  1. Everything from the design of the bosses to the absolutely incredible levels screams personality.
  2. 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!

    Boasting fantastic graphics and awesome transparency effects for water and fog, Wario Land 4 pushes the GBA to its visual limits.
  4. It's still the best original platformer on GBA, mind. Stitch that Mario! Waaaaaaa! [GamesMaster Magazine]
  5. The gameplay is tight and varied, the graphics are detailed and bright, and the sound is second to none.

    An incredibly entertaining, diverse, and humorous addition to the Mario/Wario legacy. It's challenging and creative, but not as outright frustrating as "Warioland 3."
  7. Graphically the game looks fantastic. The game is insanely colorful and the sprites are well animated.
  8. 90
    Wario rocks -- there's a lot of variety in the game design and is more challenging than the usual side-scrolling fare due to its focus on making players figure out how to get to certain locations in the level.
  9. These mini-games are one of the only things about Wario Land 4 that I didn't like. In a nutshell, they're repetitive and don't give enough money. Plus, the mini-games are limited in their fun factor.
  10. Holds your interest by constantly throwing new play mechanics and puzzles at you. [Spring 2002, p.42]

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! Full Review »
