The Unfinished Swan Review

 

I'm going to make this plain— Either you will appreciate The Unfinished Swan for precisely what it is, or you will always be looking for something that doesn't – and perhaps shouldn't – exist. This intriguing, innovative adventure from Giant Sparrow is...

The Ugly: “A swan can’t be ugly. Even if it’s unfinished.”

Regardless of their medium, every creator starts with a blank canvas; an inaugural point where there’s not a single note, word, lyric, or lick of paint yet applied and infinite possibilities lay ahead. It’s likely there was once a time when Giant...

But where Giant Sparrow’s narrative vision is clearly focused, The Unfinished Swan’s gameplay deviates rather rapidly from that opening castle of wonder. It never sticks with any of its admittedly varied and occasionally interesting ideas long enough...

The Unfinished Swan's childlike sense of wonder doesn't fully mask its simplistic gameplay.

Innovative painting mechanic ; Fairy-tale storyline keeps you moving forward

Shallow and repetitive gameplay ; Easy puzzles fail to engage you in the world

There's an argument to be made that maybe I shouldn't spend any time telling you about The Unfinished Swan. What makes this game so special is what you don't know going in and anything I say will only rob you of the sense of discovery. All you need to...

Giant Sparrow delivers one of the most unique games of the year. Sadly, The Unfinished Swan is a little too easy for its own good. Players can easily blow through the game in a couple hours. Still, the game's story is strong enough to keep you engaged...

Is Giant Sparrow's paint-a-rific debut worth checking out? We lob balls of paint around in an effort to..

The Unfinished Swan is entirely satisfied with being extremely interesting and lovely, rather than being the sort of larger, more crucial experience it occasionally seems like it might turn into...

Glorious visual design; The narration is extremely interesting; Lovely environments to explore; It’s very interesting and unique

Later sections try out ideas that don’t quite work; Sometimes paint splodges actually obscure geometry; A little too much of the same thing over and over in the middle

The Unfinished Swan's childlike sense of wonder doesn't fully mask its simplistic gameplay.

Innovative painting mechanic ; Fairy-tale storyline keeps you moving forward

Shallow and repetitive gameplay ; Easy puzzles fail to engage you in the world

Nevertheless, there's much to admire about The Unfinished Swan, even if it feels, well, unfinished. The basic idea behind its paint-blotching mechanic is innovative, and you can imagine a fuller realization of it in a game yet to come. And though the...
