  • Summary: Hey! You! Yeah, you! Listen up when Wario's talking to you! I just read about this legendary Pyramid of Gold, and you're gonna help me go explore it. There's lots of treasure in there for the taking, and I want it all. I'm sure there are gonna be all kinds of weird enemies and big, bad bosses in there, so if you don't think you can hack it, put the game down now. I don't want any losers making me jump into bottomless pits, you hear me? Expand

  1. Graphically the game looks fantastic. The game is insanely colorful and the sprites are well animated.
  2. Everything from the design of the bosses to the absolutely incredible levels screams personality.
  3. At the conclusion of some of the levels there are awesome mini-games...Homerun in Wario is awesome--it tests your baseball skills as much as your platform gaming skills!
  4. The gameplay is tight and varied, the graphics are detailed and bright, and the sound is second to none.
  5. It's nothing new to the Wario Land enthusiast, but it's enjoyable nonetheless. [Jan 2002, p.96]
  6. There's a lot in Warioland to wow you but, at the end of the day, it's just a GBC adventure with nice graphics. Which is REAL daylight robbery.
  7. One slight drawback is that without a light for your GBA some of the levels are quite dark and the action further down the line can be somewhat repetitive even with the new challenges the game dishes out for you.

    Great f....ing game. Find it used or cheap on ebay... I play it over Halo 2 sometimes. DS screen makes it even better.

    The game was awesome and the sprites were very well done. I liked the controls - they were easy to follow. The music was breath-taking. The music captured every moment, I wish I could download some! Expand

    Welcome to this amazing game in the Wario world. You can execute many types of moves, you can transform into many things. Take this game and store it in your GBA collection. There are 18 courses, 6 bosses, 3 mini-games, and 16 obtainable records. Nintendo knew how to make a GBA classic! And I mention the graphics? They're awesome! Expand

    I think it's the best original platformer on the system.

    Wario Land 4 is a good game with great graphics. The graphics could honestly be passable for the Nintendo DS! The game had some well hidden secrets and much Wario Land style. It is a great platformer with interesting moves, enemies, and bosses. The levels were colorful and the power-ups made for a good time. I had two problems with it though. I missed one of the treasure chests on one of the bosses and I could never get it back. Also, completing the game 100% is difficult. Its length was short, but overall great platformer! Expand

    A real surprise package this. Great graphics and gameplay but replayability is not one of its strong points. The best feature however is collecting the cds scattered around its levels. These contain trippy tunes that can be played on an in-game jukebox, accompanied by a mini music video. Brill Expand
