Wario Land: Shake It! (Wii)

 

It seems that not all Wii developers are too busy working on the next big breakthrough in virtual pilates or sleep-training minigames to throw the side-scroller fan base a bone. Japan-based Good-Feel, for example, have been toiling away on the latest...

Wario Land: Shake It! review for the WII

 

Shake your money maker.

Classic platform action with a twist; Great cartoony graphics; Lots of replay value; Nice to be a bad guy in a Nintendo game; Good use of sensor-driven and classic NES-style controls

With the exception of a few instances.; Power-ups, please

Wario Land: Shake It Review

 

Wario Land: Shake It delivers all the action you can - and will - shake a Wii-mote at.

Tight retro-inspired platforming, gorgeous graphics, rock solid gameplay

Some twitchy vehicle controls, no real innovation

Comparisons aside, Shake It stands out in its own right. Shaking, twisting and tilting your way through the funky levels is a blast. Especially awesome are the vehicle sequences - including a few auto-scrolling underwater levels that are so old-school...

Shake that Wii Remote!

Shake It! is played in a similar fashion to Super Paper Mario: turn the Wii Remote on its side and press 2 to jump and 1 to perform a dash attack. By shaking the Wii Remote, players can execute the Earthshake Punch and shake objects and enemies. While...

Mario's antithesis is back with yet another fantastic 2D platformer.

Stunning graphics and great music ; Puzzle-based level designs ; Tons of secrets worth finding

Shaking is a cheap gimmick ; No farting

I heartily endorse this review and/or product. Only one caveat: Wario does subtly fart as part of his idling animation. Well, to be more accurate, he chuckles, and then you hear him fart. I guess he's amused that he's about to stink it up. The old...

You know who's no one's all-time favorite videogame character? That's right, it's Wario. This Bizarro purple-nosed man-thing has been around for over fifteen years, and over that time some people...

Return to simpler times with this motion-infused 2D platformer.

Cool hand-drawn graphics; classic 2D platforming action

Quite short; widescreen support is hobbled

Nintendo wants you to shake what your momma gave you. For Wario's sake, we hope it's a Wii remote.

Wario Land: The Shake Dimension

 

We're all shook up, but are we in love?

Smooth cartoon movement ; Wario's snarls raise a smile ; Gesturing is beautifully realised

Music is '80s sitcom fodder ; A little too easy ; Occasionally dull

As a vibrant, physical piece of work, Shake Dimension is one of the more impressive on Wii. It channels the cheery primary coloured aesthetic last seen in Zack & Wiki, applying it to environments that don’t recycle the old ice/fire/jungle clichés...

Wario Land: Shake It! @ E3 '08

 

The remote's tilt functionality is also used in more subtle ways. For instance, the player shakes the Wii remote to flip around on metal bars like a gymnast to reach higher elevations. Players also control a unicycle and submarine by tilting the remote...

Product Specifications

Wario, Nintendo's greedy, uncouth and rude anti-hero, returns to his roots. The Wario Land series is where Wario first appeared, and it's back in all its side-scrolling, platform-jumping glory.
