Tearaway Unfolded invites you on a journey to help your plucky messenger make a very important delivery. Reach into your TV with your DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller to unleash gusts of wind to unfold hidden areas, confound enemies and ride a paper plane. Use your new powers to catch objects thrown out of the TV screen and hurl them back into hard-to-reach places or at enemies, and guide your messenger through scary places by shining the light bar at the screen.

It’s also a damn beautiful game, and one of the few titles in which a reduced framerate makes sense, giving everything a near stop-motion appearances that adds to the charm of the presentation. Unfolded boasts a gorgeous soundtrack to boot. Sadly, the pacing issues just grind the smiles away and unravel an otherwise elegant experience. Were it not for the dragging of the feet in later chapters, Tearaway Unfolded would be a must-have PS4 release. As it stands, it’s a damn lovely game that nonetheless doesn’t need to be clamored for.
Look, if you own a PlayStation 4, then you owe it to yourself to give Tearaway Unfolded a shot. If you already played the original on the Vita, then this remake does more than enough to bring you back for a second round. If you haven't then you're missing out on an impressively creative game, one that seems to have decided right from the start that it wants to celebrate everything there is to offer and successfully manages to do so with almost no hitches. Tearaway Unfolded is a game I'll continue to look back on fondly for years to come.
Tearaway Unfolded successfully translates so many aspects of the original. It remains a distinctive experience which celebrates creativity and fun with undimmed enthusiasm and invention.... Its new areas unsurprisingly offer fun and fresh ideas, but they definitely feel crammed into the narrative of the original which suffers as a consequence. Tearaway Unfolded is a big and bold adaptation, but lacks some of the original's intimate charm.
