“This shows that there definitely [are] players that also want to play co-op-only games! Thank you everyone and I hope we see more games like this,” Fare said.
Bertie described the game as a “delightful co-op tainted by an irritating story” in the It Takes Two Eurogamer review.
“[I]f you can swat the story away to the background, and consider it a slightly ill-chosen set-up for an adventure, then there’s a lot about It Takes Two to enjoy,” He said. “This is a rare kind of co-op experience, with an energy and imagination and playfulness that sometimes rivals Nintendo’s. As a toy, it can be a joy, and it will create some co-op moments to remember.”
ICYMI, Fares fans have found he snuck an audio clip of his Academy Award rant into It Takes Two as part of a bizarre Easter egg.
