Yoshi's Woolly World is cute. Everything about the game is designed to make players coo “Aww” as they bounce through the 50ish joyful stages on their way to the conclusion. The way Yoshi shouts “Bum” as he gobbles up an enemy and poops them out as a ball of yarn? Sweet. The sad look Yoshi wears on his face when he's close to death? Adorable. All this cuteness, though, feels like soft padding around a decidedly ordinary platformer, which knits together some well-worn ideas from the last 20 years of gaming without adding much to the mix.
