SmashPad’s Top 10 Games of 2021

3. It Takes Two – PS5, PS4, Xbox, PC

It Takes Two was nothing short of phenomenal. I actually just spent the last day at my cousins’ house watching the two beat the game. It has a sense of Nintendo-esque polish that really made it fun to play with my brother, and Fares’ team at Hazelight have simply perfected their multiplayer adventure system. A Way Out was great, but It Takes Two simply blows it out of the water, and the imaginativeness and attention to detail put into the game along with the way it so seamlessly and mechanically switches gameplay genres on you is just a master class in development.” – Danreb Victorio, Executive Editor
