This Tak 2 is actually the game that I plan on getting for my nephew who has made real improvement in school lately. (Way to go Evan!) The Seattle PI seems to take it one step further than simply calling it a great game.
Apparently they feel that it is a real improvement over the first game, Tak. Having not had the opportunity to try it myself, I could not testify to this. But I am comfortable with the PI’s belief. They have not steered me wrong yet. Then again, the PI rocks in general anyway. I have been reading it ever since coming down from Alaska as a kid.
Last year, many gamers missed the introduction of Tak — the pint-size, animal-wrangling tribesman and star of “Tak and the Power of Juju.” It had a unique story, impressive art direction and fresh game-play concepts, but it wasn’t enough to escape mediocrity. The sequel should be a more memorable experience.
Controlling wildlife is still the key point and the most enjoyable part of the game. In addition to Tak’s monkey mind-melding ability, he now has the power to transform into animals.
