  • Summary: Wario and his Diamond City friends are back in action. Game & Wario (working title) features a collection of games that use only the Wii U GamePad controller. The games retain the original flair and character of the micro-games from the WarioWare series.

    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.

    overall really fun game, there was only 4 multi-player games but they were all really fun, single player games were very fun and creative ways to use the game pad, and still fun to pass around with your friends. not as good as previous entries in the series but thought it was a good addition. for 40 dollars its deffinitly worth a pick up Expand

    This game is a lot of fun in Multiplayer. 3 of the four games are great, while one is just good. Of the single player, theres like 4 or 5 that are good or better, the rest are lackluster. If you know your going to be playing with friends, I would recommend this game, as its only $40, but if you're looking for an engaging single player experience, look elsewhere. Expand

    Game & Wario is the type of game that starts out really good and fun and then the more you play it, the more dull and repetitive the game gets. Game & Wario has a wide variety of mini-games to choose from that will keep you busy for maybe a week or two, but then it will get boring. But, the game is so fun while it lasts that it out weighs the bad parts about the game. Each mini-game is relatively fun and not one out of the twelve seems to be boring...to start out with. The games biggest flaw of the game is that it only has four multiplayer games. They are all really fun, but the fun only lasts for a little while since there are so few multiplayer games. If you were looking for another great Warioware game, then you might be disappointed. This spin-off of the Warioware series is fun and can be a blast, but only in spurts. But, I still like it better than Nintendo Land, so if you are looking for the Wii U's premiere party game, Game & Wario is where you'll find that experience, even if the game is a bit of a let-down.

    The game is a fun diversion to bring out when friends are over but doesn't have a whole lot of lasting appeal. Each game tries to utilize the GamePad in an interesting way but only a few succeed, these include Shutter, Gamer and Taxi. These three games are great and utilize the unique features of the GamePad in a way that feels genuinely new, innovative and fun. I don't feel this is true for the other nine single player games, while some of them are fun, there is nothing here you haven't already experienced.

    As for the multi-player games, I felt Disco was a very uninspired rhythm game. Fruit was a neat concept but too difficult to keep people interested. Islands is good simple fun, launch little men at different score markers. Lastly there is Sketch, this was my favorite multi-player title but this too offers no innovation, it is just a video game representation of "Pictionary" and nothing more.

    I 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. Collapse
