    It Takes Two is absolutely stellar. Extremely varied, never boring, fun and exciting to play, incredibly pretty and with great character writing. If you enjoy cooperative play, you owe it to yourself to play it.

    Let's not be afraid to say that It Takes Two is one of the best cooperative games available: the new Hazelight hits the nail on the head every time, with numerous, varied and always very inventive situations. The pace is so fast that not half an hour goes by without the title integrating a new mechanic or propelling you into a new environment, for a constantly renewed gameplay pleasure. Not to spoil anything, the sublime art direction and the endearing duo formed by Cody and May sweep away its few flaws, which are more of a quibble than anything else. A killer-app, that we warmly recommend to you.

    There is no doubt that It Takes Two is one of the best two-person cooperative games in recent years. From the moment I entered this wonderful world, I was bombarded by senses from all aspects throughout the game and shocked this masterpiece of creativity and imagination. The only question is, to Josef fares and Hazelight, this is the summit or just a good beginning?

    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.

    - 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).

    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.
