    WarioWare Gold is a wonderful addition to the 3DS library at such a late point in the system’s life cycle. Its presentation is largely brilliant, with bright, bold, punchy animations and a seemingly endless variety of visual styles within the microgames themselves. Although some of the magic of the classic microgames is lost thanks to the needless graphical facelifts they’ve been given, overall the vast amounts of chaos and hilarity occurring on-screen is gorgeous. With a litany of modes and content to unlock, veteran and rookie players alike will be occupied for hours trying to see everything that the title has to offer.

    WarioWare Gold manages to be one of the most consistently enjoyable and funny 3DS games in recent memory.

    If you enjoyed past WarioWare games, you won't want to miss this. [Issue #35 – September/October 2018, p. 63]

    It's a true greatest hits package that showcases Wario's unique weirdo vibe, and this style of play remains inventive and thrilling 15 years after the original Game Boy Advance game. We're still hoping for an entirely new title on Switch in the future, but for now Gold is a compelling, generous victory lap.

    While I wish WarioWare Gold had more new than old, it’s definitely the ultimate package of microgames that will give any fan of WarioWare something to truly enjoy.

    300 mini-games and a lot of fun. That what’s anyone can expect from any WarioWare game, and that’s what WarioWare Gold delivers. Even if some of them are a bit confusing at first, and you’ll probably get bored soon enough.

    WarioWare Gold slightly redeems itself only after you've suffered through the feeble punchlines of the Story mode and have unlocked Challenge mode.

It shows all functions of the 3DS (except for the camera function) But everything else is there, the motion control, the touch function and buttons! All there. At first it is a bit frustrating because you don't know how some micro games work, but you can experiment and find it out. Really good game Expand

I spent hours upon hours playing this game and it has been a blast. My personal favorite games are the touch-based ones because I like using the touch screen. Extremely hot take here, but I think we are getting a port of this game to the switch rather than a whole new game. Dub it, "Warioware Gold Deluxe". Overall, pretty solid title and the game that introduced me to the series. Expand
