Will get it when it goes on sale ;)


how would it ever go on sale? you know how stubborn nintendo is with the prices of their games. i usually buy nintendo games the week they release and i have never seen a sale on them before. is a sale for yoshis new island feasible at all?

Yes, exactly. So if I want it when it goes on sale I'll never have to buy it. This game looks too dissapointing to me to even try.


i am a die hard yoshi's island fan, and have been since it released (i was six years old). its been one of my favorite games of all time since. when yoshi's story for 64 came out, i made my mom go out and buy that shit immediately, and THAT game disappointed me. I was also in disbelief that nintendo made a game, with yoshi no less, that sucked as much as it did. it was actually then when i realized that nintendo is fallible and was actually able to make mistakes. 

and even with all of that, i played this game expecting a very 'meh' experience, and ended up finding so much more than that. so if you had a similar experience like i had with yoshi's story and thats why you feel like its too disappointing to even try and you want to save yourself from something like that ever happening again, im telling you that its ok and youre not going to have to endure that same pain again. this game certainly is not disappointing and redeems the series in my eyes.

That's not the problem for me. I've played the old Yoshi's Island but it really didn't feel so good to me. Don't get me wrong, I don't think it's a bad game, it just doesn't suit me. I really dislike the music from Yoshi's New Island as well as the art style. It's just personal preference though, I guess. Also, I keep spelling disappointing wrong. Urgh -.-

ok so we come from different backgrounds with yoshis island. but yeah, if you didnt particularly like the first one, then there really isnt much hope of liking this one either. theyre very much the same thing. i do think, however, if you play all the way through world six, you might find yourself really enjoying the game though. i had the same feeling about the music and art style too, and all of that pretty much vanished for me and i grew to like it.



Yeah, I will buy it eventually when I have some spare cash. This along with a host of other games.

I also refuse to believe this is a bad game, the original SNES game is one of the greatest games ever made, my favorite 2D platformer of all-time and if this game has just a hint of the original within itself, it should be at least decent.



I'm a huge fan of the original Yoshi's Island and bought this day one. Probably my worst day one purchase ever, metacritic score is totally deserved. It's just painfully mediocre, lacking of any own ideas, feels just like a chinese copy of the original...Which gives it a little of it's flavor, but without the magic.

you kidding? NSMB2, Star fox 643d, mario and luigi, paper mario just to name a few all on sale. Where you been? hell with Yoshi i expect the price to drop in the summer

i just have always bought nintendo games at full price and never checked to see what the prices went to later. i also work at a used video game store, so we never see new games. all our nintendo-made 3ds games are at least 30 dollars all the time and whenever i go to gamestop and check the nintendo section, the majority of all nintendo made games keep their price and i have never witnessed one of these 'sales'  before. 

Amazon...its your friend



I liked the DS game ( shocking I know!), so I might give this one a chance later on!

I have been playing Yoshis New Island the past few days myself, borrowed my brothers game, he bought it. It's definitely better than the ratings it has got. The graphics look horrible in still images but in motion it's beautiful. There's more than three songs too, at least 6-7 plus remixed versions. By remixed I mean very different. The main tune which is in many of the songs is good too, composed very nicely. Good use of 3D.

It's not all good though, the controls feel much heavier than the old ones for example. But overall it's a good game which deserves better scores in my opinion. It's also harder than I thought.

On world 4 so far.

world 4? wait until you get to 6, i really feel like it ties the entire experience together. that may sound dramatic, but i really felt like everything you have done in the game before that point has prepared you to take on that world. the game does a nice job challenging you in various ways throughout the game to prepare you for the onslaught that it world six and its secret level (i am of course speaking from the context of collecting everything in the levels).

also, i do recommend using the gyroscope. it makes the gameplay more, for lack of a better word, intense. i know people hate when motion gets involved with gaming, so if youre one of those, then youre more than likely not going to take to it. but if youre open minded with it, i think it could enhance the experience for you.


Wow, just turned on the gyroscope in options, it's perfect! You don't have to wait until the cursor gets back down when you're trying to hit an enemy which is moving. It has the perfect speed and sensitivity too.

 

I guess I'm somewhat open minded to motion controls then :) Didn't know there was such an option, thank you!!



Yep.

you don't even need a "sale" for it, Gamestop here sell Star Fox64 for €8.88 new... they have done for the past 6 months now.

youre welcome :P

im glad you like it. i think it makes the game feel way more immersive, and you can pull off certain things way quicker. like jumping while aiming while shooting. youre going to need that to get some of the red coins in levels like terrain train (world 2 secret level).
