Rated 3 out of 10 by dspcgamer I don't like it
The game is about Wario who somehow invents a machine that allows him to enter a TV show. How he could have invented that, I have no idea. He doesn't exactly look like a genius. But I digress. Wario enters a show about a thief that uses a wand, and steals it from him... The hero, or anti-hero actually, is not likeable at all. I hate Wario... Anyways, after exploring maps, you can find chests that can only open after you play a short, unentertaining minigame. The minigames are randomly chosen. There aren't alot of them so you'll have to play them repeatedly throughout the game. Inside the chests you can find gems that give you different disguises, each with its own ability. The main game consists of Wario running around a map for 20minutes jumping around, defeating monsters, and looking for treasure chests. I got bored during the first stage... The game sounded great but the execution was poor. It could have been a good game.
Rated 9 out of 10 by jeskoe My Style!
Nice game... I know most people HATE THIS GAME.... but in my opinion it is actually very nice.... Are you bad at using the stylis? You might not like this at first... of course I was annoyed in the begining because of the difficulty to draw shapes... however if you PRACTICE you can actually learn to love this game very greatly.... I know I did.... this had me occupied for a long time... after I beat it, I went back to look for treasure.... The music is kinda goofy... I like it.... it also includes hillarious treasures... the most random ones you could think of.... weird ones too.. when you get one just go into your treasure catalog and click on it and read its description some are hillarious.... get weird treasures including: Tiger Underwear of Doom, Weighless Backpack, and many others... Give this game some time... you might learn to like it..... have fun....
Rated 8 out of 10 by Culb Wario master of disguise
Wario master of disguise is a pretty long game. Graphics are pretty good, I'm suprised it's DS. I think this game is pretty rare. (hard to find) Wario has the power to change in to different forms by using the touch screen. there are upgrades like the abillity to draw heart to refil your health. It really relates to the DS because it doesn't have a select screen for the form you want to change into, instead you draw a shape depending on what form you want to be. Your forms are really amazing and there are some like astronaut fire breathing dragon and artist. there not forms though, there costumes but there still really cool. The controls are unusual but still very good. The sounds are pretty good. So I'd give this game a 8 out of 10. I hope that you liked my review
Rated 3 out of 10 by Eric Didkovsky Could have been better.
Wario: Master of Disguise seemed to be the Wario game many people were waiting for, that was not the case with this title. At first game seems to have been constructed very well, progressing you along at a good pace allowing you to get better and better while collecting new powers. That is where the problem is, most of the game is stylus controlled which causes an extremely large amount of errors -- say you want to change to a different power, you will have to draw some kind of symbol on Wario, many times you will change into something else or you will attack, it is very random and irritating. The game is also extremely short, only 10 levels and a few "challenge levels", the problem is that the levels are either extremely long or short, making the game much more frustrating than it should be. Most of the bosses are fairly easy to defeat, the only hard one is the final boss, it wants you to change disguises every few seconds which does not work very well, and once you finally beat the boss you won't even want to touch those "challenge levels". All in all, this game is very frustrating and relies too heavily on the touch screen in a way that doesn't work, it also has no replayability, it tried something fairly new and failed.
Rated 6 out of 10 by cocacolakid298 Unusual gameplay and bad graphics
Wario Master of Disguise is one of the few games out there where the main screen is the bottom screen, which makes it a little bit confusing for some gamers who would play this game. The game fetures Wario as 'the purple wind', a character who loves treasure more than anything else. The way you play the game is very strange where you touch the screen and move at the same time. All and all, this is not a very good game, although some of the levels involve thinking and logic to get past which gives the game a reason to play.
Rated 6 out of 10 by G-FRESH Not Great By Any Means...Just Passable
Wario has finally come back to his platforming roots since Wario Land 4...or has he? I can totally appreciate what developer Suzak was trying to accomplish here but the results werent too great, its more subpar than anything (to me anyway). In actuality I would classify Wario Master of Disguise as more of a puzzler than platformer. The point of the game is to get all of the treasures within the levels but you can only get to certain treasures with certain costumes. Its kind of like Metroid to be honest (though nowhere in the same leauge in terms of gameplay). You change Wario into his different costumes by drawing a certain symbol on his head or stomach. The problem with this is that ALOT of times the game wont recognize the symbol drawn and give you the wrong costume. This happens pretty frequently but after a while you do seem to get the hang of it (or a better term would be GET used to it). Graphics are pretty poor. The game just looks really weird, and after playing the Wario Lands games it seems (to me anyway) that the graphical style doesnt suit the game at all. Uninspired would be a good word to describe them. Controls are, again, wonky as alot of times the game recognize the symbol you draw and give you a different costume. Music and sound effects are also pretty subpar with no specific theme worth remembering. Gameplay wise its just OK. Nothing great but nothing really that bad, its just...decent. If your a hardcore Wario fan then you may be kind of dissapointed with this release. I enjoyed it to a certain small degree, but its not anything that I'll find myself playing again.
Rated 0 out of 10 by LillyRox Interesting Idea
It's a good idea. I think the way you change from characters is cool (when you draw additions on the touch screen). But I agree with PopcornMan that, since there's no story line, it's going to lose it's appeal after a while.It's still a good buy, just don't rush through it. Since there are a ton of disguises, there will be a ton of missions to do. BUY IT!
Rated 5 out of 10 by Dman17 Wario misses the mark
What happened Warioland 4 on the Game boy Advance was great! But this game is to hard, confusing, annoying, and boring. Don't get this game. If you are feeling like a Wario game and hace a game boy advance or wii, drop this one and pick up Warioland 4 (for Game boy Advance) or smooth moves (For Wii).

This game sounds interesting. the setup with the thieves wand and how u can change ur disguise has great potential, especially as a de game (the the fact that it is a wand is pretty lame). If this is gonna be like wario land 4, it will probably be great. But they could just as easily make it rememberingly horrible.
Rated 0 out of 10 by E1 One of the best 2007 DS titles
I feel this game is a mix of Wario Land (Platform, Puzzles, and Treasures) and WarioWare (Minigames) an interesting mix as I'm eager to see how well they tie into each other. Luckily this game kept more of the Wario land aspects as it is the fifth Wario Land game.
