"New" Island, but in the style of 'Story', that somehow looks worse than the N64 game which already looked kind of bad?

I don't hate Yoshi's Island as much as Jeff, but I agree it's not a good game. The level design is universally a bit of a dud and the stars mechanic plus losing the baby mechanic make it an extremely frustrating and proactively irritating experience. I've attempted several times to play it again and always give up having had close to no fun at all. And Yoshi has some weird inertia about him. Only good thing was the graphical effects thanks to the FX2 chip. Some impressive sprite manipulation that didn't have the limitations of Mode 7 (being relegated to a background layer, hence all the bosses in SMW being on black backgrounds as they were the background).

Christ, that is a really, really lazy name. It's worse than just calling it Yoshi's Island 2.

@scarlet_rogue: It's a 3ds game blown up to video size. Of course it 'looks' terrible.

Feels to me like they're putting about the same amount of imagination into the names as they are putting into the games.

If a game named "Jeff Gerstmann's 2014 Game of the Year" ever does get made (and I'm kinda thinkin it should) I can't see it being a Nintendo exclusive.

...also, it should include a Luigi style character named Jeff Gertsmann.

Graphically this game just looks ugly.

SHHHHHHH. Quiet! (You're right.)

Maybe this is one of those situations where A Link Between Worlds looked bad in trailers but great on your 3DS? Or maybe its just ugly..

Good pick Jeff.

Is it me or does this game look... rough?
I think 3DS games can look clearer than this, also Yoshi just put his tongue on that dudes junk.

Still not entirely sure Nintendo has what it takes to make a proper sequel to Yoshi's Island anymore (as they've tried that multiple times already with questionable success), and I'm not a fan of them leaning more towards Yoshi's Story rather than Yoshi's Island in aesthetics and sound.

I'm still curious as to how this will turn out though. I want to believe.

3DS games are rarely done justice in videos it seems. They always look kinda patchwork and weird to me in video form, and then I seem them in person on the 3DS screens and it's dramatically better. I'm guessing this is more of that. (Or at least, I'm hoping, because I agree, looks a little odd here)

I never played the original YI, but I played the DS version. I really liked the art style. After watching this, I have a question: what the heck happened?

Originally when Nintendo was developing Yoshi's Island they wanted to give it the Donkey Kong treatment by making it have pseudo-3D sprites (The original game's opening looks more like this new YI). But Miyamoto disagreed and wanted to rework the art assets to make the sprites have a hand-drawn look. For this tile, I think Nintendo is experimenting with the DKC sprite style to see how it would of looked for the original.

Edit: Here's the source about the decision.

Nintendo, please stop putting "new" in your titles. Its going to confuse the children in 10 years.

this does look weirdly ugly. I loved Yoshis Island on the SNES tho. Does it look better in person with the 3d? has anyone seen it? That sometimes happens with 3ds Stuff. Like LTTP2 looked bad in videos but looks good in person.

Eh, this doesn't look great but I also think that A Link Between Worlds doesn't look very good so I don't know, this just might be a case where a lot of these 3DS games don't look very good unless you see them on the screen.
