I Can't Believe I Bought this Game

Nintendo Power mislead me into buying WarioWare: Smooth Moves.  It said it was a good choice for a multiplayer party game.  At first it was fun.  I liked the cartoonish graphics, mini story lines and micro-games.  But you can beat the whole game in an hour.  And the multiplayer mode gets old fast.  It's like playing hot potato with the Wii remote.  I can't believe I fell for it.  I really need to start trusting my instincts.

Can get through story mode fast but it's still a fantastic game. :)

The first thing you need to do is stop reading Nintendo Power :P Wouldn't be the first time they have been misleading about a Nintendo product. 
 
That said, Warioware Touched is a fantastic game.

Well, I loved it.  It was awesome and worth the entry cost.  To each their own.  I really love the absolute  craziness that abounds in a WarioWare game.

I liked the disco guy who danced with kittens, the cheerleader, ... hell, I liked all the quirky little stories.  But I could've watched them on YouTube and saved ... how much did I pay for it?  It wasn't $60 I hope.

I paid about $60 Au for it when it was released.  I have seen it for as low as $30 on clearance, but I don't regret the $60 as we had a blast at the time.

I guess I was mostly disappointed because I thought it would be an enduring multiplayer game that we would play over and over again, like Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

I will agree that the multiplayer could have been done better.  I don't like pass the Wiimote - I want split screen, face to face competition.  It is more hectic and therefore, more fun.
