He either hates that fact that he loves it or loves the fact that he hates it, I'm still not clear on which...

This site's issues with Nintendo border on sociopathic.  


5-7 year olds with DS's are going to love this and just maybe in this case you could acknowledge how cool it is that a major release that isn't some throwaway tablet app "game" promoting a TV show was actually designed partially (mostly?) with them in mind.  Also no mention of or even casual nod to the game's art style/direction seems odd, if not purposeful.

Yeah, even though this game isn't "new" per se, the mechanics are so different from any other platformer that people still might find it fresh..??

But even then, Yoshi looks like he moves really slow, and overall it doesn't look fun to play. Hopefully I'm wrong and the game had some redeeming values that I didn't catch from the trailers. Guess I'll just wait for the reviews.

There's pretty much no way this game will be better than the original, but I'll probably buy it anyway just because I love Yoshi's Island. If the formula is similar to the original, I'm sure it'll be good.

The game looks super fun, I'll get it along with Kirby triple deluxe, and preview-er, go play some generic masterpieces like Thief, knack or Castlevania LoS 2 or some movie wannabe game full of cutscenes and QTEs, looks like the kind of games you like.

You don't get to talk about Nintendo's lack of innovation while CoD and BF are getting 8's in your reviews okay?? Cuz if it's okay for evil money-hungry corporations to do it, it's okay for Nintendo to do it with after more than a decade has past since the original
