Metareview - WarioWare: Smooth Moves

Wario's latest adventure, and the Wii's latest release in quite some time, has had time to marinate in the hands of critics and we're glad to report that most of their opinions fall within the 'absolutely love it' category. We haven't had the chance to try it ourselves, however given our love of previous titles bearing the fellow's name, we're sure to enjoy it just as much, if not more.

Sure, the game does not support 16:9, but can that really get in the way of enjoying the game that much?

  • GameSpot (91/100) informs us of just how wonderful this game really is: "It's a terrific use of the Wii's unique control features, it looks amazing, and in short, it should be a part of your library."
  • Nintendo Power (90/100) also provides much praise for the game: "Though Smooth Moves may not seem deep, the fact that it offers physical play and draws a crowd should make it a permanent fixture in a lot of Wii consoles." [Feb. 2007, p.92]
  • IGN (82/100) is not so quick to praise the game: "It's not perfect, it isn't the best in the series, but WarioWare: Smooth Moves is an essential piece of the Wii collection, as it's as much fun ripping through it in single player adventures as it is to shove the controller off on unsuspecting houseguests or non-gamers months and years down the road."
