Consoles Plus (Jan, 1994)
Un jeu original, bien réalisé. Pour les plus jeunes d'entre vous.
Joypad (Sep, 1993)
C'est sans aucune doute le meilleur jeu fonctionnant avec le Super Scope.
Power Unlimited (Nov, 1993)
Voor de Scope, de bazooka-achtige lightgun van de Super Nintendo, zijn maar weinig spellen gemaakt. En al helemaal weinig goede spellen. Yoshi's Safari is zo'n enkeling. Het is origineel, ziet er goed uit en is leuk om te spelen. Wel erg makkelijk.
It could have been a contender, but a ridiculously easy difficulty setting spoils it all.
It's not a bad idea, and makes the game less linear and predictable. But you'll keep arguing over who gets stuck with the Scope and who gets to be Yoshi. Tip: the one who is forced into using the torturous Scope will be treated to a full-on massage once the game's over. And I would like to point out that some of the background music is very well done, with the "float castle" BGM casting a spell on me. So there's still something to like in here, and it's quite a nice try, but alas, it's hardly enough to counterbalance the game's shortcomings, and certainly not enough to counterbalance the whopping price tag of the Scope.
Retro Game Reviews (Jun 06, 2015)
Although Yoshi's Safari doesn't have much replayability in the traditional sense it's such a unique experience that you'll want to play through the adventure multiple times. The levels are admittedly short but the boss battles make this game stand out as a great light gun game that can be enjoyed by all ages.
The scrolling and graphics are excellent, but that's it!
When you get down to brass tacks, I suppose Yoshi's Safari is the best Super Scope game available. That's not saying much though, since the only other one in living memory was The Hunt For Red October and we all remember how 'good' that was don't we? It suffers from being a professional, polished game that is just far too easy (I finished it in one afternoon and I'm not exactly the world's greatest marksman). I suppose if you must have a Scope game, this'll be the one for you, but then it's not as though you've much choice, is it?

The thing is, Yoshi's Safari is such an ordeal you won't be tempted to play it a second time.
