McShea definitely needs to do all Nintendo reviews.

5 is a good score.

In the Mcshea scale.

It looked pretty awful, so the score seems to be about right.

FYI, I want this to be as clear as water. I'm not defending this game. I'm not belittling McShea for disliking it. In fact, I wasn't looking forward to it at all, but seriously, check the description for the review on YouTube. It's funny how they imply that McShea had expectations, but that article he wrote about the game weeks ago tell me that is bulls***. They were either lowered overtime or he hardly had any at all.

was going to reply saying Yoshi's Island can't have Mc 7.5ea'd, but I see it was a Mc 5ea'd.

Not surprised at all. It always looked like a garbage phone game.

From the footage released did ANYONE have any high expectations? Boring game turned out boring.

Maybe not, but my main point is that GS' YouTube channel is misleading by the video description of the review by saying something that is easily contradicted on their own site.

Tom is a Vita fanboy and has been pretty anti Nintendo for some time. This is all based off of the Gamespot Gameplay podcast. He gushed over the Vita time and time again. But the strange thing is that it was over multiplats like Spelunky and Hotline Miami. I don't think he cared for any of the exclusives but whatever.

This. I never saw the magic that I saw with previous Yoshi titles.

I just hope Yarn Yoshi, the game we haven't seen for a looooong time, turns out allright.

Why can't the 3DS get a game in the league of Spelunky or Hotline Miami? We're stuck with inferior platformers

Nothing. But those games were selling points according to Tom. He would go on long rants about how he loves the Vita and then lists multiplats as the reason. Anyone with any computer could run those games. And don't get me wrong they are good games on the Vita. I own them both on Vita myself.

Considering the metacritic score is 62, I'm not so sure we got "McShea'd" again

It didn't get "McShea'd".

The game looked incredibly lame in the previews. This 5 comes as no surprise.

Reviews overall are pretty mixed for this game. Will probably get the game regardless, though will not be expecting greatness from it.

In the Mcshea scale.

he actually uses the 1-10 scale instead of 7-10 scale.

(GS Review + IGN Review) / 2 = Real Score

I find this formula is foolproof. This game is a 6.45.

Wasn't there supposed to be a Yoshi game for the WiiU as well, or was this it?

Why the hell would nintendo Murder the followup to one of their best games, everything about this game looks like garbage.

Honestly they are selling points. If you want something extremely portable (smaller than a laptop) to play some great indie games on then Vita is the machine for you. It almost made me think about buying one, but like you said they are after all multiplats and I do have a laptop that can run them. The extra expenses to get a Vita running just isn't worth it to me.

@speedfreak48t5p: not even close. Link Between Worlds is superb but it's not anywhere near the level of excellence that Hotline Miami or Spelunky exude. Those two games not only are suited for the Vita better than any other platform but actually have replay value unlike Link Between Worlds.
