Wario Land: Shake It
Description: Today marks the release of Wario’s second entry on the Nintendo Wii. In a traditional styled platforming game, Wario Land: Shake adds a few extras to keep the platforming fresh.
The biggest defining factor of the game is its unique graphical style. It’s in 2D but it looks absolutely amazing. The newest feature is the ability to shake items, and enemies as you progress through the game.
IGN – 8.4/10: “Wario Land: Shake It! is a great new platformer with truly old-school ideals. So if you grew up playing and loving the classics, rest assured that you will love this game, too. It’s got its share of modest shortcomings. It’s not very innovative — you’ve seen all this before in other platformers.”
Gameplayer – 7/10: “Itâ€™s a solid enough production, but whether itâ€™s worth paying full price to experience is something each of you need to decide for yourselves. Speaking personally, weâ€™re inclined to offer you some cheap arse Wario-esque advice, wait until it hits a more discounted price and check it out then”
MetaCritic Score: 78/100
