  • Summary: As the keeper of the power of Juju, it's Tak's responsibility to care for the sacred Juju shrines. Unfortunately, Tak accidentally frees the four "Grosstrosities" - Stink Giant, Slime Giant, Landfill Giant, and Molten Cheese Giant who were trapped in the shrine. These giants were trapped because they were so disgusting that they were just too gross to walk the earth. Tak must seek the help of the "Big G's" four master Jujus in order to defeat the giants before they cover the world in their stinky foulness. Acrobatic game play with parkour-style platforming: run on walls, slide on poles, swing on vines. Jump, climb, and run on gigantic bosses: Stink Giant, Slime Giant, Landfill Giant, Molten Cheese Giant. Play as Jeera in special areas of the game : drive the 'J-Runner' Jeep through the jungle in order to escape from danger. Special Juju magic spells that can be obtained after every boss battle. Skunk Slider Mini Game - Slide smelly skunks into a 'Odor Collecting' Target Zone. Fondue Fort Mini Game - Defend a magic shrine by dropping buckets of hot cheese on attacking enemies. Slime Gunked Mini Game - Slime as many targets as possible. Tiki Shoot Mini Game - Catapult sheep to aim at Tiki Heads. [THQ] Expand

  1. This is the right way to get kids into gaming. A charming romp with plenty in reserve to enchant us oldies. [Dec 2008, p.69]
  2. The bottom line is that if you have kids in the house who are fans of the "Tak" animated series, then they'll likely love Tak and the Guardians of Gross, and you can rest easy knowing that it's an all-around solid title.

    The humor is spot on and manages to set the game apart from the myriad of similar titles on the market, enough so that you may even forgive some its obvious flaws.
  4. Guardians of Gross is nothing special.
  5. Basically, the newest Tak entry is a substandard platforming/brawler hybrid that just doesn't manage to do anything for me.
