Product Details:

Wario Land: Shake It! stars Wario, the smelly, bad-mannered alter ego of Mario. With the Wii Remote controller turned sideways like an old-school controller, veterans and newcomers alike can run, jump and smash their way through hectic side-scrolling stages. Players shake the Wii Remote to help Wario take down his enemies, empty bags of treasure or cause earthquakes. Best of all, there are numerous stages each offering multiple missions to keep players coming back again and again to unlock everything, collect more coins or just improve their best times.

Wario, Nintendo's greedy, uncouth and rude anti-hero, returns to his roots. The Wario Land series is where Wario first appeared, and it's back in all its side-scrolling, platform-jumping glory.

  • With the Wii Remote controller turned sideways, veterans and newcomers alike can run, jump and smash their way through hectic side-scrolling stages. By shaking the Wii Remote, you can shake down your enemies, free coins from treasure bags and even cause earthquakes.
  • Each stage is a masterfully crafted side-scrolling obstacle course of puzzles, enemies and assorted hazards. Every stage holds numerous secrets and treasures to discover (and steal). And each stage has multiple "missions" to keep you coming back again and again to unlock everything, collect more coins or just improve your best time.
  • Wario returns to form, with all the jumping, power-dashing and butt-stomping we've come to expect. This is surly Wario at his finest.
Game storyline: Wario receives an antique globe and telescope that allow him to travel to the once-idyllic Shake Dimension, now conquered by the tyrannical pirate, the Shake King. With the assistance of his longtime rival, Captain Syrup, he must rescue the Merfles, denizens of the Shake Dimension imprisoned by the Shake King. Only by defeating the bosses of all five continents of this strange world can Wario find and confront the Shake King, rescue Queen Merelda, queen of the Merfles, and, most importantly, claim the Bottomless Coin Sack, a never-ending supply of gold.

How to progress through the game: Each stage has Wario navigating an obstacle course of dangers and traps to find an imprisoned Merfle. Once he frees the little fellow, the countdown begins and he must find his way back to the starting gate before time runs out. Wario must also defeat a boss in each continent, and then buy a map of the next continent from Captain Syrup. Once all five continents' bosses have been defeated, Wario takes on the Shake King himself.

Characters: Wario, our "hero." Captain Syrup, a female pirate (and rival from previous games) who aids Wario on his quest. The Merfles, helpless natives of the Shake Dimension, and their queen, Queen Merelda. The Shake King, leader of a ruthless pirate band who has conquered the Shake Dimension.

Special powers/weapons/moves/features: Wario can jump and dash, as per previous Wario Land games. New to this game is the ability to shake the Wii Remote for various effects. By default, a shake of the Wii Remote makes Wario punch the ground, causing a small earthquake and dazing enemies. Wario can then pick up dazed enemies and, with another shake of the Wii Remote, shake them for rejuvenating garlic and occasionally gold. Enemies can also be thrown, and you aim by tilting the Wii Remote.

Wario also takes control of three different vehicles during the course of the game, all of which are piloted in part by tilting the Wii Remote. The controls are standard for a Wii Remote held sideways (D-pad, buttons), but with an important twist: most of Wario's special moves are accomplished by shaking or tilting the Wii Remote. This allows great versatility but without forcing the player to remember complicated button combinations.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Intresting I watched videos on this game and it looks pretty intresting. I wonder if they are making a Wario land shake it 2? This game looks like its full of adventure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One Of The Most BEAUTIFUL Platformers Ever Made After a LONG 7 year break Wario is finally back to his platforming roots in his newest adventure Wario Land Shake It. Never would I have thought that Nintendo would bring this series to the console, but here it is in all of its ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL 2D hand drawn glory. If your a fan of EXCELLENT old school platforming, a fan of Wario's, or both then you'll be in for one hell of a great time here. It first starts with a gorgeous anime intro by none other than anime powerhouse Production I.G., you are introduced to the evil Shake King who has kidnapped and holds prisoner the Shake Dimension Princess and the bottomless coin sack. You see the bottomless coin sack has an infinite amount of money when shook, and as everyone knows Wario LOVES him some riches. One of the Shake Princess's minions escapes runs into Wario and calls on his help. While explaining the situation to Wario (and Wario could care less about what's going on), once he hears of the bottomless coin sack he's up and running to the Shake Dimension to (what else?) fulfill his greed once again. I have to say that new developer Good Feel has hit this one out of the ballpark in terms of production value. EVERYTHING in Wario Land Shake It is hand drawn and looks phenomenal. It's one of the most beautiful platformers that I've personally ever seen. Wario himself along with the enemies, bosses, and levels look and animate flawlessly. Very few 2D games have rarely ever looked this flatout gorgeous. Your eyes will be in for a visual treat. Gameplay wise this is some of the finest old school platforming that anyone could ever ask for. In each level you'll have to make it to the end and free one of the Shake Princess's minions. After freeing them a timer will count down and you'll have to run back to the beginning of the level within the time limit with the minion. Its very fun and frantic. The levels as well as their layouts are done fantastically and no two levels ever feel the same or quite similar. There are some great puzzle mechanics though out each level and certain treasures can ONLY be found when running back to the beginning of the level. All in all GREAT platforming. Sound and music are also excellently done. Charles Martinet returns to do the voice/grunts/laughs of Wario and (again) he's fantastic. Music is very catch, have great variety, and fits each respective level very well. Controls are incredibly simple. You hold the Wii remote sideways (NES style). You control Wario with the D-pad, jump with the 2 button and rush with the 1 button. To shake you.....shake the controller. Doesn't get much more complicated then that. I'm VERY happy with my purchase of Wario Land Shake It. Please do not let this game slip pass your radar. If your interested in the slightest pick this game up. Don't let Good Feel's work be in vain as this is one of the very best games out on the Wii.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bottomless Fun Bag (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.
