Yoshi's Island DSTHE GOOD: Alot of things are really good about this game. I love how the game is vast and tricky. I like the whole setup of the game, it reminds me of Yoshi's Story for the N64, because it is a side-scroller.
I like the the graphics, the good old, painting-like graphics are awesome.
I do love parts of the story in the game, like the cut-scene where you get Baby Wario and Baby Bowser, and how Wario ends up leaving, and how Baby Bowser turns on the team at the end (And trys) to kick our butts.
The whole storyline of the game, the problems, the plot, the characters, the graphics, etc, are all examples of a great 2D Yoshi-revolved platformer created by none other than the oh-so-beloved (and famed) Nintendo!
This game, was DEFINITELY worth what I paid for it!
THE BAD: One of the things that I don't like about this game, however, is the difficulty level. The creators seem to be able to fit in ALOT of enemies in some levels, and like the huge spiky creatures that fall down and crush everything behind you, you have to run fast AND be able to jump- while running still. There are more reasons like this, but none are worth mentioning.
Another thing that I don't like, is the length. In usual games with Mario in them, there are eight worlds, in this game (yes I understand the main character is Yoshi this time) there are only 4 worlds, each with what, 8 levels? Anyhow, that is one thing I don't like, because I love the length of games that stretch for at least a compiled 10 hour radius including breaks, sleeping etc.
Other reasons why I dislike this game, aren't NEARLY as complicated or as "bad" as the others.
One other reason I dislike this game, is because of the way that Nintendo tried to fit the whole story of Yoshi and the Babies on one DS system, but this could be a reason the game is not as long as the rest
Eh, I have pretty much covered up this section. Those mentioned COULD have been improved. (in my opinion)
SUMMARY: With a somewhat good Yoshi-based boss-filled game at hand, Nintendo COULD have improved upon in this game around the flaws I mentioned.
This is a good game, though, so don't let this review tell you otherwise. I am satisfied to say that this is one of Nintendo's better titles based on our favorite green Dino pal Yoshi, but you just gotta miss the old edgy graphics of the ol' N64 Yoshi's Story, am I right? I believe so.
And as I said earlier, this game was and I beleive still to be worth the money I paid for it!
Anyhow, this game is a good game, and I have no regrets in buying it and playing it from the beginning to the end!
