The lack of challenge and the backtracking requirements to get to 100% might turn some people off. The fantastic visuals and attention to detail, combined with skillful, clever level building, and an unending barrage of new content and ideas make this not only the best Yoshi game in a long time, but also a masterpiece of design on par with the best the Switch has to offer. [Note: A copy of Yoshi's Crafted World was provided by Nintendo of America for the purpose of this review.]

It’s delightfully presented, though, and makes for another very solid entry in Nintendo’s ever-growing pantheon of material-based platformers – it takes extreme discipline to not overuse that word ‘charm’ while discussing it. So, if you’re looking to share a light-hearted platformer with the family, or simply relax in a big chair with a cup of something warm and a comfy pair of socks, be sure to have a spare pair ready – Yoshi's Crafted World will charm the ones you’re wearing right off.

The visuals in Yoshi's Crafted World speak for themselves. Every corner you turn presents something new to wonder at. The game's a bit on the easy side, but that's not necessarily a bad thing if you accept Yoshi titles are more about exploration and collecting than serious platforming. It's a great little "spring game" that should fill out your Switch library nicely.

Yoshi’s Crafted World brings together everything that makes the series so amazing to begin with, and expands on it exponentially with new mechanics and design decisions. It’s not perfect, but it’s a magical adventure in creativity from beginning to end and a textbook example of Nintendo’s dedication to pure fun.

Dating back to the original Yoshi’s Island, the Yoshi series has almost always been known for its unique art designs and Yoshi’s Crafted World once again does this by making a natural transition from yarn to other arts and crafts. Featuring the laid back atmosphere the series is typically known for mixed with enjoyable level design, Yoshi’s Crafted World is yet another delightful entry in the series that is great for families and solo players alike.
Tom Marks — Mar 27, 2019
Yoshi’s Crafted World is an engaging and charming platformer that is absolutely worth playing, but it misses a clear opportunity to be more than that by not taking full advantage of its most clever ideas. It has enough creative collectibles to make completionists want to hunt down every last one, but I’m disappointed Crafted World didn’t challenge me more in the way its last few levels proved it could have. Of course, I still thoroughly enjoyed every adorable hour I spent with it.
Alex Santa Maria — Apr 12, 2019
Yoshi's Crafted World has a style that erupts off the screen, but it leans too far into simplistic gameplay. That's great for kids, but it's not the all-ages fun that Nintendo is known for.
Brian Shea — Mar 27, 2019
After a fun adventure through a world made of wool, Yoshi's transition to arts and crafts is a delight. With satisfying exploration, fun platforming, and a charming art style, Yoshi's Crafted World gives the Switch yet another strong platformer.
Riley Constantine — Apr 01, 2019
Yoshi’s Crafted World is still a pleasant surprise. I was just expecting a solid little platformer, but I was floored by Yoshi’s Crafted World’s sophisticated imagery, abundant heart, and charmingly fun level design. Whether playing solo or cooperatively, I’m looking forward to exploring more of Yoshi’s Crafted World and diving head first into that colorful trip.
Dave Aubrey — Mar 27, 2019
Yoshi's Crafted World is a game utterly dripping with charm, but not that much challenge. It definitely can keep experienced and younger gamers occupied for hours, but this isn't a Switch essential. If you've got a soft spot for the green dino, then this might be worth your while. A great game for kids and younger gamers, but if you're looking for a challenging 2D adventure, this ain't it, chief.
Michael Ruiz — Apr 12, 2019
Combining its playful (yet awful) music, cute art direction, and easy gameplay, Yoshi’s Crafted World is a relaxing experience that was quite refreshing. It was nice to just pick up the controller and feel like a winner. Sometimes you need that palette cleanser of a video game to come along and Yoshi’s Crafted World was just that for me.
Jordan Oloman — Mar 27, 2019
The difficulty in recommending this game is that it’s an absolutely solid Nintendo platformer, but it doesn’t really do anything ambitious or use its conceit to great effect. I consistently wanted to soldier on to see what the next gorgeous world would entail, but when all was said and done, the experience felt slightly hollow, even if I’d had my eyes bleached by Yoshi’s cute capers.
Chris Carter — Mar 27, 2019
Most of my journey through the wonderful cardboard universe of Yoshi's Crafted World, littered with myriad ridiculous noises from Yoshi, was spent with a smile on my face. It's not the type of project that's going to set the world on fire like Tropical Freeze, but it still has more heart than most studios could ever hope to give in their lifetime.

