Conclusion: Wario Land: Shake It! may have given you the same initial assumptions I had before playing the game. Its gimmick sounding title smells of the gimmicky motion controlled games of which the Wii has been plagued.
Summary: Wario Land: Shake It! is a classic side-scroller for the Wii starring 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.
