Talent Not Included is the type of platformer we’d get if Super Meat Boy, Trine, and Super Mario 3 dripped their creative juices into a game. Set in the fantasy land of Notthatmuchfurther, our heroes are simple actors giving the performance of their lives. Literally.
With just enough replayability to suit all, a delightful visual representation, a soundtrack which delivers the goods and some very clever, funny, ideas in place, Frima have nearly brought the house down with Talent Not Included. Yes there are the odd issues, but nothing that is anywhere near game-breaking, and even the occasional unexpected ramping up in difficulty will see you and a friend having a great time.
When I started playing Talent Not Included, I was blown away by its tight controls and stage setting. Towards the end, I was still enjoying it, but my enthusiasm waned considerably compared to where it once was. Still, its unique presentation and complementary design does make for a good time.