Neal Ronaghan — Mar 27, 2019
Yoshi’s Crafted World is a stable, enjoyable adventure that brings enough of a twist to the expected Yoshi adventure to make it stand apart in a way no Yoshi platformer has done in years. It has a few blemishes along the way, but just break out the duct tape and stick that cardboard back up so you can romp your way through this delightful easy-going platformer.
James Paley — Mar 27, 2019
Every level is begging for multiple play-throughs. Every chunk of cardboard and glitter feels lovingly placed and perfectly rendered. Although what you find won’t shock you, it will wrap you up in childish delight and fuzzy satisfaction. Yoshi’s Crafted World is an art class plate heaped high with sugary delights that I can easily recommend.
Kevin Tucker — Mar 27, 2019
Google defines cardboard as "lacking depth and realism; artificial," and that definition certainly feels true-to-form here. Yoshi's Crafted World has all of the components of a classic platformer game, but the entire experience just feels shallow. There's no doubt that children will have fun with it, and longtime Nintendo fans will jump on the chance for another strong dose of nostalgia, but there's not much to satisfy modern-era gamers otherwise.
Darren Palma — Mar 27, 2019
Not only have they created a Yoshi game that convincingly pulls the series out from under the ever-widening shadow of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island, but they have also managed to prop it securely on its own aspirational eye-candy pedestal as a result. This Nintendo Switch exclusive is a stunning visual brainstorm of imagination, color, and creativity. With so much to see and do long after the credits roll, you’d be hard pressed to find anything quite as ingeniously charming or damn right adorable.
Alec Sandar — Apr 11, 2019
Every Yoshi’s Crafted World review found on the web is overly positive and the game is living up to its hype. While it may not be the most challenging platformer by Nintendo, it is surely one of the cutest. The Switch version fits in the platform’s capability to deliver enhanced visuals nicely and it feels like the new age of Gameboy for sure.

Shaan Joshi — Mar 28, 2019
Even though it’s simplicity and gentle difficulty curve might turn off those looking for a meatier challenge, Yoshi’s Crafted World is far from underwhelming. Good-Feel isn’t afraid to introduce unique mechanics in one stage, only to abandon them for an entirely new gimmick in the next. which is enough to keep players young and old from fizzling out before the journey is over.
Heath Shusterman-Zimmerman — Apr 05, 2019
As a huge fan of the Yoshi series, in general, I can honestly say Yoshi’s Crafted World did not disappoint me. I really found the details behind the levels to be stunning and highly enjoyable – I can’t stress enough how creative it looks. Despite a few minor complaints here and there, fans of Yoshi games and platformers in general should give Yoshi’s Crafted World a go – there’s even a free demo, so there’s nothing to lose. I highly recommend the game to gamers who enjoy playing with their family or a young child. Although I had a few complaints here and there, it was nothing to make me not want to recommend the game.
Chris Bowman — Apr 05, 2019
Overall, Yoshi’s Crafted World is hours of fun for you and your whole family. Being able to step into a world with Yoshi as your main character will bring glee to any fans heart. He acts just as you remember from Super Mario World with all new tricks up his sleeve. For $59.99 USD you can own a copy of Yoshi’s Crafted World and you will not regret it.
Kirstin Swalley — Apr 01, 2019
In terms of gameplay itself, Crafted World is a great step-up from Woolly World. It feels closer to the original Yoshi’s Island, with some brand new quirks added in along the way. Every single stage in Crafted World feels like an entirely different idea come to life, which makes it all feel like a brand new adventure the moment Yoshi jumps in. While the music is a bit of a disappointment, it’s still enjoyable and light-hearted the whole time which fits the soft adventures of the wonderful crafted Yoshi.
Kallie Plagge — Mar 28, 2019
Yoshi's Crafted World is at its best when it's relaxing and pleasant. The 2D-to-3D level design keeps you curious while the go-at-your-own-pace approach keeps the pressure off and leaves you to appreciate the small, imaginative details. Its most interesting ideas never evolve past their first introductions and are frequently confined to one or two levels, but individually, those levels both reward your curiosity and your willingness to slow down and look at what's around you--and it's those simple pleasures that provide the most joy.
