Tak 2: The Staff of Dreams – Consumer Guide

Mike Bracken's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Cartoon Violence

Parents don't have anything to worry about in terms of content in Tak 2. This is a very kid-friendly game. What is worth considering is the game's challenge level. While this is a title aimed toward young gamers, the difficulty can be a little rough in spots and lead to some frustration.

Platforming fans should definitely put this on their Christmas list as the game is one of the better pure platformers to come along in recent memory. If you can get past the whole Nicktoons thing, there's a solid and rewarding adventure here.

Casual gamers will also want to give this one a look—the graphics are nice, the gameplay interesting, and it's a title that can certainly be picked up, played for a few minutes, then shelved again without really losing anything in the experience.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will be disappointed by the fact that the game features no subtitles at all for the dialogue sequences—none in the cutscenes, none in the game, none at all, actually.
