I saw this at Wallmart today (2 days early!), but no one was there to unlock the case, so I couldn't buy it! I was soooo mad!

I honestly didn't want to be correct about it being Wii U's answer to Wii Play but...there you go.

I think the weird sense of humor and ideas make it way better than Wii Play by default though.

I have been playing it for several days now. I love it.

The only complaint I have is that the game is releasing too late into the Wii U's life. It would have helped a lot at launch, since it is amazing at showcasing what the GamePad can do.

There is a ton of content, and is amazingly fun to play with friends for hours (specially if everyone is willing to take turns). It is a very Wario game even though it might feel Wario Ware at times, it definitely isn't and I can see why some people would think that's a bad thing.

Thought about getting it, but the reviews were scaring me....might just go with getting it physical, in case I get bored with it some time later.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Yuuki, and for some odd reason, Megumi (School Rumble)
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.
More Updates: I HAZ YOUTUBE!!!

Review sites: "Game not the best thing ever."

Gamer: Wow this game must be terrible.

I don't think everyone is saying it must be terrible, but why spend money on a decent game when there are many good and great games out or coming? No sense throwing money at something if the person doesn't think it will be worth it.

Well, my example up there is followed to a certain extent in some places...

I guess I have my mentality because I only let reviews affect my decisions if a game is a surprise hit or if there is something unpleasant the review reveals that I didn't know. Generally I form my own opinions based on what I know I like and the facts of the game.

I've seen too many times a game I've thought fantastic ignored by people because a reviewer didn't share my view. Reviews are there to assist people in finding a game they want; I dislike the idea that they are the driving factor behind someone buying a game, and that's why I posted my snark.

Of course the idea of it being thought of as average can lead people to turning their heads towards other games; but people outright dismissing a game based on it's score both happens and is depressing.

In many cases reviews are a driving factor on buying a game or no because there are no other options. A lack of a demo, either on the Eshop or in stores, and the decline of renting games (though that is at the hands of the consumers), leaves few choices. It's basically down to watching YouTube videos and reading reviews. And in the case of why this game is receiving only average reviews, reviews are important.

While I certainly agree someone else's opinion shouldn't control your own, that opinion does have merit. Really only the people who were on the edge of buying or not will be swayed. Others either knew they wanted it, or knew they didn't. The extra details a review divulges don't affect everyone.

The IGN review kinda sounded like, "I like Warioware! This isn't Warioware! This sucks!" They got the number of minigames wrong, and complained about the number of multiplayer games when Smooth Moves has the same amount!

"Good. Everyone's together. Pyrrhon loves a party."
"...It's funny because marriage is terrible!"

I still really want this game

Usually if I've anticipated a game for a very long time I end up getting it anyways, regardless of the reviews.

Then again, I haven't bought a Wii U game since Christmas with New Super Mario Bros. U.
Maybe I'm just desperate for something new to play ;_;

Yup, sounds like an IGN review.

I got the game today, and it's fun!

I've only gone up to Design, but the games I've played up to that point were all good. Arrow is simple, but still fun. Shutter is tricky and clever with its camera-like controls. Ski feels a lot like Captain Falcon's Twister Race from Nintendo Land, but is just as tricky as that game with its annoying-on-purpose camera. Thankfully, I've worked around the camera by mostly looking at the GamePad and only looking at the TV when I have a second or two to look. Patchwork is a nice puzzler that should keep me puzzled for a while. Kung Fu, which the NL review didn't like, actually felt unique to me with its top-down GamePad focus. It made for a nice change of perspective.

Gamer is definitely shaping up to be the best game so far. I would be lying if I said that I didn't feel tense the first time I played it, but after so long, I get used to it and should only fare better from now on. I understand why people would've liked a proper WarioWare game after playing 18-Volt's more relaxed microgame mode.

Design is the worst game so far. My measuring skills were already fuzzy enough, but the game is too simple to really do too much with it to the point that it feels like the tech demo that it was back in E3 2011.

Looking forward to playing more whenever my GamePad gets charged up again!

Normally I'd agree but since nothing else is coming out before Pikmin...

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.

Funny; this game released on June 23, which is the 10th anniversary of Wario World, and that was the first Wario game I ever played. That must not be a coincidence.

I've now played all the games. Ashley is pretty simple, but looks good. I liked playing Taxi with its drive-and-shoot controls and it felt immersing. Pirates is also pretty fun. Bowling, which is another game the NL review seemed to not like, was actually fun and I have a feeling it'll end up being one of my most played games in the collection. Overall, I say my favorite game is Gamer and least favorite is Design.

The ending was great and the credits are very clever and unique. I won't spoil anything, but the credits show more about the people who made the game than just their names and positions.

Now I'll have to start really collecting all the Cluck-a-Pop prizes, which will take a while.
