The GameExplain Review changed my mind on thegame. I ddidn't enjoy the demo at E3 but from tthe review I came to the conclusion that I went in with the wrong mind set... plus this will be my first yoshi island game

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.

This is why pre-ordering videogames is a bad idea.

I make Pixel Art on occasion, and sometimes sell them as Game Assets.

Also trusting reviews to make your gaming decisions is a bad idea

But most of the games I like are critically acclaimed or in the same ballpark.

try harder

I watched the final battle and...

You guys act like it's the first time they do this. It was basically the entire story of Yoshi's Island DS. Which I guess is chronologically the third game in the series now, so in a way it is the first time they do it...?

Yeah I don’t know either.

Oh look! A Morphloggery.

That is fine, I just don't think people should let reviews convince them not to buy things. If you are interested in a game that gets bad reviews you might still enjoy it.
I try not to let reviews stop me from buying games, I let reviews convince me to buy games I either don't think I want or am questioning.

That's hardly comparable. Of course, judging a purchase on one review is silly, but basing it on 2 or 3 from sources you know should give you a pretty good idea of how good the game is, and whether not it is for you. Pre-ordering a game means you're investing in their product when you have no idea how good it is. All you have to go on is their own marketing material.

Pre-ordering a game is't investing in it as pre-orders can be canceled. All pre-ordering does is let distributors know what stores to ship games to. I do agree it is bad to pre-order a game solely on hype but if you pre-order a game based on the information you have about the game then that isn't bad.

On Topic: So I got Yoshi's New Island today and played up to the first castle, not really that far into the game. It is defiantly a slower paced game than other platformers on the market. I am enjoying the slower pace and the exploration but I don't like the Hidden ? Clouds. I feel like it is a cheap way to make levels replayable and in fact if they weren't hidden, just placed in harder to reach areas, I might want to play it multiple times.

I bought it and played the first world and a few levels from the second. My first impression...it isn't that bad actually! Okay, it isn't edge of the seat or really essential! But it's a decent platform-game alright! Decent gameplay, decent music (though there isn't much variety), and decent graphics! I don't think it will come even close to Yoshi's island DS, but there are worse ways to kill some time!

I love this game. It's a lot prettier than it looks in screenshots and videos... it really looks good and it's fun.
The bad reviews are completely unfair.

In my case it would be investing in games. When I use to do pre-ordering from gamestop I pre-order a game & pay for it full right on the spot every time. I never cancelled my pre-order's because never saw no sense it.

I did stop pre-ordering games after a while mainly because it became tiring having to run out to the game store every time for a game now I download all my games unless left with no other choice but to buy cartridge.

Happy Gaming! (^_^)

Your not investing in the game because your money doesn't go into making the game, like Kickstarter. All you are doing is buying a game before it comes out and not being able to play it until it is released, which I am not against.

I've just completed it after 6 and a half hours. Literally the easiest game I've ever played in my life. I guess they were really aiming for the younger generation with this one. The final boss was utterly dire.

I'll give the game overall a 5/10, I was close to giving it a 6, but towards the end I got annoyed by how repetitive and uncreative the levels became.

I don't recommend anybody to buy it, unless you're loaded or you know you'll sell it on afterwards which is exactly what I'm planning to do. There's the odd enjoyable level which provides some platforming fun, but no, it's hard to recommend. Well, I'd say it's perfect for your littln's if you're struggling to think of a game to buy them.

The biggest problem with Yoshi's New Island is that this game was revealed a few months after Yarn Yoshi

Did you 100% the game? I probably spent over 30 minutes just trying to 100% 1-6 and still can't find everything lol. I feel a lot of the enjoyment of tge game comes from trying to 100% it... I do think the way the egg tokens work is broken. Makes it way too easy to unlock the secret levels

Nah I didn't 100% it, I just didn't enjoy the game enough to make the effort, plus I HATE the falling stars you have to get. They're annoyingly unpredictable to grab.

Yea I feel 100% is a big part of the game. If you just move through the story I bet ot will be pretty boring.I have put 3 hours into it making sure I 100% each level before moving on to the next and I am almost done with world 1 lol

I've played up to the start of World 2, and I honestly think it isn't too bad. It seems people are comparing it to the original on SNES a bit too much. Granted, it's easy and appropriate to compare the two, but I'd be willing to bet that if the one on SNES didn't exist the reviews would be a bit better.

Beep.
That is all.

Of course the reviews would then be better in that scenario, but that isn't the case. There is a 20 year old game that this game was based on, which is better. You can pick up the original used for a very low price. Why would one buy the new one at full retail price for an inferior version of the original game? It was lazy development, and its not worth supporting.

That doesn't help that Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island will be released on Wii U VC for at least $6 this April, which is obviously the remake of the SNES classic Yoshi's Island. Not only it's still a great game all around, but it's much cheaper to get it than purchasing Yoshi's New Island at full price.

A) It is still a fun game.
B) I don't have the money or time to hunt down a SNES or a copy of Yoshi's Island.
C) I like the fact it is portable.
D) I got Pokemon Y for free.

I do not understand that hate towards this game. It is a fun game, it just requires a certain mind set.
