Very Good

Lots of fun, but then what?

Wario, upon first play, is an action packed, fun paced game. It's got a great sense of humor, and leaves you laughing just following the "plotline", between the ministories at each level to the Jack Handey-esque instructions when you have to use the controller in a new way. Fans of Japanese pop culture will give bonus points here as well.

As for the actual play, it's a lot of fun, especially playing with a friend. The various movements leave you looking like a moron as you try to replicate the motions (use it like an elephant trunk!), which is what the Wii is all about. Although the game doesn't start with a multi-player mode, you find yourself taking turns with a friend trying to move to the next level without feeling left out. Not really knowing what you're "supposed to do" in the minigames is part of the fun too - everything comes at you 100 miles an hour, so by the time you figure out what you're supposed to do, you've already failed (but you know for the next time).

The #1 issue that holds this from being a top-tier game is the next day. Once you beat the game, there's nowhere else to go. No secret boards, no real "different" levels - just back to square one again. Again, with the games being relatively simple enough that a little practice will allow you to get through each level, it's not too hard to get through all the levels in a day, and then you're left with a game that's going to collect dust until you have a few friends over.

It's a 10 for a rental (which is why you're here) and maybe a 6.5 for a $50 purchase. Definately rent it and let the others buy it, and maybe late on down the line pick it up as a pre-played game or on the discount rack for $20-30, especially if you like to play with friends.

The game Wario ware: smooth moves for the wii is a good hit. Even though it may have some flaws such as reading a fast hit with the remote. it is still good. the things you do in this game are fun and different from any wii games. you may have to get up and dance a little at time but its worth it for some fun. The game play is simple, you use the wii remote in different poses to do certain tasks such as cut a log or even shave a dog. there really isn't much of a story to this game but it does show some interesting figures. the design is not to great for the wii but mainly focus on what you have to do in the game. but to average it out, its mostly a fun game to play with friends then to play alone.

Wario Ware shows the power and just how far the Wiimote can go..but this game severely lacked in length and multiplayer modes..i was hoping to turn it on play with all my friends but nope just single player modes..which dont get me wrong are very very fun!! But the single player mode can be beaten in one day..just rent it..dont spend 50 bucks on this one.