Darryn Bonthuys — Mar 27, 2019
There’s a certain tangible feeling to all the chaos that you’re capable of unleashing, a polish that is typical of Nintendo’s high expectations for what their most popular brands should be capable of delivering and the action never skips a beat. You could call this game a mix of arts and craftiness.
A.J. Maciejewski — Mar 27, 2019
Yoshi's Crafted World is one of the cutest games that you'll ever play but it's incredibly easy to the point where it becomes unengaging. That being said, the amount of variety and replay value is top-notch and that makes the familiar gameplay really shine.
Jason Faulkner — Apr 04, 2019
There’s plenty of replayability with Yoshi’s Crafted World as well. The costumes and reversed levels give you plenty of reason to play through each world multiple times, and it’s just a lot of good ol’ Nintendo fun. However, the co-op is absolutely broken and made me want to just quit playing. I sincerely hope that Nintendo patches those issues because anyone who wants this game for its multiplayer is going to be incredibly disappointed.
Reuben Mount — Mar 27, 2019
Yoshi’s Crafted World is not a difficult game, nor will it set the world alight, but that honestly is not the point. Like the handicraft games before it, it’s more of a showcase of the creativity of Nintendo if allowed free rein on a concept. It’s a gentle romp through ingenious and lovingly created little paper-craft projects, and it doesn’t need to be more than that.
Stefan L — Mar 27, 2019
Yoshi's Crafted World is simply lovely. The arts and crafts style is used in so many quirky little ways, the soundtrack lodges itself in your brain, and there's the same kind of laid back family friendly collectathon platforming that the series is now known for. Its one real new trick is its art style, sure, but that doesn't make it any less charming and wholesome.
GameCentral — Mar 27, 2019
In that, and many other ways, Yoshi’s Crafted World is a success, but it still feels like it’s coasting along, never really bothering to push itself or its concept as far as it can go. That’s resulted in a game that’s very entertaining but one where more imagination seems to have gone into creating the backgrounds than most of the gameplay.
David Caballero — Mar 27, 2019
All things considered, although we weren't quite as taken with it as we were with Woolly World, Yoshi's Crafted World really stands on its own and, after a slow start, manages to deliver some truly fresh and varied platforming. If you consider yourself a completionist, or if you're just looking for a good, comprehensive platformer different to Mario and Donkey Kong, you shouldn't miss this one (even if you miss a few eggs at first).
Stephen LaGioia — Apr 10, 2019
It offers an impressive variety of innovative concepts that keep things feeling fresh. At the same time, it adheres to the crisp and familiar mechanics - along with other cool nostalgic nods - found in the classic Yoshi’s Island. It’s quite the artistic marvel too, with its imaginative atmosphere and fine detail, making it one of the prettier games to grace a Nintendo platform. Yoshi’s Crafted World is a pleasant, enduring experience that platforming fans on the Switch shouldn’t miss.
Jordan Biordi — Mar 27, 2019
Yoshi’s Crafted World is by no means a bad game. While I think younger audiences will enjoy the slower pace and more relaxed atmosphere, older players may feel the lack of challenge, and like me, get bored, pretty quickly. There’s definitely a lot to enjoy, but there’s definitely a feeling that something is missing.
Eli Pales — Mar 27, 2019
On the whole, Yoshi’s Crafted World is an excellent platformer worth picking up for any Switch owner. It’s a beefy experience, with lots of levels to beat and items to explore. The art style is unique and the levels innovative. While the bosses and music aren’t perfect, they do little to detract from the overall experience. Yoshi’s Crafted World is well worth playing with friends or alone.Disclaimer: The code for Yoshi’s Crafted World was provided for review by Nintendo.
Alan Bell — Mar 29, 2019
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.
Steve Wright — Mar 28, 2019
That’s not to say normal levels aren’t good, they’re just rather bland. They’re safe, much like the game itself. Yoshi’s Crafted World is not going to win any awards, but it’s enjoyable nonetheless. Things are easy for far too long before ramping up near the end; I wish that challenge was present throughout more of the levels. If you’re after a cute time rather than a genre-defining one, this’ll work just fine.
Shannon Grixti — Apr 01, 2019
Yoshi's Crafted World is a fantastic reminder of what makes Nintendo games great. At a time when other publishers are adding more and more into their games, Nintendo has shown that creative levels and an incredibly cute art style is all you need for a good time.
