Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Initially, kid-testers loved the novelty of the two games. They also prized the frenetic fun of playing the wireless two-person mode (which requires two Nintendo DS systems but only one copy of the game). While there are five modes in which to earn points, there are only two basic games. The novelty wears off relatively quickly because neither game has a compelling story nor progressive levels.

The Bottom Line: Yoshi Touch & Go is rich in originality but light on content. If you own two Nintendo DS systems, the two-player game is perfect for carpools or car trips -- at least for a while.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
