I still remember when I dished over $49.99 for "Yoshi's Story" on N64 very soon after it came out. Having had my N64 for two years and having accumulated many games, "Yoshi's Story" was one I looked forward to with great anticipation, especially after finding out it had a unique graphics style.
Unfortunately, although it's sort of fun, it's also very disappointing. The game is way too short and way too easy, as if it was made in a hurry and targeted at small children. Unlike "Paper Mario" (2001), which used the same 2-D visual processor, "Yoshi's Story" isn't puzzling or very hard at all. It's also not very complex. And unlike "Paper Mario," it isn't very interactive. It's a basic go-straight-through-the-level, versus a fully-immersible "wide range" world such as "Paper" and "Grand Theft Auto III," in which you can run around doing whatever...whenever...
All in all, not a bad game, but not one in my collection that I play very much. Buy "Paper Mario" instead.
