Probably more fun for younger gamers
The game has a very unique look. That's its main positive trait. The gameplay isn't especially interesting. You mostly just walk from place to place, with the game occasionally forcing you to stop and fight some scrap enemies. It will also ask you make things by drawing on the touch pad, but it's difficult to draw with any precision. But unlike in Little Big Planet, nothing you create affects the gameplay in any way. It's all just decoration. Sometimes there are some puzzles to solve, but they tend to be pretty simple. The game does get more challenging later on though. But the situations in which I found myself dying were frustrating because it felt like the jumping mechanics and/or the camera angle were the cause of death. Overall, I ended up being quite disappointed with this game. The look is very unique, and the ways you interact with the game through the often ignored special features of the PS4 controller can be fun, at least at first. The novelty wears off quickly. Still, it makes me sad that most PS4 games ignore the fact that the PS4 controller has a touch pad and fairly accurate motion controls built in. Gravity Rush made use of the motion controls as well, as a secondary means of aiming, which came in quite handy when you couldn't take your right thumb off the buttons to use the right stick. So yeah, if anything, Tearaway is a great demonstration of the unique features of the controller.

Ok let me explain why I really enjoyed this game. Keeping in mind that not everyone will be just as thrilled, I must say that I was quite impressed with the gameplay and graphics throughout. So much to see and do, and the fact that you have a personal touch and influence on your surroundings is satisfying. As the game progressed, I was amazed at each new way they allowed you to utilize every function possible of the controller. It can get tricky, but it's a delight once you've figured it out. Helpful hints are there too when you become a bit frustrated. I've been a fan of little big planet for a while, and this studio did not let down or let up on this release. Try it! It's a treat for people of all ages. Another great feature is that you or a friend can also draw using a mobile phone or tablet, and then just swipe to send your creation whisping into the game. Cool huh? I think so :)

Not quite as good as LittleBig Planet.
Tearaway: Unfolded was made by the people who made the LittleBig Planet series. It is a cutesy game more for kids ages between 5 to 9. It's not too hard, only took my three hours to beat. The graphics are outstanding but the game play is a bit confusing as to what you're supposed to do. I enjoyed the game but I didn't think it was worth the money I paid. I really thought it was going to be better and a bit different than it turned out to be. Guys stick with LittleBig Planet 1, 2, or 3. Sorry for any typos I just had cataract surgery.

This is a really good game. It's simple to play but has lots of bits you can customise. The character runs and jumps and has adventures in a paper world. At times you can change the way things look, or make stuff for the game. I designed a cool looking crown for the king. When you ply a bit you can play it again and do something different. This game is even better if you have the play station camera because you can put your pictures into the game. Give it a go it's loads of fun.

Tearaway is a great game with simple, but awesome graphics. The mechanics and the platforming elements of this game are fun and unique unlike other platformers. This game utilizes all of the possible special features that are on the PS4 controller such as the touch-pad and the motion sensors. I highly recommend this game!

Such a wonderful imaginative game. From the crunching of paper to the soothing soundtrack, this game combines a story and art style that engrosses you to the end. If you love art, buy it! If you love game play, buy it! If you love creative freedom, buy it! A must own for anyone!

A nice change
This game is completely different to anything else I've played. The controls are very interactive in the simplest of ways. It won't be appealing to everyone but if you're looking for a change and want to fully experience the capabilities of the dual shock 4, I would recommend this game. Tesco' click and collect service was also very speedy.
