  1. The way the game utilises the controller is beautiful and - as ever - the humour superb, yet it's a game short on long-term appeal because it never really dares to test players.
  2. It’s a game that instantly endears itself to all who strap on the Wii Remote providing fun in short bursts and while the games main character is on the slightly chunky side, WarioWare: Smooth Moves regrettably doesn’t carry as much weight.
  3. You can see everything that the game has to offer in one solid evening of gaming, which makes a full price tag hard to swallow. However, Smooth Moves is one of the best rentals that you could make for your next party.

    Sadly, like many other previous WarioWare games, Smooth Moves doesn't have much replay value. Even though there are 200 mini games and about 20 different controller positions, there isn't much to do once you've completed the game.

    So a superb solo experience that can be shared with ease is what’s really on offer. Whereas the addition of better multiplayer options would have seen the title become essential, what’s featured is more than enough. [Jan 2007, p.112]
  6. Smooth Moves’ visuals certainly don’t push pixels, but it’s incredibly fun to look at.

    Only a loner in a basement with a pre-determined mindset could possibly call this game a waste of money. It's an absolute blast. Gamers Only a loner in a basement with a pre-determined mindset could possibly call this game a waste of money. It's an absolute blast. Gamers in my home love to get competitive with this game. Non-gamers in my home end up laughing so hard that they hold their sides in pain and wipe tears from their eyes- even those who aren't playing. And I'm talking about social adults, not little children. The game is anything but boring. If you don't like this game, you don't like laughter. Full Review »

    I'm a huge fan of Wario Ware and I've played all the version, but this game falls short of the 9's that the other games were. I'm a huge fan of Wario Ware and I've played all the version, but this game falls short of the 9's that the other games were. The micro games are some of the best and weirdest that have ever appeared in a wario ware game. Sadly the solo game is EXTREMELY short and there isn't much insentive to replay the characters stage. The thing that really got me though was how poor the multiplayer was. Pretty much all the variants are hot potato games and make the game too slow to play. There is only 4 multiplayer gametypes which is sad because multiplayer was the thing I was most excited for. I recommend this for any wario ware fan, but if you are unfamiliar with Wario Ware or isn't into beating your highscores then its just a rent. Full Review »

    It was fun, but ultimately too short. You can beat it in an afternoon easily.
