If there are two things a 3D platformer cannot have, it’s a crappy camera and sluggish controls.
Super Lucky’s Tale has guess what? a crappy camera and sluggish controls. Those problems and the general sense that you’re playing a generic Mario imitation totally blow the potential of this cute, family-friendly game.
To Lucky’s credit, the mission variety across its four worlds isn’t bad. Some stages are totally side-scrolling, while others are 3D free-roamers where you’re out to collect four-leaf clovers at the end. And it all looks nice and colorful, if a tad bland. It’s just that actually progressing through those missions is a pain, especially if you’ve recently played the outstanding Super Mario Odyssey.