Pedro Pérez Cesari — Apr 01, 2019
En pocas palabras: se trata de un plataformero realmente destacado que resulta imperdible para los fans del género; en especial para quienes hayan quedado enamorados de Yoshi’s Island. Para el público ajeno a este género también es una buena opción por ser divertido y ofrecer una buena cantidad de contenido. Eso sí, puede que para algunos su falta de reto, así como su aspecto infantil sean factores que los hagan preferir otros proyectos del ya extenso catálogo de Nintendo Switch.
Jesús Bella — Mar 27, 2019
Yoshi's Crafted World es uno de los mejores videojuegos de la saga Yoshi. Los desarrolladores de Good-Feel vuelven a sorprender con un título que fusiona refrescantes dinámicas plataformeras con un diseño artístico "papercraft" absolutamente precioso, el cual te deja maravillado con cada nuevo nivel. Variado y altamente rejugable, aunque de dificultad algo baja, es uno de esos videojuegos que se pueden recomendar a un amplio espectro de usuarios, siempre que tengan en cuenta que esto es un… ¡¡Yoshi!!
Marta Trivi — Mar 28, 2019
Yoshi’s Crafted World es el ejemplo más puro de las transversalidad de los videojuegos. Accesible para los niños, interesante para los adultos, amable para los novatos, profundo para los aficionados. Lejos de querer frustrarnos, de buscar sacar nuestro lado más competitivo, la finalidad parece ser divertirnos y hacernos sentir bien. Acogernos en su universo de cartón y permitir que nos relajemos entre manualidades. El juego da exactamente lo que prometía. Y no decepciona. Ni siquiera a los que llevamos meses esperándolo.
Sergio Melero — Mar 27, 2019
Yoshi’s Crafted World cumple con todos los parámetros de un título de la franquicia: jugabilidad accesible y divertida, mundos realmente imaginativos, diseño de niveles variado y múltiples mecánicas jugables que, si lo deseamos, podemos disfrutar en cooperativo. Su apartado gráfico Papercraft resulta encantador, pese a que a nivel técnico tenga algún que otro problema de resolución.
Ivan Roman — Mar 28, 2019
Podemos decir que la primera exclusiva del año para Switch no decepciona a nadie y es una grata aventura que cualquier público puede disfrutar sin ningún problema. Lleno de diseños inolvidables y mucha ternura, los niveles son un goce visual de inicio a fin. Pero no todo es perfecto y los fallos de balance y abuso de algunas mecánicas no le permiten llegar más lejos. Pero aún así, creemos que llegó el sucesor de Yoshi’s Island y no podríamos estar más contentos.
Carlos Leiva — Mar 27, 2019
Yoshi's Crafted World es un juego de plataformas muy recomendable: variadísimo, divertido, ameno, entretenido y con mucho contenido para cualquiera con ganas de completarlo en su totalidad. Una pena que falle tantísimo en su banda sonora, aunque siempre está la opción de bajar el volumen y escuchar algo que nos resulte más agradable mientras jugamos. Sea de un modo u otro, si os gusta el género, no deberíais dejarlo escapar.
Jan Wöbbeking — Mar 27, 2019
Trotz einiger Längen bei den Sammelaufgaben ist Nintendo und Good-Feel insgesamt wieder ein guter klassischer Plattformer mit unterhaltsamen Rätseleinlagen gelungen! Die fantasievollen Unreal-Engine-Kulissen wurden schön mit Puzzles und putzigen Figuren garniert, von denen man manche sogar für seine Zwecke einspannt.
Benoît Barny — Mar 27, 2019
Il faut toutefois garder en tête que Yoshi’s Crafted World s’adresse aux jeunes joueurs et impose donc un challenge peu élevé dans l’absolu. Ainsi, les acharnés du pad risquent de rester sur leur faim, même si la quête des 100 % peut s’avérer plus complexe que l’on pourrait le croire au premier abord.
Thomas Pillon — Mar 27, 2019
Quatre ans après l'épisode laineux sorti sur Wii U, Good Feel remet le couvert pour offrir à l'ex-monture devenue star une nouvelle aventure sous le signe de la mignonnerie et du carton. Chatoyant et coloré à souhait, Yoshi's Crafted World profite de sa direction artistique singulière pour dérouler une quarantaine de niveaux faits de bric et de broc tout en respectant les objectifs pléthoriques de la série.
