Good Feel




Action (2D Platformer)


The fat man is back in classic treasure-hunting form in this side-scroller for Wii. When a mysterious globe is delivered to Wario's house, he's just as surprised as anyone when a sprite-like creature called a Merfle pops out. Before long our anti-hero gets roped into helping the Merfles throw off the shackles of the evil Shake King... but only because there's treasure scattered all over their world, including the ultimate prize: a bag of gold coins that is never empty.

Shake Up Some Fun

Wario Land: Shake It is a fun little platforming game. It is on of the rare Wii games where the motion controls are well done and don't seem gimmicky. Getting Wario fro point a to point b and back again is fun and the added challenges of trying to beat the clock back to the starting gate was very fun. As you usually see me say the game got a little repetitive after awhile but it was fun enough that I am keeping it around in hopes of going back to finish it some day.

Back in the Hunt (for Treasure)

"Wario Land: Shake It!" is a much-needed return to the classic Wario formula that made the character famous. After a glut of recent "WarioWare" games that distilled the modern obsession with 'minigames' down to concentrated 'microgames' that last a few seconds and an uninspired showing in both "Wario Land 4" and "Wario: Master of Disguise," I had lost hope that Nintendo would ever make another Wario game with the same appeal as "Wario Land 2-3" and "Wario World." Of course, Nintendo still hasn't, as "Wario Land: Shake It!" was farmed-out to an unknown company called Good-Feel. They certainly lived up to their name, because playing "Wario Land: Shake It!" made me feel good.

"Wario Land: Shake It!" looks absolutely phenomenal. From the very first moments, "Shake It!"...
