One Hour Review: WarioWare: Touched!

So I said I wanted to do a few older games, and so here I go.


While sitting around after a long road trip, I found this game sitting around my fiancee's house, and decided to give it a go.  I've played other versions of the game and have always liked them, and since I had my DS with me and time to kill, I figured why not? 

I will say that this is a fantastic way to kill a few minutes of down time.  In case you don't know, WarioWare is all about mini-games.  While many Wii games may have ruined the idea of minigame collection for you, this is not that kinda deal.  These games are completely ridiculous, simple, and continuous.   There is no downtime.  You just play until you "die".


Many of the games various bosses had already been unlocked on the cartridge, so I could pick at will the various styles and setups I wanted to play.  I don't know if this is always the case, but I'm glad it was.  I got to move from playset to playset, playing however much I wanted and figuring out which sets I liked best.


While at first I was easily frustrated with the strange and quite vague instructions, after playing through a game one time, it was easy to figure out how to beat it.  Within 30 minutes I had moved from less than 20 games before dying, to nearly 60.  It's this sense of accomplishment that kept me coming back for more.

I feel that this game would be a great purchase, simply because everyone can play it, and it seems to have unlimited replay value.  Also, if you're a college or high school student, and you need something to kill time for the bus ride, this would be perfect.  I don't really think this is a game you would play for longer than an hour at a time, but hey, not all games need to do that.  This is the perfect portable game, and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for something to take up those little spurts of time.
