The first time I was exposed to WarioWare, it was my brother who came up to me with a GBA and said "Play this. It'll seem really stupid, but give it a chance." I've been hooked since.
Touched entertained me for a while...but I managed to unlock everything in two days. That's way too soon, and makes me really happy I rented it instead of bought it.
In all, you don't go wrong renting it...but if you buy it, you'll be disappointed. Once everything is unlocked, you're done. At that point, a multiplayer function where you compete against other players in an elimination round or other multi gametypes would've gone a long way from making this a decent rental to a must own.
This game started off highly bizarre, with little or no indication of what to do from mini-game to mini-game. You do, however, quickly catch on to the simplistic yet oddball games that are included. Such mini-games include stretching parts of a shaded picture to reveal what it really was, guiding a little man across the screen via touch screen to avoid floating mines and spiky pits, cutting drooping snot-bubbles in half, squirting ketchup on french fries and corn dogs, and blowing up an inflatable doll via the DS mic and having it touch a button to count "sit ups".
Strange? Yes. Fun? Very. And all this is super-fast paced, often only giving you 3 or 4 seconds to quickly decipher the cryptic game instructions and complete the mini-game. Once you catch on, however, it becomes insanely addictive, and often rewards you with crazy but cool in-game items, such as a virtual sea-monkey aquarium and clacker balls.
The only real downside to this game is the lack of ANY multiplayer. About the only multiplayer included is a virtual ping pong game you can unlock, which allows 2 people to hold the DS between them and use each shoulder button as the trigger for their paddle. Aside from that, there is NO DS download or connectivity, and no other multiplayer game on there. Thus killing most of the replay value, unless you become obsessed with beating your old score.
Let me start by saying this is a very random game. From the one were you pick your nose. To the one were you unroll toilet paper. You have a number of characters, I just can't remember how much. But you have to do a number of microgames. Then you get to do a final microgame. Some games have you twist. Some games have to touch. Some games have you blow into the mic. My favorite character is warioman. Because he's awesome, and his final microgame is challenging, but fun. My only problem is there isn't as much microgames as the other wario ware games had. well, this is my review, and I hope it was helpful.
