Probably the most colorful game on the SNES library, if we could have made any business decision in the 90s for Nintendo, it would have been to drop Super Mario World 2 from the title of this game. Yoshi’s Island is a sublime experience, but putting SMW2 on it paints the wrong picture for it. It plays nothing like its predecessor. Instead you’re Yoshi and protecting a baby Mario from impending peril. It was a swell concept, but it should have been its own standalone title. But we still love it. It’s one of the best.
