5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for me. July 8, 2006
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was happy that a Yoshi game came out so I bought it. Most people don't like the music or gameplay but I do. I think it was kind of neat for the to make the enviorment look like cardboard. It's also nice that you can choose what color Yoshi you want. That's my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Disappointing"?? No way!! April 22, 2002
By A Customer
I wouldn't have submitted this review, epecially since almost all customer reviewers gave this game an appropriately high rating, but I am shocked, SHOCKED! by the negative "official" review that Amazon has placed at the top of the page. I couldn't disagree more strongly with the snide dismissal of Yoshi's bright and happy world, or the dis of the 2-D like side scrolling action of the game, which recalls classic video games from back in the day.
This is a WONDERFUL game for young and old alike. Needless to say, if your taste in video games runs to first person shooters and blood and gore this probably isn't your cuppa, but I was enraptured by the gorgeous graphics and beautiful music. In terms of graphics, music, and game play, this is the best product that I've seen for the N64. (The music in the early Mario family games produced for the N64 annoyed the heck out of me.) In "Yoshi's Story" Nintendo has recaptured the magic of its best games for the NES and SNES, only using the 64-bit system to its highest potential. True vintage happy smiley Nintendo!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yoshi's Story: sniffing out the truth April 3, 2001
As you may have read, the general consensus is that Yoshi's Story is a fine 2D platformer for children to play, but offers little challenge for the rest of the market. I strongly disagree with this.
I have been an avid gamesplayer for nigh on 11 years, from the NES (Famicom) right through to the N64. I own virtually every Mario/Yoshi title, and Yoshi's Story is my favourite to date.
True, if a player just plunders through the game, it can be finished within an hour, two at most. But dedicated gamers will find themselves caught in the real groove. The hook in this game is to NURUTRE your Yoshi.
Different fruits are favoured/disfavoured by each Yoshi. A casual gamer who just wants another straightforward platformer will find such mushy sentiment ludicrous and down as many of any kind of fruit possible to finish the game. However, a devoted gamer will discover the joy in sniffing out and hunting down their Yoshi's favourite fruit.
All Yoshi's love melons, and to find all 30 in one course, as well as the three hearts needed to unlock each world, AND to discover the secret White and Black Yoshis, PLUS killing every shyguy to make Yoshi's happiness quota higher, not to mention finding power bees, and collecting every coin from every course to unlock a rumoured 'hidden' Yoshi, is a gargantuan task indeed. Of course, there a those who just won't care about all this. But to those few dedicated gamers, who, like me, appreciate the subtler side of computer entertainment, I urge you, BUY THIS GAME!
FYI, I got to the end credits in an hour. A year on, I'm still looking for all the secrets. And this is a gamer whos finished each and every Zelda game (excluding Majora's Mask) within six weeks, tops.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great kid's game February 29, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
We rented this game one weekend for our 5-year-old and she loved it so much we bought it. It's a game she can actually play and not get killed or kicked out within the first 30 seconds. She likes to have her father and I play the higher levels over and over again so she can watch and learn what to do. A nice feature is being able to play any level you choose without having to go through the lower levels first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yoshi's Story is great for Kids! January 6, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great game for small children. I was looking for something aimed at younger kids and this is perfect. My daughter has trouble with more difficult games and loses interest, but she loves Yoshi's story! I definately recommend it for younger children, but it is a bit boring for older kids and adults.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Adventure March 7, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Yoshi's Story is one of my favorite games on the N64. It has a lot of replayability, great level design and large, open environments.

Exploring is really the core of this game. Branching paths allow you to open up new routes for you to explore. Secret areas are everywhere in this game and it pays to look for them. Once you complete the story mode, play it again. It gives you new levels to try out each time. Once you unlock those levels, you can play them again instantly with a quick level select option. Replayability is high in this game. I had played the story mode a dozen times before I discovered a boss I hadn't fought before.

This game isn't that easy, not if you really take the time to seek out all the high scoring fruit and hearts. I'm not sure why people are saying it is. In fact, levels in the last world can get pretty challenging with all kinds of traps. It makes you want to grab as many fruit as you can to fill your quota before you lose.

Great music compliments this game. As I explored, I was wildly entertained by all the unique sound effects.

The controls are rock solid so you won't have any trouble with that.

I really don't know what other game to compare this to, so I can't really say if you'll like it. It's a one of a kind game that deserves at least a look. My recommendation is to look up some gameplay videos and decide if it looks like something you would enjoy.
