And so after waiting many months for the glorious return of the 3D platformer, here's our review of Yooka-Layle. And just when you were wondering what a new 3D platformer for ex-Rare developers who worked on many of the classic titles from the N64-era would look like, comes the answer. Something almost identical. With Yooka-Laylee being Banjo Threeie in all-but name only.

From navigating the menu to that first moment you take control of both Yooka and Laylee, it’s hard not to shake the sense that you’re playing a game from a different era. Bright worlds to explore, colourful characters to talk to, tongue in cheek humour that could only come from the UK, and pun-driven puzzles by the truckload. And all presented to you in Banjo Kazooie-vision – with identical fonts, layouts, transitions, and that unmistakable art style first seen in the 64-bit era classic. Whether or not the Banjo formula works as well today as it did in the late-‘90s is something you’ll need to figure your for yourself. After all, I’m the sort of person who could just as easily fire-up the HD re-release of Banjo Kazooie annually. And wilfully ignore all faults with its design.

Yeah the camera is the area I've found to be the most frustrating part of the whole experience, but they haven't missed a step otherwise since the old days...

Hey Jez, apparently the patch fixes a bunch of performance issues and a few of the camera problems too.
