      This game shows how much experience they have with 2D platformers.

          Just got it yesterday. It’s everything I like in a video game and more. Stunning visuals, smooth gameplay, mesmerizing soundtrack and a nice dose of childhood nostalgia. So nice to get whats essentially a new DKC title.

                what a shame, a sidescroller. Was hoping for another 3d enviornment like banjo. :(

                        This does look very promising and it has a very savoury charm about it. Silky smooth visuals, cute and lively animations, engaging gameplay, cohesive graphics with plenty of assets and details to it, suitable sounds and music. It emanates a strong spirit of integrity, coherence and lushness. How lovely. 😊

                          You litteraly turned the only hope of a banjo game ever released and turned into a dkc style game
                          Have we already entered nuts and bolt terratory

                              This looks great! the way Yooka and Laylee work together to push the characters forward momentum is a trick sonic games should adapt to. There was some comfortable looking high speed gameplay in there!

                                Looking forward to this. The biggest thing I'm looking forward to is the pricepoint. This probably won't be $80 CAD like Tropical Freeze was, and that kind of price was too steep for me. I wanted to play it, too, but I needed it at $30-$40, and it wasn't enough of a "must-have" for me to justify the premium price. Money's tight now that I'm an adult, you know. If I'm spending a lot of money on entertainment, I want to reeeally love it.

                                    What, that's an outrage! How can a Sequel go backwards??!
                                    And they were onto something soo good with the 1st game; it seems they've almost been told to hush up on making an expansive successor now that the real Banjo has returned. And people have the cheek to say Pokemon's going backwards, wth lol??! Done with this series! At least the 1st game was optimised for Switch

                                          the new donkey kong country games have absolutely ruined my standards for 2D platformers using 3D graphics this game still looks good and the use of the overworld i think is a really good idea, and somewhat metroidvaniaish (where instead of using new items to unlock different areas you complete levels/challenges or puzzles, although if areas dont wind back around to earlier areas then of course this wouldnt fit as much into the metroidvania genre) but because of how much detail the new donkey kong games have in their environments, where you see little stories being told in the background, this game (mainly the 2D levels) look black in comparison BUT this is obviously not finished, i dont expect whole animated stories being told in the background like a giant squid destroying a pirate ship but i would generally like to believe that the world they're creating is in fact alive.

                                              I couldn’t warm to the original nor the characters, it felt like it was trying to be Banjo-Kazooie but was just lacking something. I will try it again soon though, it seemed like a solid game.

                                                theyre doing a "BotW" by hinting that you can go straight to the final challenge, actually pretty cool, also when they key was broken so the guy no-clips in the demo.

                                                    As someone who's a 3d platformer enthusiast, I'm a bit more forgiving when it comes to those type of games but..... Yooka-Laylee was already looking bad from the start, and thus it had mixed reception on it due to Empty worlds, some bugs, and drama about a famous youtuber. From the looks of that, I think they decided to maybe test the waters to see if Yooka is a success in the 2d plat-former category. I was hoping this might of been a sequel to the first game, But maybe if this game does well, They could possibly look back at the first game and see what they did wrong. and give us a nice polished and balanced 3d platformer. I'm hoping we get this because 2d platformers are a bit overdone, and too saturated. I feel like today we don't have enough 3d platformers on current gen.

                                                        The original yooka laylee game just had some annoying levels. otherwise i think it was a good game.

                                                                This looks very promising, but I hope this new 2D platforming won't become the primary play style in new entries in the series. I'd personally love to see another 3D Yooka Laylee in the future
