VGChartz's Lee Mehr: "Like A Way Out before it, It Takes Two harnesses a specialized co-operative template for the betterment of the story it's trying to tell. The hurdle may be a bit obstructive for some, but the pay-off is playing one of the best games since next-gen began. The effusive energy and variegated mechanics aren't just meant as simple trinkets either; they tie in to the core theme of companionship in a genuine way. Even with the few slightly irksome qualities previously stated, Hazelight's latest is a joyous jaunt I can't stop talking about with anyone who’ll listen. Whether looking at its rare gameplay structure, interesting premise, or great production values, every element works in tandem to make for an experience that's one-of-a-kind."
