We really liked Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair. Playtonic dropped the full-3D approach of the original for a purer 2.5D look, and, in our book, came up with something of a spiritual successor to the Donkey Kong Country series (yes, we know that series is ongoing, but this was made by the many of the original team members).

We awarded the title an impressive 9/10 in our review, stating that "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".

If you've for some reason decided against buying the game up to this point, then you might be interested to learn that it's currently on sale with 33% off the normal price. If you're in the UK, that's £16.74, down from £24.99. European buyers can get it for 20.09 € (instead of the usual 29.99 €). UPDATE: It's also 33% off in North America and Japan.

Will this price drop tempt you to part with your cash? Let us know by posting a comment.
