it plays just like the old Yoshis island but with way cooler graphics, mini games, hidden areas, and different characters. The levels are lucious with lots of cool things and places to go. For those of you who said this game reaks you must not like the Mario series. For those of you who said that this other company that made it didn't do a good job and are in question of why nintendo didn't just do it themselves, The games KILLER, you can't tell they didn't make it, and do you REALLY think Nintendo would let another company make a sequel to Yoshi's island or any Mario game at that without making sure it was totally beyond being up to par????? Come on people it's a Mario game for crying out loud!!!! It Rules. For those of you who said it's just for little kids, hahaha, Im 25 years old and Im still playing Mario and loving it!!! The Mario franchise has sole over 93 Million copies of theyre games and that puts them at the top for any franchise game ever sold by millions so you can't go wrong here trust me. Rent it and see for yourself. Long levels, tons of fun, enough replay to keep ya going for a bit as well. one thing though if your looking for something that utilizes the touch screen this does nothing in Yoshi's island DS except the menu screens and options/adjustments. However it does use the Dual Screens very well making the environment twice as big as it would be!! If you like Mario World, or Yoshi's Island (Original SNES) You'll love Yoshi's Island DS!!!!

OK.Let's start out simple.I've got the first one on Super Nintendo.What I like:the new storyline;new levels;and(if you didn't already notice on the cover like I did)different babies. What I hate:(grab some popcorn folks)the fact that they made the controls EXACTLY the same;no new abilities;I hate this one the most.THEY NEVER WORKED OUT YOSHI'S MOTOR SKILL PROBLEMS!!AFTER HE JUMPS ON SOMETHING HE JUST GOES SLIDING OFF THE EDGE OF THE TEENY-WEENY LITTLE PLATFORM!!WHEN YOU RUN TOWARDS AN ENEMY,YOU CAN'T STOP,NOT UNTIL IT EATS YOU!!AND WHEN THAT HAPPENS,YOU LOSE YOUR EGGS!!AND THEY DISAPEAR AFTER 2 SECONDS!!ON THE FIRST ONE THEY JUST STAYED THERE!!Huuuuuuuhh... People,don't come to this waste if you don't have a Super Nintendo or the real Yoshi Island.
