  • Summary: Yoshi’s New Island is a good choice for those who loved the SNES game or even the sequel on the original DS. If you couldn’t download the SNES game via Nintendo’s Ambassador program, it’s a decent second option.

Auracore MediaWorks

  • Summary: One of Super Nintendo’s best is reimagined on 3DS.
  • Pros: Handles greatly with it simple control scheme, fun infant-like art style
  • Cons: Although a sequel to the original, stage progression and story is quite similar to it; pointless multiplayer

Yoshi's New Island

High-Def Digest
31 March 2014
  • Summary: Lapping up enemies and popping out eggs with the expediency of the world's last asexual rabbit belongs to just one video game character, and in Nintendo's recent reproduction of popular platforming franchises at a similar rate, it's no surprise that Yoshi returns in his own adventure.

An Uninspired Return

Game Informer
13 March 2014
  • Conclusion: Concept: Babysit Mario as a collection of Yoshis Graphics: Not offensively bad, but a downgrade from the crisp visuals of the original Sound: Despite some hummable tunes, the soundtrack has nothing particularly memorable Playability: Everything controls fine, but an animation pause disrupts the egg-tossing process Entertainment: Perfectly playable and sometimes a nice challenge, but lacks its own identity Replay: Moderately Low

Yoshi’s New Island

GameTrailers
13 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Once upon a time, Nintendo took its biggest mascot and put him in the backseat of his own franchise. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island sent the Mario Bros. back to their infancy, handing the reins to their relatively new dino sidekick. Yoshi's New Island isn't a remake, but it returns to the same touchstones as the SNES original. It follows a similar story, as a stork gets ambushed on its way to deliver Mario and Luigi to their parents.

Innocuous, moderately fun platformer stars Mario’s dino bud.

Common Sense Media
15 January 2014
  • Summary: Parents need to know Yoshi's New Island is a simple platformer game designed with younger players in mind. Its colorful, cheerful aesthetic is reminiscent of Mario games. So is the action, which involves a lot of hopping on cartoon enemies, as well as the Yoshis' signature "swallow-a-foe-and-squat-to-lay-an-egg" move. There are no overt messages, but light themes of teamwork and sibling affection emerge as the story progresses.

  • Summary: Yoshi’s New Island while harkening back to the previous titles does not bring much new to the series though it’s an excellent start for someone new to the series.

  • Cons: Lacking ideas and variation, Occasional misguided tilt controls, Disappointingly short
