    ive never played any of the warioware games until this one . i will say this its very different and not any thing i could compare it too. its also a good use of the wiimote. but the game is just to wierd and kinda pointless theres really no way of disribing it clearly to any one who hasnt played one of them before other then its a huge collection of very short and very strange minigames. i would say rent it if you wana see some thing strange and different .

    Yes it's short, yes it's stupid, yes it has poor graphics, yes these "flaws" are intentional. WarioWare takes what makes games bad exploits it for a great time playing. This is no serious game - it's all about hanging out with friends and family and laughing the whole way through. Those who say it's too short don't realize that it's only supposed to be played 20-30 minutes a day for cutting loose at the end of a tough day when sitting for four hours and playing another one of Nintendo's masterpieces just isn't possible. And on top of that, the multiplayer modes just add to the experience - sure there's not many and they're quite simple, but the minigames keep it fun and can be picked up right away, making it automatically fun for everyone who wants to live and laugh a little. It's competitive, it's weird, it's fun - it's how the Wii was meant to be played. Expand

    Smooth mooves as some of the best fun you can have with friends or by yourself... for about an hour. The problem with such short minigames is that they don't add up to much game. Anybody with a pulse and a working body will have fun with Smooth Mooves, but just not for long. Surely worth renting.

    WarioWare Smooth Moves is a fun game to play straight out of the box. The graphics are cartoony and suit the Wii well, so they don't appear clunky or dated. The games are fun - they have a variety of 'forms', ie ways to hold the Wiimote (eg 'The Diner', 'The Umbrella', and my personal favourite 'The Elephant'). The character roster features old favourites like Wario, Mona, Dribble & Spitz and Dr. Crygor, but adds new characters like Crygor's daughter Penny. Old minigame favourite Pyoro also returns in 'Pyoro S'
    Overall a brilliantly fun and funny game with a great sense of humour - highly recommended.

    WarioWare could only be called a good game if you like fun. The controls are great and everything about this game is pure delight. Highly recommended for children, drunks, and anyone else who knows how to have a good time.

    I think if you enjoy games like WarioWare and Mario Party, you will enjoy this -- and if you don't, you will not enjoy WW:Smooth Moves. Mini-games have great variety and the devs did great, innovative mechanics using the Wiimote, which is surprisingly rare with Wii games. There are some fun multiplayer games, but just not enough. Once the nunchuk gets involved, gameplay becomes very challenging -- I doubt anyone calling the game easy has made it to the "red elephant." Playing the hard levels works up a sweat and requires a fair amount of mental agility to keep up. While the majority of controls and concepts are very intuitive, there are a couple I still don't understand and fail at every time the mini-game comes up. The game is absolutely hilarious in some parts with graphic devs showing a great eye for absurdity. That said, the "movies" in the game should have been skippable because they were simply "cute" -- not funny, interesting, or disturbing - an odd part of the game which in a different universe from the rest of the game's atmosphere. The game has solid replay value and is one of the only Wii games I find myself picking up every now and then to play after having effectively finished it. Expand

    If you don't have friends or family DON'T BUY THIS GAME! The single player is very easy and I beat it within 4 hours and had every mode unlocked. This game is extremely fun to play with other people, but not a very good experience alone.

    As with the other games in the series, 5 seconds is all you need for each of these minier-than-minigames microgames, but with the invention of the Wii and Wii remote, they had to add motion controls.

    If you’ve played other games in the series, you know how crazy Wario’s money scheme of a game can be, with short amounts of time to do things from sharpening pencils to picking noses (yes,
    it’s true). For those of you who haven’t, be prepared, because Wario is lazy and impatient, and the very short and simple microgames he makes show it off.

    Since this was made for the Wii, motion controls and the sensor bar are almost the only things that you use (aside from a few clicks of the A and B buttons), though the microgames Nintendo has come up with are original and fun despite being weird and short. Actions range from shaking to swinging to dancing, and the game never feels too easy - there are actually some that are more difficult than others, though this doesn’t feel negative in any way. And there are about 20 starting ‘forms’, or positions, at the start of each microgame, which tells you how you should position yourself for each game, like holding the Wii Remote vertically or holding it on top of your head.

    I can’t say anything specific about the microgame graphics - they’re all meant to give a different feel to the games. One microgame might be a 3D flipping of a pancake, and the next might be pixel Mario collecting coins from a block. The cutscenes and world map have a cartoonish style, but there isn’t much animation in the characters, they’re all either stop motions or moving pictures. Then there’s the sound. There’s music everywhere; there’s almost always music playing. The sound effects are really fitting if not sometimes funny, like when Wario bursts out from a wanted poster you had to flatten on to the wall.

    Although the story part of the game is short and could be completed in a few hours, you only discover half of the microgames the first time ‘round. There are over 200 microgames, and if you want them all, you have to replay the section in which the microgame comes from, which can get a little bit repetitive if you’re unlucky. Every time you play, the game randomizes the microgames that you go through. After a certain amount of microgames, they get faster and you have less time to complete them, and eventually you’ll get to a boss game, that is challenging but has no time limit. After that, the minigames become harder, and you’ll cycle through that 3 times before reaching a point where every microgame you play gets a little bit faster.

    After completing the game, there are the extras. First there’s the actual, full games, which include a bird version of Space Invaders and a block stacking game. Then there’s a set of microgames that use the Balance Stone, a.k.a the Nunchuk. There’s a fitness-type stage that has you moving a lot. There’s a sound studio, and finally, there are four games that mix up all the microgames in different ways, for example, starting out really fast or not telling you what form to use.

    Fast and fun, WarioWare Smooth Moves has over 200 microgames and makes really good use of the Wii’s motion controls and sensor bar, though multiplayer could be improved a bit with more game modes and multi-controller support.

    La saga de Warioware es el mejor ejemplo que se puede tener de la ludología en los videojuegos. Sin duda una de las sagas más delirantes y con más cambios de mecánicas de la historia.

    Where the true value of Warioware lies is in both its multiplayer experience - which, depending on how Mario Party turns out, could be the definitive Wii party game - and it's unrivaled charm.

    I had a great time with Wario Ware: Smooth Moves, and you'll get a lot of value out of the game if you're the type that hosts parties or if you have a group of friends or family already that are enjoying games like "Wii Sports" or "Rayman: Raving Rabbids" together.
  3. Bigger than before and funny enough to make anyone smile, but control problems annoy. [Feb 2007, p.78]
