A good game to start your kids on but not much for us unfortunately

Excerpt: Background Let's face it back in the 90s Yoshi the ever starving dinosaur was due a comeback after the SNES/super Nintendo's highly successful super Mario world and Yoshi's island which involved this reptilian chap helping Mario or Luigi out in some form or another. In this game however is not really associated with the Mario brothers in any direct way, I think that it is supposed to be in the timeline somewhere between the time where you save baby Mario and reunite him...
Excerpt: In Yoshi land the happy fruit tree has been stolen by the evil baby bowser because Baby Bowser is jealous of all the happiness they have been given so he puts a curse in the story and this is stealing the tree, what all six Yoshis must do is to help find the happy fruit tree. There are different color Yoshi which are : green, light blue, dark blue, pink, red, yellow There are six levels to the game, all got four seperate games, the first one is in Yoshi world, second...
Excerpt: This is probably one of the few 2D plat formers that I played on the N64, though it was quite entertaining when I was younger I am now finding it slightly babyish and a little too easy. The plot is pretty simple baby bowser steals a super happy tree from the land of Yoshi's and happiness leaves the land leaving everyone sad. Six new Yoshi's are born at this time and take it upon them to get the tree back and return joy to the land.
Get it if you can find it super cheap but just be ready to vomit if you decide to play.

Excerpt: I remember this game here being hyped nearly to death by magazines and game shows before it was finally released in 1998. With the ambitious Yoshi's Story video game Nintendo here tried to create a good old fashion 2D action title since players around the world still love those traditional style platformers like amazing games Super Mario World (awesome game!) or the original Yoshi's Island (good too).
Excerpt: the basic story line behind the game is that you have to play as the yoshi's and help them defeat bowser through a story book. At first the yoshi's are cute but then you start dieing and you begin to get very annoyed at them.The levels themselves require you to find and eat 30 pieces of juicy fruit in order to move on to the next one the levels are riddled with four types of fruit (watermelon, grape, apple and banana).
Excerpt: The sequel to the highly popular SNES game, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, arrives as an update for the N64. The game has remained faithful to the original: it has retained the 2D format, rather than the more common 3D, and some of the features from the original game, such as the eating of various objects, and the general movement of Yoshi, have remained intact.
Excerpt: It was the second game I got with my N64, and the first game I sold with my N64. It is a 2D platformer - rare on the N64. And it's so darn cute. You play as the Yoshis, finding their way through a storybook. The graphics are good pre-rendered, but as with the whole game in two dimensions.
Excerpt: This game is beautifully constructed, t he graphics are supreme for a single player 2-d adventure game. There are nice touches to the gameplay, such as the addition of the mario one style warp pipes, and this is a classic SNES conversion gmae, on the N64. The graphics have been given th e2-D but 3-D impression, making the game look lovely. The water effects on the later levels are astounding.
Excerpt: To be honest, I was a little dismayed by the reviews this game got when it came out; but, nonetheless, I went out and bought it and haven't been truly disappointed at any stage. This isn't to say that Yoshi's Story 64 doesn't have its little foibles which get on your nerves; for example, the way the stage on each world you choose influences the number of stages that will be available to you in the next world (if, for example, you choose Level 1 in World 1, Level 1 ONLY...
Pros: Beautiful graphics, even in 2D; fun; wonderful sound effects
Cons: Storyline very bare - bones ! Badly structured .
Excerpt: Yoshi's Story sounded like it could be an interesting game to me. Nintendo games are those which I usually enjoy playing the most. They are fun to play and they usually take a while to complete. This game, however, is one that I never wish to play again in my life. It was obviously designed for kids, and it serves it's purpose well, but for anyone over the age of about 4, this game is as easy and as dire as watching paint dry.
