    It Takes Two manages to combine cooperative acting in the level of many game genres, perfectly dose the pace and tell a serious story about parenting with a successful exaggeration. All this beautifully in a detailed fairytale-fantasy world, the exploration of which makes it a double joy.

    A fantastic presentation buoyed by constantly enjoyable, varied gameplay and wonderful level design make It Takes Two a must-play for fans of platformers. And even anyone who's ever wanted to play a Pixar movie.

    It Takes Two is a spectacular co-op adventure that lays down a path of great gameplay ideas and uses it to play a giddy game of hopscotch. It’s beautiful, breakneck-paced, and bubbling over with creativity, and playfulness and experimentation are rewarded at every turn. If you have any kind of co-op partner in your life, be they spouse, friend, sibling, or other (even a child, though the themes might be too mature for them), It Takes Two is a truly joyful trip you really need to take together.

    Fast-paced, very smart and original adventure for two players, full of surprises and awe-inspiring moments.

    An excellent co-op adventure that doesn't take itself too seriously, and that's the only place it falls short.

    Amazing game. I recommend it.

    - The story is original and funny. The characters are unique in the story yet close to reality.
    - The graphics are really really cool and there's a lot of different themes. Sometimes you'll just think it's mind-blowing. Plus, the optimization is great. The only problem is about the micro freezing problems into the cinematic but not game breaking at all.
    - The gameplay and the puzzles are quite simple yet satisfying, with a lot of refreshing ideas, always different. You don't get the same tools/powers each hour of playing the game. I didn't get any bug. The length of the game isn't insane but still good.

    - The only problem is how players chose to pay for the game. It's 40€ for one player and 0€ for the other. Quite expensive for the length, even for the good quality. Even tho players can split, the "free" player don't get any achievements (on Steam at least).

One problem with it is that not all controllers are detected in local co-op so we could only play online with a friend pass. They doesn't mention in advance that you can't co-op on one keyboard.

    Waste of money and time for me and my wife.
    Only buy the game if you are 100% sure you have a controller that actually works for the game.
