    PERFECT

    Rated on December 29, 2005 by Wolf_Hunter194

    If you were to look at my other ratings, you would see that I don't give out high scores very often. Yoshi's Island, I'm glad to report, has made it to my PERFECT LIST. I have sold all my Super Ninten...

    3 weeks of my life were solely devoted to work, school, & this. It is incredible and worthy of the Mario franchise

    The best game to come out for the Super Nintendo, at least to my vast knowledge. This is matched only by the classis games for the NES and SNES as far as fun & replay value. It is to Mario World 1...

    Yoshi's Island is a beautiful game! Taking full advantage of the SNES, this game defined what an platformer should be! Gameplay is just amazing, becuase now Yoshi can transform in to these vehicles,...

    The last 2-D side-scrolling Mario game goes out with a bang.<br /> <br />

    SImply and amazing and wonderful game. Any platformer fan should play it.

    Simply put, this game is amazing. With the exception of baby mario crying ( giving incentive not to get hit) , their is practically nothing wrong with the game. The gameplay is awesome, and not too ha...

    The sequel to Super Mario World and a prequel to all Mario games. How is it? I'll tell you.

    A great game in the Mario franchise, but the previous Mario World beats it.

    Yoshi's Island may seem like a downgrade in some ways to Super Mario World, but it is a unique, addictive game.

    Rated on May 24, 2008 by malachi_27

    It is not a sequel to Super Mario World (even though it claims to be), it is more of a prequel. You can't explore an open world map, you can't get items (feather, fire flowers, mushrooms), but Yoshi'...

    Just too wonderful to miss, shame on anyone that's passed by the best 2d platformer ever made.

    Rated on December 03, 2004 by maximummaker

    Just before everything was set in stone, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island slipped under the door just in time to present the most memorable game in the SNES library. The graphics of this game can n...
