In the first Yoshi's Island, Kamek kidnapped Baby Luigi while Baby Mario fell to Yoshi's Island. The Yoshi's rallied together to reunite Mario with his brother. The adventure was long, satisfying and quite a challenge. In the sequel on DS, Kamek is up to his dirty tricks again, but the key difference is that now the Yoshi's are taking care of more than one baby.
A lot of gameplay mechanics from the first one return. As you go through levels Yoshi does pretty much all that he did in the first one. That is to say you can jump and hover briefly, ground pound, make enemies into eggs and throw those eggs, as well as spitting your enemies back out at others. In this aspect Yoshi's Island has not changed at all. In addition to all this, keeping track of the baby on your back is also the same. If Yoshi ever touches an enemy he'll lose the baby off his back and a timer starts to countdown. You have to recover the baby before the timer runs out or else you lose a life. Also like in the first one, stars refill the counter.
There's more that returns. The completion of the game is a spot on match to the first one. As you go through levels you'll see flowers, red coins among the normal ones, and stars that need collecting. Upon completing a level you'll be given a score out of 100.Read more ›
This new game picks up where the previous one left off. The evil wizard, Kamek, having already been thwarted once by those insufferable Yoshis, kidnaps Baby Mario and Baby Luigi a second time, along with all of the other babies in the world.Read more ›
No, here you just lose your baby for a few seconds, and if you don't capture him/her soon enough, it's curtains!
Nintendo has added lots of creativity to this new effort, including new monsters, new bosses, and new skill sets to get from one level to the next. I see lots of reviews saying its more of the same. I guess so. But isn't that the story with most sequels? Even movies! So, why not bring back the most fun and exciting parts of the game that we all remember was so much fun. And don't we have a totally new "audience" of gamers. Gamers start young, my son is only 5. While he did play the original (when he was around 3) on the GBA SP (well original if you were born 10+ years after the life of the SNES), there are probably literally 1000's of new fresh gamers this game will appeal to.
As Yoshi's Island is my absolute favorite game of all time, I was a "no-brainer" as a potential customer of this one. Well, it was a "no-brainer." I happen to have some brains, as I love this game!
I would recommend any DS owner, or gift giver to pick this one up. I can't quite give it 5 stars (some of the gameplay and control are just a tad too frustrating) but the fun factor is way up there at 5 stars.
Great Game! Let's see more of this!

I never played Yoshi's Island on the SNES when it came out. It wasn't until an anthology game that included it as part of the collection that I got to play it, and I loved it. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Shane B.
