Eyeball Review: Wario Land: Shake It!

Wario: Shake Style!

Wario Land: Shake It!


At A Glance Score: 3 / 5 Stars


Wario Land: Shake It! is perhaps one of the best 2D platformers I have played recently. It's slick cartoony coat of paint gives it an excellent aesthetic to an otherwise played genre. The game isn't without its fair share of problems, but is a definate buy if you can find it at a discount.


The Good

+ Awesome Animation / Graphics - feels like playing a cartoon.
+ Fun Level Design.
+ Shake Controls make this game really fun to play! Honestly this game really benefits from the controls.
+ Missions and Loot add to replay value.

The Bad

+ Merfle Noises are annoying
+ Feels half-done, only 4-5 hours worth of play.
+ Game feels like a chore after a while, same objective on every single map. Go to Merfle, rush back to start of level.
+ ZERO incentive to do any of the missions or collect any of the loot, ruins the point of having those in the game.
