With everything I’ve seen from Yooka-Laylee, it’s impossible not to say that i really enjoy the games style. But while watching this i noticed something, something that’s been building with every trailer for the game that’s come out so far: this looks boring. The video isn’t ever 14 minuets long, and i was checking the time after 90 seconds. That is not a good sign. As I’ve said before, i really want my impressions for this game to be as wrong as they ever could be. But the fact is, in 14 minuets the game showed me very little to really get excited for. To give the footage its proper due, i did think the mine cart but looked fun….until i realized that that’s been done before. A lot. And then i started questioning why there was a mine cart in a casino, but i can chalk that up to video game weirdness.
Maybe the game just doesn’t translate well to a passive experience. That’s what i’m hoping for. As for now though, i don’t think i can lower my expectations much lower.
