With the recent release of Yoshi’s Island on the Wii U’s Virtual Console, I thought I’d take the time to actually play the game, albeit on my 3DS instead. I was born in1990 and my exposure to the Super Nintendo was limited. I remember playing classics like Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country and Super Mario Kart, but my tiny toddler brain couldn’t really comprehend what was going on. Consoles like the PlayStation and Nintendo 64 are the start of my most significant gaming memories. I have a lot 16-bit experiences to catch up on, and playing Yoshi’s Island was an attempt to cross one of these off my list. Despite all the praise for the title, I initially found myself underwhelmed.
Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest! Depending on who you are, this is either a classic, or a disappointment. Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest was Square’s first attempt to open up the RPG genre to the western market. Unfortunately, the title wasn’t exactly well received across all regions. But looking at the title at face value, it’s actually not that bad.
