Yeah, I love the art style of Yoshi's Island. The funny thing about that is Miyamoto originally started making Yoshi's Island in the same graphical style as Super Mario World, but based off the success of the original DKC the higher-ups at Nintendo wanted him to use the same kind of technology as DKC to create more realistic graphics for it. He didn't want to do that, so he went in the opposite direction, making the game look more cartoony. Choice for the better in my opinion, the Mario universe wouldn't look right if it were made to look realistic.

On a much more on-topic note, I will definitely download this game, but probably not until I finish the first one.

It does not have the suspension feature; I don't think it's possible to do that with the N64 emulation setup as it is. I wish it did, because the original game gave no way to save mid-campaign, the save capabilities were limited to saving high scores and the like. I don't care, though, this game is one of my all time favorites and I was extremely happy to see it as one of today's releases. The N64 may not have a lot of games on the VC, but I can't complain too much, as the 4 games up on the service right now are the 4 that I'd pick if I were in charge of selecting the games.
