Yoshi's Island DS Review

Yoshi's Island DS is a thoroughly enjoyable platformer, but it's not going to make the same impact as its illustrious predecessor.

      lol @ not dying a whole lot...obviously the reviewer didn't play the game after beating the first two worlds. world 4 and 5 are enough to make you break your ds.

      with that said, IMO, this game is boring, repetetive, and a chore to finish and get 100% on all levels. whats the point? everything after 4-4 is equal to or greater in difficulty than ANY yoshi's island (snes) extra level.

      the baby thing is very, VERY gimmicky. mario is the only one that DOESN'T handicap yoshi. i find myself using mario unless i absolutely have to use one of the other babies because mario has better control.

      the music is garbage in this game. outside of the first level in the first world, all the other themes are lame. all of the bosses are lame, with the sole exception of the bird boss on the 4th level. that boss fight was hot. i'll give yoshi's island ds that...its too bad the music in the background wasn't easily as hot, but yeah...that would have been dope on the big screen.

      overall this game gets a 6.5/10

      music: 3/10
      graphics: 8/10 (original was better IMO)
      gameplay: 6/10
      replay value: depends...i'm very turned off at the difficulty. its not a fun hard, if that makes sense...yoshi's island was fun and hard. yoshi's island ds is just stupid hard in some areas. its like...you die 30 times (no exaggeration) to figure out how not to die in one area because you don't know what to do. the dual screens thing is wack as well.

        oh, the last thing i'll say..
        if you have a choice between buying this game or the original yoshi's island for the gba, just buy that game for your ds. its better by far.

            This game is great. I used a cheat to unlock all the levels, which makes it so much easier. The other two save files are still stuck in World 2, while I play in my Clear! game, to practice. (That's usually all I do)
            In any case, you'll be hooked on this game. All babies are over-adorable (except for Wario) and have amazing abilities. Bowser is my favorite, you don't have to waste your eggs, you can just use fire.
