Great OLD SKOOL fun !!!,
This review is from: Wario Land: The Shake Dimension (Wii) (Video Game)
If you are expecting Mario Galaxy graphics, you will be greatly disapointed. If you are happy with good old 2D graphics that are just a bit better than a Mega Drive then keep reading. Yes, this game is a good old fashioned platformer brought into the year 2000. It doesn't try to do anything new, but just keep the fun of the old 2D games.
The idea of the game is to hunt for treasure and coins so you are able to purchase the new levels. The treasures can be difficult to locate but this adds great replay value.
The wii-mote is turned horizontally in this game and only the d-pad and buttons are required and obviously the 'shake' motion sensors.
Kids will love this game as they frantically shake the controller to make Wario check the money bags for loot. The motion sensor is also used for other things like aiming and controlling vehicles.
I have to also mention the great soundtrack which blends in perfectly with each level.
The only reason I have not given a 5 star rating is the graphics. The playability is brilliant, but for a modern console Ninty should be aiming more for the next-gen look.
I highly recommend this game if you can pick it up under £20.00.
