Yoshi's Island

(warning, crappy review i made on my forum forever and a half ago)

Yoshi's Island was a great game released on Super Famicom in Japan, and later on the Super Nintendo everywhere else, and then again on the gameboy advance and Nintendo DS.

This game was a prologue to the entire Mario series, dating back to when Mario was still just a baby.

While the stork was delivering Mario and Luigi to their parents, the evil koopa wizard Kamek made them take an unexpected detour.
His reason? He foresaw the 2 babies posing a threat to his master in later years, and wanted to dispose of them early on.

However, the stork dropped Mario in the forest, thus leaving the Yoshi herd to find him, and take him to his brother, so that the stork could complete the delivery.

Now, I like this story, it is very nicely thought out, and pretty "in depth" i suppose.
However, this story is never elaborated on in later games, and we never learn who Mario and Luigi's parent are.

for the story, i'll give it a 7/10

The game gave the player the ability to control Yoshi's over the standard Mario character. Each yoshi could hop, stomp eat and spit enemies, or swallow them, thus making an egg, which could be thrown.
However, the player could only have 6 eggs with them at one time.

Each level gave the player a set of items to collect, and collecting them all gave the player a perfect completion, completing all levels in a world with a perfect score unlocked a bonus game and level.

Every four levels presented a new boss for the player to fight, and with six worlds, there were 12 total bosses in the game. Each boss has a different fight and way to defeat them, though they are slightly repetitve.

The game is still great in gameplay though

I give this games gameplay a 9/10


This game had neat graphics, with much detail added in to the sprites.

The foregrounds and backgrounds had great detail, and were not repetitve in the slightest.

I give the graphics a 10/10

Now, this game had awesome music. They were all very well made, and really heightened the gaming experience.

Music is a solid 10/10

I love this game, and I'm sure a lot of other people do to.

I give this game a solid 9/10

It's simple. That doesn't make it bad at all, though. It's just to the point, which some may prefer, however, I feel like you took a shot cut in doing it that way...anyway, as I said, it isn't bad. It's just simple.

Not bad.

and is it just me, or does the rock structure in that picture vaguely look like the figure of a woman in panties?

Either you're right, or your mind is a morbid place.
