A good game, but feels like exactly what it is, a remake of a SNES game.

Yoshi's Island (DS)
Advantages: Some form of a story line, thats always a plus, innovative game controls, some new enemies. FIANLLY.
Disadvantages: The throwing eggs part of the game can get annoying. The game just didn't feel all that brilliant.
When i first played this game it reminded me of an old SNES game, what i believe was the SNES's version of Yoshi's Island.
This game really does feel like the old SNES mario platformers that they made so many of back then.
Unfortunately nowadays they've kind of lost their luster, at the time they were great games, now they've been copied, cloned, remade and practically everything in between.
This is a good game, the controls work well, there are a few new things, and the way they game worked was definitely wasn't what i was expecting, but really it does just feel like a remake of an old SNES game, not that that's necessarily a bad thing, especially if you dont own a SNES.
Some of the gameplay did get on my wick, such as the throwing eggs at enemies and various objects to progress through the game, it wasn't always easy to hit what you needed to hit, which did frustrate me sometimes, but usually you can hit it first time.
I'm not sure how much this game costs nowadays, but i would probably be happy paying a tenner for it, i would be reluctant to go any higher. Carboot sales are good places to find DS and GBA games nowadays.
Summary: If you find it on a carboot sale for a few quid like you can for many DS games now, buy it.
