He's fat, he's stinky and he's back with Wario Land: Shake it for Nintendo Wii! Here's our game review.

Wario, Mario's grossly stinky bro, is back with another adventure! When his latest stolen treasure tells him about a kidnapped queen Wario doesn't care. But the stolen Bottomless Coin Sack gets the greedy dude on the move! This Wii game is a retro adventure with a giant sack of controller-shaking to spice it up. Here's Gary's Wario Land game review.

Shakin' It Wario Style!

This game puts you in control of Wario through 25 levels of coin-grabbing mayhem. As you play you'll be shaking coins out of bags, slamming the ground, throwing anything you can get your hands on and more, including steering the Subwarine, all with the Wiimote! There are five bosses to battle and lots of coins to collect so you can buy a map to the next level and finally get the Bottomless Coin Sack, er, rescue the queen.

Shaketacular!

Captain Maple Syrup the pirate? The Subwarine? Ha-ha! This game is bizarre, from the plot to Wario's greedy antics. It also looks fantastic, with great levels and enemies even though it's kinda retro. The controls are easy enough for anyone, but it also has puzzles to challenge your brain as you play.

Stop Shaking, I'm Gonna Hurl!

The good news is that there isn't enough shaking to make you barf. The bad news is that it's because the game is too short! You can run around the levels in a dozen different ways, but it won't take you too long to finish the game. Unfortunately, the shaking controls are weak too. They work, but they aren't as fun as they should be!

Wario FTW!

With a pile of crazy characters including Mario's famously gross bro, and a bunch of different ways to use the Wiimote to play, this game is a lot of fun. Even though it's a bit short and some of the controls are a bit ho-hum, Wario's latest adventure will really get you moving!

Thumbs Up:

  • Wario is gross!
  • Easy enough for anyone to play.
  • Lots of Wiimote shaking and weirdness.
  • The plot and characters are so goofy!
  • Explore the levels any way you want.

  • Thumbs Down:

  • Wario is gross!
  • The game is too short.
  • The shaking controls aren't great.

  • Game Rating: 4


    Available for: Wii.

    Wario - Jerk or Misunderstood?

    • He's not misunderstood, he's a smelly jerk!
    • He's just misunderstood, he should talk to Dear Dish-It.

    I know, but you can say the name such as "I just got this game from GameStop." THAT'S what I meant. If you can do it in comments, why can't you do it here?
