Game Vortex writes: "In my next life, I want to come back as a developer for licensed games. By my calculation, these folks can't lose. If the licensed game is bad, everyone has sympathy and says it stands to reason, since expectations were already low. If the game is good, you end up lauded as gods or goddesses for beating the odds. We've played our share of licensed games and found very few that beat the odds against mediocrity, but Tak and the Guardians of Gross is just such a game. Imagine our surprise when we broke the wrapper on this one and found a real Platformer contender for the Wii."
