Warioware Smooth Moves,
This review is from: Wario Ware: Smooth Moves (Wii) (Video Game)
This is a great, if bizarre game, it really is a lot of fun. You use the Wii remote in ways you probably would never have imagined (on your nose like a trunk, like a pencil to draw, on your hip to hula etc) to complete mini games.
At first the game is single player only. There is cartoon based story line, and each level has its own weird and wonderful mini story and animation. Each level contains around 10 to 20 mini games, each of which lasts about 5 seconds. There is then a `boss stage' game, which is slightly harder and longer (fighting a samurai, completing a dance routine etc.) you must pass to complete the level. The single player mode is fun, and is also a great way to get to know your Wii and its remote.
When you have completed enough levels (which doesn't take too long) the multiplayer option is unlocked.
It is in the multiplayer mode that the game is truly brilliant however. There are simple games such as darts and (very strange) flying a nose along and catching bogeys.
My favourite is Bungee Buddies - one player holds the Wii remote while the other holds the attached Nunchuk (the lead being the bungee rope...) You then have to jump over various obstacles, if one of you falls down a hole you drag the other back. It's incredibly simple but also incredibly enjoyable, a great party game with lots of people round.
There are also multiplayer games based around the mini games from the single player mode, the best being the race - players take it in turns to pass the remote and do a mini game and earn points. The end game then involves all players suspended over a river by ropes. Depending on your position in the race you have more ropes holding you up. Players then take it in turn to cut a rope - but can't tell whose rope you will cut. So if you come last in the race you can still win if everyone else runs out of ropes first. This mode is fun as it doesn't penalise people who aren't very good at the mini games.
Overall I'd say this game is must buy, its great fun and a great way to show off your Wii to all your friends and family.
