If Game & Wario is all Nintendo Wii U owners have to look forward, don't expect to spend much time with the console. While there are a few standouts in this quirky collection of mini-games, it's an overall disappointment due to its lack of ingenuity and the brevity of the content. While it sounds like there's a lot of content here -- a dozen solo games, four multiplayer games, 240 micro-games and Miiverse Sketch that lets you share hand-drawn objects on the GamePad screen -– it won't take you long to unlock it all. And despite the odd highlight, nothing really draws you back to the TV to play again. Perhaps this is why Game & Wario is priced at $39.99 instead of $59.99. Even still, think twice about picking up this disc. Unless you're a huge fan of Wario games or desperate for new Wii U content, leave this one for the bargain bins and wait for better Nintendo titles.
