WarioWare: Smooth Moves shows exactly how much fun motion sensor can be if you do it right.
Gameplay, 9. The gameplay composes of micro-games. In case you're not sure as to what a micro-game is, then let me tell you. In the case of Smooth Moves it's a very, very short mini-game (about 5 seconds on average) where you complete whatever it is you're supposed to do. There are a few themes to some groups of micro-games, but most of them are just random crap, which leads me to the "game for kids with ADD" thing again. The Story mode will involve the use of just about all the different froms of holding the Wii Remote for this game. The real fun is after you beat the game and you can play multiplayer. Some of these multiplayer modes allow over a dozen people to play. Which can really keep a party going.
Despite the game's radical simplicity and randomness, this is a fairly good game. It generally plays real well. The Story mode is fun, and with a group of friends the multiplayer mode is even more fun.
Graphics, 8. Even though most of the game is 2D, these are pretty good graphics when you think about it in technical terms. The visuals are just great. Smooth Modes proves that just because a game isn't 3D, doesn't mean it still can't have good graphics.
Sound, 8. The music is fairly good too. There isn't any voice acting in this game, just words. The sound effects are awesome.
Value, 9. The Story mode isn't particulary long. There are other things to do after you beat the game, however, most of them you probably won't play more than a few times. The multiplayer mode is where it's really at. There are about 7 different modes to play, and they're all pretty fun.
Difficulty, Just Right. Some of the micro-games are easy, and some aren't. The game's difficulty is generally in the middle.
Tilt, 8. WarioWare: Smooth Moves does motion sensor perfectly. Even if you're not a fan, or even dislike motion sensor (like yours truly) you can still easily have a fun time with Wario Ware: Smooth Moves. On a system with too many mini-game games, Wario Ware: Smooth Moves is a game that comes out on top.
