It Takes Two is co-op gaming genius and is going to go down as both a classic of the genre and a Game of the Year contender. There's not a single dull moment in the entire game, and we didn't run into any glitches or technical issues of any kind either. It Takes Two is polished to near-perfection, and an absolute must-play for co-op gaming fans.
It Takes Two is a cooperative gaming experience like no other. Its gameplay sometimes takes a back seat to the overall spectacle of the adventure but even when that happens, it's hard not to enjoy every minute of this incredible journey.
Might be one of the best games I've ever played. You can really feel the love the developers put into it.
Thank you HazelightStudios, for giving me and my girlfriend many hours of fun. We really appreciated the time and effort that went into making the game a great experience.
Hazelight further hones its craft as ambitious creators of unique co-op experiences with It Takes Two. A clever, inventive procession of ideas and concepts that gel together to form a spellbinding co-op game.
It Takes Two is endlessly creative. Gameplay speaks to narrative, while narrative informs gameplay, and the entire experience just feels incredibly polished and detailed. It nails relationships in ways that so many games—and even other forms of media—just can’t. It asks the player to engage with the the story through mandatory co-op to tell the tale of a couple on the verge of divorce, rediscovering the good in their relationship. It’s not just one of the best action platformers in recent memory, but also a fantastic and unique story representing a dynamic that you don’t often see represented in games, at least not to this depth and nuance.
I adore A Way Out, so I had really high expectations for Hazelight’s new game. Instead of sticking to the proven, perfect formula of AWO, the developers decided to give us more of everything and as a result overdid it in many respects. The levels are too long and there are too many minigames, while the story can’t keep up. It seemed to me the narrative is just a pretext to introduce as many different gameplay mechanics as possible, and as a result the relationship between the protagonists is implausible.

It takes all the fun of a mandatory co-op game and as a bonus, throws in your parents’ constant fighting and sniping at each other due to years of resentment!!! How could you lose? Seriously, though, the game is very fun. Any other storyline would have been a thousand times better, though. May and Cody are both intolerable and I found myself praying for their demise and Rose’s liberation. 7/10 - a story so bad you lost two points for it. So much ****, whining, and blaming each other going around it’s really hard to play with the volume up. At least you learn teamwork all the better by both of you needing to hold down a button to skip the painful cutscenes.
Decent fun for two players. If you dont mind story on level of Hollywood movie (which is not a compliment), annoying woman behaving like a man and sissy man behaving like a woman. And terrible book. And logical mistakes that just make you roll your eyes (if you pay them any attention). On the bright side, my girlfriend had fun, liked the models (anything cute gets her).
