  1. It has all the standard components of traditional platform titles but disguises them with clever game design, intuitive character interaction, and constant humor.

    Perhaps it's because of the goofy main character, a humorous plot line, or some creative ways to present age old puzzles, but you're compelled to play through Tak. It's fun and incorporates platform collecting in a way that doesn't seem like you're gathering all sorts of items.
  3. Nintendo Power
    A perfectly competent platformer with some great voice acting, but it doesn't really bring anyting new to the table. [Dec 2003, p.138]
  4. Play Magazine
    Tak is one of the most detailed platformers I've ever seen, and possesses a measure of style that sets the universe apart, akin to what Michel Ancel accomplished with "Rayman." [Nov 2003, p.82]
  5. The main problem that Tak And The Power Of Juju has is persuading gamers that it is not a game aimed merely at a young audience and that there is plenty of challenge here whatever your age.

    Chickens- those stupid chicken levels. What were they thinking! I made an omlet out of this game and it gave me indigestion!

    I love this game. I love the quirky humor of it. The graphics are astounding. I only wish it were for more players. The gameplay is pretty good.
