Sooner or later, all 2D action/adventures go 3D, and all 3D action/adventures do the reverse. Crash started out in the third dimension then morphed into a grand side-scroller for the Game Boy Advance. Sonic and Mario have gone back and forth because, as gamers all know, hedgehogs and plumbers just can't make up their minds.
Tak, the likable hero and explorer from Nickelodeon and THQ, has mostly stayed on the 3D side of the fence. He dabbled in the second dimension a few years ago but was hesitant to take the plunge. Now it would seem that he is no longer fearful: with a staff in his hand and a feather in his hair, Tak is now part of the side-scroller world. His second DS adventure, Tak: Mojo Mistake, takes him on a journey you won't recognize. And though the game has an abundance of flaws, overall the project was not a mistake.
