Yoshi's Island DS Infuriates Me.

It's just so bad. Here's why:

-the controls are not good. They feel stiff and unresponsive.

-the music is bland.

-it's an insult to the real Yoshi's Island, because it uses graphics, and gameplay elements from it, but butchers them.

-the baby switching mechanic is boring, and doesn't make the game more fun at all.

-the Bowser sprite is horribly drawn, like some little kid traced a picture of Bowser.

It's just so bad. I try to block it out of my mind, but whenever someone mentions it I get mad. I can't exactly pinpoint what makes it so unbearable to me, but it had to do with how Artoon took the original classic, one of my favourite games, and scribbled all over it, made it mind-numbingly boring, tedious, and frustrating, and they got away with it. :(

Anyone agree? If you don't, at least I'll know you're crazy.

I played it a long time ago, and honestly don't remember much about it. I do remember it was a lot of fun to play, despite the fact that it's a 2D Platformer, which I generally find boring.

I couldn't stand it, it's an insult to one of the best games of all time.

Wow. You may want to try some other platformers if you found that abomination fun...

YES! I'm glad someone else sees what I mean.

Didn't get to finish it though.

There are no rattlesnakes in Texas. It's just a myth.

Nope. Sorry. I took one look at it and knew it was going to be the same deal as YIDS. I may look at it once it's out, but it's made by the same team that made Yoshi's Island DS.
