Papo & Yo Review | PixelJumpers

"Papo & Yo may not be the best indie game, but I would argue it’s one of the best works of interactive art in recent memory. It’s not that there’s anything inherently wrong with Papo & Yo, it’s just that the gameplay itself isn’t very involving, instead relying on its aesthetics and symbolism to draw the player in. But as a work of interactive art, it is brilliant. Do games need to be fun to succeed? Is fun factor imperative to a game’s art? I don’t yet know the answer to these questions, but they’re becoming increasingly important to ask as games evolve as an art form. But if you are interested in the growing maturity of this medium, then Papo & Yo will not disappoint." Jake Weston, Associate Editor (Papo & Yo, PS3) 7.5/10
