Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair Review

Oct 03, 2019

When Yooka-Laylee released a few years ago, it was a triumphant return to 3D platformers from the past. It was reminiscent of games like Mario 64 and Banjo-Kazooie. When Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair was announced, folks thought this might be a sequel, but instead it was later clarified we got was a spin off side project for the franchise. My biggest concern going into this was “would this be some sort of cheap cash grab to satisfy fans until the inevitable sequel?” Much to my surprise, while Impossible Lair is definitely a different spin on the franchise, it’s quality shines throughout.
