This is a good game that could have been better.

Summary: I got a headache playing this game because of the constantly moving environment. The character should move. Not the word around him. They could take a lesson from Insomniac games makers of Ratchet & Clank. Basically this is a ok platform game.The graphics are good, (I just wish that they stood still) but sometimes the camera angles are horrible. It's hard to see where you're going at times. It has it's challenges but is not too difficult. The game is a bit short too.
Summary: What I like about it The graphics and sound effects are fantastic-- some of the best I've seen. You get unlimited lives and you are returned near the same spot when you die so you can jump off a cliff as many times as you want and it doesn't matter. Good humor, like when you pick up a sheep, Tak's little legs stick out from a ball of fluff and the sheep looks around like he's surprised to be up there. Sliding down the vines is pretty fun.
Summary: Purchased this game for my son (Age 12), he got bored and frustrated within a few hours. I tried to give it a play and pretty much had the same experience. While not completely awful it certainly was nothing special. My biggest complaint is the game is just too slow. The character control could have been better and the camera logic needed some work - my son got motion sickness.
