Not bad but not great also
22 November 2017 | by 851222See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

"Unravel" (2016) is a very beautifully looking game which has great music and visuals. The story in here is a pretty much as how you interpret itself. Controls were pretty good but boy oh boy does this game is frustrating sometimes. Basically its a 2D game with some puzzles, but they are very straightforward. And although this game looks like pretty easy, i died A LOT.

Overall, is not bad game to play it once. It looks beautiful and there is something sad in its theme and touching. But it fells in its puzzles and sometimes very frustrating game play. Not bad game overall.
