Yooka Laylee video game

I Like this Better than A Hat in Time


Let's get this out of the way now-- visually, the game is good and therefore I have nothing else to say about it.

Musically it is OK, although it feels like it it perhaps trying too hard to sound like another game, namely Banjo-Kazooie. The audio is... well, it's good. It works as game background music but I don't think I would want to listen to it on its own. The audio never quite made it for me to the level of Banjo-Kazooie or Banjo-Tooie.

As far as gameplay... I like it. However, I have an issue with the level expansion mechanic. The stages are simply too big and they did not need to get even bigger with a mechanic to expand them. Additionally, the game starts very strong and the middle stages feel very weak. I suppose every game like this has a place where it will drag, but the first two stages are the strongest by far. This made me ask "why am I still playing this?." Although I did not personally like the swamp stage the "boss"-- such that this game has them-- made up for it along with colorful characters. The casino feels weird. It does not seem to play like the other stages and it is a noted dropoff in quality. The game never really seems to spring back from there.

Overall it is a lot of fun. Wobbly A-.
