Yoshi is a thing that when it's done correctly is really good. This game has elements that are good but it lacks the finesse of the SNES game that this is a sequel to. This game introduces some new elements to the platforming in the other one but they never really get anywhere with it.
The only reason I won't recommend this game is because the ludicrous amounts of difficulty towards the end. Particularly anything involving the little pink bouncy ball things that are just really annoying and don't serve any useful purpose. Now, don't get me wrong I like a challenge in platforming but this gets so far out of hand that it stops being fun.
