Papo & Yo Review

 

Can a video game make you cry? It's a question that is asked in so many opinion pieces on the net, the answer usually being yes. Of course everyone is different, some may see crying in marvel as Master Chief saves the world in Halo is strange, while...

One scene near the end of the game is sure to bring most players to tears, linking the real and fantasy worlds together in a beautiful way.

To my mother, brother and sisters with whom I survived the monster of my father”

And more than any of its clipping issues or framerate dips, it’s Caballero’s opening words that resonate throughout the entire experience: An emotionally raw dedication to his family that lingers in black and white, piercing each heartbreakingly...

Papo & Yo Review: Daddie Dearest

 

Developer Minority delivers a poignant message about addiction, but players will have to sidestep a few flaws in order to appreciate it.

I couldn't really blame anyone who considers Papo & Yo an unpolished mess -- the game certainly builds a case for it. In some areas, the puzzles feel unintuitive, even sloppy, with poorly telegraphed clues and seemingly random stretches that defy...

How does Minority's debut PSN exclusive Papo & Yo live up to its emotional ambitions and player expectations? For many reasons, the answer may surprise you.

No matter how loud Papo & Yo screams for your attention, the only thing most players will hear is a cry for help. The on-paper premise of a traumatic childhood brought to life as a playable short story is brilliant, but the wounded execution can’t...

The gameplay of Papo & Yo won't grab you, but its imaginative portrayal of a young boy's struggles makes it a worthwhile and special experience.

Handles difficult subject matter wonderfully ; Filled with magical, empowering moments

Puzzles are too easy to be rewarding ; Some technical issues

Quico's quest eventually requires him to seek a cure for Monster, and to say too much about how that progresses would risk spoiling the story. But suffice it to say that Papo & Yo doesn't disrespect its audience or trivialize its subject matter by...

The story of a boy and his monster - who's his alcoholic father.

Papo & Yo

 

“To my mother, brothers and sisters with whom I survived the monster in my father.” With this revealing sentence Papo & Yo starts; a stark message that what follows has more on its mind that your typical puzzle platformer. Videogames as allegory are...

Though it may dip a little in the middle Papo & Yo finishes strongly, making good use of the game’s evocative musical score and themes to create a resonant conclusion that may be a little on the nose, but still feels risky and experimental compared to...

Papo & Yo - PS3 Review

 

But to me, these people will be missing the point. I agree that the game is not difficult and that the only way anyone would fail to finish it, is if they lacked the staying power to see this 4-5 hour game through to its conclusion. But for me, I had...
