“The Impossible Lair is definitely a better attempt at capturing the magic of platformers than Yooka-Laylee’s first crack at it, but it’s still not remarkable.”
“Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair neatly captures the essence of Yooka-Laylee and reimagines it as a new type of game.”
“Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is an extremely enjoyable 2.5D platform game that features a familiar experience and some very interesting ideas for the overworld map.”
-Francesco De Meo
“Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is a fantastic sophomore effort that pays tribute to Rare’s past and establishes Playtonic as one of the UK’s most exciting studios”.
“The Impossible Lair is, despite the name, a shockingly easy undertaking outside its final challenge.”
“Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is an excellent 2D platformer full of surprises and delights for fans nostalgic for the glory days of the genre.”
