The game has received mixed reviews. Joystiq gave it an 80, saying it's "solid [and] reliable." [5] IGN gave it a 79, calling it "the best iteration of Yoshi since the SNES original." [6] Game Informer gave it a 70. [7] Destructoid gave it the same score, calling it "by the books" but noting that "fans of the genre will still dig it." [8] Nintendo World Report stated that "the levels are bland, the bosses are blander, and the difficulty is too low and too static."

Nintendo Life gave it a 50, saying that "it feels stripped of the style, substance, and ingenuity that once made the series such treasured property." GameSpot says the game has "no... identity." [9] Edge Magazine and Eurogamer both gave it with a 40, with the latter saying that the "its design [lacks] almost everything that made [Yoshi's Island] great." [10]
