Yoshi's Island DS Review

The Hylia
6 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Way back before my time, during the days of the Super NES, a fine platformer game was around that danced all over the others: Yoshi's Island: Super Mario World 2. The game really set the standard for platformers then and it still does now. It's unbelievable that a game like this could look so unique, play so well, and have an almost perfectly-growing difficultly level as it progressed. It's been a while since Yoshi's Island, and it's about time we got a sequel.

  • Conclusion: Overall, Yoshi’s Island DS is still a remarkable game, and definitely one that will please followers of the original. There’s a few niggles with the visuals and sound, not to mention the fact a few things seem to feel recycled from previous outings. Still, its chock full of secrets and exploration thanks to the addition of four new babies, and will keep you busy for some time attempting to uncover everything.

Yoshi's Island (DS) Review

  • Excerpt: Yoshi’s Island first appeared its colorful little self on the Super Nintendo and quickly gained fanfare and respect in the platforming community. The game enables players to play as the lovable dinosaur Yoshi, who takes care of the mustache-less baby Mario. Nearly a decade later Nintendo has brought back this title onto their Nintendo DS with even more babies to take care of. Does this game live up to its heritage or will it surpass it?

  • Excerpt: Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island was a Super Nintendo classic. Rather than putting the weight on Mario to save the day, it was the flutter-kicking, egg-throwing Yoshi who was in the spotlight. In fact, Mario was a mere baby! The game introduced a lot more collecting to the platforming Mario style. It also took emphasis off of jumping on enemies and blocks to solve puzzles and asked you to become a master of egg throwing.