Anagund — Mar 27, 2019
En orientant tout son gameplay vers l’exploration pure, Yoshi’s Crafted World fait le bon choix et propose une expérience des plus agréables. C’est avec plaisir et curiosité que l’on fouille les niveaux, découvrant constamment de nouvelles idées et des secrets par dizaines. Bien qu’il ne faille pas espérer du challenge en matière de gameplay pur, son principal atout est d’offrir une vraie balade naïve et enchanteresse, que l’on vous conseille vivement de parcourir à deux.
Luma — Mar 27, 2019
Dans ce titre mignon à souhait et soigné dans presque chaque détail, Nintendo et Good-Feel appliquent leur savoir-faire avec minutie, ce qui le rend aussi agréable en portable qu'en mode salon, malgré quelques lenteurs dans le rythme. Les nouvelles subtilités du level design sur différents plans permettent de créer d'ingénieux puzzles et de surprendre le joueur sans jamais gêner le gameplay. Bref, Yoshi valide bien son statut de valeur sûre parmi les licences Nintendo.
Tiago Marafona — Mar 27, 2019
Yoshi's Crafted World é tudo aquilo que os fãs do dinossauro da Nintendo vêm pedindo ao longo dos anos. A falta de um padrão no estilo da série Yoshi tem feito com que cada aventura seja verdadeiramente diferente e nem por isso tem perdido charme e qualidade. Crafted World traz um jogo simples, calmo e com forte ênfase na exploração. O seu visual fantástico e os inúmeros pormenores de cada cenário fazem dele uma aventura ímpar. É um jogo para todos.
Nicolò Bicego — Mar 27, 2019
Yoshi’s Crafted World è un altro ottimo tassello nella fortunata storia di Nintendo Switch. Il nuovo platform di casa Nintendo fa un forte utilizzo dell’ormai consolidata tradizione platform degli esperti sviluppatori di Good Feel, ma al contempo vanta un level design fresco ed originale che sfrutta al massimo la scelta stilistica di un mondo ispirato al cartoncino e al fai-da-te.
Marco Perri — Mar 27, 2019
Consigliato a chiunque abbia ancora voglia di emozionarsi con un prodotto puro, spensierato, sognante e appagante nella sua essenzialità.
Denis Koshelev — Apr 01, 2019
Yoshi's Crafted World сложно ругать – слишком уж она милая, слишком невинная и добрая. Это видеоигровой бальзам, инъекция позитива и смеха. Много вы знаете других таких игр? Да, платформеров немало, но Йоши – он такой один. Да, нынешняя финансовая ситуация заставляет ритейлеров задирать стоимость до небес, и большинство моих соотечественников попросту не рискнёт тратить такие деньги на относительно простой платформер. Но это никак не умаляет всех его многочисленных достоинств.
Ersin Kılıç — Apr 04, 2019
Sonuç olarak Yoshi's Crafted World platform türünü seviyorsanız ve Switch sahibiyseniz göz atabileceğiniz bir yapım. Mario oyunlarında olduğu gibi dinamik bir oynanış bekleyenleri üzebilecek olan yapım kendine has dinamikleri ve eğlenceli yapısı ile ön plana çıkmayı başarıyor. Benel hatlarıyla baktığımda ise oyunun küçük yaştaki oyuncuları çok daha fazla eğlendireceğini söyleyebilirim.
Rox van der Helm — Mar 27, 2019
Yoshi's Crafted World is een heerlijke game geworden voor de Switch, een die elke platformliefhebber in huis moet halen. Hoewel de game leuk is om alleen te spelen, raden we je aan het spel vooral samen te spelen, want de co-op is om van te smullen. Laat je mee voeren door prachtig ontworpen levels waarbij je nog net je vingers niet aflikt. De game is prachtig! Het is fantastisch om continu dingen te zien gebeuren in de voor- en achtergrond waar de vrolijkheid continu van afspat.

Navyše autori nevedeli dobre využiť potenciál všetkého, čo ponúka. Tí starší ňou navyše preletia pomerne rýchlo. Zaberie vám možno nejakých 7 hodín (aj keď budete mať na konte možno len 70%), čo je asi trošku málo. Osobne mám ale najväčší problém s jej technickým spracovaním, ktoré by podľa mňa ešte mali upraviť updatom, aby mali hráči na výber, aký vizuálny zážitok od hry dostanú.
