Rated 5 out of 10 by gamecheck Good but not for me.
I purchased this game and began playing yet I exchanged it after only a day. Don't think this game is bad though. I thought it would be along the lines of Mario and Luigi games but Wario is a completely different charactor and he has his own style and worlds to explore. The animation is superb. The flow of the game is great and the characters are numerous but once you complete a level you need to do it again and again to truely get all the objectives complete. Collecting coins, time trials, hidden areas. All great ideals but the idea of shaking everybag you see is a little frustrating. There are different styles to play like the submarine level, but it didn't have much to say. The worlds looked a little small and the bosses were a little on the easy side. This is a great game for children who are new to Games like Mario. I grew up with the original Mario Games. WarioLand: Shake it, Is a good game. it was not what I expected but kid gamers will love it. A great add to Mario Genre, but one again, not for me.

Well, I'm very happy. After it arrived 2 days early than estimated, (w00t!) I proceeded to jump, bash, and bash my way through the 25 levels. The levels are very well desinged, and you rarely (if ever) get lost. The boss battles are a blast, especially the last boss, the Shake King. The music is pretty good. I especially liked the Wario World music they snuck in there. As with Wario Land 4, the game is fairly short. You can usually breeze through the levels with relative ease. However, if you want to collect as many coins as possible, collect all three treasures, or try to beat some of the difficult missions, the game's replayibility skyrockets. When you beat the game, don't dispair, as various extras are unlocked. I won't tell you what they are, but they provide ample replayability. This is an excellent game, and will provide nostalgia for players who have experienced past Wario land games. As for new players, buy it and experience the wonder of Wario Land!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Gamer's Mom At first .....
I was like WHO in the world is Wario?? Looking at the packaging, I was giving this an absolute no when the little gamer was hinting around for it. Well, being the tremedous Mario fan that I am, I dropped into our local GameStop and it was on display for trial play. After testing it out (had the remote so backward -I thought you had to push down for up, back for forward. I thought that's why it is Wario <with a W> instead of Mario <with an M> I thought you were supposed to do everything backward/ upside down. Sue Me... anyway) I really enjoyed it in the store and decided to make this (unplanned) purchase. After a day or two of having it home, I have not been disappointed. It is very similar to the classic Mario games I remember and love. After more research, I see that Wario is not new (shows how nuch I've been keeping up) and I look forward to the next edition/version.

(Note i am not the regular Ps3 and wii owner... i am his little brother signed on to his username!) I like mario games, and this might actually score pretty well if it was mediocre, but it isint and u should totally buy this game. i will start with the pros. This game is pret-ty over-the-top when it comes to bosses and you will be dissapointed when u find out that there is NO boss replays until you finish the game. There are 5 zones and 4 levels and a boss per zone(not counting pirate ship and final boss area.) and a shop for random stuff like movies and Heart Vessels. This game is MUCH better and easier than the GC oddity WarioWorld. Also, if you are weird and want to play the zone order backwards u can do that But it is frustrating. Levels include rogue trains, peaceful plains,Chinese mountain shrines, and deepsea dives.Cons are that the opening cutsene cannot be skipped, the game is INCREDIBLY short (shorter than the length of the Subspace Emmissary in Brawl) and Wario has a limited move set. U should buy this game b/c it is loaded with secrets, just don't expect it 2 last long.
Rated 9 out of 10 by de Blob guy Wario Land Shake It!!
Wario land shake is an awesome game. Bash, hit and shake your way through the 5 worlds. Just like any wario or mario game there are bosses to fight. The controls are held sideways to make it feel like a classic wario game and the graphics are amazing however the music is okay. The stages are made well and you barely get lost. The game is a decent length and if you're one of those gamers who like to have 100% finding all the treasures is a lot of work. The game can have you on it for a couple hours. There are a few hidden stages that you can find but doing odd things. The game's story line is a bummer. The bosses are a crazy bash and aren't too easy. You can also shake enemies to get them to drop items or healers. I think wario will be a hit for a lot of people.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Supermariob Wario land Great!
Once I played the game, I was pretty happy. The one thing I really enjoyed was the animation and the background (sweet). The challenges are a piece of cake, but story line wasn't good. It was okay, I guess. The music was cool and it felt like there is an orchestra playing ( I'm a rock fan). The controls fit the game because it's 2-D and usually it's like playing Super Mario Bros. NES. It's a lot of fun for mostly all ages. If you are a hardcore gamer and thinking this game might be too easy, well there are challenges that you play that are mostly difficult like don't kill enemies, or finish the time limit and how many coins you need. When you finish the game, you can still play the other secret, but you have to figure it out. Let's just say it's hard.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Gadfly Another winner from the Big N?
Nothing about this game looks unappealing. It looks like it might be running on an engine similiar to that of Super Paper Mario, minus the 3D flip, but I could be wrong. The visuals look good, the Wiimote interaction does not seem forced and the rest of the game looks very promising. I will wait on some reviews before I commit to buy, because there are about seven more great games coming out within a month of this (Tales of Vesperia, Infinite Undiscovery, LittleBigPlanet, Fallout 3, Fable 2 among others) and I think Shake It! will definitely get a little overshadowed.
Rated 0 out of 10 by nintendonick13 Y has nobody posted a preview 4 this game yet?
i think that this game is going 2 be awesome. I don't think that many people have even heard about it since there isn't any buzz going on. This is going 2 be just like the old school mario games but you play as wario and it has a nice twist. Wario has different moves that he can do and different special abilities. Gamestop should go out and put some advertising out on this game because if they do it'll sell like crazy. It's definitely worth ** bucks and by the way it sounds the controls are easy so newcomers will have no problem. BUY THIS GAME...I T I S W O R T H I T !

It is SO sad how there's so many people that don't know anything about this game! This game has a very good story line that everyone will learn to Love (yes... Love), and the game play will be a blast for you as a video game player. It is one of the best Wario games that I have seen in a very long time. If you are reading this I highly support you on buying this game. It is not one of those games that you will regret buying. Thanks for reading on what I had to say about this awesome game!
