Game Review: WarioWare: Smooth Moves

WarioWare: Smooth Moves
WarioWare: Smooth Moves is in the same essence like its predecessors. WarioWare has always been a multitude of mini games. This rendition for the WIi is no different, and requires you to set aside whatever pride you have since some of the movements you make could very well make you look totally like a fool. Fast-paced and fast action, it’s loads of fun with some little boy humor tied in all throughout.
GamePlay: The whole singleplayer game requires you to perform some action with the Remote within 5 seconds or else face the consequences. You have four “safes” before the game is over each time, for every level. So use them wisely.
Controls: Most of the play is done through the Wii Remote although there are a couple of forms that require you to connect up the Nunchuks. There were a couple actions that required absolute exaggeration of movements, but otherwise they were very responsive.
Multiplayer: There are seven different multiplayer games to unlock. Each of them required a play of at least one time to unlock another multiplayer game. Probably the most fun was the Darts one that allows you to play regulation darts with up to four players.
Overall: You overlook some of the gross things in the game since they pass by so quickly while you’re trying to keep up with the fast paced action of the game. It’s actually very fun, and very funny (depending on if you’re playing or watching). WarioWare games are usually a blast for everyone around and worth the money if you’re looking for a nice party game. The single complaint? Too short. You can unlock pretty much everything in a matter of two hours or so. That’s all the games. Perhaps it’d be more fun with more competition, or more minigames or even more multiplayer functionality. However, all in all, it was definitely a barrel of laughs for all those around.
