Where do I begin with this one…. Well Super Mario World 2 – Yoshi’s Island was the sequel to the original and first Super Nintendo Game, Super Mario World. In fairness Super Mario World was such a hit and a world leader in the video game industry for this time and any sequel would have been hard to beat the original and most game producers may have steered away from doing a sequel for fear that it would be a flop.
Luckily this was not the case! Super Mario World 2 – Yoshi’s Island is one of the best Super Nintendo games of all time and in my opinion one of the best video games ever released for any console.
You can still pick this game up today, it is extremely rare and the game cartridge on its own can fetch up to £15 on the net, fully boxed you can expect to pay anything up to £25 depending on condition.
The story of the game is that you play as Yoshi, and you have to reunite baby Mario with baby Luigi. Don’t let the lame story line confuse you, this game is excellent.
The colorful backgrounds, massive levels, hidden secrets and amazing music make this game a real legend. The graphics are crystal clear and up there with the best Snes games. Similar to other Mario games the worlds are set out with 8 levels in each world and with สล็อต each world containing two castles (the last one containing an end of level boss to defeat)
Unlike other Mario games the main ‘baddy’ is Kamek.. an evil magician who has in fact kidnapped Luigi. This is a nice touch away from it being Bowser…. However, Bowser does feature in the game and you will face him at some point in your travels… needless to say it wont be easy to get past him!
Even though I have owned this game for nearly 12 years I still play it and have just as much fun as I did when I first brought it.
In order to write a review I have to be critical… but I can only think of one thing which goes against this game and that is the annoying noise that happens each time that you are struck by an enemy. Being struck will make baby Mario fall off of your Yoshi character. Baby Mario will then cry like……. well, like a baby!! He will float around in a bubble crying until your character can make contact with him or pop the bubble with a Yoshi egg.
As previously mentioned the music is amazing, the under ground level is my favourite, it has such crystal clear music which suits the surroundings of the levels and the environments within the level itself.
