All in all, Yoshi's Cookie is one of the best puzzle games I have ever played. It's accessible yet challenging, addictive and fun. Get and it you'll be hooked.

NES Player
Now as with all the good puzzle games, this game has 2-player mode. If you have a friend, buy Yoshi's Cookie for this sole reason. It's blast because you get a choice of new music (in my opinion, slightly better, too) and it's a fast-paced race to the finish. The gameplay is different, as this time, you can never run out of cookies, and you play to fill up a meter. Along the way, you can play some nasty tricks on your opponent by blacking out the center of their screen, or scrambling it up (careful, they can do the same thing back!). Highly recommended for the puzzle game fan.

All Game Guide
With more than 100 levels (including an expert's game) in the one-player mode, and endless hours of entertaining, brain-melting puzzle action in the two-player mode, Yoshi's Cookie is a game puzzle fans shouldn't do without.

The Video Game Critic
Coming on the heels of the addictive puzzler Yoshi, Yoshi's Cookie provides a completely different challenge. This time you are presented with a grid of cookies of various shapes. You rotate the rows and columns trying to create a complete row or column of the same cookie, which eliminates that row. You must clear all the cookies to advance to the next level. Meanwhile, new rows and columns approach from above and to the right. I like the fact that you can actually "clear" the levels as opposed to playing until you get overwhelmed. I also enjoyed how it's possible to stumble across cool combos accidentally. Yoshi's Cookie is original and fun, but it didn't quite suck me in like the original Yoshi did.

Overall, this game is quite fun, and a worthwhile diversion, but it doesn’t measure up to some of the other puzzle games on the NES. I would recommend you get this game, but remember that there are other good puzzle games on the console as well.

But I can't help thinking Mario fans, like me, may be just a little disappointed with this. Cookie chompin' laughs but a bit thin on the ground.
