but you've pretty much seen all the game's tricks by level 3 and after that it was just the nice atmosphere and beautiful visuals that kept me playing. Even Limbo, which was three hours long, felt the need to change things up a bit now and again.

 

Also, the last level was such a blatant...

 

Spoiler

...Journey...

 

...rip-off/homage that I can't believe they did it. It's even used in the same story context!

I was concerned after mentions of LBP style floatyness (Always hated the movement in those games) but finished today and very much up for replays to platinum it. The visuals and general mood throughout was wonderful and I love the gentle / laid back nature of it. Price was spot on for a game like this. Hope they did well out of it. Such passion projects are a bit of a rarity and I'll happily encourage them.

Just grabbed this on EA Access, oh my word it looks nice. Really enjoying playing it with the kids. It's so slow, it's actually something they can all help with by pointing out where I should go next.

 

Probably haven't got far enough yet to hit the platforming foibles others have noted, but lovely/10 so far.
