Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Tak and the Power of JuJu is a cartoon-styled action platformer. Like most action platformers it has a cute main character, an ineffectual bad guy and lots of running and jumping over...platforms. The problem for any new platformer appearing today is that it's such an old and long-ago-mastered genre that any new game has got to have something pretty special in order to stand out.

Tak's primary attempt at a unique selling point (apart from the fact that it was made in conjunction with Nickelodeon) revolves around the various animal-based puzzles (all the villagers have been turned into sheep by the aforementioned bad guy) created by various inter-species rivalries (orang-utans hate sheep for some reason) and bribery with food. This aspect of the game can occasionally be inspired but unfortunately the solution to each puzzle is rarely less than obvious.

The rest of the game is strictly by-the-numbers, with inconsequential combat, an obtuse camera system and far too many objects to pick up. Tak and the Power of JuJu is by no means a bad game--it is in fact a slightly above average game--but it's unlikely to enthral unless you've really not played this sort of thing before. And if you haven't then the likes of Jak II, Ratchet & Clank 2, Ape Escape 2 and ICO come much more highly recommended. --David Jenkins

Tatpoj (tak and the power of the juju) is a hugely entertaining experience. Using animals to help overcome challenges and obstacles tak provides a fresh scope to platform games. Tak provides cartoony lines to all of his experiences in the game. However the gameplay gets a bit repetitive after a while, collect this gather that find this, it begins to wear a bit thin. and taks lines lose their wityness quickly. However the game produces a fresh, fairly easy if rather strange approach to the genre i would recomend this to people who are getting tired of blood and guts and gore.
Graphics 7 nice and cartoony
Sound 7 witty one-liners
Gameplay 7 refreshing and easy
Lifespan 6 a bit too easy
Overall 6 fun for a while but the novelty wears off

Graphics/game itself are great. However, i was not so addicted. The storyline was rather boring for me. But i am sure many other adventure game fans will enjoy this. Worth buying.

If your stuck trying to decide what action game to get, then here's the one. The whole game is brilliant, although I haven't completed it yet! the whole way around the jungle is filled with action. You could say it is a bit like jak and daxter, but this has better graphics and is all around a better game. As it is new on the market, get it and impress all of your mates!
