    It Takes Two is without a doubt one of the best platformers I've played in the last decade. The level design is incredible, and the amount of ideas in terms of its co-operative elements make every second of it so much fun to play.

    It Takes Two is the magnum opus not only of Hazelight Studios but of co-op experiences in general. It’s one of those extremely rare games that it’s almost impossible to find a fault to any of its elements, be it the longevity, gameplay, art direction, music, boss fights, environmental puzzles, innovation etc. A truly flawless experience.

    It's impressive stuff. It Takes Two is the best 3D platformer I've played since Super Mario Odyssey, and like that game, it has a flair for variety. You may ride a frog or fly a plane with wings made from Cody's boxers or hack-and-slash through a Diablo-style castle. Despite the downright wild amount of things to do, It Takes Two manages to handle every mechanic well. This is the second release from Hazelight, and while A Way Out had plenty of fans, it seems that it may just take two to make a thing go quite this right.

    It Takes Two is simply an amazing co-op game. When played together with a good friend, it will become an experience you won’t soon forget.

    It Takes Two is a brilliant coop platform game, in which every level is designed as a collaborative puzzle. It is fun, sometimes moving, and every level shows great ingenuity.

    It Takes Two brings us all gameplay elements that are desired in a co-op game, Team Hazelight has indeed achieved a next level experience in a journey filled with a lot of excitement.

    While the game's creativity shines in its beat-by-beat gameplay and level design, It Takes Two's selling point — its narrative — feels half-baked.

It Takes Two is probably the best coop gameAfter playing almost all Lego games with my 6 year old son. We were looking for a new coop game. It Takes Two is probably the best coop game ever. It's fun, it's witty, it's hard but playable for a 6 year old. We had so many high fives playing this game together. If you are a dad looking for a game to play with your son, this is it! Lego City Undercover and It Takes Two are the video games to play with your kids :) Expand
