The world of Tearaway is one you’ll want to soak in until your battery dies. That said, the story is sweet, but the story is short, and the game can be finished in a few sittings. ... Tearaway is an instant classic and should scratch all your Vita itches. Your only regret will be that there isn’t more of it to enjoy.
All of this is well and good but what it really boils down to is that Tearaway is just fun. Thoughtful, engaging, and charming in a way that many recent games haven't been, this beautiful world will appeal to lovers of platformers both old and new. And yes, it's a PlayStation Vita exclusive and sure, lots of people don't own a Vita, but the game itself has integrated the PlayStation Vita's functionality so well that housing it on any other platform seems wrong.
It's a game that invites you to simply enjoy the journey, and the fact that the myriad side objectives are left for you to discover - rather than being highlighted on a map, or pointed towards by a pushy NPC - only spur you into seeking them out. The wonderfully off-kilter soundtrack that accompanies you on your travels is further encouragement to go off and explore at your own pace. A gorgeous, inventive adventure, Tearaway isn't just Vita's best new game, it's one of the most original things you'll play all year.
