Excerpt: After finishing construction of his beloved castle, Wario finally settles down. Unknown to him is that an evil black jewel lay under his castle, the same one that previously wiped out civilization. It seems that the curse that this jewel carries lets it turn treasures into monsters. Wario now sets out on his goal to turn all of the monsters back into his adored treasure.
Excerpt: Nintendo's anti-hero, Wario, finally makes his appearance in a game all his own in Wario World . The story, which really only to serves up the reason why your playing, begins with Wario's kingdom and treasure being magically taken from him by an evil jewel that the treasure hunter found in an earlier trip. From that point, he must travel through themed locations, finding his treasures and defeating bosses to continue on.
Pros: Downright fun, Nice level design and catchy music
Cons: Way too short, Continue system is to easy, Repeated enemy types
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Perhaps not Treasure's best effort, Wario World is slick, unadulterated fun, spoilt by issues of longevity and taste. Nevertheless, we've no doubt that Wario World's less than universal appeal will have gamers buzzing.
Conclusion: The actual enemy resistance isn’t all that frenzied. Wiping out large numbers of attacking monsters isn’t hard. There are parts of WW when Wario is locked in an area and given a set time to squash as many enemies as possible. (This could have been a mini-game in itself.) The only real challenges lie with defeating the bosses, who aren’t pushovers but they aren’t that difficult either.
