  Great game but

Its a great game, especially for the price you can get it now. The only small downside in my opinion is that there isn't much of a story. You only have the start movie and the end movie.

And the shop doesn't have a lot to buy compared to the money you get if you just play the game, especially if you complete every mission. Would have made the game a little more intresting if you don't just collect the coins for the missions because once you complete the money mission I just raced to the area where i needed to be and not caring about the coins that I see along the way.

The levels are nice to see and play, the "puzzles" all look the same but there is usually a slight difference in the way you need to solve it so it stays intresting to play. Its a great game for all ages only the levels you can unlock after beating the boss might be to hard for the younger gamers.

Well,its a good game for all you 2d platforming gamers out there.i enjoyed playing it,but the truth is after the first 4-5 hours it gets boring.the animation is great,but you can't help but feel you are playing the same kind of level again and again.if you want it,by all means buy it.it has potential,but next time nintendo,try harder! 3 Out of 5

To put it simply this game is amazing, if you are a fan of the old style mario and sonic games or any or the old side scrolling games then this is a must, ive not liked any of the newer mario or sonic games since they have gone 3d but wario just takes it back and its a very welcome change.

The use of the shake system and the powers u have like thumping the ground to make things fall or to make the ground raise up is enjoyable, also the option to replay levels to complete objectives like jump on 3 enemys at once or collect 25000 coins will be a welcome to completists

I def give this game 5 out of 5 pick it up now and especially buy it off play because in the game shops its £5 more

  Top notch 2D platforming action

Wario makes a return to the "Wario Land" series of games for the first time on the Wii. If you've played any other games from the series you'll already have a good idea of what to expect, if not, then the basic premise of the game is guiding Wario around levels collecting treasure and working your way towards the boss.

Now for a little more in depth description. Wario Land: The Shake Dimension is a beautiful game, The graphical style would lead you to believe you were playing a cartoon as all the characters are hand drawn and wonderfully animated. Levels are a joy to run/jump/swim through and the background music is enjoyable with some truely epic boss themes. The controls are simple, with the remote held sideways and the 1 & 2 buttons used to attack and jump respectively, the D pad to move wario and shaking/tilting the remote to perform various actions.

There are 5 worlds to explore with 4 levels and a boss fight within each of them and although this might sound short there are "missions" and treasures within each level you can choose to complete that add extra longevity to the game. Also, there are extra hidden levels to unlock.

Deffinatly worth a pick up for the gorgeous graphics, simple yet effective controls and the general experience of playing the game.
