Game & Wario gives us new and creative ways to utilize the Wii U Gamepad. The mini games within Game & Wario are fun and amazing ways to use the Wii U Gamepad using fun and awkward motions, which will keep you coming back for more.
For aspiring artist's the "Miiverse Sketch" may be the pinnacle feature of Game & Wario which lets you choose random words from other players and then sketch a picture of it within 60 seconds. You'll get to see other users attempted sketches as well and give them a "Yeah."
Call your friends over because the Multiplayer games are perfect for an exceptional game night with the variety of games ranging from drawing a picture and having your friends guess what it is. Overall this is a must have for your Wii U System.

worth a rent

the single mode has SOME good games and lots of trash. Also lacking in depth.
I regret this purchase and urge others to avoid. This is understandably good to rent. As quickly as it loses its luster [few hours], you can send it back
Weak sauce, Wario

Just as Smooth as Smooth Moves

In this version, you get sixteen games – twelve games single player games and four multiplayer games
For the single player games, you have to unlock them by beating the previous game. Usually this would turn me off, but in this instance, it’s not a problem because unlocking the games isn’t too tough.
And the games are for the most part, fun. There’s the Arrow game where you shoot advancing robots with regular arrows and with powerful sneeze arrows.
And there’s the game where you ski down slopes or go on an endless ski journey. And there’s the game where you piece together pictures.
But the best game for me is the 9 Volt game. Here, you have to keep an eye on both screens. As you play simple games on the WiiU game pad, you have to keep an eye on the bedroom scene on the TV screen.
Every now and then, 9 Volt’s mother jumps in – from the window or the TV in the bedroom or the door. When she does, you have to hit the shoulder buttons so 9 Volt can pretend to sleep – and not get caught by his mother.
The multiplayer games are also fun; you play their version of Pictionary, or you can launch little creatures onto islands to score points.
And there are special prizes for doing well in these games. You get tokens to unlock odd features.
You can get info on all the characters.
You can make a sign and hold it up to passing motorists to hitch a ride.
You can play a Beyblade type game.
You can trip up a bunch of people with a rope – and so much more
But there are a few problems with this game. Some of the games have very few levels to them – and are over far too quickly (I’m looking at you, Ashley).
And I was hoping they use the Single player games in the Multiplayer part like in Smooth Moves
Still, this game is a whole lot of fun for a single player or a party, and I say Game & Wario is worth the $40 price tag.
