Yooka Laylee Game Review

Yooka Laylee Game Review

Almost everyone in this generation had experienced playing video games. However, there is a slight difference in the video games of today compared to before. The latest video games are of very high quality if compared to the older ones. This is due to the many inventions and creations of technology. To give a look back to what kind of video games were launched before, play tonic creates a new game called Yooka laylee.

YOOKA LAYLEE OBJECTIVES

The Yooka-Laylee release is meant to be a successor to the Banjo-Kazooie series. It was developed by play-tonic games in an attempt to bring back the retro feeling. It is so easy for these kinds of games to be forgotten in this age because of the more advanced technology and space. This advancement of technology offers so many better games and versions of video games.

While the move was okay, I do not think many people will play and actually want to stick to Yooka-Laylee. The old Nintendo games were created with so little technology. There was not much that the developers could work with. This is why the games like Mario, Banjo-Kazooie and the rest turned out the way they did. This was fine for that time. Players did not know any better and they also did not have many options to choose from.

I do not mean that Yooka-Laylee is bad. On the contrary, Yooka-Laylee is quite interesting. It can be seen as a breath of fresh air from the modern virtual video games. However, Yooka-Laylee is not exactly something that can be very well accepted by the younger generation. They will not be able to appreciate that it sheds a light on the origin of video games. What they used to be before everything became so modern.

 YOOKA LAYLEE GAMEPLAY

Yooka-Laylee is definitely a huge improvement from Banjo-Kazooie. It gives off a vibrant feeling because of its color. The characters are also quite humorous in their own ways. Yooka is some sort of lizard who seems to be the leader. He can be viewed as the more heroic character. Laylee, on the other hand, is a bat.

She has a lot of jokes but she also has some pretty impressive abilities. She can unlock invisible objects using her sonar ray powers. Together, this unlikely pair goes on many fun adventures which will make you want to play more and more.

 
There is a very well laid out plot in Yooka Laylee. The story revolves around a book that Yooka and Laylee previously used as a piece of furniture. They then realize that this is a powerful book that has so many hidden things in it. However, a villain called capital B soon gets his hands on it.

The books’ pages end up being scattered and Yooka and Laylee have the task of finding them. This is what the game is all about. The books’ pages, called pagies are what you are supposed to collect. The more pagies you collect, the more you expand then vice versa. And so on and so forth.

YOOKA LAYLEE FEATURES

Yooka Laylee places you in a hub world that has a sprawling maze. Aside from this hub, however, are five different worlds which you get to explore. It might seem like these five worlds are a lot but only four are completely functional. One doesn’t have much to offer. Then there is a casino world which has common casino functionalities.

Then the rest is really cool and they look awesome as well. For example, one of the worlds is the Mayans ruins. The Mayans ruins exist on floating islands which makes them so interesting to explore. Another thing I like is the icy castle because it has so many adventures. You may easily get lost in these huge worlds. Sadly there are no maps to remind you where you have been or show you where to go.

As you play Yooka Laylee, you will encounter a wide variety of features that have been strategically placed. There are hulking bosses, oddball characters, arcade games, multiplayer games, mine cart challenges, quiz shows and much more. The more you gather collectible items, the more abilities you can buy. Having abilities will help you play and have better chances to advance to a new level.

The items you gather will also help you to discover a new world, unlock arcade games, and expand worlds and so much more. Yooka Laylee might look like it is pretty easy to manage, and it is. However, getting to use combat effectively could be a challenge. Otherwise, the characters are handled generally well if you know what to do. 

INTERESTING GAME CONTENT YOOKA LAYLEE

I cannot forget to mention the supporting cast to Yooka-Laylee. These are the creatures that talk and drift you away from the conventional playing. One of these cast members is a cloud called nimbus as in nimbus cloud. Nimbus is a depressed cloud whose wife supposedly left for a typhoon. If you think this is a bit extra, there’s another one.Twozer is the name of the snake that deals with narcotics.

He also happens to sell you your new abilities, so having a dialogue with him is inevitable. Twozer is normally paid with some of the magical quills. In the background, there is a soundtrack which sounds a little dated. The sound track is somehow nice, considering the time that Yooka-Laylee is meant to emulate. 

Yooka Laylee has you deal with six bosses, and getting to the last boss will bring the game to an end. The boss fights are not exactly pleasant, but you have to take them on if you want to make any progress. In fact, most of the tasks you will find yourself having to undertake in Yooka Laylee are quite tedious. Some seem pointless and unnecessarily hard to me.

The Cons part of Yooka Laylee

This can end up frustrating any psyche I had for the Yooka Laylee. For example, the hard trivia or memory quiz if you will. I do not really see the point of answering a bunch of questions, some of which do not even make sense. The points in this game where you have to use any transportation are also such a pain.

They have tried, especially because Yooka and Laylee can transform in stuff, mostly a vehicle. But just being able to navigate, get through obstacles and get to the destination is hard.  I do see the importance of doing it so complicated for such a simple tasks

Whether or not Yooka Laylee is something that you will like, that is entirely up to you. I think the creators need to find a place between good parts of the retro games, and the modern games. This game has potential, but it needs some work. 

The game is available in the following platform :

PC, Linux, Mac, PS4, Xbox One
