Summary: I noticed that the reviews about the game are mainly criticizing it when they compare it to the original Yoshi's Island, if there's to be any criticism warranted. As someone who did not have the benefit of playing the original, my experience with this game is based on its own merits, and yes,...
Summary: If you like the mario and yoshi franchises, you will like this game. I am 30 and have been playing these games since I was five. I play my gameboy a few times a year, mostly when I am sick, traveling, or otherwise incapacitated.
Very mediocre Yoshi title. Better than Yoshi's Story, but not by much.

Summary: I've been a longtime fan of Yoshi, and was pretty disappointed in this game. The game is initially fun, and hearkens back to the glory days of the Super Nintendo classic, but the "new" stuff is all pretty lame.
The original will always be the best. But this does ok.

Summary: This game is fun don't get me wrong, but their is some things I don't like. The first thing you'll notice when starting up is the god awful music. My god I can't believe this made it into the game. The original Yoshi's Island had some fantastic music.
Summary: This is a kick off your shoes and just have fun game that makes a great gift and perfect for travel, especially those with younger children. No worries of it being kid friendly. A big plus for a gaming collection and Amazon always has great prices.
Get the original SNES Yoshi's Island from the virtual store.

Summary: If you want the real Yoshi's Island experience, you need to play the original from the Super Nintendo. Any system that can play this game has a virtual store where you can buy the original SNES game and download it to your 3ds, 3ds XL, or 2ds, it will also be cheaper.
Summary: Just like I remember when I played it on N64. My son loves it I have to wait till he falls asleep to get my chance. Best gift I could find the game is in my sons words AWESOME! Can't beat that.
