Product Review : PS4 Tearaway Unfolded

If you have kids then you are probably familiar with all things Playstation.

We are actually quite new to the gaming world having only introduced a PS4 to the household late last year. But at the age of 9 and 7, my boys had waited patiently enough and it turned out to be a great incentive for some pretty impressive academic performance at school, so they earned themselves a console.

But I’m still one of those mean conservative mums who strictly polices game time and the type of games allowed.

When I heard about Tearaway Unfolded, I have to admit I was curious. I really like the award-winning LittleBigPlanet for my boys and this is from the same creators. But personally, I think this is better. The Tearaway Unfolded 3D animated world comprises three short stories, which intertwine into one larger narrative. Through this, the kids and their messenger friend are guided by two (mostly) wise and playful characters, the Green Man and the Fortune Teller, on their quest to hear new tales.

As they travel together [just like buddies] they uncover a magical dimension inspired by half-forgotten stories and folklore to help out new friends and encounter dangerous challenges. It’s pretty impressive!


It ticked all MY boxes in terms of creativity, interactivity and the G rating. PLUS I loved that as they play, they can bring little bits of the incredible fantasy world back into the real world with them as they collect papercraft plans from the 60 models available. Then they can create the creatures, treasures and surrounding of Tearaway Unfolded from paper into the real world.

But ultimately I know I’m not the target market!

So I handed it over to the gamers of the house who were RAPT because they were allowed screen time on a school night.

And this is their review:



Ok, so now that you have played Tearaway can you tell us what the aim of the game is?

Stefan (8): “Well it’s about this messenger and he has to defeat Scraps and Scraps makes all of the plants into newspaper. Then you have to press a button and use it to make the newspaper disappear.”

Nathan (10): “Everything is made out of paper and there’s a rip in the sky and what your aim is to go up to the sky crack and go through it to the deliver the message to the world of the Yous. The Yous are the humans.”

Is it a cool world?


Was it easy to set up?

’50/50″ (they actually used that term!)

How do you think it compares to LittleBigPlanet?

Stefan: “Definitely better”

Nathan: “I think it is a tough one but I think LittleBigPlanet is a bit better because this is a single user game which makes a bit of a difference. We also didn’t use PSN because we haven’t networked our PS4 and it would’ve helped if we had used PSN and used the app as well.”

What would be your favourite features?

Stefan: Taking pictures

Nathan: Taking pictures. Being able to customise your character.

How would you rate it out of 5?

Stefan: 5

Nathan: 3. There was no proper fighting and the controls were very sensitive.

Mum: 5. I like it!
