    Seems like everyone was waiting for this game to come out for the wii, and the day has finally come. Does any1 have it? Is it good? I keep reading around and people keep saying that if you have a Wii, this game is a must have. I want to get a new game for my wii (sick of playing TP, and Wii sports) and want to see how this is. I'm familiar with how the game works (quick mini games) but I've never played a warioware game before. Sooo...any critics wanna weigh in?

    There's another thread about it here somewhere...it was released in Europe last week, I believe, so a few members have it. I've heard nothing but very solid (not spectacular) reviews about it thus far. I will definitely be getting it in the next few days. I played the first Warioware game for the Gamecube and it was a hilariously fun party game. I'm definitely looking forward to this one.

    I played it at a friends yesterday. The cab driver mini game is awesome. You wont believe how easy it feels turning with the wiimote. There's another starfox minigame where you can tilt it up and down to control ships height (is it called an r wing?)as well as side to side. The next starfox game could be amazing.:eek: The game presents you with games that we could see in a year or so from the big ninty franchises...

    I enjoy it. Though its fairly easy to plough through. Got it Friday last and I've already unlocked all 200 mini games. :eek:

    Just got it about an hour ago. I pre-ordered it at GameStop when I got my Wii on Thursday (along with Wii Play). It's quite amusing. :D The graphics are very bright and lively. Everything outside of the mini-games is in 2D, but its pretty crisp and looks nice. The animations and facial expressions of the characters are good too. You use a selected Mii as your character. For the mini-games, some are 2D, while a couple are 3D. They're fun and everything is really fast paced. I've only played it by myself so far, but I'm sure it'll be way more fun with lots of friends over. Overall, it's a fun game, except I think it's more worth $40 than $50, IMO.

    my biggest gripe.

    No multiplayer? WTF were they thinking ?

    Would have been a great party game/

    I read some other threads on the forums which seemed to imply there would be some multiplayer but you'd have to play all the single player stuff to unlock it. Presumably, this isn't the case though?!?

    Nope. :eek: Look at the box 1 player only :(

    Still a great game - just not without its faults. Some of the more obscure games take 3 or 4 attempts to work out what the heck you do.

    For example

    One games, has you 'shutting up' a shop at closing time. But onscreen instructions just say 'close'. Which I thought it meant, move your remote 'close' to the screen :rolleyes: took me ages that it was 'close' and not 'close' ;)

    Well you can take it in turns to see who gets best score, but it's not the same thing is it.

    According to GamePro, there is a multiplayer mode, but you only use one wiimote.

    Ahhh no multiplayer sucks! :mad: I was expecting that newspaper-covered icon to be a 'real' multiplayer section. Oh well.

    PHEW

    Thought I wasted 30 quid then! Without HD this is the kind of multiplayer I want. Oh and them extra minigame multiplayers (ie. the plane and jumping one).

    as a member of the anti-turnbased-diffamation league and united hot-seat alliance, i protest

    ;)

    (no simultaneous multi is of course a bummer.. that means my next buy is eldee/elebits/edelidu or however it ends up being named in europe..)

    Yea, you have to unlock the multiplayer.

    I picked up my copy today and my roommates have been going nuts on it. The multiplayer is really fun when you have a good amount of people and the game is just funny in general. Very good buy.
