The Japanese pop star is none other than Ayumi Hamasaki, who is (according to her Wikipedia page) one of the country's most famous singers. Well, for how famous she is, she's not used any of her wealth or free time to master the minigames in WarioWare: Smooth Moves. She flops many of the minigames,...

Weally. In posting his impressions of Wario Ware: Smooth Moves, Chris Kohler at Game|Life adds yet another title to his 4:3 Hall of Shame. Joining Rayman: Raving Rabbids and Trauma Center: Second Opinion, Wario's waggle-fest only supports a 4:3 display ratio, generally known as fool fullscreen. Whil...

Smooth Moves is certainly no 'Game of the Year,' but it's hard to imagine a Wii owner who won't be adding this game to the collection. It's almost a necessity, as it unlocks all of the wonderful, albeit odd, potentials of Wii's technology. WarioWare is a madcap tutorial tool. It's unfortunate, as E...

Siliconera breaks down the 12-person gameplay of WarioWare: Smooth Moves on the Wii, including a video of the various games. The main multiplayer matchup requires players to pass a controller between the up-to-12 players when it's the next person's turn. (That seems to make more sense than trying to...

In this latest video for WarioWare: Smooth Moves (which is embedded into the post past the jump, as always), we get a good glimpse at one of the game's lengthier minigames. A rhythm-based, dancing exercise, this minigame looks pretty fun. We already knew that we would be picking this up, but it's n...

Smooth Moves is aesthetically identical to its handheld predecessors. The demo saw us fumbling through a dozen or so of the new microgames, all motion-controlled (no button presses) with the Wiimote. The fickle connection between the Wiimote and its sensor was immediately apparent. It took several g...

TIME recently spent a "hot minute" with Wii's WarioWare. It's more of the same, that is, "manic five-second mini games ... [with] a zany, cartoonish, game- show bent," but now it's all controlled with the wiimote. Just imagine the (reinvented) possibilities: Swat flies Squat-thrusts (weight...

If you've been looking forward to Warioware DS, then stand in line. The original for the GBA was a hit with the fans and the reviewers (and the spouses of fans and reviewers). Its frantic pace was addictive and set the bar pretty high for any sequels. This review round-up (a sequel to our last round...

It'll be another two weeks before WarioWare Touched! is released into the (Western) public's hands, but seeing as the Japanese version has been around for a hot minute, a number of critics have already gotten dirty with the next great DS title. Mostly cheers from the crowd-perhaps a few gripes. Bu...
