  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. It's a testament to innovative thinking that the brilliant developers at Avalanche Software are able to find a way to breathe new life into an old premise and a series that most gamers would probably imagine has run its course.
  3. THQ presents the perfect game for younger gamers this holiday season, with refined platforming mechanics and co-op gameplay to further strengthen the Tak franchise.
  4. The slow progression it has taken over the past few years is a joy to see and I can't wait to see the next Tak game.
  5. Control is still a tad clunky but a super fun game nevertheless. [Nov p.94]
  6. Tak: The Great JuJu Challenge takes a fairly average platforming formula and puts a unique turn with it, making each level a race against the clock where speed is of the essence, but so is exploration.
  7. Tak 3 certainly has some adorable moments, but they're overshadowed by a frustrating design and sloppy gameplay mechanics.
