A good pick for young players and experienced gamers alike, but buyer beware: Once you finish the main quest, how long the game card will remain in your DS will depend primarily on how much you like the included minigames.
A decent single player and full use of the DS’s features along with a fair amount of content makes Tak worth at least trying out if you really like platformers. I just wish that the racing portions were better done.
The mini-games help keep things interesting, and the ability to replay them, as well as other unlockable content really help out the replay value. Unfortunately, poor level design and uninspired combat drag the game down well below its potential.
The unfriendly bits clearly out weigh the good ones. Which is sad because it looks like there was real potential here with the decent graphics, too bad the overall experience left me feeling a bit drab.
My biggest problem with Tak: The Great Juju Challenge was that I got nothing out of it. I sat and played through it, and picked it up on occasion over the weekend as well, but I don't remember almost a single moment of it.
