    However you want to look at it, though, between its solid story and its just-the-right-difficulty puzzles, It Takes Two is a perfect game if you’re looking for something that will interest non-gamer[s].

    New gameplay elements are constantly being introduced in It Takes Two, each requiring you to develop your own skills. And although the story of impending divorce sounds quite sad - and for many undoubtedly recognizable - the 3D platform game uses a lot of humor. You end up in a very original and imaginative world, which continues to surprise even after hours.

    It Takes Two is the final consecration to Josef Fares’ vision, and a well-deserved leap forward for Hazelight. If you are looking for a game to be played with a friend, an experience where you can breathe the passion of its makers or simply… you are in love with videogames, It Takes Two is something you don’t want to miss.

    From start to finish, It Takes Two is a great co-op experience. The gameplay is fun and varied throughout the entire run, and it frequently manages to surprise you. It's simply a fun trip to share with a friend, and it's a game that looks like it was as fun to conceptualize as it is to play. That said, the game frequently gets in the way of itself with mediocre and ineffective writing that I found to be fairly forgettable. It's a great game that stops just short of being a masterpiece of co-op gaming. I simply cannot wait to see what Josef Fares comes up with next.

    Josef Fares wasn’t kidding when he said that It Takes Two is unlike any other platformer: it’s amazing how many various mechanics and ideas found their place in this game. [Issue#253, p.32]

    Despite its flaws, It Takes Two is a special and highly polished game. It is full of surprises, new mechanics and a lot of heart. A must play for fans of co-op games.

    It Takes Two's refreshing gameplay loop and heavy focus on cooperation and timing results in some of the most satisfying puzzling, platforming, and combat I've seen in a very long time.

    Perfect co-op fun! The game looks awesome and game play is creative and fun. Story line is a bit mad but it doesn’t spoil the game.

    Easyly the best local coop game I have ever played, and I have been gaming for 20 years!

    I play games with my son and im always amazed at the lack of decent local coop games out there but this game ticked every single box and honestly, alot more! The level design and story are perfect for playing with someone a little younger. You not only have to communicate through the game but it also makes you have to communicate in real life to progress. Your really do go on a little mini adventure with who ever you are playing with.

    The guys who made this game deserve every single penny they make from it and im already hoping they will make a 2nd, 3rd, and 9th one. Fantastic stuff! If you game with a family member then buy it now, its honestly a no brainer.

Despite my general lack of interest in platformers, I found every second of this game enjoyable. There are an impressive number of different elements in the game, that are rarely played for too long & vary from one another in creative ways that are efficient to the overarching story. I’d be shocked if it’s not a solid contender for game of the year! Expand

None of the positive reviews seem authentic, those who have played the game knows exactly what I mean. Same goes for these fraudulent video games websites that haven't rated this below 2-3. The game has nothing to do with fun, reminds me of a time when players had to guess what to do to keep progressing in the game. Controls are clunky, puzzles are either stupidly easy or just impossible to understand. Most of the time the game doesn't do anything to make the stage or goal clear, one of the worst co op games of all times. Btw when you make a game that has split screen you should really make camera controls that are possible to get around. Stupid game that feels more like an elementary school quiz than a game. I can't really see anyone having fun with this, I vote this for the worst game of the decade... They should really have a money back option on psn, maybe this way we'll see developers like this go extinct as they should. Expand
