Summary: Parents need to know that there is some mild animated violence in the game, such as pushing down a person with your palms (holding the Wii controller, of course). This E+10-rated game has an ESRB's "Crude Humor" warning because the gameplay includes pulling a hair out of someone's nose and putting dentures into an elderly woman's mouth. That said, most of the 200 microgames are wacky, silly, and loads of fun.
Excerpt: Wario Ware: Smooth Moves is the first Wario Ware game for Nintendo\'s new game console, the Wii. This is the fourth major iteration (the GameCube remake of the original does not count) of Wario Ware, and like each game before it, puts a new spin on the Wario Ware formula established in the original Game Boy Advance classic Wario Ware, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! In this version, Wario stumbles into a shrine of the \'Form Baton\', which looks suspiciously like a Wii Remote.
Excerpt: When Wario was first introduced as Mario’s crude nemesis back in 1993, no one knew one of his truest claims to fame would be starring in a series of wacky “microgame” collections. With each successive entry, Warioware continues to prove that wacky and sometimes cheesy minigames can be fun as long as they are executed with style. Warioware Smooth Moves is all about using the Wiimote inventively and opens up a portal to the many applications motion control has to offer.
Excerpt: If there's one modern series from Nintendo that embodies everything the company is trying to do with its video games, it's WarioWare. Mini-game collections have been around for as long as I can remember, but the WarioWare series thrust micro-games into the hands of gamers, and how we loved them. What other series presents you with short, snappy games that task you with poking someone's nose, grating an alarm clock, slicing some fruit and waving goodbye?
