You are not allowed to praise Master of Disguise, in fact I'm tempted to report this post! THIS IS UNTHINKABLE! Unheard of! Disgusting! Putrid! Vile! More things I wish I could express but I can't because it is a children's internet forum!Wario Master of Diguise is awesome, creative, unique and somewhat fun, but it's the worst we have so far.
Wario World was perfect until it the end of the game, but that's the problem, it's too short, and playing the game again is kinda useless.
Wario Land Super Mario Land 3 is heavily based on the Super Mario formula, plays nice, has funny graphics and a good soundtrack, but it feels slow and heavy... some powerups are just a pain and feel more like a hazard than a reward.
WarioWare Smooth Moves was one of the most fun experiences I had on the Wii! However it's not the kind of game you really go back to unless you like to move all the time, some controls are irresponsive and compared to others, this title drags a bit. It just get boring.
WarioWare Snapped is basically a short showcase demo. It was short fun, nice concept but that's it. You play it once and you're done. Plus the camera capture is bad... very bad.
Wario Land 4, although it's my favourite, it's short, like Wario World. But at least you can play it on the go at least 3 times on each difficulty.
Now I could go on, the Wario series isn't perfect, but what makes a game good or bad is what people like or dislike in the experience.
Sorry I agree Wario Master of Disgust is utter shit. KekYou are not allowed to praise Master of Disguise, in fact I'm tempted to report this post! THIS IS UNTHINKABLE! Unheard of! Disgusting! Putrid! Vile! More things I wish I could express but I can't because it is a children's internet forum!
Think about the sins you have committed in this thread and repent. Only then will you find true salvation in the land of Warios.
Really? I agree that Land 3 and 4 improved upon the ideas introduced in the first two games, but I don't get how you can possibly think that the first 2 aged poorly, especially if you think that 3 is perfectly fine and 2 falls way below that. I mean 2 and 3 are so similar that it seems odd to say that only one of the two "doesn't hold up well". And maybe WL1 is pretty different and simpler by comparison to 2 and the rest that followed but it's still a really fun, charming and impressive game considering that it was made for the original goddamn Game Boy. Compare it to most other platformers on the GB and see just how much more polished and expansive it is (SML2 is definitely a good game but man is it short compared to SML3). And of all the Land games, I actually find myself returning to 1 the most often.I'm gonna play advocate and say Wario land 1 or 2. I don't think those games hold up well at all these days. WL 3 and 4 did everything they did better, and even MoD and Shake Dimension are more interesting.
Sure, WL1 was great for the original Gameboy standards, but I don't judge games differently based on which system they were for. I loved it then, but find it boring now, hence me saying it doesn't stand up well. There's nothing at all about it that differentiates it from the hundreds upon hundreds of move-right 2D platformers out on the market now.impressive game considering that it was made for the original goddamn Game Boy. Compare it to most other platformers on the GB and see just how much more polished and expansive it is (SML2 is definitely a good game but man is it short compared to SML3).

Out of all this, and as a fan of Metroid, I'd say the original Metroid on the NES is not only the worst introduction to the series but the worst game in the series as well. Some games have bad first games and even if the game was good and became a classic, it doesn't mean the game is still a good introduction to the series nowadays.So by that logic, would you say that games like the early Zeldas, original Marios, Metroid, Kirby's Adventure, etc. aren't very good games just because we've allegedly outdone them since then? I'm not saying that we should worship all of those games only because they were very influential, since there are still plenty of popular games from back then that actually sucked, (coughdragonwarriorcough) but I still respect games like WL1 for how innovative and influential they were. I mean, if you genuinely find older games boring just because they don't have as many bells and whistles as games do today, then alright, I guess I can understand that. I won't try to sway you from your opinion or anything.
And about my comparing Land 2 and 3, I don't really see what's so odd about that. They were developed closely together by the exact same team, run on the same engine, and generally play very very similarly. I really don't see how 2 is so much more linear than 3, in fact I think the level design is one of the biggest similarities between the two games. They're so similar that I sometimes mix up some levels, thinking that a level from 2 is actually from 3 and visa versa. But that's just me.
This is an interesting point about Master of Disguise and Shake It. The latter certainly played it safe with a lot of the world themes and basic enemies/concepts, perhaps a little too much.The only things I like about Master of Disguise is it is aesthetically better than Shake It. Yeah Shake It has beautiful artwork... but none of it is memorable in a Wario sort of way. None of the character and enemy design stands out as something that says "Wario". But do you know what does? Stuff like Buffy the Dolphin!
Now THAT is distinctly Wario!
That is the kind of absurdity I hope to see in a Wario game.
But asside from the aesthetics of the game... It sucked. Big time. Having to draw tiny doodles on a tiny screen while action is going on? Having to play a dumb touch screen mini game everytime I open a treasure? Pressing Up to jump in a platformer because your other hand has to hold a stylus!?
Awful! Awful! Awful! And it's such a shame. The game had so much potential and so many great new characters and environments.
So Master of Disguise is my pick for worst introduction to the series.
