This game is fucking unbelievable and incredible and I cannot say enough good things about it.
I’ve played with a friend for 5-6 hours total across 4 sessions and every 60-90 minute session is so packed with innovative ideas, beautiful scenery, and pure fun, more than some entire games. We’re in chapter 3 of 7 so far.
Every 10 minutes you’re doing something new, executed so well, i just shake my head over and over again wondering how this team pulled off such a game in only a few years since their last (especially with one of them happening during a pandemic)
I get that the story might immediately turn some people off, but if you can push past it you’ll find a genuine game of the year candidate that people will be talking about for a LONG time.
I liked Brothers and A Way Out, but It Takes Two is such a tremendous improvement in every way.
By the way - even if neither you nor friend own the game, you can still play the first 90 minutes for free with the buddy pass download.
