Still being as weird as he ever is, Wario comes out with another game with his many other weird friends!
Starts out with Wario finding a Wii remote, apparently called the Form Baton in this game. And then of course something happens. That “something” happens to be an enormous boulder! Then starts the first batch of minigames. Once you complete that, another option opens up, and another, etc. Each with their own mini-story. And it would take another entire review to list them. Anyway longstory short, at the end, after Wario grows back to normal size (you gotta play to understand), he starts being chased by mini things (I don’t even know if they have a name). And then…well I won’t spoil it for you.
The gameplay is quite good. The many different forms give tons of variety. All are explained quite nicely (with a good amount of humor added into them). Quite a few forms have difficult minigames (I personally think the cookie-cutter one is the hardest) and can be super hard at times. The Wii remote really makes it realistic. What I think about it… well some microgames can be difficult to understand at times (like one remaking an old western shooter). Now some are knockoffs of old games. Which seemed cool to me… for the first 4 times I played them. There are too many. Having a bigger Nintendo freak than I am with his own microgame section can do that. But overall the gameplay is pretty good.
The graphics are really good. Of course this is the Wii were talking about. The graphics are ALWAYS good. I think. I haven’t played every single Wii game there is (and I won’t, at least until I’m 17. No freaking way your gonna be able to get me to play RE4 until then). Considering it’s the Wii. It’s about average. So that’s why I’m giving the graphics a 7.
Sound? I’ll be as subtle as possible describing it. OVER AND OVER they have ANNOYING, REPETITIVELY sounds, again and again. Hearing the same sounds gets annoying after awhile! Give some variety! Give some voiceovers! Don’t just give the occasional stupid “Yeah!” or “Oh no!”. STOP FEEDING US THE POOP! That’s about it.
Replayability is what this game is made out of. Enough said.
Oh the challenge. TOO MUCH! TOO FRUSTRATING! MOST OF THE CHALLENGE MARKS ARE IN FRUSTRATION CATEGORY! In case you didn’t know, that’s bad in my reviews.
Repeat previous category.
Oh no, I don’t know how to do value. I’ll just embarrass myself.
By the way, I’ve never mentioned this before but in my reviews, a 7 or higher is a pass, and a 6 or lower is a fail.
I think I’ve dumped on this game enough already have you?
