    Easy doesn’t mean a lack of fun, and if Yoshi’s Crafted World is anything, it’s fun. Good Feel has very nearly perfected its quirky practice of hyper-stylized visuals fused with quality gameplay. As ever, the pure joy of hurling eggs at encroaching Shy Guys and Piranha Plants remains one of the biggest draws in all of video games. The new, multilayered stages composed from bric a brac are charming to the max. There’s also a bevy of unlockable goodies, including a multitude of cute costumes to dress Yoshi in, and that will keep players busy returning to Crafted World’s numerous stages for a good, long time.

    Yoshi’s Crafted World is a real joy to play. While it’s monotonous during the flip side levels, its masterful platform design makes up for it in droves.

    Yoshi's Crafted World is a really fun title with a great design, perfect for fans of platform games and of course Yoshi fans. This makes us recommend the game to all players looking for an entertaining adventure starring their favorite dinosaur.

    Yoshi’s Crafted World was a delight to play through, especially thanks to the stunning paper craft scenery. In terms of presentation, this as good as anything Nintendo has produced, which is an incredible accomplishment. Does Crafted World rank as one of the Switch’s best platformers? Not quite. This is a simple collectathon at heart that never really attempts to strive to be anything more. Children and those craving a cutesy cathartic adventure will love this new Yoshi entry, but those looking for a challenge are better off looking elsewhere.

    Yoshi's Crafted World is another successful main game Switch debut for one of Nintendo's favourite characters and is wonderfully accessible for every kind of gamer. The games adorable art style is a joy to behold, and it's always fun to play with a friend in co-op. It may not be perfect, but it's a lovely little adventure that should be experienced by all fans.

    The soundtrack of Yoshi's Crafted World is abysmal. [Issue #39 – May/June 2019, p. 68]

    It’s charming, it’s sweet, it’s peddling a message of kinship and harmony… but it does it all so dryly...Sorry, Yoshi – you’re a good boy, but you’ve got to learn some new tricks.

It shows a perfect combination of precious graphics and new interesting game mechanics that provide freshness and multiple varied situations. The soundtrack may be scarce at first, but it perfectly fuses with the gameplay so that you are not aware of the repetition of some themes. This game is the perfect opportunity to experience a relaxed trip through the crafted worlds with one of our favourite characters. Expand

    I didn't know what I expected of Yoshi's Crafted World when I entered, but I do know that I'm exiting way more satisfied than I ever thought II didn't know what I expected of Yoshi's Crafted World when I entered, but I do know that I'm exiting way more satisfied than I ever thought I would.

    The visuals are amazing, level design and mechanics are great too, and the game is just bursting with creativity and care. I found myself becoming addicted to collecting all the Smiley Flowers, and almost never found that the game was trying to stretch my play time, due to the levels having great replay value thanks to the Flip-Side mechanic. Music and bosses (expect for the final one) are lacking in my opinion.

    My biggest fear entering the game is that it would be too easy, however, the game filled almost this niche role in my life. The difficulty is not that challenging, but it became this game I would play whenever I needed to relax after a long day, and discovering every little collectible was a feel-good moment.

    For what it is, Yoshi's Crafted World is a great game and I recommend it to any Nintendo Switch owner.

    It's always a great day when there's a new Nintendo Exclusive to play. It's even better when that Nintendo exclusive is a Yoshi game. In manyIt's always a great day when there's a new Nintendo Exclusive to play. It's even better when that Nintendo exclusive is a Yoshi game. In many ways though crafted world falls short of the usual nintendo glory. The game is not terrible by any means, but Yoshi games in the future have a lot to learn.

    Yoshi is as love-able as ever in crafted world, but his charm only goes so far. That being said, everything in crafted world is love-able; and even though I love the artstyle in crafted world, I do hope yoshi is done with cardboard and yarn for now.

    What hurts crafted world more than anything is the games scope. Its very apparent that the developers were trying to make a cute yoshi game and nothing else. I'm a believer in developers aiming high on games and I just want more from yoshi. The yarn and cardboard aesthetics are cute but thats about it.

    The game has virtually no challenge. Sure you won't beat this game without dying, but the game is in no way trying to be punishing. I don't want dark souls yoshi, but these levels— while fun and creative— lack in challenge.

    Yoshi is an awesome character, one of many nintendo fans favorites. We can only hope the developers aim higher with the next yoshi game instead of giving more of the same.

Due to them changing the mechanic so that you can't walk through each other and are constantly jumping onto each other, the game is unplayable in co op. Thus a 0, maybe they will patch it so it works. Expand
