    Yoshi's Island is Super Mario World 2 . Both games have two things in common : they have Yoshi and the magical X-factor . For the rest, Yoshi's Island leaves many concepts from previous Mario's behind...

    A fun sequel to Super Mario World, but that baby needs to shut up!

    Everybody has the perfect game made just for them. This one is mine.

    A perfect ten is not something one should give out lightly to a video game. Most video games are not perfect, and a fault can be found in every one. However, this is the one game that I’ve played th...

    Not only the Mario series at its best, but platforming at its best.

    Rated on September 19, 2006 by unclejohn0525

    Yes, thats right I said platforming at its best. You might be thinking, ''WHAAA?!?'', but I mean it. Recently I got a SNES on Ebay, with this game in mind as well as a few others. The SNES came with t...
