Super Lucky's Tale
Top Critic Average
There's definitely some potential in Super Lucky's Tale but the content here is limited and locked behind a forced search for hidden secrets
Amongst the like of Super Mario Odyssey, Yooka-Laylee, Sonic Mania, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and even Cuphead, Super Lucky's Tale trails far behind. If you only own an Xbox One and are desperate for some platforming, then you'll have a decent time with Super Lucky's Tale
This sequel to the VR-exclusive Lucky’s Tale shoulders the responsibility of launching a new Xbox hardware iteration and also proving itself in the world of traditional 3D platformers, and does a spectacularly average job of both
For the price and the fact that this is the only brand new title designed with the Xbox One X in mind releasing with the console, Super Lucky's Tale is worth your time. It would also provide plenty of fun for all ages on the Xbox One family of consoles and Windows 10 PC's.
Super Lucky’s Tale is still a good-hearted family fun title that should pride itself on being a game that all ages can enjoy, and by completion, you will truly feel you have been treated to a game that does well in immersing you into the story of a small young fox, and the adventure he embarks on.
Microsoft's previous attempts at a platforming title have failed many times before. This time they have something with potential in Super Lucky's Tale, but they might need to use some of those gold clovers to balance out the bad luck it currently has.
Overall, Super Lucky's Tale is definitely not something that platforming fanatics are going to want to pick up. This game is more suited to children or people who are just starting to getting into platformers as everything feels like it could have been so much more.
Ultimately, Super Lucky’s Tale is too conservative to be much more than good, especially when combined with some of its more questionable design choices.
Super Lucky’s Tale is an incredible looking game with the gameplay to match. The gang at Playful Corp. have put out a family friendly, yet challenging game with lots to look at, loads to do, enough collectables to keep you entertained for hours.
Super Lucky's Tale is designed for a very particular audience and for a very particular purpose, and manages to pull that off with flair - but it'll alienate anyone outside of that.
