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.
SNESNintendo Magazine System UK
A skillfully-designed puzzle game with plenty of lasting appeal thanks to the selection of games available. The wonderful Mario World characterisation is the icing on the cookie.
Contrairement aux apparences, Yoshi's Cookie n'est pas un énième spin-off sans saveur de la série Mario mais bel et bien un puzzle-game unique en son genre qui fait honneur aux jeux de réflexion. En parvenant à mêler la logique de déplacement des objets façon Rubik's cube à un environnement proche de Tetris, le soft offre un challenge d'un nouveau type. Avec trois modes de jeu bien distincts et particulièrement fournis en contenu, le joueur avide de casse-tête en aura pour son argent. On regrettera seulement que le rendu visuel soit en deçà de ce gameplay haut en couleur mais cela ne saurait constituer un obstacle à l'achat de cette petite perle vidéoludique.
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.

The game can be a little tricky to control at times thanks to a slow-moving cursor. The different modes offer a nice balance of gameplay, however, and you'll be hooked after a few tries!
NESAll 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.

Wow, what an above average puzzle game for the GB. The game does deserve a bit more credit then that though, I will call the game, "Super Above Average." Of course, this GB puzzle game comes no where near earning Tombo's Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Puzzlence. Only Tetris may have that award.

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.

The graphics are clear, with each cookie very distinctive, but it all looks undeniably dull, even by Gameboy standards.

Yoshi's Cookie is a decent enough little puzzler and you could do a lot worse for 500 Wii Points. However, with the likes of Dr Mario coming to Wii Software soon it may be worth holding on for that, since it'll offer better puzzling action...

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.

Jolly lovely and decidedly playable in a not-particularly long-lasting way.
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.

For the sad truth is that even the nice enough VS mode isn't enough to save this. You can squeeze -some- genuine fun out of this, providing that you squeeze very strongly, but it's not that much and certainly not worth the asking price.

Die Grafik ist zwar hübsch bunt und nett gezeichnet, bringt aber ansonsten nichts Weltbewegendes. Sound und FX reißen nicht gerade vom Hocker. Wer's mag – mein Geschmack ist's nicht unbedingt. Ich bleib' lieber beim altbewährten Tetris.
A chaque fois ou presque, c'est Nintendo qui réalise. Dans le cas de Yoshi's Cookie, ils prennent en charge le développement de la version NES, pendant que la version Super Nintendo, ultérieure, est réalisée conjointement par Bullet-Proof Software, Home Data et Nintendo. Et contre toute attente, la version que Nintendo entreprend tout seul ne leur réussit pas. Le principe est tout bête, l'équipe de développement imposante, le hardware maîtrisé, alors pourquoi ce pétard mouillé ? Peut-être parce que le concept n'est pas bien amusant. Nintendo l'a tout de suite senti et le coeur n'y est pas, mais on croit encore en Pajitnov, les répercussions de Tetris sont toujours là.

Yoshi's Cookie macht schon allein eine Zeitlang wirklich Spaß. Richtig gut wird das Game aber erst im Mehrspieler-Modus. Für einen Platz unter den legendären Game-Boy-Spielen reicht es sicher nicht, aber ein solide gemachten Action-Puzzle ist doch auch was wert, oder?
SNESMega Fun
Auf den ersten Blick macht Yoshi‘s Cookie sicherlich jedem Spaß. Das Spiel ist schnell gelernt und man kommt sehr flott zu seinen ersten Erfolgserlebnissen. Doch da sich die Bewe-gungen nur auf zwei Möglichkeiten beschränken, artet das ganze schnell in Monotonie aus. Nur zu zweit im Versus-Mode weiß dieses Modul noch längerfristig zu motivieren. Die Möglichkeiten der Attacken sind nämlich genau das Richtige für meine sadistische Ader. Trotzdem kann ich. Yoshi‘s Cookie nur denen empfehlen, die mehr die ruhigen Denkspiele a la Shanghai bevorzugen; ansonsten solltet Ihr Euch lieber nach unserer Referenz umschauen, denn in Cosmo Gang ist viel mehr Power drin.

You can alter the speed at which new blocks arrive - although anything below the top speed is pretty turgid - and there's also a two-player versus mode. It never really set the puzzle game genre alight, but it still manages to exert some of that familiar hypnotic allure and keeps you playing longer than is strictly necessary.
WiiNintendo Life
Besides the main mode, there's not much else, really, just a two player versus mode. If you have some confidence in Nintendo, I would suggest waiting/hoping for the SNES version of the game to show up instead. Aside from obviously improved graphics (it uses some Super Mario World sprites and backgrounds in addition to new ones) and sound, it's got an added puzzle mode and some amusing cutscenes (the NES version also has cutscenes but they're pretty basic and very short).
Overall, Yoshi's Cookie is a fair and favorable puzzler that – while not a candidate for immediate recommendation – wouldn't be a waste of your Wii Points should you decide to spend 500 of them on it. It's one of Nintendo's more obscure puzzle designs, and it sets itself apart in that it's not a clone of the "falling block" style of Tetris like so many other puzzlers are. Give it a look if you're a fan of the genre looking for something that's just a bit different.

Joshi‘s Cookie ist ein nettes Denkspiel, daß sich problemlos zwischendurch spielen läßt. Die Steuerung ist gut gelöst und der Anspruch steigt mit der Zeit gewaltig an. Leider finde ich in diesem Spiel keinerlei neue Ideen. Solche Module gibt es auf dem Game Boy im Überfluß. Daß Yoshi und Mario jene Meisterbäcker sind, die den Screen pausenlos mit Ihren Produkten überhäufen, hat seine Ursache eindeutig im Werbeeffekt. Kaum eine Schandtat, zu der Yoshi nicht mißbraucht wird. Spielt man allerdings im Verbund mit anderen, so stellt sich nach kurzer Zeit der “Mensch ärgere Dich nicht“-Effekt ein: eine von Schadenfreude begleitete gute Laune, wobei gegenseitig verteilte Fallen, gelegentlich den Verursacher selbst treffen.
