It Takes Two review
Exceptional
by jorrybaby

Incredibly ingenuitive platforming design - I think that the thing that impressed me the most was how a new mechanic was introduced every hour, and every time it felt fresh, allowing the game to "swap costumes" with lots of other genres in playful ways. The level and sound design were muy bueno - the attention to detail definitely increased the delightfulness of the whole experience. The balance between the two players was very well-tuned. The story was probably the weakest thing about the game - Pav and I found all the "human being" cutscenes either unintentionally funny or awful to watch. It Takes Two very much wears its narrative intentions on its sleeve and you know exactly where the the game is heading right from the beginning - I kind of wish this had been subverted. The other main drawback is the length - it's not so much that the game runs out of new ideas or mechanics, but that it just feels like it overstays its welcome. The pacing of the story, in all of its predictability, begins to sag a bit at the 7/8 hour mark. It definitely could've been 25% shorter and still been as good.

Very fun! Could've been more challenging.
8.5/10
I played it with my best friend. It was one of the best coop experience I had with someone. Last time we enjoyed a coop game this much, it was portal 2.
Masterpiece.
