ToeJam and Earl: Back in the Groove is an all-new adventure developed by the co-creator of the OG ToeJam and Earl games, which famously infused hip-hop stylings with rogue-like game play. Crash land on Earth and protect yourself with funky power-ups against dangerous Earthlings on an adventure to find all the lost pieces of the Rapmaster Rocketship. Play with up to three of your friends online or couch co-op and discover all the secret locations and powerful tools. ToeJam and Earl probably shouldn't have taken the Rapmaster on an intergalactic joyride, but at least they'll find all the pieces of it before Lamont notices that it's missing ... right? Right.

There is a bit of novelty to Back in the Groove, but at the end of the day, the game will only appeal to the most hardcore fans out there. It is a boring, tedious experience that has the look and feel of its predecessors, but lacks the satirical charm. ToeJam & Earl struggle to find any form of relevance in 2019 beyond a quick nostalgia fix.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this game going in, as Kickstarted reboots of cult series don’t always go well. But ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove is a solid game that sets itself as the definitive entry in the series. It does the best thing a game like this can do, really. It updates a beloved classic while maintaining everything people loved about it.
While the commitment HumaNature Studios made to make an actual sequel to the original ToeJam & Earl is commendable, the gameplay just feels way too dated. ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove is truly the sequel fans were probably waiting for, it’s just 20 years too late.
