Pure Nintendo: "Yoshi’s Island is meant to be enjoyed by all. Lives aren’t in short supply, and can quickly be built up. Frankly, difficulty matters little when a game’s this good – it should be accessible to everyone! Fill up the scoreboard if you want extra challenge – getting a 100% is no small feat. Yoshi’s Island shouldn’t be missed. Its arrival with the early wave of GBA Virtual Console games is cause for excitement, especially since we never got the SNES original. Here we have an outstanding game, with some new secret levels to unlock, and a reminder of how great the GBA was for SNES ports. Adorable, cheerful, and just plain fun, Yoshi’s Island is a platforming gem!"
