    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.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Game & Wario is very fun. All the minigames are good-great but Gamer is buy far the best. I have spent so much time playing just this minigame by myself and competing for the high score with friends and family.
    The microgames within the minigames are pretty funny and far more fun than I initially expected for the limited time limits than you can play for.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Game & Wario and I believe it is one of the most underrated titles on the Wii U.

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

    Éste título le añade más excentricidad a la excéntrica franquicia de Wario, "Game & Wario" presenta una serie corta de minijuegos para jugarÉste título le añade más excentricidad a la excéntrica franquicia de Wario, "Game & Wario" presenta una serie corta de minijuegos para jugar solo o con amigos y ver las capacidades de Wii U y su juego a doble pantalla.
    No hay historia o campaña por jugar, sencillamente nos hallamos en el rol de probar el nuevo sistema de Wario para hacer dinero. Cada juego es distinto y con estéticas individuales dependiendo del protagonista que utilicemos, en general son divertidos pero pocos.
    "Game & Wario" es muy entretenido pero limitado, con la cualidad de generar risas. Sería genial que tenga más contenido pero es difícil que suceda.

The opposite should just keep their money because they paid for it and they should regret it. If you can send the game back to get a refund, good for you. You regretted anyways. Expand

It had 2-3 good mini games and the others are just forgettable, I hope that Nintendo will soon bring back some of that Wario Ware magic next year. The game is almost 2 years old. Expand
