Yoshi’s New Island review

 

Yoshi's New Island is a good game, even if it isn't one that'll change the world. From the moment you start, it feels effortless and breezy, even when it's challenging. So breezy, in fact, that you find yourself forgetting that it ain't easy out there...

Solid, distinctive platforming ; Fetching visuals that shame other recent Nintendo throwbacks ; Fine-tuned difficulty

Lullaby music could cure insomnia ; Irritating motion control vehicle stages

Yoshi's New Island isn't the creative masterclass in platforming the original was, but it is the best platformer Nintendo's released for the Nintendo 3DS to date.

Yoshi's New Island (for Nintendo 3DS)

 

Yoshi's New Island is a solid platformer that sadly lacks the child-like crayon drawing graphics that made the first game work so well.

Solid gameplay. Well-designed levels. Lots of collectibles

Watercolor art design looks strange and lack's the original game's charm. Uneven difficulty

Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island: It's a chain of classic games that hold up to this day. Yoshi's Island stood out thanks to its incredible charm, which Nintendo hasn't quite been able to...

Shadowrun: Dragonfall

 

Dragonfall is an expansion in name, but its characters, story, and approach to gameplay feel more like a sequel. I adored the vibrant storytelling of Shadowrun Returns, set in the magic-drenched streets of Seattle. Dragonfall brings us across the pond...

Yoshi’s New Island: Smile like a Yoshi, cry like a baby

 

The pace of the Yoshi's Island franchise has always served as its trademark: its timer-free approach makes it a contemplative, measured sort of game… until you get hit or reach a special section, at which point it becomes one of the most stressful...

Solid platforming design, surprisingly-fun transformations

Often-infuriating collectibles, off-kilter audio

Yoshi's New Island review: Not quite dino-might

 

Mario games, the good ones, anyway, are a gestalt, rising above their sundry components to become something truly special. Yoshi's New Island is no such beast. It is exactly the sum of its expertly-hewn parts, offering a platforming experience that is...

The third installment in this beloved franchise makes its way to the Nintendo 3DS system.

Review: Yoshi’s New Island for 3DS

 

Yoshi has returned, and for better or worse he's brought along his entire family to help keep Baby Mario alive and rescue Baby Luigi. Yoshi's New Island for the 3DS bring back the […]

Ultimately, Yoshi’s New Island is an enjoyable puzzle experience that feels just familiar enough that it carefully walks the line between a new experience and a repeated attempt at an existing game. The puzzles cross a variety of skill levels and the...

Yoshi’s New Island Fails To Innovate, But Never To Charm

 

Yoshi's New Island is no masterpiece, and it can feel unsightly at times, but at the same time, it's so damn endearing.

Kamek plays a larger role in this game than in the previous one. Instead of having two battles with different magically-enhanced enemies, you always face off with Kamek in each world’s mid-boss stage. Don’t worry, though! These battles are a lot of fun.

Yoshi’s New Island review

 

New island, same Yoshi.

Yoshi’s New Island doesn’t live up to its namesake, falling short of delivering anything that’s notably “new”. Any attempts to breathe fresh ideas into its existing formula goes by the wayside, with a general feel of wasted potential running throughout...

Almost 20 years since Yoshi's Island first hit the SNES, the Mario spinoff series gets only its third..

He should've stayed on his old island...

It looks nice

It's like pulling teeth ; It's so dull ; Zero challenge
