  1. If you liked the original game, you'll love Tak 2: The Staff of Dreams. Not only is it bigger, better and more beautiful but it's also one of those games that will win you over with its charming story and characters plus its too-fun-to-put-down platformer goodness.
  2. Has a darker story and shows a silghtly more grown-up version of the character, but it still has plenty of light folly and moderately difficult puzzles. [Dec 2004, p.146]
  3. With a great, easy-to-follow storyline, brilliant visual designs, and memorable characters, Tak 2 is one of the most impressive third-party platformers on the GameCube this year.
  4. Although Tak 2 doesn't do anything really wrong, there isn't much here that is new or innovative.
  5. 70
    Combines great gameplay with entertaining characters and extremely pretty visuals for a surprisingly fun gaming experience.
  6. Even for those not willing to hop into gaming's "kiddy pool," come on in: the water's fine.
  7. But beyond the odd wild ride on the back of a beast, negotiating the levels is a tame affair. This could prove frustrating for some, as the level of difficulty is often unbalanced.

    this game is just so fun to play, this is the game that makes my childhood feel blessed. Amazing music, cool combat system, and an unforgettable adventure through outstanding environments and levels, I constantly find myself replaying this game over and over again. Its a shame I don't really see it get the credit that it deserves, because THQ did a great job with this game. Collapse

    It's funny, sometimes challenging, and a very long adventure, but while playing you'll realize that it is to long. The voice acting is great, but the music int he first level and sometimes in other levels, cuts out. The game is sometimes choppy, but not to bad. The multi-player seems rushed, and just crappy and lazy. Expand
