  • Summary: [WiiWare] Muscle March is a quirky Japanese action game stuffed full of macho bodybuilders. The all mighty protein powder has been stolen, so it's up to Tony and his muscle-bound crew to catch the thieves. Choose from a variety of perfectly molded superstars and bring these terrible villains to justice. As the thieves attempt escape, they will smash through walls while making a variety of poses. You must match these poses to fit through the holes and catch up to the thieves. The protein powder will be yours again! Flex your muscles by yourself or with up to three friends in turn-based macho excitement. Posing for a few minutes not enough? Enjoy Endless Rush mode until your muscles bulge and explode! Muscle March will also be the first WiiWare title to offer a polar bear in tight swimwear! [Nintendo] Expand

  1. An interactive joke and a good one at that. The controls aren't quite sharp enough, though. [May 2010]
  2. If you dig zany Japanese games or if you're just searching for something dumb to play during your alcoholic nights with friends, easily go for it: Muscle March is definitely the game for you. You'll have fun for a while and you'll discover the beefcake homo-macho that's in you!
  3. Muscle March is a lot of fun simply because it’s just so damn strange. It’s definitely worth a download, even if you only pull it to make your friends’ jaws hit the floor from time-to-time.
  4. It's short, crazy and fun. It’s definitely worth a download.
  5. A bit strange, but fun. It’s too bad the game is very short and the controls are anything but precise, but you’ll laugh until tomorrow thanks to the crazy bodybuilders and their sexy moves.
  6. It's ridiculous, but it's executed so garishly, and revels in its own absurdity with such confidence, that you can forgive it for being the shallow nonsense that it is. [Apr 2010, p.76]
  7. It seems contradictory that a game about girthy bodybuilders (and their polar-bear friend) can be so crushingly thin.

    This is a wacky, fun arcade game. Remember those? It's what created the industry in the first place. The question people never seem to consider anymore in reviewing these is: Do you have fun? Yes, this game gets extremely challenging around the 3 level (Damn that Mech Muscle!) but it's still a lot of fun for a 15-30 minute stretch. And, I swear that if you play it for more than 10 and really do the poses your upper body muscles will feel a bit tighter than before you started. What more do you want from a $5 arcade game?! Expand

    Great idea and concept but the inaccurate controls are what ruin this game. The motion based gestures simply do not work the majority of the time. Too bad because it could have been a really fun experience. Expand

    This game was plain stupid. Running around doing for stupid poses smashing through walls just isn't fun. Especially when you have laggy, horrible controls that can't do a thing. This is about the worst game i've played.
