Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair
Top Critic Average
Summary: Following a middling debut, Yooka and Laylee are back and at their best in The Impossible Lair. Though the game struggles to balance difficulty well, it's still usually worth the trouble thanks to a great sense of the genre from the former Rare devs who once monkied around with a similar series.
