  • Summary: The third chapter in THQ's Tak series lets the player reprise the role of Tak, a shaman who uses magic to defeat enemies. Tak: The Great Juju Challenge features a new cooperative mode in which two players can solve puzzles together.

  1. A complete package. It combines some fine storytelling, great presentation values on every level, interesting puzzles, and great platforming to make for a fun ride that doesn't leave too soon or overstay its welcome.
  2. The game's balanced humor ensures that players won't lose interest, and the ability to jump in and out of proceedings by a second human player definitely adds an extra dimension to what's already a great adventure platform title.

    Tak and Lok are funny, likeable heroes who spring to life with impressively fluid animation and brilliant voice work. Kids will love them from the start. And the game's new two-character dynamic successfully breathes fresh life into the series.

    While the title does introduce a lot of new elements to spice up the Tak formula, they unfortunately come off feeling as though they could have fleshed out a bit more if the developer had more dev-time.
  5. Control is still a tad clunky but a super fun game nevertheless. [Nov p.94]
  6. To Avalanche Software's credit, The Great Juju Challenge represents a valid step towards a final acclimatisation.
  7. Tak 3 certainly has some adorable moments, but they're overshadowed by a frustrating design and sloppy gameplay mechanics.

    i'm 7 years old and i liked it because it was challenging and funny and had lots of hard and long levels. pretty good graphics too. some potty talk but it's funny when you get used to it. Collapse
