Not in a good way either, with almost all the reviews of the game talking about how it’s a waste of the Wii U’s potential and doesn’t live up to the WarioWare series before it. Here’s a quick run down of each site’s review scores for the title:
- IGN: 5.1/10 (Mediocre)
- Edge Magazine: 60%
- Official Nintendo Magazine: 75%
- Nintendo Life: 70%
- Cubed 3: 70%
- Nintendo World Report: 5.5/10
- GamesRadar: 2.5/5
- Eurogamer: 6/10
- Joystiq: 2/5
- GameInformer: 8/10 (the one positive review so far)
Yeah, when your best review so far gives the game just 75% (from a magazine officially affiliated with the company no less), you know your game is kind of poor quality. Keep in mind that these ONM folks managed to give Wii Music 80% and Mario and Sonic at the Winter Olympics over 90%, and that should tell you roughly what level of quality Game & Wario is likely at.
Game Explain weren’t 100% positive either, especially not to the single player mode:
So in other words, best be saving your money for a better Wario game or something else on Wii U rather than buy this. Seems like it’s a bit of a disappointment and destined to sell poorly in all regions.
Are you surprised Game & Wario’s been getting negative reviews? Are you potentially still planning to buy it regardless? Either way, post your thoughts now!
