Retro Review: Yoshi’s Island (Pure Nintendo)

Pure Nintendo: "Video games can be very powerful. Not just powerful in its graphics or cinematics, but the emotional effect that they can have on gamers is pretty astounding when you really take a look at it. Every gamer has his or her own preference of what is known as their comfort food of games. It’s that one game that we reach to when we feel depressed, angered or just down right bummed out. I’ll admit that I have many comfort games, but one in particular is Yoshi’s Island for the SNES." (Retro) 9.6/10

Good title
Though I'm from the group of the few who couldn't play the game in its entirety, because of baby Mario's excessive crying (that's only if you failed often, and got damaged).

Really annoying at first but you end up getting so used to it you barely hear it. Fantastic game though, been a few years since I've last played it.

Remember my sister getting this for Xmas. Thought it was a girls game. Caved in and played it with her 1 day and loved it. Great game

Loved this game as a kid. I still remember the joy of reaching the final boss because it looked stunning.

The crying baby drops it down on the list.

The Japanese LOVE to include annoying characters in games for some ignorant reason. I love them, their culture and of course their games and music, but I'll never understand their NEED to put annoying things into games.

I would pay $70 a game if I knew 100% that nothing would be annoying...no part in the game and no characters.

Classic! Played it as a child on my SNES and was thrilled the day I finished it.

Great game man. I would get soooo mad when they would take baby mario. Awesome memories. Made my day.

I just love the crazy effects they did with the SuperFX chip. While other developers were doing faux polygons Miyamoto was making one of the best looking sprite-based games ever.
