No one's playing this? I got it today and am having a good time!

This game is wonderfully designed, just lovely!

I’m playing!

I think it’s a fun game, without question, but I can’t help but feel a little disappointed inasmuch that it falls short next to Wooly World. Soundtrack isn’t nearly as good since the composer is different, the artstyle isn’t quite as appealing to me as the wool, The Amiibo costumes are pretty lame compared to the awesome designs of Yoshi in WW, not to mention only a select few Amiibo unlock costumes in this game versus 50+ Amiibo in WW, and I don’t like the new aiming mechanic being free-aim. I much preferred the old aiming mechanic which took skill to lineup the shot and time it right.

It just feels like a step down overall.

That said, it’s still a fun game in its own right and I am having a great time playing

@JaxonH I haven't played Wooly World, so cannot compare, but I think this is a fun if not very challenging platformer. It's no Yoshi's Island, but that one's hard to top (though nostalgia surely plays an important part). But it's more fun than another very easy Switch game, Kirby Star Allies.

Yeah, just popped it in awhile ago and it's a fun time. It's not a challenging game by any means (then again I've just played the first few levels), but the level theming is so charming & varied it's a joy to poke around in. I also really like the fact that it makes use of being 3D, in that you can go into the background & foreground (I really enjoyed that in Planet Robobot on 3DS, and was disappointed that Star Allies took a step back in that regard. Heck, even Tropical Freeze toned down segments like that in comparison to Returns).

I’m about to play. Got a sickness coming on, so got home from the office and crashed on the bed a couple hours. I’ll be trying out handheld first, cuz Live PD is finally back.

Rant: Why, oh why hasn't Nintendo reissued the Poochie amiibo?

The Wii U is still the world's best console. Buy one today!

I just got the first Sun Gem and while its a pretty relaxing game initially, from island 3 onwards the game is getting really challenging. I cannot find 4/20 red coins in the fourth level. There has to be a new unique puzzle or some fantastically hidden secret somehwere!
I'm playing on normal mode and try to get 100%. I also played more than just the first couple of stages. I think the difficulty of this game is balanced and not too easy. (Some stages seem exceptionally challenging though, we will see).

@JaxonH I actually like Star Allies, it's a good game, but it could have been great with some more effort. Stunning presentation though, just like Crafted World.

@SKTTR Yeah, the challenge lies in collecting all the hidden stuff. If your only goal is to go from point A to B it's fairly easy (I'm also playing in normal mode), but to 100% it will be tougher. Just like Kirby's Epic Yarn (which I recently got on 3DS).

Beat the first boss this morning. In general it's a pretty laid back game, but nabbing all the collectables will definitely take some time if you're into that, especially with the reverse sides & scavenger hunts.

I like how the path opens up after the first boss, letting you tackle the next three gems in any order you want. Not sure if that's a spoiler per se, but I wanted to be safe.

I beat the first few levels, been fun so far though I can see the requests getting obnoxious over time.

I absolutely adore this game.

You can take extra hits depending on the rarity of the costume.
Just finished Mine Cart Cave which is my fav level so far. Game is fantastic.

I am loving this game. The free aim is SOOO much better than the traditional cursor to the point where I'm not sure I can go back to the older games again. And the foreground/background elements really add to the level design. 100%ing the levels is also fairly challenging, some of the collectibles are very well hidden. My only really gripes with the game is that it feels a bit short and they could've done more with the flip side levels than just finding Poochy Pups.

I've collected 200 flowers now (not even halfway through I think), and this is just like Woolly World (with some 3D intersections). It even has a throwback wool world. Levels now feel even more like miniature worlds that have been scanned into the game 1:1. I'm not sure about the gimmick levels (Yoshi Robot, Plane flying, etc.), they're just fun little distractions, like bonus stages, but the majority, the platforming, is great.

In 2P co-op you can beat levels with a friend, you even get some team moves. Generally you really have to talk to each other to coordinate the next steps, otherwise you quickly get chaos into the game and be more of a hindrance than help to each other.

Minor things I think could be better: The story. It's a bit on the bland side, if not to say kiddy. The dialogue/screentext isn't as funny as older games in the series, but whenever Kamek's magic is shown it's a really hypnotic and cool special effect, so at least there's always that to look forward to.
The soundtrack, while good, seems pretty limited, only 20 tracks in the soundtest? That's really not much compared to other games in the series. At least they don't seem to repeat as much as you'd think.

So, yeah, Yoshi has not turned into a weird point&click puzzler, like some of us assumed after watching the first trailer.
From what I played this is the second best original Switch platformer, after Super Mario Odyssey.
The game looks great, plays great, and it is really fun to explore all stages 100%.

PS. Nowadays I expect every game to receive a day one patch. Yoshi's Crafted World doesn't have one though, and it feels so polished that it might never need one. (Well, until someone finds the inevitable gamebreaking glitch).
