Yoshi’s New Island Review – 3DS

Gametactics
31 March 2014
  • Conclusion: While not as good as the original, it’s a step-up from Yoshi’s Island DS, despite some forced gyroscope controls.

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.

Test : Yoshi's New Island

GameHope
12 October 2014
  • Summary: De nouveaux épisodes de Mario, l'année de Luigi... Et qu'en est-il de notre dinosaure préféré, le très sympathique Yoshi ? Parce qu'il ne faudrait tout de même pas oublier qu'il a aussi son importance dans les aventures des deux frères plombiers ! Heureusement, Nintendo a décidé de remettre la bestiole au goût du jour via un nouvel épisode de Yoshi's Island à destination de la 3DS. Alors, retour gagnant ?
  • Pros: Vraiment très joli et plein de couleurs, Des nouveautés sympathiques, Level-design réussi, Possibilité de jouer à deux avec une seule cartouche, Durée de vie conséquente pour le finir à 100%...
  • Cons: ...Mais assez courte en ligne droite (environ 5 heures), Globalement trop facile, Certaines nouveautés trop peu exploitées

Nintendo's favoriete fossiel afgestoft

IGN
4 October 2014
  • Summary: Na jaren van afwezigheid keert de populaire Yoshi's Island-reeks terug. Dit keer in 3D. Naast de oude, vertrouwde gameplay van eieren gooien en op de grond stampen zijn er nu ook Mega-eieren. Met deze gigantische eieren kun je buizen en stenen kapot maken. Hierdoor vul je een meter op die je extra levens geeft.
  • Pros: Prachtige pastel spelwereld, Afwisselend, Niet zo makkelijk als je denkt
  • Cons: Brengt te weinig nieuws, Ontzettend lompe besturing
