Leave it to the creative geniuses behind LittleBigPlanet to create another imaginative PlayStation platformer. Tearaway makes the most of the Vita’s various inputs from the cameras to the rear touchpad. The game comes alive by putting the player front and center, allowing them to interact with a paper craft world that is a deep as it is eye-catching.
Beneath its charming veneer lies a brilliantly constructed adventure imbued with surprisingly strong emotional resonance. Tearaway could possibly be the happiest game out there and the biggest challenge it poses may be playing it with anything but a smile on your face. For those reasons, and more, Tearaway is our PlayStation Vita Game of the Year.
