A disappointing redux

I was really excited when I first heard Nintendo was going to bring out a sequel to Yoshi's Island since it's one of my favorite games of all time. Too bad they decided to let Artoon handle it.

It's not that this is a bad game, but once you played the original, if feels like much more of the same without any of the platform magic that Nintendo instils in the original.

The ability to being able to switch characters may sound like a welcome addition but it adds surprisingly little to the overall game.

With all this, I'm mildly disappointed that Nintendo didn't bother building this themselves. Oh well, we still have the original and you can get it on the GBA.

I got this game for Christmas and had never played Yoshi's Island before. I instantly fell in love with it. It's beautifully rendered with vibrant colors and easy to master controls. And because there is no time limit, you can spend more time exploring each world instead of rushing to beat the clock. This game is the perfect level of difficulty for a non-hardcore gamer such as myself: not so easy that it's boring, but not so difficult that you will get frustrated and shut it off. Best DS game I've played so far.
