    Game & Wario’s a game, a label it wears proudly in its name, and it delivers entertainment in spades. Get it.
  2. The very definition of a mixed bag, Game & Wario is innovative, but stingy with it; silly, but a bit of a slog. Beware the bad eggs, cherish the prize ones. [July 2013, p.82]

    Unlike the story depicted in Game & Wario, Wario’s latest game isn’t going to move units. It’s lacking in depth, and while some of the mini-games are stellar, the majority of them are uninspired and dull.

    Even though some games are funny, Game & Wario loses most of the appeal of its predecessors proposing just a bunch of "not-so-special" games.

    Wario, what happened to the fun?

    Wario Ware was once bristling with creativity and energy, fizzing and sputtering with mad, short-form ideas, but Game & Wario is just a bit boring. The selection of games is sparse, and a couple of excellent ones don't make up for the rest.

    A horribly disappointing mini-game collection that has none of the qualities of the real WarioWare titles and won’t entertain even the most game-starved Wii U owner for more than an hour or so.

    I think this game is not as good as it could be, but what we got was actually well thought out and planned. It has great games with good useI think this game is not as good as it could be, but what we got was actually well thought out and planned. It has great games with good use of the GamePad and making the games flow descent. My only gripe is that its a little too short, unless you have friends, all you need to do is get gold which may take 4-7 hours depending on how well you do. I just think for 34 Gamestop and 40 Nintendo Eshop its worth a rent or a buy. Expand

The co-opThis game is pretty good, but one thing I really miss are how there were multiple mini games, and not just one for each character. The co-op mode, I find was not as good in Smooth Moves, because like I said earlier, you have more mini games, I still suggest to get it though. Overall, its a good game, just has some disappointments. Expand

InsteadI was greatly disappointed by the lack of effort in this game. I really like the previous installments, but this game isn't very fun. Instead of having the normal micro games like previous warioware type games, this game has mini games that are a lot longer and a lot less fun. Expand

It had 2-3 good mini games and the others are just forgettable, I hope that Nintendo will soon bring back some of that Wario Ware magic next year. The game is almost 2 years old. Expand
