2It Takes Two

It Takes Two

No, we’re not talking about the 90s movie starring the Olsen twins. It Takes Two is the newest game from Hazelight Studios, the team behind A Way Out (which you’ll also find further down this list). It Takes Two is actually the perfect co-op game, not least because you can only play it in co-op. That’s right – there’s not a single-player mode in sight.

Making a game strictly co-op is a risky move, but it’s one that Hazelight Studios have whole-heartedly embraced. And so far, it’s working out pretty well for them. The joy of a game designed solely to be played in co-op is that it can really nail the mechanics; there’s never any feel of a player simply tagging along for the ride. In It Takes Two, players take on the role of Cody and May, a married couple on the brink of divorce. Some weird and wonderful magic turns them into a pair of dolls – and as tiny versions of themselves, a wonderfully kooky adventure is afoot, seeing the pair tackle all manner of puzzles, action and adventure.

It’s one of the best couch co-op games on PS5 for many reasons: it looks fantastic, it’s heart-warming and hilarious, and it truly embraces co-operative play. We love it.
