Summary

An experience all should try

The Good

I love this game because it totally changes the way you treat and look at other people. Suddenly your sister, best friend or spouse is your only friend in a harsh world. Working together to overcome the game's obstacles is a thrilling experience, in fact the whole game is refreshing in that it breaks the norm completely.

The Bad

The VS mode, despite allowing four players to play on two controllers, is very weak. Also, the difficulty rises overtly near the end, and playing on your lonesome is dull and too hard. And the music can be very annoying at times.

The Bottom Line

Basically a top-down platformer, the twist is that the screen is split down the middle, so one player is on the left and the other on the right. The game revolves around the concept of one player removing an obstacle for another player so they can progress forward. For instance, one player might fire a rock, scaring a bird away from it's egg. The other player pushes the egg under a hammer, which player 2 uses to smash it. Player 1 then uses the chick as a platform to reach the next section.
