Maybe I thought it would surprise me more. I was kind of hoping that they will eventually bring out Yoshi's Island for the Wii VC. They have Yoshi's Story--which IMO, was an abhorrent piece of crap on the N64.
Anyways, loaded this one up. Made more than a few mistakes in playing it, but ended up clearing Island 1: yoshi's island in about fifteen minutes. I kind of remember it being a little bit more tricky.
Though, it likely will get to be harder, if I start to get cocky about it.
