I forgot to add the game has a distinct Japanese flavour with lots of little cultural references which add to the game even more if you get them. I know I don't get them all, but I do get some and my Japanese friends appreciate it even more!

@Dev
I'm sure it was an issue of low stock. Was this game even marketed on TV?

The bad reviews for this seem to giving bad reviews because the game isn't what they wanted and they aren't paying attention to what the game is. To me, this game is worth every penny. I love miiverse sketch and the corny humour scattered throughout. If you like these type of simple party games, I think you'll love this game. It should be a solid seller and I know it will eat up a lot of my time until some of the more mainstream games come out.

Games like this is a part of the reason why I love Nintendo. No one else does it like they do.

I always try to figure out the reviewer's tone when I read reviews. It's easy for some of the reviewers you hear from a lot: Adam Sessler comes to mind. You kind of already know the guy's past and what he's all about when it comes to games, so it can help you read the review with a bit more knowledge.

Basically, like you said, sometimes it's easy to pick up on the fact that a reviewer is being a bit hard on a game because it just wasn't what HE or SHE wanted from it, not that it's objectively a bad game. When that warning flag goes off, proceed with caution. This happened a lot with the Zombi U reviews. Try to find a positive review, read it, and then hold it in contrast with the negative ones. Does the positive seem a bit TOO enthusiastic? Or does it offer some nice, tempered viewpoints? Reading reviews is a game in itself!

This game is better than any WarioWare game! This is amazing! After playing Gamer, I can't go back. All the other games are great, too! I really don't understand any of the hate towards this game. It really is fun if you give it a chance!

Mainly I was shocked that the credits rolled so quickly after I initially loaded the game just to briefly try it and that so few of the games interested me in replaying them. Gamer is decent, but the trouble is after you've played Gamer for an hour and got Gamer status on everything, there's very little reason to keep playing. It's really only the equivalent of one character in a WarioWare game, so you definitely can't count on this one mode to flesh out the game for you. I had hoped I'd get at least a couple hours of play time out of each mini game, but the only other one I even felt like replaying was the Design game, but there was so little to do, that only held my attention for 20 minutes. Most of the mini games just feel like either the quality or content isn't there. The absolute worst for me was Taxi, as the GamePad simply could not respond to my motions when I tried to aim up at a high angle, and for some reason I found it impossible to drive whenever I needed to look at the map. I also found my center in Pirate would suddenly shift 60 degrees to my right like strange things seemed to be going on with the GamePad. And did we really need Bird & Beans recycled again?

This is possibly the weakest Nintendo-published game I've ever played. The only games I could compare this with at least came bundled with a Wiimote so that you were really only paying $10 for the game. I'm not sure I would even recommend this game at $20. I'd say spend your $40 on eShop cards and get some much better games from the eShop instead.

I WAS going to get this game, but I decided against it. I was all set and ready if the review videos were good, but like @willobee said, I was one of the people on the fence. I think IGN was a little harsh, because there is still worthwhile stuff to do in the game, but I would rate it mediocre as a 6 from what I've seen.
I'm sure tons of people will buy it(and enjoy it) anyway, because it's Wario, $40, or their kids want it.
I plan on buying it when the price goes down if it does, but I'm saving my dollars for Pikmin, W101, etc. games I think are more worthwhile.

Nintendo published titles don't drop in price for years.... so somewhere in 2015/2016 it will see its price cut.

Yeah, I was going to buy Game and Wario just to feed my Wii U something, but looking at all the videos and reviews, I knew I wouldn't be happy with it for $40. I could buy another 3DS game for that...... so I rented it instead. it should be here today actually.

That and Gamefly just sent me Sniper V2... so far Sniper is actually pretty fun, because 505 gimped it, I'm not purchasing it... next time the publisher can make a game equal to the ps360 versions if they want my money.

I was thinking of downloading it until I noticed the price, $79.95AU hells no... So I ended up getting that Trials motorbike & more Game Gear shiz for the 3DS instead

I've found out a way to rack up tokens by playing Bird a lot. Gotta love Pyoro!

I'm still nowhere close to finishing my prize collection, though. This game practically forces you to keep coming back to play again and again just to unlock those weird, but amusing prizes. And even once I do collect everything, I'm bound to come back to mess with the prizes again for just how funny and strangely enduring they are, which would only ensure more replaying.

So I don't understand it when people call this game shallow. The only way this game is shallow is in the amount of stages the games have. Most games only have four to five stages in them, and games like Ashley and Taxi only have three! That's my only complaint about the game. The games should have had more stages, which is why some people have been calling for DLC on Miiverse.

I agree with you. This game continues to exceed my expectations. It's far from a classic IMO, but I've been playing it a little every day. Miiverse sketch is fantastic for relaxing after work and what I find people referring to "shallowness" is the ability for me to play some games with my wife and have loads of fun, even though she doesn't want to have to figure out how to play a game.

To each their own, but if you think you may like this game you should get it or at least rent it. It will take you a few play throughs to get it IMO. Sort of like how it's difficult to explain to people who haven't played on a Wii U, why it's great fun to have a touchpad integrated on your controller.

I really admire how this game can be enjoyed by those watching as well.

I was playing "Shutter" and "Gamer" while my mom was sitting on the couch and she started getting really into it and helping me out. It was a lot of fun

And now we have Nintendo UK's TV ad for the game!

There's a right way to say Wario's name. This is not it.

Game and Wurio. I hate it when people mispronounce such obvious things!

Although I really only bought it to support Wii U during this time of sluggish sales, I found its given me quite a few laughs. I don't regret the purchase but I doubt I'll touch it again when Pikmin 3 comes out.

My copy should arrive tomorrow or Wed.- I bought it in part to support Wii U as well, tho I can see myself and my brother enjoying these types of games. I'm ready for Wii U Party or whatever to come out....

I really think Nintendo should have just gone the eShop route and released some of these games individually.
Gamer, Shutter, and Taxi seemed like viable choices- and potential big sellers.

With that said I love this game mostly for the unlockables :3

I just wish the ideas present in some of the games were more fleshed out to something greater than simply mini-games within a mini-game compilation.

Who knows? That's actually possible. Bird & Beans and Paper Airplane Chase are both Dsiware games that originated as Wario Ware microgames. And since these are bigger games, it makes more sense to sell them individually.

This.... just got mine today. I guess it's okay- something you might pull out when you have friends over who don't play games all that much. Can't judge too much of it b/c I still haven't unlocked the game after skiing, which I actually kind of like. It probably didn't help that I got this with Injustice, which I think is really cool.
