Summary: I love love LOVE Crash Bandicoot games and this follows in suit of those to the T as far as game play!!! The game being only 5 dollars I thought it would be pretty bad, but I was extremely wrong! Tak has all the moves of the prince in the prince of persia games like wall running, pole climbing, wall climbing, etc. and has the double jump like Crash. He also talks quite a bit as you play, making it pretty funny to follow along.
Maybe Fun for Kids, but it's too short and derivative to entertain anyone over the age of 12.

Summary: The Tak gaming franchise has been such an odd animal over the years. Based on its cartoony and child-targeted nature, one might have expected a pretty slapdash series of games, but the debut game was surprisingly fun and addictive. That game was an open-ended quest type game with heavy platforming elements. The sequel, Staff of Dreams, shed the quest elements, and focused on a strictly linear platforming experience.
Summary: I am 45 and I loved playing this game. It is not all that mentally challenging, but it is really fun. I think it is visually beautiful and has that tiki island feel. I would not pay more than $25 for it. My 13 year old nephew finished it in one day.
Summary: Tak: Guardians of Gross Bought this for my 9 year old nephew who thought it was truly cool. Of course, he figured out right away how to use it, how to play it and even his older brother (13) thought it was fun. As a result I'm considered a cool aunt with some cred. And how can you beat that?
Summary: First of all, I like this game. If you've played previous versions of Tak, you should enjoy this one. The graphics aren't as great as they could be (PS2 quality), but gameplay and fun factor make up it. Great for kids between 8 and 13.
