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...

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...

22 August 2002
  • Excerpt: The sequel to the highly popular SNES game, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, arrives as an update for the N64.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Nice graphics, retro style 2 - D
  • Cons: Not enough in the game (1 player only)

  • 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...
  • Pros: Beautiful graphics, even in 2D; fun; wonderful sound effects
  • Cons: Storyline very bare - bones !  Badly structured .

A game that really does not work

  • 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.
  • Pros: Great for kids
  • Cons: Very dull, too easy, 2D

  • Excerpt: Go back to basics with a 2-d side-scrolling platformer that has amazing graphics, and loads of levels to keep you happy. Yoshi comes alive bursting with personality- enhanced by the N64. Fantastic depth of control features all of Yoshi’s trademark moves!.
  • Pros: A mario Game
  • Cons: A bit annoying

  • Excerpt: For a 2D platformer, this game has really brilliant graphics..and the music is good too. To play, it is no doubt fun, with some nice ideas. The idea of having to collect 30 fruit, rather than having to get to the end of the level, is original.

  • Excerpt: Aah, yoshi's story. The memories. It was the first game I got with my N64, but also the first game I sold with my N64. It is a 2D platformer - rare on the N64. And it's so...darn...cute. <sniff>. You play as the Yoshis, finding their way through a storybook.
  • Pros: Reasonable graphics and sound, Gameplay okay
  • Cons: 2D, Longevity

  • Excerpt: This game is by nintendo. Every game Nintendo does is good. This is no exception, although its different. This game takes a break from the normal violent or competetive nature of the normal games, this is relaxing.
  • Pros: Cuteness !  Music, Layout, Easiness
  • Cons: A Bit Short - lived, aimed at younger audiences
