Yoshi's Woolly World is game that doesn't pretend to be anything that it isn't. It capitalizes on cute and charming and creates a worthwhile game with plenty to look forward to. Its fatal flaw is only that its appeal runs short for gamers who look for the complexity and skill challenge Nintendo's other platformers offer.
Extensive in-game content and its new ideas attached to series' staples give us an accomplished beginning to a new name. The game does turn out to be a somewhat light on top, commanding little attention at all in its first month, but with eventually engaging gameplay and overall appeal, it will undoubtedly hook players with its charm in due time. Marvelous hasn't lost their spark for creating a farming game worth picking up, and for that, we're grateful.
