It Takes Two Made Me Root For Divorce

It Takes Two is an odd game. Not only does the mix of genres, level styles, and side activities make it feel like it’s every game ever, but it presents itself as a cuddly, kid friendly game while dealing with mature themes and throwing in lots of jokes for grown ups.
