  1. It’s dull, repetitive and often annoying. Even the kindergarten target audience will find themselves alienated while older gamers will just be bored.

    I wanted to like this one. Good visuals and humor are pluses. Unfortunately, the controls are just bad (maybe it's just me?). Hard to I wanted to like this one. Good visuals and humor are pluses. Unfortunately, the controls are just bad (maybe it's just me?). Hard to explain, but compared to Rayman, Mario, Banjo, Jak & Daxter, Ratchet & Clank, Psychonauts...pretty much any other platformer, there's just something wrong with the mechanics here. Completely turned me off. Could've been an 8 easily if not for this weirdness. Full Review »

    Look out Mario! Tak's in town! No goombas, no koopa-troopas, no capes, no princesses.

    Look out Mario! Tak's in town! No goombas, no koopa-troopas, no capes, no princesses.
    Young caveboy Tak explores a vast vegetative world filled with creatures, power ups and puzzles.
    This adventure is like no other. Incredible graphics, and a large world to explore make for hours of addictive fun. Watch out Nintendo, before this slept-on goodie takes the top spot!

The world was so engagingTak was such a great game; an integral part of my childhood (even if I wasn't particularly good at it at the time). The world was so engaging and immersive - the art style, character and enemy design, and the catchy music gave it so much character. This game was truly a unique gem with a great sense of humor.
