Really Bad

Extreme Dissapointment.

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.

Yoshis Island DS is a clever remake of the snes game Yoshis Island. Although I found some flaws like the game is too short.(With only 5 worlds a skilled gamer could probaly beat it in about five days.Tops) And while I found the levels very hard, the bosses were about as easy as putting jelly on toast. The stork stop is a good addition to the game, but trust me you will use baby DK most of the time to avoid the crying the other babys.Despite the flaws this gamee is worth buying.But because its so short I would rent it.

DIRECTORS CUT

Nintendo is doing a great job at re-inventing the platformer genre, and continues with this almost-copy of Yoshis Island. Personally, the original snes yoshis island is my favorite mario game of all time. It still is, but this is my second. There arent a TON of new additions to the original, but whats available is great : new babies. Nothing is more fun than controlling yoshi with either baby wario, donkey kong, or bowser, NOTHING. The graphics are colorful, the sound is great, and the gameplay is actually pretty hard. If you havent played the original island, play this instead, its pretty much the DIRECTORS CUT of the first anyway. If you have, play this anyway. It is a nice trip down memory road, and a very welcome addition to the growing platforming ds library.
