Some minor dissapointment, but a great game nonetheless.
This game takes an old suger-frosted classic, dips chocolate on it - and tastes very sweet indeed.
The controls are superb, the level design is excellent. There are a ton of secrets to discover in each level - and just when it starts to become repetitive, something new is encountered.
The game shines when it comes to diversity, either yoshi changes to a vehicle, or a new baby becomes available for use.
Although it is a great game, it can become very tedious to backtrack and get the right baby for the job. The story itself is just a little too happy (as are the graphics), and the advantages of the DS are not really used. It could easily have been a gameboy advance title - but it is a great game nonetheless.
And of course, it is always fun to kick bowsers behind.
