What Gamespot Users have to say about Yoshi

  • User Rating 9

    An under-appreciated and under-the-radar puzzler classic.

    Rated on September 17, 2008 by leapfrog91

    To start off, as of May 7, 2004, there has been only one other rating for this game: 2.4. I could not even begin to address how this rating was achieved. While simple, this is a fantastic puzzle game ...

    A bad Tetris clone

    Rated on May 17, 2008 by tazisthelord

    This is another puzzle game that yet again, clones Tetris. You play as Mario or Luigi who are trying to stack enemies from the previous Mario games onto plates to make them disappear. You can also sta...

    The concept behind Yoshi is solid but the execution is not quite there.

    Rated on December 06, 2012 by logicalfrank

    Yoshi is a falling-blocks puzzle game developed by the creators of Pokemon for the original NES. It works on some levels but certain design decisions seriously limit re-playability. Gameplay is cen...

    Unless you really liked the original Yoshi game, don't waste your time.

    Rated on September 05, 2007 by BadSushi

    I have had two different types of Yoshi games over the years. The original and a remake that someone released for the TI-86 Graphing Calculator, they are incredibly close to the same except with some ...

    Yoshi is what could have been called Mario Tetris.

    Rated on November 08, 2005 by DarkBelthasar

    This is a very simplistic game, comparable to Tetris in gameplay. There are dropping top and bottom eggshells and dropping creatures that can land on four different spots. The player's job as Yos...

    An Amazing and Highly Addicting Action Puzzle Title...

    Rated on April 02, 2006 by KillAllPopStars

    Yoshi is another falling piece puzzle game in the vein of Tetris and Dr. Mario. While it fails to live up to the ridiculously high standards of Tetris that make it such a timeless classic, it surpasse...

    Rated on April 03, 2006 by fenix1022

    I own this and actually had some fun with it, but let be honest and say that this was neither a complicated game or that compelling. Tetris Attack took the Yoshi profile and made something with it....

    A tetris-like Yoshi and Mario game.

    Rated on June 27, 2006 by LINKTHECHAMPION

    This game is pretty good, especially since it was made in 1991. The graphics are awesome (I played it on my SP and it has color) but the sound is just a repeated track. You can choose from one of 3 re...
