WarioWare: Smooth Moves

Smack your friends right in the face!

Wario Ware: Smooth Moves, or as we call it out here, Odoru! Made in

Wario, follows the exact same formula as the other Wario Ware games,

except, of course, for the motion sensor controller and the bizarre stuff

that entails. You will totally smack your friend in the face by

complete accident during the Balloon Fight mini-game.

Start the game, pick a character (all of the cool ones are back, as well as

some new ones), and hit up the rapid-fire mini-games. Initially, the player

uses only basic remote-pointing methods of holding the controller, but as

the game progresses through each character's mini-game set, the game shows

you more and more ways to hold the controller and integrates them into the

mini-games. Before each mini-game, the game tells you in which position to

hold the controller (like gripping both ends like a steering wheel, holding

it at your waist like a sheathed sword, or even setting it down in front of

you). Some of these are pretty fun to watch people try to do.

After cruising through the primary mini-game sets, some more interesting sets

open up. The alien dude has his own unique set using the nunchaku setup.

These mini-games generally rely on manipulating two objects, like opening box

flaps, or doing a swimming motion. These don't come up in the all-game

megamix, so you don't have to keep plugging in and removing the controller


There's another set that's limited to only the more physical games and

counts calories burned. They go on for a longer amount of time so you can

really feel the burn. Yeah.

Is it worth like fifty bucks? I'm not sure yet, since I've only played the

single player so far. But it's definitely fun and gets new players familiar

with the controller. I'll definitely get my buddies together for some

serious multiplayer before the full review, so stay tuned, Internet!
