Yoshi’s New Island Review | GameCloud

Patrick at GameCloud writes: "I haven’t lost hope in Nintendo: Smash Bros., the promise of a new Zelda on the Wii U somewhere on the distant horizon, and the potential of the virtual console (if they ever fully realise it). These are all things that make me think they’ve still got a shot at pulling themselves out of the slump they seem to have landed themselves in at the beginning of this generation of consoles. Games like Yoshi’s New Island, however, are making some pretty sizable dents in my sunny optimism. The game had a lot of promise and given what it’s predecessors had delivered, I expected a lot more from this game, which I just didn’t get. Considering this is a first party title, and it’s not the first of late to have fallen short of the mark, it’s disappointing to see this kind of performance from Nintendo." (3DS, Yoshi's New Island) 6/10
